Colosseum Live is a live album by Colosseum, released in 1971. It was one of the band's most commercially successful albums, remaining in the UK Albums Chart for six weeks and peaking at number 17.
This album was recorded at Manchester University (March 18, 1971) and the Big Apple, Brighton (March 27, 1971), on the "Daughter of Time" tour. After "Colosseum Live", the band broke up for 23 years and reunited in 1994.
Allmusic wrote that "With good material, some towering performances, and a powerful atmosphere, this is everything you could hope for from a live album." They made note of the performances of all the players except Dave Greenslade, and commented that the band arrangements, duets during the fills, and the way solos flow from one to the other are all interesting and effective.
