Offered for sale is a limited edition half speed mastered Canadian audiophile pressing of True Colours by Split Enz.

About this copy: This copy of True Colours is a 1980 Canadian pressing on the A&M label, issued as part of the label’s short-lived Audiophile series.

Unlike stock (non-half-speed mastered) copies, this version of the album does not feature a laser-etched disc.

While this is technically a Canadian release, the disc was pressed in Japan by JVC using the same proprietary “Supervinyl” compound that they used to press albums for Mobile Fidelity.

The cover is M-.  The disc is M- and looks like it may have been played no more than once.  Clean disc!

A beautiful copy of one of the harder albums to find in the A&M Audiophile series.

Background: Released in 1980, True Colours was the fifth album by Split Enz.

The album reached #38 on the UK album chart and #40 on the U.S. chart.

Allmusic.com gave True Colours a 4 star review:

Split Enz found their place in new wave with True Colours, shedding the eccentricities and excesses of their past in favor of bright, highly memorable, Beatlesque pop. The album also marked Neil Finn’s emergence as a great songcraftsman — his infectious “I Got You” helped to push the album and the band to international success. Both the single and the album stand as high points of the new wave era.
