WHAT's NEW

What's new on this web page?

If you see the date changing on this page, without an announcement in this section, it is probably something like fixing minor coding problems, spelling errors, minor layout changes, new page on this site (so I changed bottom index), ... Any major changes to this page, will be announced here.

September 22, 2010. I just noticed that Colosseum released Morituri Te Salutant 1968-2003, a 4 CD box set. This set includes previously unreleased studio and live recordings.

January 18, 2008. I picked up my copy of Theme For A Reunion, which, according to the liner notes of the CD, is the complete concert from October 28, 1994, E-Werk, Cologne, Germany.

March 11, 2007. I picked up my copy of the re-issued Daughter Of Time. It has one bonus track, an newer version of Jumping off the Sun with Chris Farlowe on vocals (the original version had James Litherland on vocals) recorded in 1971.

October 21, 2005. I picked up my copies of the re-issued Those Who Are About To Die Salute You (single CD with bonus tracks), Valentyne Suite and The Grass Is Greener (double CD with bonus tracks).

July 18, 2005. I just noticed that the ezBoard message board that I had set up for this web site had been deleted. Since restoration of the deleted conference is only available to subscribers to their service, and since the activity was relatively light, I not planning on looking for another message board. If you do think a message board is worth while, or you have a message board that you like, let me know and I may promote it here. As always you can contact me here.

December 17, 2004 Dick Heckstall-Smith dies.

October 23, 2004. I just noticed that some of the CDs are being re-issued with bonus tracks, BBC recordings, studio recordings, ...

March 10, 2001. It looks like I may have been premature in moving to a new web hosting site. I just found out that whenever Tripod.com is having hardware or software problems with their servers, they put up a message for the webmaster that their site is in violation of terms, and the web site has been deleted (instead of a message about system problems and try again later). Anyway, I believed Tripod.com when they said they deleted my account, so I will be moving, and making chromeoxide.com my new home on the web.

March 10, 2001. As long as I am moving my entire site, I decided to make a few changes to the layout of the individual pages, and the web site in general, including (but not limited to) I removed the counter, and moved the listings of mirror sites to the bottom of the page, ...

March 6, 2001. Sometime between March 1 to March 5, 2001 Tripod deleted my account/web site. The last stats Tripod gave me were 9,000+ visitors per month. Since my site is so popular, I have decided to keep it going, in spite of this major setback. But rather than trying to build up another free web site, and possibly deal with this problem again, I decided go with CommandLine.net to host the new chromeoxide.com.

February 22, 2001. A visitor to this web site passed on a copy of the Colosseum Live 1969 to me, and so I just forwarded it on to Tony Reeves. Thanks from Tony and myself.

October 31, 2000. The new Chrome Oxide Music Collectors Pages Message Board is provided by EZBoard.

September 26, 2000. After seeing my September 13 announcement that Tony Reeves visited my web site, Jorgen Angel, photographer stopped by my site and inquired about Tony. It seems Jorgen had photos from a party both had attended 25+ years ago. I am very happy that because of my web site, I have been able to connect a couple of friends who hadn't seen each other in a very long time.

September 13, 2000. Tony Reeves (bass player) is looking for the 1969 live recording of the Valentyne Suite, on Microphone Records. I have only seen this recording listed in Hot Wacks, so any help would be appreciated. Tony Reeves was also a member of Greenslade (who have reformed), and recorded a CD to be released the second week of October 2000, and there will be a few live gigs in the UK in November 2000 in support of the CD.

October 31, 1999. There used to be a complete listing of all the bands featured on this site at the bottom of each page on this site. The complete band list has now been moved to the Site Map.

Back in June 1997 when I started this site, the index at the bottom of the page seemed like a good idea. Due to the amazing growth of this site, I now think that the Site Map is a better way to do it.

I will continue to list the featured band of the month at the bottom of each page on this site.

December 3, 2002 CD Now is undergoing changes, and asked that ALL links be removed.
October 28, 1999 I signed up with CD Now.

October 22, 1999. The Chrome Oxide Music Collector Pages web site hit the big time! And I didn't even know it.

Tripod stats showed that this web site had more than 4,000 unique visitors last month (September 1999). Because of that, Tripod has increased my web space from 11mb to 50mb.

May 21, 1999. On the advice of legal counsel, we have now added a copyright notice, and legal disclaimer to the bottom of each page on this web site.

March 31, 1999. I started a new section on this page, Classifieds. Now, if someone is interesed in putting an ad here, or I find something I think is worthwhile, there is a place for it.

March 25, 1999. I started working on this page.

COLOSSEUM
INTRO
[Top (page index)] [Up] [Down] [Bottom (site index)]

Colosseum, was a jazz/rock band from england in the late 1960s. Jon Hiseman, Tony Reeves and Dick Heckstall-Smith had recently departed (August 1968) from John Mayall's Bluesbreakers attempt at jazz/blues fusion, and decided that they wanted to continue in this musical direction, and take it a step forward. With Dick Heckstall-Smith (sax) Dave Greenslade (organ) and various guitarists (Jim Roche, James Litherland, Clem Clemson), Colosseum was a band that could handle both jazz and rock equally well.

The initial version of Colosseum lastest from 1968 to 1971. A different version of the band got together a few years later. But since I never did get into that version of the band, they are being left off this page.

I have listed all the albums that I am aware of that were original records of the band (but not any compilations), but only listed 45s where it didn't look like the tracks had been released in any other format.

Comments and corrections would be appreciated.

And of course, any audio-video-print additions to my collection would be appreciated.

I am also interested in getting wider exposure for this site. So links from your site to mine would be appreciated. And if you know of any sites that allow/encourage submission, I would also appreciate knowing about them as well.

Do you have any articles, books, albums, tapes, CDs, ... on this band that you would like reviewed and / or integrated into this page?

Do you have any other band that you would like to see a page for on this site?

4 Million Hard to Find CDs & LPs at MusicStack
December 10, 2002.
Back in October 1999 I put up links to CD-Now so that visitors could easily link to the related band pages and instantly see which items were still in print/available for purchase. CD-Now no longer has that option. For the moment I am putting in Amazon.com search boxes. Amazon.com doesn't easily allow for links to individual band pages in the same way that CD-Now used to. So, instead of me being able to create direct links, I have put up the Amazon.com search box instead. So you can still go to a page with the various bands products, buy you now need to go through a search box.

As always, let me know what you think.

Tony Reeves (bass player for the original Colosseum) is looking for any/all rare live recordings of the band. Please contact Chrome Oxide if you can help. All the rare live recordings listed on this page, were seen in the Hot Wacks (or other) book(s), but I have never seen them in anyone elses collection or trade list. Thanks.

December 3, 2002 CD Now is undergoing changes, and asked that ALL links be removed.
