The Dreams That Tell Of Sweet Bitter Places.
on 27 September 2007
This was the first "rock album" I ever bought in early 1971. I obviously still have the vinyl copy...actually I've just dug it out to look at it whilst writing this...the CD enables a casual listen in the car, at work or loaded on to the absurdly tiny 20gb music thingy my son gave me.
Each track is an exercise in individual musicial work of the highest order by a band which had yet to peak as it introduced Dave Clempson and Chris Farlowe to an eager fan base.
Sadly only 'Colosseum Live' was to come for an overly long period of time...what this band might have achieved, had they avoided piques, is anyone's guess.
To see them now is to realise that the peak was achieved. Don't believe me...watch the 1994 Reunion DVD, see them live and get the bug.
