The Phoenix is (re)born. This 2 cd box set recollects for the first time the two faces of Pocket Orchestra, a cult RIO band from the USA: the «studio side», a re-mastered version of the Knebnagäuje cd, and the «live side», nine tracks taken from original live performance (Udi Koomran gave new life to both sides). These are not just a mere document of the era: besides different (and enlarged) versions of well-known songs, here you can find rarities and unreleased tracks. But, most of all, finally you can listen to a Pocket Orchestra show: powerful sound, virtuosity, craziness, improvisations and an unexpected live quality for such a complex music.
