4 stars Among all prog live albums I had in my hands, this one is certainly one of the finest. For all who don't know Curved Air yet, let's say this was one of the most innovative prog bands from the 70's. Often compared to Renaissance because of a female singer and strong classical influences, Curved Air was craziest in the arrangements and approach. More psychedelic influenced too. Comparisons to Syd Barrett's and Gilmour's Floyd for instance can be made. The band released several unequal records before that public album (1975) and their career turned to mere melodic rock afterwards. Thus this CD is a good collection of Curved Air's best moments. A good visiting card. This reissue was remastered but no bonus tracks were added. You'll find a gorgeous selection of the main tracks by this seminal band (Eddie Jobson, Stewart Copeland, played in Curved Air): 'Propositions', 'It Happened Today', the curious 'Marie-Antoinette' (on a French point of view), 'Vivaldi' with a crazy/iconoclast reprise of the Italian maestro's most popular themes? More than a nostalgic snapshot from the past (the band is back for a gig in UK and a new album), this CD is a milestone of British prog rock history.
