Rose Colored Glasses is the debut album by country music artist John Conlee. It was released on ABC Records, and was his only disc for the label; he would move to MCA Records the next year.
The album was a commercial success, peaking just outside the country top 10 (at number 11), and would be his highest charting album until 1983.
It featured 3 singles; the Conlee-written title track reached number 5 in America. The next single, "Lady Lay Down" became a number one in the States, while going to number 2 in Canada. The last single to be released from the record, the Conlee-written "Backside of Thirty" (in 1979) was also an American number 1, while reaching number 5 in Canada. Among these singles, "Backside of Thirty" had originally been released in 1977, but it did not chart at the time.
Kurt Wolff and Orla Duane, in their book Country Music: The Rough Guide, described the album's cuts as "among Conlee's finest, including the title track and especially 'Backside of Thirty'
