Colours Complete Recordings 2008

May 12, 2010

Band: Colours
Album: Love Heals: The Complete Recordings
Year: 2008
Genre: Rock
Home: California
Label: Now Sounds

Chatham-Kent Connection: Jack Dalton (Guitarist/song writer) was raised in Erieau, moved around the U.S.A. and now resides in Detroit.
 The Dalton family is well known in Erieau, as Mr. Dalton was known for years as Detroit’s Irish Tenor. The whole family are very musical and have entertained there neighbours with playing, singing and dancing. Jack was a member of the Dalton Boys, with his brothers Wally & Dan. The trio was booked to open Randy Sparks’ new club, Ledbetter’s, in October of 1963. 
Brother Dan Dalton also had a great time in the music scene as a member of the Back Porch Majority, playing banjo and 12-string guitar.

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The 16-page colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and comprehensive liner notes that feature the participation of original band members.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)

The Colours 1968 album

May 11, 2010

Band: The Colours
Release: The Colours
Year: 1968

Chatham-Kent Connection: Jack Dalton was raised in Erieau. Jack Dalton started playing music with his four brothers, The Dalton Brothers, when he was six years old. They performed the “banquet circuit” with their father, Walter Dalton (aka Michigan’s Irish Tenor), who also had his own radio show. “The Colours” were a West-Coast Psychedelic Pop act that came together in 1967 at the request of songwriters, “Jack Dalton” and “Gary Montgomery”, two hard-working, former Motown Records songwriters who also penned songs for “The Turtles”, “Nino & April” and “The Moon”.

Jack’s Background: When Jack was 17 years old, he and two of his brothers, Wally and Dan, formed a folk group called The Dalton Boys, which became successful performing at concerts and playing nightclubs such as Philadelphia’s Latin Quarter, New Orleans’ Playboy Club, and New York’s Bitter End. They were the first group to record ”San Francisco Bay Blues” on Decca Records. The Dalton Boys soon appeared on several national TV shows such as ABC’s Hootenanny, The Mike Douglas Show, and Mike Wallace’s PM East.?? 

After The Dalton Boys retired, Jack collaborated with a new writing partner, Gary Montgomery, and they signed with Motown Records, recording original songs, continuing with the name The Dalton Boys. Jack and Gary moved to the West Coast and became staff writers for White Whale Records, Robbins Fiest and Miller, and wrote for The Turtles, The Outsiders, Spiral Starecase, and April and Nino.

Jack and Gary then formed a rock group, Colours, and  had radio airplay with a single called “Love Heals”  b/w Bad Day at Blackrock Baby on Dot Records. After the group disbanded, Jack returned to Detroit and started a jingle company with Jeff Parsons. The Road Company quickly became the largest jingle company in Detroit, with Jack writing, arranging, playing, and singing on most of the commercials.

In 1980 Jack returned to his ”first love,” performing. He joined Doug Jacobs’  Red Garter Band and played 250 one-nighters annually. Jack continues to make his living in Detroit, singing and playing guitar ?and banjo in Detroit-based bands as well as being booked by Detroit agents as a solo performance act.

  Twisted Alliance was formed over the summer of ’07 by former guitar player/vocalist Trevor and Drummer/vocalist Austin. After adding a few members (and losing them) they finally came up with a solid line up.
  Twisted Alliance has shared the stage with great bands such as Gob, The Johnstones, Ashes of Soma and many more. They continue to write new songs and prepare for shows in the Chatham Kent / Windsor music scene.

The Golden Eagles 2009

March 8, 2010

Band: The Golden Eagles
Release: The Gold Album
Year: 2009
Formed: Early 2008
Home: Windsor/ Chatham-Kent

Members:
Jamie Reaume – Vocals and guitar.
Neil Tupling – Bass (ex-Lost Souls Division)
Geoff Yunker – drums.

 Notes: Some of you may know singer songwriter Jamie Reaume from his previous band Foreign Film Star, or saw him play a solo acoustic show  in Chatham or Windsor. He used to often play at the Elephant’s Nest and other venues while growing up in Chatham.
 Jamie is currently living in the Windsor area and his new band involves musicians from there as well.
   This is a great indie CD worth checking out. Their first single “Cell Phone” is a great indication of jamie improving consistently with his song writing and song structures. This track alone shows signs of a band who gets it and has worked hard to drop tracks that simply rock without trying to over play, be too artsy, or too safe.

Track Listing
01 Cell Phone
02 See You Coming
03 Bird Of Prey
04 Go
05 Surfing At The Circus
06 Don’t Wanna Know
07 Twenty Something
08 Dr Shark’s Leather Couch
09 The Duke

The Gold Album was recorded from November 2008 to March 2009 at Sharktank Studios in Windsor, Ontario and was engineered, mixed and mastered by Mark Plancke. The album features guest appearances from Sara Hines as Sally, Mark Plancke as Dr. Shark and Jose Ramirez as El Diablo.
