      THis is the smallest track from BOBINO 1981 concert, on AKT.
      Great (and unique ?) 2CD worth-it album of the 1980's period of Magma, with strong fusion
      and even Motown influences (a la "Looove boaaat ! La la la la..."). ALmost unedited
      tracks, technically furious and sometimes very funny ! No comparison with "Merci" for
      example...Includes 30 minutes extract from unfinished Zess (3 hours long ?!?!),
      Retrovision (like in Retrospectiw III), Otis (Yep: a tribute to Otis Redding), Hhai (the
      craziest one), etc... Vander is half behind his drum, half singing.

      You'd better never even try to listen too much from Lockwood's albums...Every body is
      disapointed ! ONly one is "good", with half Magma: it's titled "Fusion".
