Release Notes

Once more, the extraordinary musicians of COLOSSEUM succeeded to release an also extraordinary and first-class live-album. During the Summer tour of 2005 Miles Ashton, the great live sound engineer who runs his own studio in Watford, recorded all of Colosseum's concerts to 24-track digital. Guitarist Clem Clempson and Keyboarder Dave Greenslade spent long days at Clem's studio auditioning all the performances looking for that magical mix of performance and natural sound quality and put together a complete show to run over two CD's. So now, you can enjoy a real complete COLOSSEUM-Concert with the fanstastic voice of Chris Farlowe, the virtuosics Clem Clemspon, Dave Greenslade and Barbara Thompson plus the outstanding Bassplayer Mark Clarke and drumming legend Jon Hiseman.

The first set features the performances from The Theaterhaus in Stuttgart / Germany ( June 11th 2005 )together with the both tracks “Lights” and the Jack Bruce Classic “Rope Ladder To The Moon” from The Music Hall in Worpswede / Germany ( April 23rd 2005 ). The second set was recorded at The Treibhaus in Innsbruck / Austria ( June 11th 2005 ).

Although Barbara Thompson played alongside Dick Heckstall-Smith on the first three original albums this new release is the first featuring her with the band - and she has bought a whole new dimension with her - the boys are more than delighted, especially since now they are seeing more women in the audience!
