Limited transparent vinyl LP pressing. Collage was the second LP by Le Orme, and follows their 1968 beat/psychedelic Ad Gloriam. These elements almost completely disappeared in Collage, which was rather strongly affected by progressive rock contaminations from Great Britain, the territory in which the genre was spreading like wildfire already in 1971. Because of the military service, the young authors of Ad Gloriam became a trio: Tony Pagliuca (keyboards), Michi Dei Rossi (drums) and Aldo Tagliapietra (vocals, bass, acoustic guitar); the first of the three especially took a trip to England to explore the new rock sound of the time, and when he returned home the Italian pop music panorama changed forever. Collage is today a classic, both in it's iconic cover photo and it's music: never before had anyone in the Italian peninsula heard anything like that, if not of foreign origin. A cornerstone of what was then still called 'Italian pop', fundamental not only within the prog scene.
