Magma - Mythes et Legends Volume One DVD

In May, 2005, Magma took over the Parisian club "Le Triton" for four weeks with an ambitious, over the top project; a retrospective of 35 years of Magma music, showcasing some of their best known pieces from 1970 to the present. The four sold-out weeks were a major success. This is the first of a series of four DVDs which capture the best of these performances for the world beyond Le Triton to enjoy them. The band here includes the current line-up of Magma (Christian Vander, Stella Vander, James Mac Gaw, Emmanuel Borghi, Philippe Bussonnet, Isabelle Feuillebois, Antoine Paganotti, Himiko Paganotti), special guest Klaus Blasquiz (vocals) and a 3-piece saxophone section. The emphasis here is on the period 1970-1972 (Kobaia, 1001 Degrees Centigrade & the earliest versions of MDK). Tracks are: Malaria, Stoah, "Iss" Lansei Doai, Aurae, Kobaia, Theusz Hamtaahk 1st movement, Sowiloi, KMX B12. Total time is over two hours and this is beyond unbelievably wonderful. Highly recommended.

OK. If you're a fan of the early Magma material, like me, you're in for a treat. The first half of the gig is a brilliant set from the first two albums. The horns are amazing, and makes you wonder why they ever got rid of them! Blasquiz on vocals is a joy. Need I say that Vander's drumming is genius? They play this music with such energy and sincerity. Truely truely amazing. Being someone who isn't old enough to remember the 80s let along the 70s, this is the closest thing I've ever heard to finding a time portal and heading back to 1970. If you don't already own this, and you've got this far, the buy it now! Magma created some of the greatest music of the 20th century. Michael
