Ruphus is widely regarded as one of the flagships in Norwegian progressive music. A band that through its first lifetime from 1970 to 1981 had more members than a football team, and developed from playing hard, progressive rock to becoming a leader in jazz rock.
Karisma Records started in 2019 to re-release the entire six-album back catalogue of the ’70’s Norwegian Prog legends RUPHUS. All the albums are re-mastered by Jacob Holm-Lupo, who is working with new digital transfers from the original master tapes which are stored in the Norwegian National Archives for posterity.
Throughout their first incarnation, which lasted from 1970 to 1981, RUPHUS developed from playing hard, progressive rock, to becoming one of the leaders in the jazz rock genre, whilst fielding a lineup that contained more members than a football team.
Ruphus “Flying Colours” was originally released in 1978.
This Ruphus “Flying Colours” CD is a remastered version on CD in Jewel Case. Remastered by Jacob Holm-Lupo (White Willow, The Opium Cartel)
