1993 Robert Ellis Orrall – Flying Colors

Flying Colors is a studio album, released in 1992, by American country music artist Robert Ellis Orrall. Although it was his fourth studio album overall, it was his first and only solo album of mainstream country music, as opposed to his more rock-oriented albums in the 1980s. The tracks “Boom! It Was Over”, “A Little Bit of Her Love” and “Every Day When I Get Home” were released as singles.

Although Orrall never recorded a solo album after Flying Colors, he would later team up with Curtis Wright to record one album as the duo Orrall & Wright. In addition, Orrall has recorded several albums of indie rock as a member of the band Monkey Bowl.
