'Magma tend to engender extreme reactions both positive and negative... this set, with its informative sleevenotes and excellent design, is the perfect way to find out which side of the fence you're on.' ★★★★ William Pinfold, Record Collector

3CD SET FEATURING THREE LANDMARK ALBUMS FROM THE GIANTS OF FRENCH PROG ROCK

Magma were in many ways the ultimate progressive-rock group. Under the leadership of their classically trained drummer Christian Vander the group conjured up a truly cosmic vision of the universe, inventing its own language and mythology to get its message across.

Magma’s music combined elements of jazz, R&B, heavy rock and psychedelia into a heady cocktail and their spectacular live shows were legendary.  This 3CD set brings together two classic Magma albums, Attahk and Udü Wüdü, along with a vintage live performance.

Udü Wüdü  was recorded in 1976 in Paris at the peak of Magma’s popularity; the album’s undoubted highlight is the 17-minute epic ‘De Futura’, described by Vander himself as a magical and enchanting voyage through time.

Released in 1978, Attahk is one of Magma’s most vibrant and accessible albums and marked a new phase in the group’s musical journey. Placing more emphasis than before on rhythm, rumbling bass lines and lead vocals, all driven along by Vander's inspired drumming, this new sound is reminiscent at times of those two other popular and intense fusion groups of the time, Mahavishnu Orchestra and Return To Forever.

Magma Live was originally released as a double album, recorded at one of the band’s spectacular live shows in Paris in 1975. The set includes the awesome 32-minute epic ‘Köhntark.’
