Orange Colored Sky (CD)
ORANGE COLORED SKYs roots go back to 1962, when Larry Younger formed The Fabulous Epics in Erie, PA. The Epics soon moved to New York City and became the house band at the world-famous Peppermint Lounge. Years later, Tom Hanks would call them The Wonders and tell their story in his film That Thing You Do. In 1968 the band moved to Southern California, was signed by Universal, and became ORANGE COLORED SKY. SKY hit big in Los Angeles, appearing in the movie "The Love God" with Don Knotts, in TV commercials with Petula Clark, on The Steve Allen Show, and in all the hot clubs. SKY soon became regulars at the Flamingo, Harrahs, and other major venues in Las Vegas, Reno, and Lake Tahoe. In 1970 SKY replaced The Carpenters as Burt Bacharachs opening act. SKY also toured with Frank Sinatra and assisted Governor Ronald Reagans re-election campaign. SKY released the 45 RPM single "Help" in the early 1970s on the People label, but it was the B side, "Press A Rose", that placed on the national charts. Larry Younger and Tony Barry shared lead vocals; unfortunately, Larrys funky, soulful performance couldnt overcome People Records business problems.
