Those Who Are About To Die Salute You: Gold Colour Vinyl LP


Release date: 5 May, 2023

Those Who Are About To Die Salute You is the debut album by progressive jazz rockers Colosseum, released in 1969. The title is a translation of the Latin phrase "morituri te salutant", that according to popular belief gladiators addressed to the emperor before the beginning of a gladiatorial match. Those Who Are About to Die Salute You is coated with the volatile saxophone playing of Dick Heckstall-Smith, the thunderous keyboard assault of Dave Greenslade, and the bewildering guitar craft of James Litherland. Together, Colosseum skitters and glides through brisk musical spectrums of freestyle jazz and British blues. The album reached #15 on the UK Albums Chart.

Those Who Are About To Die Salute You is available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on gold coloured vinyl, and includes an insert.
