Seasons In Color - 1991 Nothin' But New



ARTIST: Seasons In Color
ALBUM: Nothin' But New
LABEL: DAO Records
SERIAL: -
YEAR: 1991

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:

LINEUP: Goth * Jaeger * Kromp * Meier * Gerdes

TRACK LISTING: 01 Chance Sweet Freedom * 02 Lean On You * 03 Newspapers Life * 04 Hold On * 05 Love Grows * 06 Doktor Chicago * 07 Christine * 08 Still Waitin' * 09 Stay In Time


Background
Not a lot is known about this one-off rare German outfit. However, if you're into a band that trades in a load of keyboards in a similar vein to Talk Of The Town, Javan, Rescue, Douglas and Holland's very own Rubicon, then Seasons In Color should be on your 'investigate now' list.


The Songs
From the opening parping blast of 'Chance Sweet Freedom' to the epic 6 minute wonder of 'Stay In Time', this band score highly throughout. One thing that is noticeable, they do not sound German. 'Lean On You' is an amalgam of rock styles that combines many influences. Talk Of The Town and Journey being two of them. An awesome pulsing bass line underpins 'Hold On', another track with glorious washes of keyboards and lead piano. 'Doktor Chicago' has a west coast flavour but again with that debut era Talk Of The Town sound covering all bases. Of the ballads, 'Still Waitin' is the pick of the bunch, maintaining the balance between soulful and cutting edge. The other two ('Love Grows' and 'Christine') are a bit syrupy - even for my tastes. However the killer track is the finale of 'Stay In Time'.. a classic tune indeed!


In Summary
For the purist AORsters among you, Seasons In Color comes highly recommended. As a band they've got the mix between guitars and keyboards just right, and to top it off, the vocals are the icing on what is a classy cake. Track down at all costs, even though it is an extreme rarity; as only 500 copies were ever manufactured.

My most expensive CD I ever bought, but with no regrets! Great stuff!

Just checked on Ebay, still a few copies going, but it won't come cheap. Upward of $50.. probably the going rate.

This one practically became my cd of an entire summer back a few years ago. Utterly indispensable album for sure. People who like Dominoe's album 'The Key' (1990) will certainly dig this classic.

I tend to think this cd/album seemed to just crop up like magic to the eyes of the AOR collector public a few years ago (or well, quite a few now, given the date of your review) as i don't remember ever hearing about this album at any AOR sites or seeing it on ebay ever in the earlier-mid 2000's?

As for the price, a German seller has sold several in just the last months for 19.99 buy it now, so i'm slightly doubting there were really only 500? Maybe somebody booted it and this is the reason? I paid about 35 bucks for it around 3-4 years ago. However whatever swazi paid, i can see he wouldn't hold regrets as the album is that good.
