αποσπασματα απο wikipedia:
“Colosseum is a British jazz-rock band considered also a part of the early roots of progressive rock.”
“Colosseum’s second album, their second release in 1969, was Valentyne Suite, and is arguably the band’s best. It is well-known as the first album release from the label Vertigo Records, which also first signed hard rockers Black Sabbath.”

Kingston Wall - Tri-logy
απο τις αγαπημενες μου και ισως πιο αγνωστες και αδικοχαμενες prog μπαντες ever…
“Kingston Wall was a psychedelic/progressive rock group from Helsinki, Finland. They were formed in 1987. Influenced by such artists as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, the group combined eastern themes, mysticism and vivid psychedelia with their unique, hard-edged acid-rock.”
"The third and last album from Kingston Wall, III - Tri-Logy, was released in autumn 1994. It was a very different album compared to the two previous ones as it included more harder rock than the two previous ones, at times combined even into dub reggae with some techno music and synthesizers arranged by Kimmo Kajasto (from Koneveljet and Rinneradio). Most of the lyrics in Tri-Logy have almost religious philosophical/mythological tone in them, and they are partially based on the Bock Saga, an eccentric explanation about the origins of the alphabets, words and the whole human history.
This story of Bock Saga was told by Ior Bock, a man Petri Walli knew well and most likely got to know him during his trips to Goa, India, where Bock used to stay at wintertime and tell his tales. When Tri-Logy was released, Petri Walli said in an interview that it was probably the most expensive self-financed album made ever made in Finland. Tri-Logy was also considered by many as an almost megalomanic rock-epic in reminiscent of Pink Floyd’s The Wall album. The last song on the album, “The Real Thing”, runs for 18 minutes and again features Sakari Kukko on saxophone along with ambient synthesizer pads played by Kimmo Kajasto."
ειδικα το τελευταιο τραγουδι που το αναφερει ειναι τουλαχιστον υμνος. ψαξτε, δε ξερω τι θα κανετε αλλα βρειτε τους.
“Although Kingston Wall never played outside Finland apart from one gig in Tallinn, Estonia during their early days, the group is considered even by many Finns as one of the country’s best hard rock groups. Their albums have appeared on the Finnish Top 40 album charts. The tremendous cult following status of Kingston Wall has also gained them a steadily growing fan base around the world, mostly thanks to the Internet and MP3’s.”
