3 stars The release of this album one year after the huge commercial success of its predecessor was just a commercial operations. One thing is releasing a double live album where masterpieces and weaker songs can co-exist so that the weaker things are masked by the goodies. Another thing is taking some of the material discarded from the"Volume 1" to fill a "Volume 2" one year after.

As result we have a still good album, because of the great songwriting of FDA and the great musicianship of PFM, but no highlights.

The live versions of those songs are not much better than the studio, and in particular the last two songs, taken from FDA's masterpiece "La Buona Novella" are better arranged in PFM's "AD 2010" album and were playeed by almost the same artists even on the original FDA album.

However I think that the songs are too well played to consider this album just a collector item, so I can round up my rating to 3 stars with a complain for the label who has released it: a double album would have been a milestone of Italian music in general. This sort of "B-side" sounds just as a well recorded bootleg.
