4 stars Recently I acquired, after a long search , original Mogul Thrash LP and I must admit that I was very eager to hear James Litherland accompanied with some talented musicians and supported by such a name as Brian Auger, who not only played piano on one track but even produced this album. I must say that my expectations were fulfiled. Interesting album, sounding very much as Colosseum, with no weak point but also none to be specially highlighted - except the variation of ''Elegy'' (originally from Colosseum's ''Valentyne Suite'' album) with Litherland's strong guitar improvisation. Really it's a pitty that such a talented musician as James Litherland was ( is ) not more present on the rock scene. During the Colosseum era he was , alongside Dave Greenslade , the author of the most interesting material on their best albums (''Those who are about to die salute you'' and ''Valentyne Suite''). His unjust dismissal from Colosseum, based on faulty estimate of band leaders, brought to a decline of Colosseum on one side and to only this one Litherland's album on the other. However, this Mogul Thrash album is excellent addition to any prog music collection.
