5 stars This is the best way to get into their music, if you didn't tried them yet. I must admit, this was my first contact with Le Orme. I have heard of them, I have read reviews, and some people describe them as an italian ELP. Well, I love italian prog -I know, I love almost every kind of prog, but- and Emerson, Lake and Palmer are my all time favorites, so I decided to try this package. I thought that it couldn't be bad at all. But goddamn, this is awesome! It starts with the four first songs from L'infinito (2004), very creative songs, and the keyboards are very impressive. The use of the citar helps to create a different atmosphere, in a good way. So we have the full "A Side" performance from Uomo Di Pezza (1972), and hell, the show is getting better and better. Finishing with Cemento Armato (Collage, 1971), Aldo Tagliapietra briefly introduces the second half of the show, Felona E Sorona, the album from 1973, played entirely. I just can't full describe this, it's a masterpiece. The first song puts you into the mood for the album, without mistakes. The drummer is very prog, and I like his basketball jersey. Maybe the best live performance I ever seen. This DVD is actually my favorite into my collection.
