Discography
1968
- Self Titled
1969 – Atmosphere
2008 – Love Heals: The Complete Recordings

Colours launched onto the scene in 1968 with a stunningly glorious psychedelic masterpiece of L.A studio wizardry. A super group before the name was coined, Colours was the brainchild of Gary Montgomery & Jack Dalton, two hard-working, former Motown songwriters who also penned songs for The Turtles, Nino & April and The Moon. This magical mystery tour-de-force of psychedelic Beatlesque pop also features the talents of Derek & The Dominos bassist Carl Radle.

This first-ever CD issue of their long-out-of-print albums (Colours and Atmosphere) is supplemented by long-lost 67 Dalton & Montgomery recordings cut just months before they formed Colours. 1969′s Atmosphere features former Beach Boy David Marks around the same time he was a member of The Moon another band with many connections to Colours.

The 16-page colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and comprehensive liner notes that feature the participation of original band members. Now Sounds, the new imprint from Cherry Red, was established by Steve Stanley, producer of over 50 Rev – Ola titles.

Notes: Colours also had members from Derek & The Dominos and The Beach Boys in the band. Signed to Dot on the basis of their sitar-and-bagpipe-hued novelty 45, Brother Lou’s Love Colony. Cooked up, at times, under the all too discernable influence of the Fab Four, Colours is unashamedly Pepper-esque in its use of lavish arrangements recorded in no-expense- spared fashion with the 36-piece LA Philharmonic. By contrast, Atmosphere is a darker, less generic and more subdued recording. Love Heals also includes Dalton & Montgomery’s White Whale 45 and three previously unreleased demos which pre-date Colours’ mid-1967 formation. (Source)

Genre: Blues Rock
Chatham ConnectionGuitarist Dan Noordermeer is from Chatham.

May 2009: Jeff Healey’s “Mess of Blues” wins Rock Blues Album Of The Year at the 30th Annual Blues Awards in Memphis, TN THE BLUES FOUNDATION.

2009 JUNO AWARDS : “Mess of Blues” Nominated for “Blues Album Of The Year”

  The band continues to perform and keeping Jeff’s music alive at festivals throughout the world.

About Dan: Guitarist extraordinaire Dan Noordermeer has also been performing in the “Dave Murphy Band” for almost a decade, and continues to dazzle audiences with his formidable talents. Originally from Chatham, Dan now resides in Hamilton. Dan is known for his Samson-like mane of hair and his wicked sense of humour. Unlikely as it seems, Dan was a full time country musician for many years before joining the band. But for those familiar with his playing it’s no surprise, since he has an uncanny ability to play every style of music with incredible authenticity, passion and virtuosity. www.davemurphyband.com

Notes: Mess of Blues contains ten cuts, all of them chosen by Healey from what he considered “audience favorites,” rather than his own or his fine band’s preferred tunes. Four of these were recorded in front of audiences at the Islington Academy in London and, appropriately enough, at Healey’s Roadhouse (his club) in Toronto. The other six were cut at Studio 92 in Canada by Norm Barker and Richard Uglow.
