The first 10 years of MAGMA were celebrated on three memorable evenings in June 1980 at Olympia. This retrospective, reuniting most of the musicians who had performed in the group, was issued as two albums, RETROSPEKTIW 1 / 2 (double) and RETROSPEKTIW 3 (single). Issued first, RETROSPEKTIW 3 comprises 3 titles
RETROVISION, a long piece in the style of the album ATTAHK, in which the vocalists Stella VANDER, Guy KHALIFA and Maria POPKIEWICZ turn in a blazing performance over a driving rhythm section; a supercharged version of HHAI, in which the trio LOCKWOOD / PAGANOTTI / WIDEMANN works miracles; and finally LA DOWOTSIN, where, in a more muted register, the voice of Christian VANDER triumphs through its mastery and profound sensibility.
