Which of the RPI big three do you love the most?

Gotta be PFM for me, followed by Le Orme then Banco.
Porg for short. My love of music doesn't end with prog! Feel free to discuss all sorts of music with me. Odds are I'll give it a chance if I haven't already! :)

PFM.

My disc copy of Storia Di Un Minuto arrived yesterday! Not a lick of English in the entire damn booklet, just as I'd want it, lol. Cool

Love all three for sure. Le Orme is definitely my fave. I do have lots of LPís from each of these greats, maybe 15 Orme, and around 10 each of the others.

For some reason I haven't explored Le Orme much apart from Felona e Sonora, which I like a lot.
Banco appealed to me from the first listen and this applies to all of their material I know (I don't know the albums that have a really low rating, but then I don't think I need to). I'm still delighted by the quality of their last, Transiberiana, and was meant to see them live this year, which didn't happen because of Covid.
PFM have far less of a direct appeal to me, but I got into them a bit more over the last year or so.

Difficult choice for me between Banco and PFM. Also depends on the moment and the mood. Will think about it.

Banco all the time. The first three albums are essential in any prog collection.

While I fully appreciate the talent and skill of Banco (as well as Le Orme), I've always connected with PFM's music better.

Le Orme for sure. Strong for the whole 70s. Banco were a bit patchy and Pfm dropped off by mid 70s
All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

I have loved all three, and all three were early discoveries of mine when I was getting into deeply exploring Prog around 2004. Banco del Mutuo Soccorso Is the one that held my interest the most. Itís also kind of interesting to me that the big Italian three, and big four if one includes Area, each had three albums that I considered to be masterpieces, and in the case of the big three, those all were released between 1972 and 1974.

Banco, easily, for me. I never really got much into PFM, while Francesco Di Giacomo has become one of my 3 favourite singers ever.

wow...  lot of love for Banco...  nice to see but never felt it myself.  Easily brings up the caboose of the big 6 train of Italian prog... just never connected with me. Though Metamorphosi is easily one of my top 20 speaker killer songs ever...  

really tight between PFM and Le Orme...  I do love my power trios and met the guys from the group and found them to be wonderful guys.. so a vote for the magnificent Le Orme who took ELP's inspiration and their fire.. but also quite simply did some of the prettiest and heartfelt prog I think anyone has done.

Metamorphosi is unbelievably loud for the year it came out, lol. Big fan of it. Also agreed on Le Orme doing some of the most beautiful prog in prog. Felona E Sorona.

Amazingly I still voted for PFM. That's just how much I love Per Un Amico.
Porg for short. My love of music doesn't end with prog! Feel free to discuss all sorts of music with me. Odds are I'll give it a chance if I haven't already! :)
