Le Orme

Uomo di pezza

Release Notes
  • 180gr Solid Blue Vinyl
  • Remastered

“Uomo di Pezza” (1972) renews the collaboration between Le Orme, producer Gian Piero Reverberi and Philips record label, on which the group debuted the previous year with “Collage”. As with the previous work, rock and pop are mixed with symphonic elements, creating another cornerstone of Italian progressive rock.

This is the album of the popular “Gioco di bimba”, one of the most famous Le Orme’s songs, also released on 45rpm at the time. On a ‘progressive’ point of view, “Uomo di Pezza” can be seen as a transition LP, suspended between the beautiful “Collage” and the masterpiece “Felona and Sorona”, but still important to understand the rapid evolution of an essential band.
