STORMY SIX: Megafono (dbl CD)
A collection of Live recordings made between 1976 and 1982 in Italy, France, Germany and at the London RIO festival, covering the whole range of the group's repertoire and a lot more that didn't appear on the records, much of it in the involved chamber mode, but also straying into abstract, experimental, Zappaesque silliness, weird and downright eccentric territories that are absent from the official records. The second CD is more or less music-theatre. The sound quality is variable, so this is for those who know the group already, but for them it's pretty eye-opening. Warning to prog mavens, there is a long stretch of comedy material here and ReR will not accept responsibility for any loss of cool that may occur. An interesting, mixed up, band with a lot of conflicting dimensions all out on the table here. Fascinating.
