Fans of Renaissance and Annie Haslam
Many Renaissance fans also enjoy the music of Yes, don't they? A lot of us listened to the two bands interchangeably back in the day. The bands' music is timeless. My aim in the 1990s was to publish an authorized Renaissance biography based on the band history you'll find at Northern Lights, but the band wasn't interested in supporting the project. Several Yes biographies were written, the first and many think the best was written by Dan Hedges.
In addition to a…Continue

The release of A Symphonic Journey has brought back wonderful memories of the time that I saw the band in 1977 with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in Manchester, just prior to the Royal Albert Hall concert that is available on the King Biscuit Hour CDs. Does anyone know if there is any video footage anywhere from this tour, or the 1975 Carnegie Hall shows?
Heey, After more than 25 years I listened to my Scheherazade copy so I could digitize it. When I turned the LP and listened I remembered the fact that side two is not Renaissance but a, to me, unknown band. Has anyone any idea Which band is on side two???

Not sure if this has been posted yet, but, I found the complete concert videos of the 2 shows used for the dvd release "Song of Sheherazade" are availble to view online on wolfgangs vault's concert vault website http://www.concertvault.com/#search.html?t=Renaissance&tb=0&_suid=140132001060609050121939320663.
Here are the tracks lists.
Are there any UK fans who joined in the Kickstarter campaign?
If so, have you received your CD yet?
I've got the download, but no CD yet.
Does anyone know if the band are likely to play the UK anytime soon?
Finally got hold of one of these -- in fact, not one but two copies, would you believe it, from the same seller in separate transactions: a pristine one for the vault, and a slightly damaged/stained one to scan and photoshop for this presentation.
I don't know the full details, but the images and text (particularly the MG T-shirt offer therein -- $5 for the shirt plus…Continue

Long time no see........it has been a very, very busy year but with the new Renaissance tour announced I've been finding time to poke around the band's website and Facebook page as well as dust off this blog. I've been meaning to do this for awhile anyway, but since these two great albums will be…Continue

I'm still torn: is it worth changing names mid-course? Or does the stronger and hosting platform independent "brand" identity help? I'm leaning toward sticking with the new name, in case…Continue
