This 2002 Remastered CD edition of the 1975 studio album on Harvest Records comes with the Original Artwork and 2 Bonus Tracks!

‘Spartacus’ with it’s iconic rat in a light-bulb cover art image is probably the most popular of all the TRIUMVIRAT albums because the trio line-up gave it a very ELP-like feel in stature, carrying a lot of real punch and masses of melody in the end production!

Like it’s predecessor: ‘Illusions On A Double Dimple’, ‘Spartacus’ also gained a UK release on the Harvest label, but to this point the elusive USA market was an issue for the band, until they had the idea to launch this historical conceptual LP about the gladiator who challenged Rome in 73 B.C.
Capitol Records in the USA to real notice of ‘Spartacus’, and decided that was what they were looking for due to the blend of elaborate, powerful Progressive Rock arrangements and beautiful ballads!

Musician Line-up:
Jürgen Fritz (electric & grand pianos / Hammond organ / Moog & ARP String synths / production), Helmut Köllen (bass / acoustic & electric guitars / vocals) and Hans Bathelt (drums / percussion).
