Colosseum was one of the pivotal progressive bands that emerged in the second part of the Sixties. In ’68 the founding members were drummer Jon Hiseman, tenor sax-player Dick Heckstall-Smith and bass player Tony Reeves, later joined by Dave Greenslade (keyboards), Dave Clempson (guitar) and Chris Farlowe (vocals). Their music is a progressive mix of several styles (rock, jazz, blues) with lots of sensational solos and captivating interplay.  “Jumping off the Sun”  originally recorded late in 1969, with Chris Farlowe’s vocals overdubbed over Dave Clempson’s originals.

This album brings together the best of their radio broadcasts. Comprising both studio and live recordings that have been newly mastered. This album captures the band at the height of its powers with each member providing virtuoso performances throughout.
