The Way of the Gladiator by Daniel P. MannixHail Caesar, we who are about to dic salute you! And die the gladiators did. In a vast marble Colosseum larger than the Yankee Stadium, the people of Rome, patrician and commoner, flocked to see gladiators mangled beneath the hoofs and wheels of horses and chariots, slaughtered by half-starved wild beasts and butchered by well-armed and armoured professionals. With the Empire in decline, death and torture became the only spectacles that satisfied the decadent Romans longing. The Emperor Trajan gave one set of games that lasted 122 days; at its end, 11 000 people and 10 000 animals had been killed. The people of Rome loved it- and they wanted more. This is the extraordinary and true account of the Roman Games and the gladiators who fought and died in the cruelest, costliest spectacles of all time!

Origins of the phrase: "Those who are about to die salute you."
It is one of the pioneering albums of jazz fusion. The original vinyl album had the title "Colosseum" on the record label and on the spine of the cover, but the album is better known as "Those Who Are About To Die Salute You". The album reached number 15 in the UK Albums Chart. Tony Reeves compiled the sketches into the main theme and arranged the song. Colosseum also recorded "I Can't Live Without You", which appears on the re-release as a bonus track. They concluded "the album never strays from its intensity or its creativity", and added that Valentyne Suite is similar and just as outstanding, even though Allmusic's official review of that album is largely negative. In the United States, the album was released in July on the Dunhill label with a different tracklist and a different cover.
