Cancelled set of four gummed stamps.

Individual stamps included in this set:

$2.00 Purple & yellow

Split Enz released True Colours in January, 1980. The album remained high in the charts in NZ, Australia, Canada and Holland for several months. Neil Finn’s song I Got You is the band’s most successful tune. 

$3.30 Yellow & blue

True Colours is the fifth album released by Split Enz. The band’s percussionist Noel Crombie designed the cover, choosing four different colour combinations.  

$4.00 Blue & orange

British engineer and producer David Tickle has contributed to albums by Blondie, Prince and U2, among others. But it was as a near-unknown 20-year-old that he produced his first album: True Colours by Split Enz. 

$6.90 Red & green

Before True Colours, Split Enz was a popular cult band, playing concerts around the world. After True Colours, many of its songs including Shark Attack, I Got You, I Hope I Never and Poor Boy would be mainstays of the band’s live performances and favourites on Kiwi and Australian radio.
