Valentyne Suite was the second album released by the band Colosseum. It was Vertigo Records' first album release, and reached number 15 in the UK Albums Chart in 1969.

Album · 1969 · 7 Songs. Chapter 3: Parasomnia.

Valentyne Suite" is Colosseum's second album, which in some ways shows an improvement on their impressive debut. The artistic relevance of this piece for the germination of prog rock can easily be accurately regarded as equal to that of the Nice's 'Ars Longa, Vita Brevis', Pink Floyd's 'Interstellar Overdrive', and King Crimson's '21st Century Schizoid Man'. However, as much as the suite is the absolute highlight to this album, we must not overlook the remaining repertoire.

Greenslade proves to be a largely unsung hero, his only real solo in the suite something to offer a challenge to vintage Keith Emerson, but with swing. As to criticism, bassist Tony Reeves has very little flow to his playing, which severely hampers a rhythm section that needs to be loose-limbed, and Litherland 's guitar playing is formulaic, which can be fine for rock, but once outside the most straightforward parameters, he seems lost.

Valentyne Suite was the second album released by the band Colosseum.

Colosseum, Valentyne Suite. by Colosseum - 15 Tracks - 1:35:58. Release date 11/01/1969.

Valentyne Suite takes the band out of their bluesy comfort zone into something closer to prog rock. The album is generally seen as their best album and still extremely enjoyable. 180 gram audiophile vinyl. Colosseum was one of England's prime rock-jazz outfits. Most of the members of Colosseum had apprenticed in blues bands and it shows very strongly on some of the material on their second album. Valentyne Suitetakes the band out of their bluesy comfort zone into something closer to prog rock.
