Description

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered & expanded edition of the classic debut album by Colosseum Those Who Are About to Die Salute You. Colosseum came together in 1968, the brainchild of virtuoso drummer Jon Hiseman and saxophonist Dick Heckstall-Smith (who had played together in the Graham Bond Organisation & John Mayalls Bluesbreakers). Teaming with bass guitarist Tony Reeves and keyboard player Dave Greenslade, the line-up of the band was completed with the recruitment of guitarist and vocalist James Litherland. Recorded in the winter of 1968, Those Who Are About to Die Salute You was a stunning debut album and was one of the first successful attempts to fuse jazz, blues and rock. Featuring such classic tracks as Walking in the Park, Beware the Ides of March, Those About to Die and The Road She Walked Before, Those Who Are About to Die Salute You reached number 15 on the UK album chart and remains a seminal album in the development of what would be known as Progressive Rock. This Esoteric Recordings release is newly remastered and includes three bonus tracks recorded at Pye studios in London in November 1968. The release fully restores the original album artwork and features an illustrated booklet with new essay.
