Time on Our Side

The more time that passed from the day in November 1971 that Jazz-rock pioneers Colosseum split up, the less likely it seemed that they would ever work together again. However, more than 40 years down the line, Jon Hiseman, Chris Farlowe, Clem Clempson, Dave Greenslade and Mark Clarke were still going strong. Tragically, Saxophonist Dick Heckstall-Smith succumbed to an 18 month long battle with ill heath and died at the end of 2004. Jon’s long time wife and internationally-renowned saxophonist Barbara Thompson stepped into his shoes through his long ordeal and became a permanent member until her retirement from public performance in 2015. Since the death of legendary drummer Jon Hiseman in 2018, Colosseum has reformed to play gigs and festivals throughout Europe. The band’s break-up in 1971 meant their final release had been a live album which was rated as one of their finest offerings – and it is perhaps fitting that they should have kicked off the return of Colosseum with another live effort The Reunion Concerts 1994. In the summers of 1997 and 2003 the six of them re-convened and recorded two new studio albums, “Bread & Circuses” & “Tomorrows Blues.” Then came another great live album, Live 05, and their latest offering “Time on our Side” released in 2012. These albums are now available for digital download, some for the first time.
