Those Who Are About To Die Salute You

LP (Item 83559) ABC/Dunhill, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

A jazz rock masterpiece from Colosseum – the kind of record that the British scene could do far far better than any American group at the time! The set is a sweet blend of late beat group grooving – using the heavy R&B-influenced guitar and organ styles of earlier years, and working them into a more open-ended, more improvisational approach that had a surprising amount of soul! Most cuts have vocals, but the instrumentation is what really dominates the set – especially on the sweet organ work from Dave Greenslade, and the always-great sax work by Dick Heckstall-Smith. Titles include the funky "Debut", and the cuts "Walking In The Park", "Plenty Hard Lick", "The Road She Walked Before", "Mandarin" and "Those About To Die".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label ABC/Dunhill pressing.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Dunhill, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
The second album by Three Dog Night – issued hot on the heels of the first, and with a similar heavy-rock trippy-pop kind of approach!

Birtha
ABC, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
Funky rock from this all-girl group – done with lots of heavy guitars, and a really full-on and righteous style that's pretty darn soulful!
