Fans of Renaissance and Annie Haslam

Hi everyone, I'm pleased to be here. I started the first Renaissance website back in 1996 and later on wrote the liner notes for the HTD Records compact disc re-releases of Turn Of The Cards and Scheherazade And Other Stories. I wrote to the booking agency for Steve Hackett and Renaissance a few months back and suggested the State Theatre in Falls Church, Virginia as an ideal venue for them to play in in the Washington, D.C. area and sure enough they booked it. I'll see you there. :)

Welcome! Kudos for your early Renaissance/Interweb work!

I remember your URL (well, almost: I had to google for it) -- I was hoping that the Internet Wayback Machine would have a copy of your original Renaissance page, but their oldest version is from 1998 and that was already a jump page to Joe Lynn's url.

I'll be at Falls Church. Looks like a great venue.

I remember "turn of the cards" liner notes. I hope band members reconice your writer talent. Across your words more people can appreciate again this band. Thanks.
In other way, what happen whit HTD Records?

Esa: Interesting......yes, I wish I had saved some of those pages, too. :) The State Theater is a great venue for rock bands - I've been there several times. The most interesting thing is that it's the only venue I know of that offers three different types of concert experience: auditorium-style seating in the balcony, nightclub-style table seating on the main floor, and "mosh pit"-style standing room in a big space right in front of the stage. When totally full the place holds 400-500 people.

Oscar: Thanks for your kind words. I believe HTD Records when out of business not long after they released those two CDs. Not sure why - we lost touch and then the next time I tried to get in contact with them, they were nowhere to be found. Friday Music seems to be doing much the same thing these days regarding Renaissance.
