3 stars Catchy and interesting compilation of LE ORME's first hits in Italy, that I got together with previous and debut band's album, "Ad Gloriam". With songs spanning from mid-60s to late- 60s the result is unbalanced although individually almost all songs are pleasant and hearable.

The first chords of 'L'aurora' brings some progressive climate but later the song goes pop; it was a hit in Brazil, so I presume it was a hit in Italy and other selected countries. Anyway, vocals with that ORME's characteristic signature are more than blatant.

'Finita la scuola' has the unique band aroma and could be included in further band's works since it sounds ahead of its time. 'Casa mia' shows fine arrangements and vocals, one of the highest moments in this compilation.

'Era un anno fa' is another great moment, with its weird choir a laTHE NICE. 'Tutto passera' becomes very agreeable for being so dated. 'Dovunque andrai' is a typical 60s Italian hard-rock while 'Fiori e colori' displays flowers and colors more tuned with the classical and psychedelic rock songs of the same era.

The same consideration I did for "Ad Gloriam" is valid for "L'Aurora Delle Orme": a necessary work when trailing ISP/RPI story but simply good, even non-essential if one is aiming real progressive albums. Rating: 3.
