OUR MUSIC IS RED WITH PURPLE FLASHES
Limited double vinyl LP pressing. Titled after a famous quote from guitarist Eddie Phillips and released just before The Creation finally achieved its three-decades-delayed U. S. breakthrough when Wes Anderson used the band's trademark hit "Making Time" in his 1999 film Rushmore, Our Music Is Red With Purple Flashes outdoes all previous Creation compilations. Collecting every studio track this band recorded in it's original '60s incarnation, including rarities like the rarely-available but bittersweetly beautiful "Sweet Helen" along with legendary mod-psychedelia guitar-blast classics like "Making Time", "Biff Bang Pow", and "Painter Man", and including rare photos and extensive liner notes, this is a textbook example of how to do a compilation. No fan of '60s U. K. pop should be without this record.
