1 stars Le Orme - Live Orme (1986)

Le Orme is a classic Italian melodic symphyonic prog group. As a vinyl collector it is kind of hard to find proper records of Le Orme in Holland, so I didn't hesitate to long when I found this reprint of 'Live Orme'. As many reviewers mentioned, this is a compilations of live recordings from Le Orme during its classic period. Lot's of important symphonic/progressive tracks and a complete version of Felona e Sorona. Don't take me wrong. Le Orme is an excellant band and the performance is good.

What other reviewers didn't mention was that the quality of the recording is like really poor. I would consider this to be a bad bootleg. I really dislike buying a record of poor quality without it being mentioned on the frontcover of the album. Don't think of that 'mediocre live recording' - this is just plain bad. Therefore I won't give more then one star, and in my humble opinion other reviewers haven't fully taken into account the way ratings should be given. A low-quality recording like this one is only suited for hardcore fans and completionists, those who really want to have some idea of how Le Orme sounded live and are willing to listen to music that sounds as if produced by a douche-radio.

Therefore, one star. I fellt deceived.
