Haircut One Hundred – Blue Hat for a Blue Day (1982, unreleased)

Life is short…so why not indulge in an unreleased Haircut One Hundred album?  Yep, that’s exactly what Blue Hat for a Blue Day, the aborted would-be follow-up to the stone cold classiq, Pelican West.  Truth be told, there was an official follow-up to Pelican that saw the light of day in ’83 titled Paint and Paint, BUT original and sacred mouthpiece Nick Hayward had no involvement on it.  Nick was present at the mic for Blue Hat…, albeit only on the tunes containing vocals, leading me to believe these were actually demos.  There’s less of an emphasis on brass and horns here than on the debut, and Haircut’s overall pop acumen is more developed.  Had Blue Hat been fully realized something tells me that Haircut wouldn’t have been the one-hit wonder footnote they sadly seem relegated to.  BTW, I don’t have the sequence of the tracks, so alphabetical it is.
