Third LP in three years and substantially third center in a row, this was “Felona and Sorona”, the definitive consecration record for Le Orme, who became dominators of the Italian progressive rock scene, a status that still resists the inexorable passing of the years.
The long opener “Sospesi nell’incredibile” shows how rules have definitely been broken: “Felona and Sorona” can therefore be seen as a statement of freedom and artistic independence, waved in front of an even wider audience. In 1973 in fact the so-called ‘new avant-garde pop’ was so popular as to influence the famous artists (such as De André with “E tutti morimmo a stento” or Battisti with “Amore e non amore”) and many musicians were not afraid to break barriers, album after album.
“Felona and Sorona” is, in short, a masterpiece, of those who are made only once in a lifetime, impossible to replicate and therefore even more unique and special.
The album was released in two versions, one sung in Italian and the other in English on lyrics written by Peter Hammill from Van Der Graaf Generator. This is the English edition, a faithful replica of the original edition on transparent blue vinyl.
