COLOSSEUM To Release A Series Of Bootlegs From Classic Era

Despite their popularity, there hasn’t been a lot of concert recordings from COLOSSEUM‘s first lifespan. 1971’s "Live" being the only official on-stage release from the band. No wonder that the gap was filled with bootlegs which the fans pored over for years, despite the not-always-great sound quality. This is about to change now, with the issue of four formers bootlegs, from 1969 to 1971, capturing the Jon Hiseman-led ensemble in their element and exposing some trackspreviously unheard in such an environment – like their take on “With A Little Help From My Friends” or “Mandarin” from the group’s debut.

Available now on digital platforms, all four albums will be out on CD, with Clem Clempson involved in restoration, later on, together with another release of “Live ’71” – expanded again. As for the official bootlegs, they look like this:
