Orme - 1967 - 69 : 2 x CDs

SKU 33-OA 60.16
Before they emerged in 1971 with Collage, firmly establishing themselves as one of the top Italian progressive rock bands of the 70s and one of the originators of the RPI template, Le Orme released a number of late 60s singles and an album which were very much of the psychedelic spirit of the times, mixed with a bit of their ‘beat group’ beginnings.
This collects that album and those singles in one package. Hear the band as they started; a quintet of organ/celeste/electric piano, guitars, flutes, cellos, bass, drums and vocals. This is psychedelic beat music; just what you would expect for 1968 and excellent, wide-eyed and innocent stuff. Acid leads, cute harmonies, sound affects and lots of paisleys! And they play all the orchestrations themselves!
It is a lot of fun hearing them (and it is quite obviously them) playing this stuff. Some folks think it is the best psychedelic stuff to come out of 1960s Italy; I'm not familiar enough to comment, but I will say that it's very good.
