Percy Hill has released their 1998 album Color in Bloom on vinyl. The new vinyl release is a limited run and it was printed at the Burlington Record Plant.

The album was recorded in Rochester, N.H. with engineer Chris Magruder.

“I think with Color in Bloom, we were able to create an album with a full narrative quality from start to finish.” said guitarist Joe Farrell via press release.

“We definitely nodded toward that original vinyl era in the sound and writing of it,” bassist John Lecesse added (press release). “I’m sure we wanted to put it out that way when we made it. We’re really glad we finally got to see that day and we hope everyone enjoys listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it.”

The band planed on doing vinyl release parties at Nectars in Burlington, Vt. and at The Stone Church in Newmarket, N.H.; however, due to the coronavirus pandemic, both of those shows were postponed.

As of now, the band returns to the stage Aug. 7 at The Stone Church and Aug. 8 at Strangefolk’s Garden of Eden Festival in Jay, Vt.
