It was over thirty years ago that I saw Renaissance perform live at Hammermsith Odeon! They were becoming increasingly unfashionable as punk /new wave challenged the old guard prog rockers. However, for me then, and now, both types of music offer both good and bad. This album offers a mixture of classically influenced rock and pop at its very best. The music, lyrics, and performances are all worthy of a five star rating ( and this particular reviewer doesn't give this rating very often!). The band are augmented by an orchestra and managed to pull off that feat to great effect, which again is quite rare. Find a place in your ear, heart, and music collection for this amazing set and imagine yourself in New York's Carnegie Hall witnessing one sublime collection of musicians and beautiful songs!
