Colosseum - Valentyne Suite

In as much as any of their LPs are, this is the one for me. Their second album boasts an opener which wiki says Fatboy Slim used in no less than three songs, and it's my least fave ("The Kettle"). The next three songs are all pretty good "Elegy," "Butty's Blues," and "The Machine Demands a Sacrifice," but it's the second-side long "The Valentye Suite" which sells the record. This is where the band begin to go prog and Dave Greenslade's contributions are welcomed. Maybe not a classic, but enjoyable all the same.

Colosseum - The Grass is Greener

In America, we got this LP instead. They added four numbers, lost "The Kettle," added overdubs by their new guitarist to the existing tracks, and only kept the third part of the Valentyne Suite. Needless to say, the UK album is superior. Both albums are on the current two-disc CD remaster.


A great album - I love it!

Ginger Baker Trio

East Timor - Peter's usual 'talkie' contribution. It is very good jazz album

'There was a bloody war'

Wow. The quality of this is stunning. The musicianship, the vocals, the video - all faultless.

Great harmonies/good vocals

Great musicianship - delightful tubs, violin and guitar

I wasn't sure about the Peaky Blinders contribution.

I wasn't that impressed with the overall song - sorry it just seemed like something I'd heard many years before

Sorry Bob

Pretty good but not as good as the original until the excellent guitar solo at the end.
The house that Clete’s musician friend had told him about was a sun-faded pink art deco place stuck back in a cove where a desiccated shrimp boat lay on its side in a slough overgrown with vines and palm and persimmon trees.

Stunning quality for a live recording. I know I should love them. I’ve tried and tried but they just don’t do it for me.

Only just seen your request....

Hard to narrow it down, but I love this.

They were still at school (in Kent) when they initially wrote and performed this.



Fabulous! I played the “new” Sigur Ros collaborative orchestral live album from 18 years ago today hoping it would be good. It wasn’t really but this makes up for it.

It sounds interesting - I played parts.

I made myself a large punk and new wave playlist on YouTube Music and there’s some goodies on these three CDs to add.

Ignatius - Lights From The Deep

Very good debut album from Spain. Vocals in English, good but a bit strained at times. Symphonic - nothing ground-breaking but most enjoyable.
