Let me know if you want me to remove the vinyl from the cover to help prevent splits.

After the moderate success of the debut album "Live in Montreux", Agorà
published their first and only studio work in 1976. The possibilities offered by
the recording studio seemed more congenial to their proposal, which turns
out to be a deeply matured LP, technically flawless and with songs that still
belong to the best Italian jazz-rock, with a more intense jazz component at
the expense of the progressive one.
Unfortunately, both “Agora 2” and the single “Cavalcata Solare” taken from
this work were almost completely ignored, in a period in which the vast
universe that revolves around the Italian progressive was slowly decaying.
The Atlantic label, also due to a very poor familiarity with the Italian bands
and scene, didn’t renew Agorà’s contract and the group disbanded after a
final appearance at the Parco Lambro Festival in 1976, with their various
members that dispersing in many other jazz bands, in some cases up to the
present day.
“Agorà 2” still sounds wonderfully today, and deserves a respectable place
within a serious Italian progressive rock discography. The album is here
reissued on LP for the first time ever, in a faithful reproduction of the original
edition of ‘76.
