Icehouse- Man of Colours
Some of you may laugh at me for owning an Icehouse record, but I still really do dig this album.
When I was a kid, I loved the hell out of the song "Crazy". I only had a 45 for it, but I'd play it over and over. I'm sure I had a crush on some girl at the time that wasn't crushing back.
So when I started collecting vinyl heavy duty again, I really had a hard time finding this particular album. You see other Icehouse releases constantly, but it took me a real long time to find this one. I still have only seen it once in all the used bins I've looked through.
Being that I did only buy it for the song "Crazy", I gotta say that my favorite song on the record is actually "Electric Blue". I listened to this record late last night, and that song has been in my head all day. In fact, I did play it twice.
It's not a great album, a little uneven since Side 1 dominates Side 2, but I really enjoyed it. Now I'm contemplating getting the other Icehouse albums that I always see in the bins.
