Estimated Arrival: Between Feb 02 and Feb 06. *ETA to USA Only
Rose Colored Glasses is the 1978 debut album by country music artist John Conlee. It was released on ABC Records, and was his only disc for the label; he would move to MCA Records the next year.
The album was a commercial success, peaking just outside the country top 10 (at number 11), and would be his highest charting album until 1983.
It featured 3 singles; the Conlee-written title track reached number 5 in America. The next single, "Lady Lay Down" became a number one in the States, while going to number 2 in Canada. The last single to be released from the record, the Conlee-written "Backside of Thirty" (in 1979) was also an American number 1, while reaching number 5 in Canada. Among these singles, "Backside of Thirty" had originally been released in 1977, but it did not chart at the time.
Kurt Wolff and Orla Duane, in their book Country Music: The Rough Guide, described the album's cuts as "among Conlee's finest, including the title track and especially 'Backside of Thirty'."
