Inspiration can strike creative people in many different ways, and colours have certainly made an impression in the minds of many talented composers. Surprisingly most of them seem to have been besotted with the colour blue, which accounts for the majority of numbers chosen for this collection. Rather than go for equality, with each colour of the rainbow assuming its rightful place, the choice has been made purely on musical merit, which means that there are some surprising omissions - green, for instance. Against this there are quite a few pleasant surprises in store plus - as usual on most Guild Light Music CDs - some first appearances on commercial recordings.
