Colosseum’s only performance at the prestigious Montreux Rose D’Or festival presented in superior quality. Taken from the official master tapes, this is the first vinyl release to capture the original Colosseum line-up performing at Montreux in best quality sound.

Insert includes an informative liner note by Repertoire’s Chris Welch – a must for all Colosseum fans!
Captured on camera and in superior audio during their first year of existence, Colosseum made a great impression at Montreux in 1969. Their performance for the Rose d’Or TV festival that April spawned a return visit to the prestigious Jazz festival later that year. Remastered for vinyl from the official Swiss TV archives’ master tapes, experience the original line-up performing signature pieces ‘Mandarin’ and ‘The Valentyne Suite’ in top quality sound.
