Flying Colours is singer Chris de Burgh's ninth studio album, released by A&M Records in 1988. It went straight to number one in the UK on 15 October 1988 and is the only de Burgh album to go to number one on the UK album chart. The single "Missing You" taken from the album peaked at No. 3 on the UK Singles Chart, and No. 1 in Ireland in Dec 1988. All tracks composed by Chris de Burgh.
Into the Light contains Chris de Burgh's highest-charting single with the ballroom elegance of "Lady in Red," peaking at number three in 1987 and remaining on the Billboard charts for 14 weeks. This song, with its sweeping romantic tempo and classy feel, is reminiscent of Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight" as de Burgh's sincere flattery for his lover is exquisitely sung. Even his voice seems more pronounced, as it resonates and then lowers into a softer tone
Much like Into the Light but without the massiveness of "Lady in Red," the songs come off as more developed and mature sounding, especially in their combination of tempos and lyrics. The adventurous "Sailing Away," complete with gusty chorus and careless melody, makes for the album's greatest asset. Its airborne feel is much like that of "Say Goodbye to It All" or "High on Emotion," only with a lighter touch.
De Burgh's first album to reach number one in the UK Albums Chart was 1988's Flying Colours, his second top 10 album chart placing after 1986's Into the Light. Chris de Burgh was signed to A&M Records for many years (1974–2004), but he now has his own label, Ferryman Productions. His recent albums are released by German label, Edel Records.
