First fully authorised release comprising Colosseum recorded live at the BBC 1969-1971. 180g vinyl cut at Abbey Road. Painstakingly researched by Colin Harper, Nigel Lees and Ashley Wood. Restored and remastered by Eroc for optimum sound quality throughout. In-depth liner notes by Chris Welch with a foreword by Pete Brown. Includes full-colour insert with photographs, and contributions from former band members. "This is the BBC Radio 1 Service. We proudly present one of the world's greatest bands... Colosseum!" Fans tuning into their wireless sets during the great age of progressive rock would have been thrilled to hear the announcer introduce one of their favourite bands about to hit the airwaves. They wouldn't be disappointed. Few bands played with such power, fire and intensity whether in a club, at a festival or even in the confines of a radio station studio. Led by drumming legend Jon Hiseman, Colosseum was guaranteed to give an exciting performance as soon as the red recording light went on and the engineer gave the thumbs up. Even so, it seemed like a fleeting moment, once the broadcasts were over, never to be heard again. But here is the exciting news. Many of the shows when Colosseum roared into epic arrangements like 'Walking In The Park,' 'Daughter Of Time', 'Tanglewood '63' and 'Rope Ladder To The Moon' were captured on tape for posterity, not only by the BBC but by listeners armed with their own home recorders. So now it is Repertoire's turn to proudly announce the release of Transmissions Live At The BBC featuring shows like John Peel's Sunday Concert and Sounds of the 70s, and comprising tracks recorded between 1969 and 1971. We hear the earliest version of Colosseum with founder members Jon Hiseman, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Dave Greenslade and Tony Reeves joined by guitarist/vocalist James Litherland. Later classic line-ups include Dave Clempson on guitar with Chris Farlowe (vocals) and Mark Clarke (bass) with guest appearances by Barbara Thompson and the New Jazz Orchestra. This vast treasure trove of material has been rescued from the BBC and Colosseum archives, along with rare recordings by fans and enthusiasts. It has been painstaking collected, collated, restored and digitalised by the combined forces of historian and archivist Colin Harper, Jon's daughter Ana Gracey and Repertoire's own audio genius the mighty Eroc. With liner notes by Repertoire's Chris Welch including new interviews with Dave Greenslade, Tony Reeves and Chris Farlowe, this promises to be the biggest classic rock album release of the year. So the 'The Machine Demands A Sacrifice', here it is!
