3 stars This DVD features a short documentary about the history of the band. Alvaro Fella, Daniele Bianchini and Aldo Gargano talk about the beginnings of "Jumbo's adventure" and the Italian prog rock scene of the early seventies while some excerpts from "DNA" and "Vietato ai minori di 18 anni?" are in the background (the dialogs are in Italian with English subtitles). You can see also many old pictures that can give you an idea of the "halcyon days" of the band. An unplugged version of "La strada porta al fiume", from Jumbo's debut album closes the first part of the DVD.

The second part features some live excerpts from a concert in 1995. Many tracks are taken from the most recent albums ("Folle corsa", "La mia vita", "Bella & finta", "Metropolis" and "Lakota"). Nothing special indeed, although the final track, a long and original version of "Suite per il sig. K." is absolutely worth listen to.

The DVD ends with some short excerpts from a live performance in Paris in 1990. The Paris concert should be released on a future DVD although the quality of the videos taken from that show that you can see here are very far from perfect...

The booklet and the packaging are poor: no photographs and the biography of the band by Augusto Croce is taken from website... So, on the whole I found this DVD interesting but a little bit disappointing.
