Parigi-Lisbona is a live album by Italian Jazz fusion band Area released in 1996 and recorded in 1976 in Paris and Lisbon, while the band was supporting their third album "Crac!". In the Paris section of the CD, Demetrio Stratos announces himself the songs in French, and even sings "La Mela di Odessa" as "La Pomme de Odessa". Just like the other phostmous release "Concerto Teatro Uomo", "Parigi-Lisbona" received criticism due to the sound quality of the recordings, and because some tracks contain edits. This album in 2002 was repackaged with other phostomous live album "Concerto Teatro Uomo" on the boxset "Live Concerts Box". This second version contains two bonus tracks (not taken from either concert).
