Renaissance:- The Revival Of Art And Learning
on 7 August 2011
As i write this there is only one review of this little known masterpiece by Renaissance MK I; criminal. I always wonder what the music business would have been like if Keith Relf hadn't been tragically taken away from us?, his parting was a loss that cannot be underestimated. I've a real soft spot for this classy, cool and original piece of work, the songs are beautifully crafted and takes you on an journey of love, dreams and of course illusion but it's very subjective and like all great works listeners will have their own views and perspective, the theme threads it's way through the album with understated brilliance, the playing is superior, so precise and clear at times that it will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck, the crisp and angelic vocals of Jane Relf add a further dimension to this masterpiece and am i the only person on the planet who believes Janes' vocals are just as good as Annies'?. This is an album that was created by people who love music, who wanted to create something special and different and i'd like to thank them for giving me the listener the pleasure of enjoying it for past years and for years to come. P.S. My vinyl copy and CD copy Repertoire-5106 dont have the three extra tracks on them as what is listed on this new Esoteric copy, i've listened to the three extra tracks and feel that although of interest add nothing to the album overall and in my opinion 'Past Orbits Of Dust' was a perfect finale to this great album.
