1967/ 1976
3 stars Important sound document taken from a concert (the last one made​​)in 1977 in Modena and published in 1995 by DV More Record (restoring the original tapes?). What have I been able to understand is that Equipe 84 was a really explosive band, both as to POP, Beat or Progressive. Unfortunately, what we have in our hands is not the whole concert, only an excerpt. Since DV More record is not a Prog label ma but its purpose is the recovery of those artists and bands abandoned by their label at the level of reprints (also with new recordings) Prog music is not present (I think they also played the part of the repertoire). The 9 songs of this CD are all interesting, also for a Progster.

"Nel cuore nell'anima" is an interesting Lucio Batisti's evergreen, in this case played with no great magic but with a great feeling. Now we see that the recording is really good, considering that the tapes remained in mothballs for 20 years. Interesting is calso "Tutta mia la cittą", Italian version of Move's "Blackberry Way". Case recording and tapes we note too the keyboards and drums to a great Silvano Bolzoni, in some cases very exuberant. "4 Marzo 1943", a great song of Lucio Dalla is another pearl of this CD, in this case in an uncensored version. And the final Bono and Cher "Bang Bang", sung in Italian is another good song. "Mercante senza fiori" is a noticeable song also for the fact that between autors is present Gianni D'Errico.

So this is an important sound document and a good live CD also for Progsters.
