CHRISTOPHER COLT - "Virgin Sunrise" / "Girl In The Mirror" (Decca F 12726) January 1968
This performer is a complete mystery to me and I suspect he was for the people who compiled Rubble #17 as their liners don't reveal anything about Christopher Colt at all. The B-Side 'Girl In The Mirror' is equally compelling. I recently acquired this 45 and it's currently valued at about £40 (Record Collector Price Guide 2014). As you know this is just a 'guide' price, expect to pay a lot more if you ever find a copy for sale.
'Virgin Sunrise' is a beautiful homage to a British Autumn morning and the evocative lyrics really colour the scene of a new or 'virgin sunrise' superbly. The song is pure psychedelic period Donovan, full of charm and completely beguiling.
