Artist: Saga
Title: The Chapters Live
Genre: Progressive Rock
Label: Inside Out

Saga fans will be in their glory now, the definitive moment has arrived in a live set.
The Chapters Live is available now on this two CD set. All sixteen chapters that
came together over several years for the band, the words and music that comprised eight
albums of music that started in 1978, is here, captured live, all of it for the first
time. Think about it, what prog-rock album do you know of took 28 years to reach its
fruition? This is it, your looking at it.

I could not be more impressed with this set. The 36-page booklet takes you through all the
lyrics and the live music is fresh and vital. Simply put, it does not get much better than
this, wellif it was in a DVD-A format with 5.1 surround sound, now that would be amazing.
Just wait, I am sure it is coming right around the corner. Speaking of DVDsthe band just
recorded their classic album Worlds Apart on 12/8 for DVD recently so watch for that, it
is sure to be a keeper. In early 2006, a new studio album is due as well. So the Saga
continues, no pun intended.

I was very pleased with this set, the sound is good, the band is as tight as they have
ever been, sounding inspired and crisp every step of the way. For a live recording, this
is very good, I cannot complain about the overall sonics and presentation. I love this
music and I always have. Saga is unique, an entity that is beyond compare. Let's face it,
nobody sounds like them, and they have managed to maintain their popularity even though
the band broke up at one point during their career. There is no doubt with this release, a
new studio album released this year titled Network, which by the way some folks say is
their best in 20 years, they are making some waves. So this band's career is entering a
new phase, a renaissance if you will, as fans old and new take hold and embrace their
recorded output-in turn prog-rock continues to gain more respect and popularity.

The Chapters Live is an absolute must, I say no more. If you are into prog-rock and
love this band as I do, this is a no brainer.
