Colosseum – Valentyne Suite – 1969

Colosseum Valentyne Suite Cover Art

The second Colosseum album from 1969. In the wake of James Blake winning the Mercury Music and James Litherland, the singer guitarist on this album  being his father, I decided to listen to it. I have had this record since the seventies in the archive. Jazzy, rocky, bluesy, proggy and with great cover art. This record was the very first release on the vertigo label.

You can hear it here in its entirety but find yourself a vinyl copy if only to marvel at the cover art.


A request in the comments as to what is inside the gatefold.
