Colosseum - Valentyne Suite 180g Import Vinyl LP
Colosseum Valentyne Suite 180g Import Vinyl LP
1969's Valentyne Suite is the second full-length studio effort from English progressive jazz rockers Colosseum and follow-up to Those Who Are About to Die Salute You issued earlier the same year. Produced by Gerry Bron and bassist Tony Reeves, there's a blues tinge to the material here going back to some of the band members early days playing in blues outfits but the group also implements elements of prog-rock and proto-industrial music to great effect as well, all anchored by the steady hand of bandleader/drummer Jon Hiseman.
The initial blueprint for the band was to fuse jazz and rock while allowing individual talent to flourish within a band framework and it comes to full fruition here.
