Renaissance - Prologue Prologue
Pop New - LP SMAS 11116 Capitol
Sealed 1972 Gatefold Original With Radio Station Timing Strip On The Shrink Wrap. Clean COH. “The First Album By The '70s (I.E. Annie Haslam) Version Of Renaissance Is A Transitional Work, Rooted In More Standard Hard Rock Sounds (Including Psychedelia) Than What Followed. One Can Spot The Difference, Which May Please Some Listeners And Put Others Off, In The Fairly Heavy Guitar Sound Of "Prologue," Rob Hendry's Electric Instrument Playing Both Lead And Rhythm Parts Prominently At Various Times Behind Annie Haslam's Soaring Vocals And Adjacent To John Tout's Piano. "Kiev" May Also Startle Some Longtime Fans, Since Haslam Doesn't Handle The Lead Vocals, The Male Members' Singing Being Much More Prominent. The Ethereal, Flowingly Lyrical "Sounds Of The Sea" Is The Cut Here That Most Resembles The Music That The Group Became Known For In The Years Ahead, And Shows Haslam Singing In The High Register For Which She Would Become Famous. "Spare Some Love," With Its Prominent Folky Acoustic Guitar, Also Anticipates Material (Specifically "Let It Grow" And "On The Frontier") Off Of The Group's Better Known Second Album, Ashes Are Burning. The 11-Minute Epic "Rajah Khan," With Its Elements Of Raga-Rock, Including Sitar-Like Passages On Hendry's Electric Guitars And An Extended VCS 3 Synthesizer Solo By Francis Monkman, Is A More Advanced And Virtuoso Descendant Of Late '60s Psychedelia. The Sound Is Outstanding, And This Version Of Prologue Is To Be Preferred Over Capitol's Abortive Attempt To Reissue It In The Late 1980's As In The Beginning, Which Cut Some Of The Material And Had Totally Lackluster Sound.” Bruce Eder, AMG.... more details

Renaissance - Turn Of The Cards Turn Of The Cards
Pop Used - LP BTM 1000 BTM
Rare 1974 UK Original On The RCA Imprint. Appears Unplayed. “The Third Album By This Incarnation Of Renaissance Was A Match For Their Previous Success, Ashes Are Burning, With Equally Impressive Performances And Songwriting And A Few New Musical Twists Added. The Songs Here Fit More Easily Into A Rock Vein, And The Prior Album's Folk Influences Are Gone. Turn Of The Cards Rocks A Bit Harder, Albeit Always In A Progressive Rock Manner, And Jon Camp's Bass And Terence Sullivan's Drums Are Both Harder And Heavier Here, The Bass (The Group's Only Amplified Instrument) In Particular Much More Forward In The Mix. This Change Works In Giving The Band A Harder Sound That Leaves Room For Jimmy Horowitz's Orchestral Accompaniments, Which Are Somewhat More Prominent Than Those Of Richard Hewson On The Prior Album, With The Horns And Strings, In Particular, More Exposed. Annie Haslam Is In Excellent Voice Throughout, And Finds Ideal Accompaniment In Michael Dunford's Acoustic Guitar And John Tout's Piano. The Writing Team Of Dunford And Betty Thatcher Also Adds Some New Wrinkles To The Group's Range -- In Addition To Progressive Rock Ballads Like "I Think Of You," They Delivered "Black Flame," A Great Dramatic Canvas For Haslam And Tout, In Particular; And "Mother Russia" Is A Surprising (And Effective) Move Into Topical Songwriting, Dealing With The Plight Of Alexander Solzhenitsyn And Other Victims Of Soviet Repression (You Had To Be There In The 1970s To Realize What A Burning Issue This Was). And Then There Were The Soaring, Pounding Group Virtuoso Numbers Like "Things I Don't Understand," Which Managed To Hold Audience Interest Across Nine Or Ten Minutes Of Running Time.” Bruce Eder, AMG.... more details

Renaissance - Live At Carnegie Hall Live At Carnegie Hall
Pop Used - LP SASY 3902-2 Sire
Rare 1976 2LP White Label Promo Housed In A Gatefold Jacket. Cut Corner. Both LPs Appear Glossy, Unplayed. “The Fourth Great Album In A Row For Renaissance, Live At Carnegie Hall Was Recorded At Three Concerts On June 20, 21, And 22, 1975, At New York's Carnegie Hall. Although No One Could Have Known It At The Time, It Also Marked The High Point Of The Group's Influence And Acceptance -- Waiting In The Wings, At Just About The Time This Album Was Released The Following Year, Was The Punk Rock Boom And, A Little After That, The Disco Boom, Which Would Quickly Sour Audiences And Critics On Progressive Rock. Recorded On Tour Ahead Of The Release Of Scheherazade And Other Stories, This Was The Most Ambitious Concert Venture To Come Out Of The Progressive Rock Boom Of The 1970s Up To That Time, Featuring The Group Accompanied By The (Uncredited) New York Philharmonic, Whose Playing Shows Up On Several Numbers, But Is Mostly Here For "Song Of Scheherazade," Which Took Up One Side Of The Original Double LP. The Truly Distinctive Cut, However, Is "Ashes Are Burning," Which Is Turned Into An Extended Jam Showcasing John Tout's Piano And John Camp's Bass In Gorgeous Solo Passages. “ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide.... more details

This Copy Comes From Dr. Demento's Personal Archives. “This Is One Of The Better Late-Era Renaissance Albums From The Original Continuity Of The "Mark II" Lineup Of The Group (Which Is The One Everyone Knows). It's Also Something Of A Step Up From The Two Preceding Albums, With Lush, Melodic Passages, Beautiful Lyrics, And Some Splendid Playing By All Concerned. Moreover, It Rocks Pretty Well Too, Songs Like "Secret Mission" Being One Of The Better Showcases For The Group's Rhythm Section, As Well As Offering Annie Haslam In A Glittering, Dramatic Showcase For Her Vocals. The Overall Sound Is Compelling, And When Haslam Gets A Piece Of Music Into Which She Can Sink Her Teeth, Such As "The Flood At Lyons," The Results Are Breathtaking.” Bruce Eder AMG.... more details

It, Too, Has Little To Do With The Sound That The Group Subsequently Adopted (Although It Does Intersect, In The Most Peripheral Way, With "Song Of Scheherazade" And Some Of The Other Eastern-Theme Works That Preceded It), But The Track Is Entertaining And Does Show Off A Startlingly Different Type Of Art-Rock Toward Which This Group Could Have Gravitated.” Bruce Eder, AMG.... more details
