Out-of-print CDs Sought

I’m wishing to acquire some of the albums in the long-since-out-of-print Maranatha! Colours series—specifically titles that were by or included tracks by Harlan Rogers and Smitty Price.

What’s challenging for me is that I don’t possess a complete list of albums they were involved with. All I know is that I already have Hymns In Colour, Timeless: Hymns In Colour, and The Colours of Praise: Two.

The only other album I know of by Rogers and Price is simply titled Praise. It appears as though Praise may possibly be the predecessor to The Colours of Praise: Two and there’s no such title as The Colours of Praise or The Colours of Praise: One. Maybe I’m wrong. Update: turns out maybe I am, indeed, wrong. I found on Gracenote a listing for Colour of Praise by various artists. Note the lack of an ‘s’ at the end of Colour, and that this album is by various artists, even though Colours of Praise: Two is by Rogers and Price.

Rogers and Price also appear on several compilation sampler albums. I already have Spectrum and Reflection, and a copy of The Gift: A Colours Christmas is on its way to me.

So, that’s soon to be six I have in my possession. I found a copy of Praise for sale, but the dude on the eBay store is asking 40 bucks for it, plus shipping. I nearly snatched it at that price, but thought better of it. Update: I found it elsewhere, so I now have Praise as well.

If you have information where I can get any other albums or compilations, or if you have a copy you’re interested in selling, please identify yourself in a comment to this post. As always, your e-mail address will not be made public.

Update: In the months since I made this entry, I’ve found many more albums in this series but have not yet found an exhaustive list of all the albums that were published in the series. I’m still keeping watch.

As of April 8, 2006, I now have the following:

  • A Time For Joy - Reflections In Guitar
  • A Time For Peace - Ivory Sessions
  • Hymns In Colour
  • Praise
  • Prisms - Portraits In Synthesis
  • Rainmaker
  • Solo Piano
  • TechniColours
  • The Colours of Praise: Two
  • The Harvest - solo piano
  • The Wind and the Wheat
  • Timeless - Hymns In Colour
  • The Gift - A Colours Christmas
  • Palette - A Colours Sampler
  • Reflection - A Colours Sampler
  • Spectrum - The Colours Sampler

Of course, if you have others you’re looking to sell that aren’t on this list (which I will try to update as I obtain more), let me know if we can talk!

I am also looking for information about where I can purchase CD’s of Praise and Praise 2 by Harlan Ragers and Smitty Price. I checked the Maranatha site but no results when searched. Beautiful insrtumental music. I had a cassette of one of them somewhere but can not find it. If you get any leads, please let me know.

Thanks, JR

I noticed some of your titles that you have listed and was wondering if you are selling any of them or possibly could tell me where you purchased them. I am inquiring about: The Harvest, A Time for Peace, Spectrum, and A Time for Joy. Please email me if you have any information. Thank you, VJ.

VJ - I got all but two from sellers on eBay. The other two I bought new way back when they came out. Sorry, but no, I’m currently not selling any of these.

Hi guys…. ABout this Colours music, I have a few of them on LP and I am mixing them all down to mp3s. I am in broadcasting and I am looking for “You are my hiding place” by Harlan that was on the first Colours LP. I am working on a syndicated show and this is going to be the theme song. Does anyone have a copy of this I can buy or that you could donate? You can reach me at

Personally, I’m only looking for CDs and have no interest in digitized analog copies.

On a tangent, I hope you’re contacting Maranatha music on the matter you described. The music may be out of print, but it’s still copyrighted and you’re going to need to license it for a syndicated show.
