by Barbara, Clem Clempson (guitar), Dave Greenslade (keyboards), Mark Clarke (bass), Chris Farlowe (vocals) and bandleader Jon Hiseman (drums).

Alongside newer tracks like 'Hard Times Rising' and 'No Pleasin', the ensemble revisit their prog roots with a captivating rendition of 'The Valentyne Suite' and an epic 'Lost Angeles'.

'In The Heat Of The Night' sees Farlowe's mastery of the blues on full display as Colosseum reinterpret the Ray Charles original, with Clem's licks and Barbara's sultry sax underpinning the closing number.
