Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
3 stars difficult music with strong jazz leanings from an anti-fascist left-wing group that would make the equivalent to polit-rock in Germany in the late sixties( group like Amom Duul, Kluster etc....). Their first album disclaims that work makes you free , and on the third album they spend some time as being anti-nuclear. On this one they make a version of L' Internazionale (the well known Socialist anthem) and Cometa Rossa seems to be a wink at the red star. In any case . this is a live album with good sound , the music is rather difficult but seems to enbody wide variety of influences but primarily re-worked on a jazz feeling.

4 stars Beautiful if occasionally strange and silly performance from one of Italy's very best symphonic jazz-rock ensembles tearing off a taut and upbeat set at the Festa Proletaria in Milan, 1975. The five-piece find just the right blend of hot jazz lines, Baroque refrains and playful juxtaposition of musical themes. Not quite in the same technical league as, say, D.F.A., but for their time Area were exemplary of the better and more interesting groups in the endless tracts of fusion outfits. They also stretched out into folk, experimental mood-setting, and seem here to want to be a part of the audience as much as play for them.

The moaning of Demetrio Stratos will scare some off immediately but they'll miss the jumping start of 'Luglio,Agosto,Settembre', a festive number sounding much like ethnic dance music. But in place of flutes and balalaikas are the killer guitars of Paolo Tofani and synths of Patrizio Fariselli as they warm things up. 11-minute 'La mela di Odessa' gets kooky, switches to a competent drum solo by Guilio Capiozzo followed by a sweet synth/organ/guitar interplay with odd rhythms and tense jazz energy as these guys show what good all round players they truly are. Zappa nuttiness ensues as someone eats an apple for nearly a minute and we get a chance to stretch our legs, walk around, watch people dance, drink a beer and have a thoroughly good time. 'Taps' is jokingly thrown into the mix and Stratos' slightly grating rant before 'Cometa Rossa', a rippin' fusion bit rich with synth and drum fireworks. The deep jam of the title track sweeps us up or allows us to keep wandering, our choice. Either way, it is terrific jazz rock with a feel only attained at a live, open-air event as this. A swirling chimera of electric organ, more weird voices, and Tavolazzi's loyal upright bass takes the lead for awhile. 'L'Internazionale' closes things on a troubled contrast in flavors and socio-political statement.

If Colosseum ll and Von Zamla had a child out of wedlock, it might sound something like this. A fine starter for the rest of the Area catalog.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars What I love about this live recording besides the music are the black and white pictures in the liner notes. I can just imagine being there back in the seventies in Italy watching this very entertaining band. There's one picture in particular of a young (teen?) girl being held up, above people's shoulders by several guys. She has this huge triumphant smile on her face with her arm up in the air, while the people around her are all laughing and smiling at this sight. There are five tracks, one each from the previous three albums prior to these concerts and two that aren't on any of their studio records.

"Luglio, Agosto, Settembre (Nero)" is from the "Arbeit Mach Frei" album. It becomes uptempo before a minute. Organ 1 1/2 minutes. It turns chaotic a minute later until it settles right down before 3 1/2 minutes with some reserved vocal melodies, organ and light drums. Here we go again a minute later. "La Mela Di Odessa" is from "Crac!" and is over 11 minutes in length. It's experimental to start with lots of dissonance. Drums come in and take over. Organ,guitar and bass all join in. Great sound ! Applause after 4 minutes as they stop. Then we hear one of the band members eating an apple into the mic while the crowd noise can be heard in the background. He's done in a minute then the music returns with spoken words which are at times theatrical while the band plays on. "Cometa Rossa" is from "Caution Radiation Area". It becomes uptempo. Organ comes in before 1 1/2 minutes as it settles right down. Vocals follow. Guitar and keys join in. It really kicks in at 5 minutes.

"Are(A)zione" is an original track and my favourite coming in at 14 1/2 minutes in length. Love the intro as different sounds come and go. The drumming is fantastic before 3 minutes. Keys join in. This sounds so good ! A calm after 5 minutes then it kicks back in a minute after that with guitar. This is the best part of the whole album for me. Bass 7 1/2 minutes in as it settles again. Demetrios starts to get involved vocally. It calms right down before 11 minutes with bass only then kicks back in. What a song ! "L'Internazionale" is actually AREA's version of the anthom of the "communist party" believe it or not, although i'm sure it never sounded like this before (haha). This is a killer track though. Incredible sound to open before it settles a minute in although the deep bass lines continue. It kicks in again at 2 minutes and the drums are relentless. Organ's turn and then it ends with chaos including some wild guitar.

I do prefer the studio versions of the first three tracks but those last two songs are amazing. Overall an excellent addition to any collection especially for AREA fans. Take a trip back in time.

4 stars Just another good (and the first live) recording of Area! The first three compositions are absolute classics of them from their first three albums.
