Limahl – Colour All My Days Indonesian Issue Cassette Album
Today we want to share with you a very odd item indeed.
Anybody who had parents that worked overseas in the 1980’s may well have seen many similar cassette tapes as the one we feature today, usually, although not exclusively, originating from Saudi Arabia.
Although similar in presentation, this tape is actually a supposedly officially licensed Indonesian product.
We all know Limahl’s second album, Colour All My Days, and are more than familiar with the songs upon it. It seems that ‘GL Records’ (not to be confused with Gold Legion from the USA) are not so familiar with Limahl and his work, as this album has a very peculiar track listing!
GL a.k.a. ‘Golden Lion’, are an Indonesian bootleg label releasing unofficial cassette tapes (and later CD’s) aimed at the South East Asian market.
Housed in a clamshell type lined box (a bit like a ‘mini version’ of a rental VHS video box), the cassette proudly bears the logo of Golden Lion Records and their slogan – “The Ultimate Recording”.
Ultimate or not, the Indonesian Colour All My Days does have something extra that the EMI release in the UK did not, namely half of debut LP Don’t Suppose thrown into the mix! There is also a fold out lyric sheet.
