VALENTYNE SUITE (1969)
|Previous album||Discography listing||Next album|
The second Colosseum album was released in November 1969. It marked the starting point of new progressive label: Vertigo. Valentyne Suite was released in a batch of three albums, and the other two were Juicy Lucy (VO2) and Manfred Mann Chapter Three (VO3).
Since The Kettle and Valentyne Suite appeared on the first US album, a totally different album, The Grass Is Greener, was released in 1970.
Like the first album Valentyne Suite reached #15 on the UK album charts.
The version above (Bronze HELP 4) was released in 1972. Several other issues exist.
In 2004 both Valentyne Suite and The Grass Is Greener were issued as a double CD with three bonus tracks
