This is one of a number of Coloured Rain LP releases issued in generic customised sleeves. Although the front cover states "FOR RADIO USE ONLY" at the top right, and "Coloured Rain promo" at the bottom, these were never promo items but were on general sale at inflated prices from the label's mail-order service. Some copies came with an extra voting card, which explains the "Coloured Rain Charts" pretend promo copy series.
Two pressings exist...
Pressing 1: printed orange labels
Pressing 2: black labels (some written on with wax marker)
Standard series sleeve (written on with wax coloured marker) with insert.
The insert credits the album as: Interpreted by Captain Ilor, Swar Samrat and Friends.
Lots of screaming guitars, bubble basses, hammond sounds and weird stories about a funky refrigerator named Erwin and other psychonautic events.Only 100 copies (audiophile 180-gram) of this megascarce prog/psychrock highlight were manufactured in handlettered laminated promo covers with insert. This testpressing was produced because the planned cover painting by cartoonist GERD BAUER did not get ready and the musicians could not wait any longer, but were not satisfied with other design concepts. We’re still waiting for the comic cover!
The video is from Captain Ilor's 1982 album
