This special 2-CD set, commissioned and presented by MoonJune Records, features DFA's first two critically-acclaimed cult albums: "Lavori In Corso" (1996), and "Duty Free Area" (1999) -- both digitally remastered, and are presented together in this special package which includes three live bonus tracks.Keyboardist Alberto Bonomi's fluid phrasings serve to perfectly compliment guitarist Silvio Minela's soaring jazz fusion lines. With enviable technical abilities, the band brings to mind previously-applied paradigms set forth by Gentle Giant, King Crimson, National Health and such -- combining linear themes, blazing crescendos and sweet, melodic opuses, to create Mahavishnu Orchestra-type intensity with the softly-woven sensibilities of the melodic rock.This follow-up to MoonJune's 2001 D.F.A. release, "Work In Progress Live", is essential listening for all prog fans -- clearly illustrating, in flamboyant fashion, why D.F.A. were so popular with progressive music fans all over Europe. Featuring over two hours of great music.
