    New Gibraltar Encyclopedia Of Progressive Rock:
    For Emerson, Lake, and Palmer fans, who like the three man classical-rock format style will undoubtedly love Le Orme, who's Nice, ELP, Trace, and Ekseption similarities are evident. Although similar, in my opinion Le Orme were the best of the genre who mixed the pompous classical rock of the Nice with the elegance and sophistication of the Italians. Although their first two albums are rare '60s beat-music, Le Orme's best albums starting with Collage and the ones that followed, all featuring incredible statements for the three-man band format and are highly recommended to any lover of progressive music. Also great are their fourth through sixth including the classics Uomo Di Pezza, Felona E Sorona (who's English version had lyrics by Peter Hammill), and their opus Contappunti...
    ...I wanted to find other great progressive bands from other countries other than England and when I read a write-up in a prog rock book about Italy's "big three" I became curious. These three were PFM, Banco and Le Orme. The writer of this book had high regards for the haunting melodic passages in Le Orme's music especially. My journey into their music proved well worth the visit. Now that I am familiar with many other prog bands from Europe from the '70's, I can honestly say that Le Orme were the most consistent in melody output. Simply put, Le Orme were the best prog band to come out of Europe south of England!! The lead singer, Aldo Tagliapietra, was one of the few Italian singers with a clean voice and he was the group's main song writer from day one. Their biggest pop hit was "Irene" which came out the year before they became a prog band. Then they released my favourite album of their's called Collage which yielded two of their most powerful tunes - both keyboard driven called "Collage" and "Sguardo Verso il Cielo". The next two were also classics - Uomo di Pezza and their most highly rated Felona e Sorona with their signature song "Sospesi nell'incredibile". Their sound reminds me of the kind of music you may have heard in the '70's while at a roller rink only with a progressive twist and Italian lyrics...
