The Colour Field – Virgins & Philistines


From slap-bang in the middle of the dreaded 1980s, here’s Terry Hall’s post-Specials, post-Fun Boy Three project. I bought this cos I still have a soft-spot for the hit single “Thinking Of You” – an elegant, bossa-tinged slice of purest pop that seems a long way from the empty bombast of most of their contemporaries of that period. The whole album, produced by Hugh Jones, is still a pretty good listen, particularly the follow-up single “Castles In The Year”, with plenty of Terry’s sharp observational lyrics on offer.
