Crac! is the third studio album by Area and was released in 1975. Crac! is a standout album in jazz-fusion, avant-garde and progressive rock scenes, yet somehow neither genre would appropriately classify its music. They cut back on experimentation and stuck mainly with their incredible, unique and mind blowing fusion playing.

La Mela Di Odessa (1920). Demetrio Stratos - Vocals, organ, clavicembalo, steel drums, percussion. Ares Tavolazzi - Acoustic bass, electric bass,trombone.

Crac! is the third album of the Jazz fusion band Area and was released in 1975. With this album, the band gained more popularity in Italy, thanks to songs like "L'elefante Bianco", "La Mela di Odessa (1920)" and "Gioia e Rivoluzione", which quickly became concert favourites. All songs were written by Tofani, Fariselli and Tavolazzi, except for "Area 5" which was written by Juan Hidalgo and Walter Marchetti.

The third mid-'70s album from Italy's progresssive rock forerunners Area originally appeared on the experimental Cramps label and is reissued here for the first time. Favoring incredibly complex rhythms à la King Crimson, the group's fusion of folk and ethnic music, leftist political diatribe, and free jazz and hard rock coalesces into a distinctive sound further accented by the abstractions of vocalist Demitrio Stratos.
