Colours is a compilation album from Scottish singer-songwriter Donovan. It was released in the United Kingdom (PRT Records PYL 7004 [LP]/PYC 7004 [CD]) in October 1987 and did not chart. This 1987 release bears little resemblance to the 1972 version of Colours.


In 1987, PRT Records assembled and released a thirty track compilation of Donovan's 1965 Pye Records recordings. The album was released on both vinyl and compact disc and marks the first compact disc release of many of the songs.
