Colours is considered by some music critics to be one of the band's defining works.
Colours was Resurrection Band's first release for Christian label Light Records, which had up to this time been known as the primary record label for Andraé Crouch and similar gospel artists. Colours is also considered by some music critics to be one of the band's defining works.
Colours begins with the powerful Autograph,' which opens with a full two minutes of exciting guitar riffs before Wendi weighs in with her Grace Slick vocals. The album's title track is an offering of worship that concludes with the poetic refrain, *Whatever one could ask of faith, obedience will give / Together all express the love in hearts where Jesus lives." "N.YC." describes the harsh urban life in the mean streets of Chicago's big sister city, but 'Amazing" expresses wonder at the hope and help God offers those who are metaphorically or literally homeless. "City Streets" and "Beggar in the Alleyway" continue the social consciousness, an attribute of Resurrection Band's albums almost totally absent from other mainstays of Christian music at the time. American Dream" predicts an apocalyptic nuclear holocaust: It will happen / Just don't think about it!" It is significant for being the first of many songs that Resurrection Band would write about the moral rot at the center of America's political and media culture, indicating a much more progressive political worldview than most Christian musicians would dare sing about at the time. Overall COLOURS embraced a more radio-friendly hard rock and sound with this album, which is a mix of personal reflections on God's sovereignty and love.

Resurrection Band History
Forming in the early 70’s under the name “Charity” as part of a Christian community in Milwaukee, the band featured husband and wife lead singer, Glenn and Wendi Kaiser. After a move to Chicago and a change of name to “Resurrection Band” the group released a now rare cassette of demos called “Music to Raise the Dead.” That tape would actually contain a long time live favorite “Quite Enough” that would not be officially recorded and released until their live album, “Bootleg” more than a decade later.
In 1974 the band recorded their Music To Raise The Dead cassette on a 4-track recorder using headphones in a basement. It pure Led Zeppelin sounding with some amazing blues and rock, fuzz guitar and now-vintage amps. It would be the start of 15 full length albums, the best darn festival ever (Cornerstone) and a load a Glenn Kaiser solo albums to come later.
In 1978 the band was signed to the Star Song label that also includes Petra as an artist. It seemed like it would be a great fit as it was hoped that those at Star Song would understand the aggressive ministry, music and message of the band. But that relationship would only last for two albums before moving to Light Records for their next 3 releases, Colors, Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore and D.M.Z before moving to Sparrow in 1984. At that point the band name was shortened to REZ or REZ Band for their remaining albums
