It was early afternoon on June 17th, 2000, when D.F.A. took the stage for their first-ever live performance in the USA. Many among the 1,000-strong audience of progressive music enthusiasts were seemingly unfamiliar with the Italian band and its music, but as the show progressed it became evident that history was in the making, and that D.F.A. were becoming instant stars on the international 'progressive music' scene. Each successive song was greeted with a bigger roar of applause as the outstanding mastery of the four instrumentalists became obvious to all, in spite of their relaxed, almost laid-back stage presence. European rock bands have always pursued the 'American dream', and crossing the Atlantic to present their music to American audiences was a challenge D.F.A. perhaps didn't hope to achieve as quickly as they did. It came at the right moment, though, a few months after the release of their critically acclaimed second album "Duty Free Area". A definite progression on their debut, 1997's "Lavori In Corso", it displayed the same complex arrangements and virtuoso playing, while also adding a higher diversity of styles and sounds, and a more obvious melodic content. These qualities made D.F.A. an obvious candidate for NEARfest, a festival of innovative rock music that had quickly become the ultimate reference among lovers of the genre. D.F.A.'s stellar performance at NEARfest 2000 has certainly marked the beginning of a new exciting phase in the band's career. As such it deserved to be immortalized for posterity on digital medium. This CD provides a unique opportunity to be confronted with D.F.A.'s music at the peak of its powers. (Aymeric Leroy - Paris, April 2001)
DFA: Alberto De Grandis (drums, lead vocals); Alberto Bonomi (keyboards, back vocals); Silvio Minella (electric guitars); Luca Baldassari (bass guitar)
