Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.
Second album from this groundbreaking quintet that had offered us much of a thrill with their debut. Again here, if you are looking for the vinyl, please be aware that this album came out with a very close-looking version in America, but a completely different track list and is titled, The Grass Is Greener 5BTW, I distinctly remember a first version of Lost Angeles on this version of the album).

There has been understandable confusion for decades about the overlap and the differences between Colosseum's second U.K. album and their second U.S. album. Their second U.K. LP was titled Valentyne Suite; their second U.S. album, however, was not only given a different title, The Grass Is Greener, but featured a substantially different track listing, with only four of the eight tracks overlapping with Valentyne Suite (although the version of "The Grass Is Greener" on the U.S. release has a guitar overdub by Clem Clemson, the original part by James Litherland getting lost in the process).

There can be little doubt about the musical competence of these gentlemen. All these years later, the music still sounds fresh. Technically this is top-notch. Blues, jazz and rock are blended into a heady mixture and the playing sounds extremely confident.

Colosseum's second album, also in 1969, was Valentyne Suite, notable as the first release from Vertigo Records, the first label to sign heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath. Vertigo Records was a branch of Philips, established to sign and develop artists that did not fit the main Philips Records brand.
Mark Clarke then replaced Tony Reeves on bass, and Hiseman recruited vocalist Chris Farlowe to enable Clempson to concentrate on guitar. This is considered to be the definitive Colosseum line-up, which recorded the 1970 album Daughter of Time.

The Grass Is Greener is an album by Colosseum, released in January 1970. In contrast to other albums by Colosseum, The Grass Is Greener was released only in the United States, on the Dunhill label, distributed by ABC. It was conceived as a U.S. alternative to November 1969's Valentyne Suite, complete with a muted, blue-green variation of the aforementioned album's cover. It features four tracks recorded with then-new guitarist/vocalist Dave "Clem" Clempson in the winter of 1969 ("Jumping Off The Sun," "Lost Angeles," "Rope Ladder To The Moon," "Bolero"); three tracks from the 1969 Vertigo LP Valentyne Suite but with vocal and guitar parts provided by Clempson…

As a genre was coming to life from 1969 to 1971, the group COLOSSEUM created some of the most innovative and diverse jazz-rock music there was. Everyone was taking the next logical step after Miles Davis conducted Jazz-Fusion 101 with Bitches Brew…

Though Colosseum lasted only a little more than three years, producing five albums, they made a great impression on the blooming sub-genre of progressive rock. They broke onto the scene with the energetic jazz & blues-influenced Those Who Are About To Die Salute You, with its unusual chord progressions and variant song structures, and then followed up with the epic Valentyne Suite. The title track of Valentyne Suite, a 17-minute composition, pushed keyboardist Dave Greenslade into the spotlight of progressive music. Drummer Jon Hiseman, on the other hand, gradually moved towards the jazz-fusion area.

Eleven years since ‘Tomorrow’s Blues’ and an incredible 45 since ‘Valentyne’s Suite’, Colosseum are still creating music and still creating something that only happens when this collection of grizzled old musicians get together and, mostly, there is still magic there…

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
It's easy to say this is the U.S. version of the European released "Valentyne Suite", but it's much more complicated than that. We have some different musicians on this one, and half the songs on here weren't on the original. And the four original tracks have been changed somewhat as well. They kept the same album cover but changed the hue. As Sean Trane says in his review "Did you say confusing ?" I really didn't think this would be nearly as good as the original since the 17 minute title track "Valentyne Suite" was missing from this one (although "The Grass Is Greener" section is included), but I was wrong. The four new tracks are simply outstanding ! And while I wouldn't say they're as good as the "Valentyne Suite", they're good enough (along with the other tracks) to give this 4 stars. I'll review the four new songs that I didn't already review on the "Valentyne Suite" album.
