For Immediate Release
Three Colors CD Retrospective, One Big CD, Out Now!!!
Three Colors, one of the premier bands that help make the Boston music scene legendary in the 1980s, has a long-awaited CD retrospective in stores this week. Entitled One Big CD, this 19 song effort features the entire self-titled debut ep, most all of the second album (This is Norwood) and a host of rare and previously unreleased tracks. Besides mainstays such as One Big Tree, Next and Raise The Roof, there are many gems to discover like the non lp single In Orbit and the previously unreleased Mac and Martha and One More Shovel Full Of Love. The video for One Big Tree is also included on this CD so fans can watch It on their computers.
Three Colors was formed in 1981 at Connecticut College in New London and relocated to Boston shortly thereafter. The group emerged as one of the major forces in the Boston music scene and had a breakout hit with One Big Tree from their debut. Word travelled fast across the pond and the group relocated for a while to England where they recorded, This Is Norwood. Upon their return the band continued to enjoy regional success with airplay and coverage in all area papers and magazines. Inexplicably the band never broke out nationally and after a seven year run finally called it a day in late 1988 and, for the most part, are still good friends. In fact, Chris and Hub have continued to work on projects together including Chris' 1992 Elektra debut Be Headed and the 1998 CD, HUB, released on Slash/London and produced by Chris. Dana, of course, went on to rock stardom with Boston's own Morphine.
From the opening notes of One Big Tree the listener will be brought right back in time. Twenty years have passed since the heyday of Three Colors but the music sounds just as fresh today as it did then.
