Various ‎Artists – "Cold Waves Of Color Volume 4" (Color Disc ‎– COLOR LP 06) 2016

Yet more minimal synth cold wave classics from Color Tapes' classic early eighties period. All the usual suspects are here again.....most of them involving Gary Ramon (latterly of The SunDial). All previously available only on the medium of cassette, and have now been expertly remastered from the original masters to appear sparkly and as crisp as newly born babe. Its almost incomprehensible that these babes are now approaching forty years old; but they are!

I thought that by now I heard all the relevant minimal electronic (pre midi) music and then you post all these beauties!

Sadly, there's only one more to go...vol 5, later today.

These are great, thank you.

I know you've previously posted Color Tapes - have you got any more, especially the compilations A Fistful Of Color and An Hour Of Color Volumes 1, 2, or 3?

Jonny Zchivago said...

I got 'Purple Twilight', 'An Hour Of Color vol.2 &3'...and there maybe another that i can't remember.

Chris Sessions said...

Can't wait to listen to these, thank you

W. said...

Purple Twilight was the one that got me into Color - and I would love to hear any you've got. Cheers.

Well, get in the DeLorean and tell those spotty brats to produce loads more of it.
