** restocked ** Killer release that puts together, in this sumptuous box set, all the Magma's official live shows, recorded between 1975 and 2000. On top of which are two extra records made of excerpts from shows given between 2005 and 2011, as well as two unreleased records of the unforgettable 2009 concert given at the Alhambra in Paris.
For Magma, live performance is essential. Live performance allows – and forgives – no mistakes. You give your all, all at once. You are on a tight-rope, with no safety net… It is too late for thought. The body, the hands and the instinct speak first; the fruit of reflection. This planned spontaneity, these raw sounds, this savage energy at concerts make live performance a wonderful experience.
