"I went to Rocket Records, and I did three albums for them, which were critically quite well received, but there were no hits on there, which is a shame because Rocket Records was a great idea," said singer Colin Blunstone in January 1998.

 

Former The Zombies band member and now a soloist, Blunstone once performed cover version of the Elton song Planes. Speaking on a U.S. radio broadcast on January 28, 1998, Bluntstone added: "They just gave you all the finance you needed. When I was with Rocket Records, I had unlimited budget and great players and I could go anywhere to record. And I had no chart success.

 

Blunstone said he's currently working on a solo album on the small Mystic Records label.
