One of the most important and loved Italian prog bands, and one of the most famous among foreign listeners. Le Orme were another of those bands coming from the beat era that had the most convincing musical evolution in the 70’s. They were formed in Marghera (near Venice) in 1966 but their debut came in 1967 with “Fiori e colori”, recorded by the original four-piece line-up.
The band had a successful single with “Senti l’estate che torna” and recorded their first album “Ad Gloriam” at the end of 1968, releasing it the following year.
Housed in a psychy sleeve the album is still regarded as one of the best in the Italian beat, with the music having a slight psychedelic touch in songs like “Io non so restare solo”, “Fumo”, “Milano 1968”. In 1970 the band signed a contract with Philips, that released their subsequent 10 albums in ten years. The old label Car Juke Box released “L’Aurora delle Orme”, a compilation of their singles tracks that’s also very rare now.
