New Colony Six

Colonization

The Colony launched their second album campaign right on the heels of their debut with a 45 version of “Elf Song (Ballad Of The Wingbat Marmaduke),” undoubtedly their most deliberate take on British rock idioms, replete with faux English accents. Released in 1967, Colonization is a full on pop-rock tour de force that transcends garage rock convention making use of softly sung ballads, perfectly harmonized vocals, and an occasional horn section. An effective distribution deal with Camero-Parkway helped propel the album’s second single “Love You So,” to #61 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the New Colony Six made another foothold in their climb into the national spotlight.
