Arrigo Barnabé - Clara Crocodilo (late live version)

*please read my extended review for the original album if interested in more information

Exactly after 20 years, Clara Crocodilo was ressurected for a live presentation! This CD is somehow easier and cheap to get, since the original album is out of print and its copies (any format) could be found around 350-400 bucks. The composition is the same, but the line-up and arrangement got very different. There's no way to compare the albums. Each one has its own charm. Of course I prefer the original one, but I already heard it too much, so this live different piece sounds more interesting and enigmatic. A highlight point for me was the structure and distribution of the work. As you can see, the B-Side of the original album was listed as a suite divided by parts, and the even the Clara Crocodilo titled song was split in tracks. The tracklist is re-named but the songs are the same. The different vocal casting added a catchy and intriguing aspect for those who knows the late 70s release. Here is an alternative way to a classic masterpiece. But remains as excelent as before. How could I rate it lower?
