A must have for PFM lovers
Georges Poulin | Canada | 01/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If it was not for the quality of the sound,which can be rated as good, not excellent, this CD could or should stand at the top of any list of PFM albums. In terms of performance, inspiration, virtuosity, and fun, this one is an absolute gem.

Moreover, it contains the first live rendition of PFM's classic Alta Loma, which is worth the price of the CD alone. Well,for someone willing to pay the extra bucks for this Japanese high quality pressing of the original Cook, of course. Thanks to the 20 bit K2 Super Coding process, the quality of the sound is somewhat better here than that of the original recording, with the music rendition less laid back and more dynamic.

All of the tracks (4 holes in the ground; Dove... Quando...; Just look away; Celebration (best version ever recorded); Mr Nine till Five; Alta Loma 5 till 9), are PFM classics.

Except for Piazza, replaced by Djivas, all of the original members of the band were there (Mussida on guitar; Pagani on violin and flute; Premoli on keyboards; Di Cioccio on drums) and the synergy is nothing less than fabulous.

In spite of the quality of the sound, which could still be a bit better, - I strongly recommend this album to whoever wants to find out what PFM was capable of during its prime, and believe me PFM's live performances were really outstanding : inspired, and generous.

"I thought it was better then any of their studio albums. These guys are hot."
An (almost) forgotten masterpiece!!

"I am ASHAMED I (almost) forgot about these guys!! Had this album back in High school (late 70s) and a buddy had this and 2 others (recognize the cover for We Became the World, not sure what the other one was, don't recognize any of the other covers.)

Haven't listened to it in 20+ years!! Got it last week, have listened to it 3 times so far and it's every bit as good as I remember!!

My favorite track is, without a doubt, the 15 minute closer, Altaloma Nine Till Five, but it is a prog rock masterpiece that should be in the collection of every lover of prog, or even fusion for that matter.

Gonna get "We Became the World" next, then maybe something else!!"
