Limited to 1000 on Gold Vinyl
Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing housed in gatefold jacket. The pioneering English progressive jazz-rock band Colosseum recorded their fourth album 'Daughter of Time' in the midst of an upheaval in the band's line-up. War plays a central role on the concept album based on a man's fascination for all what war brings to the world. The different instruments combined creating a brilliant and versatile musical world. It's a is a very different album from it's predecessor 'Valentyne Suite'. Their new singer Chris Farlow brought a powerful voice to the immense quality of their classical and chamber jazz. String arrangements made up of violin, viola, and cello are mixed with rich organ and vibraphone sounds. It's another great example of their versatile progressive rock sound. Colosseum was one of the most influential British progressive rock bands, combining elements of jazz and blues in their rock efforts. In their early years they released a couple of influential albums, including 'Valentyne Suite' and 'Those Who Are About to Die Salute You'.
