Ruphus is a progressive rock band from Oslo, formed in 1970 and dissolved in 1981. Ruphus was one of the flagships of Norwegian rock in the 70’s. All Ruphus albums now come in a new and improved remastered version. Ruphus is a prime example of proggy Norwegian 70s Jazz Rock. The music is for fans of Soft Machine, National Health, Caravan and 70s Prog / Jazz Rock in general.
Flying Colours is the fifth album from the legendary Norwegian prog/jazz rock band Ruphus, originally released in 1978. After living in Germany for a while, the band had developed a dedicated following there. In fact, they did so much touring in Continental Europe, to the extent that many Norwegian record buyers thought that Ruphus was a German band!
The line-up on Flying Colour was the same as on its predecessor Inner Voice: Kjell Larsen (guitar), Asle Nilsen (bass), Sylvi Lillegaard (vocals), Thor Bendiksen (drums) and Jan Simonsen (keyboards). Once again, the album was recorded in Rosenborg Studios, engineered by Hans Petter Danielsen. Remastered by Jacob Holm-Lupo from White Willow and Opium Cartel and many more. Flying Colors
