Live in Torino 1977 is a live album by Italian Jazz fusion band Area released in 2004 and recorded in 1977 in Milan, while the band was supporting their fifth album Maledetti (Maudits). Even though the album received praise for the musical content, this album was heavily criticized for its sound quality (it's an audience recording) and for some packaging errors: there is an uncredited performance of "Diforisma Urbano" on "Il Massacro Di Brandeburgo Numero Tre in Sol Maggiore" and "Improvvisazione" is actually "Are(a)zione" with a brief excerpt of "Gioia e Rivoluzione" [1]).
