[Le Orme 20011118 Mexico City] Flac set shared as torrent on Dime by metro_cubo.
TLH analysis - fingerprints
Stereo audience recording.
This show has previously been circulating dated as November 18th 2001 even though the info file for this set has a November 21st date.
There are some repetead bits of digital error here and there, needs rework.

"Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my reward for all the work involved in this project.

Got this one in trade in 2002. This tour was probably the peak for Le Orme´s final phase which resulted on the trilogy albums Il Fiume, Elementi and L´Infinito. After that, Aldo Tagliapietra left the band and started a parallel solo career. I sad seen this tour a bit earlier, in september, and was highly impressed. The extra-long setlist featured the whole of three albums, side 1 of Uomo di Pezza and few other oldies. Top-notch list!
I always like Le Orme, and still find a great pleasure to watch them, even today (last time I saw the band was about 6 weeks ago in a double gig with New Trolls) that they are back as a trio. But with Aldo in the band it was surely the real thing. Almost 3 hours of pure italian progressive!" ldb
