about

Group Du Jour's 1986 album "Forgotten Colors" is available for the first time digitally - having been released originally as a cassette. Four extra tracks adorn this classic offering.

"Subtle and inventive, Group Du Jour gracefully weaves aural tapestries that evoke rich, mysterious images. Daniel Crommie’s dreamlike romanticism (“She sleeps in the pouring rain/all covered in roses of red… Bathed in color/beneath starlight/heaven is the real world”) is delivered in music that blends electronic and traditional forms and textures into a rewarding and highly individual style highlighted by trilling flute, entrancing synths and subtle guitar lacings. Discover this gem in our midst. A-"

Marty Hughly – Willamette Week November 1986
