Pools Of Blue

Album: The Harvest Years (1991)
  • According to the December 1996 issue of the fanzine Nova Lepidoptera, this John Lees composition was recorded as long ago as 1968 but lay undiscovered in the vaults for over twenty years until fan club member Steve Hibbard acquired 3 seven inch acetates; the other two were "I Can't Go On Without You" and "Eden Unobtainable"; all three songs were included on the 1991 compilation The Harvest Years. "Pools Of Blue" is about the world seen through the eyes of a blind girl - so to speak; Lees said it was the one song he would like to re-record, preferably with an orchestra. The band made several attempts to record it in the early seventies but were never happy with the result. >>
