Biography

The career paths of bands with long and rich histories are akin to fingerprints; no two are identical. No such statement could be more appropriately applicable than to the forty-four year career of British progressive rock pioneers Renaissance.

The band, acclaimed for their unique blending of progressive rock with classical and symphonic influences, can trace its origins back to 1969 ... Read more in Amazon's Renaissance Store

When I heard that Renaissance was getting back together, I was so excited and looked forward to seeing them in concert again.

It is strange how artists previously reviled can become rehabilitated posthumously. Ever since Laura Nyro died from ovarian cancer in 1997, interest in her work has been higher than it was whilst she was alive. Though Nyro's work was too virtuosic and complex to be a favourite with most critics, since her death her late-1960s masterpieces have been re-appraised and are now often viewed as underrated classics.

Around the time of Nyro's overian cancer, Annie Haslam, the frontwoman of Renaissance, suffered breast cancer but recovered so well she still performs in her mid-sixties today. Listening for the first time to Renaissance as a 31-year-old too young to read about them when they were in their prime, it is really startling that their work has not has the same re-evaluation Nyro's classic albums have.

Today, Renaissance are seen as one of the major players in the reviled progressive rock scene of bands like Yes, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Genesis, Gentle Giant and Camel. In fact, although Renaissance did possess the same type of lengthy multi-part suites that are considered a defining feature of prog rock, Renaissance's sound was completely different from the hard rock of Gabriel-era Genesis or the heavily synthesised sounds of 1970s Pink Floyd or Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Both of these types of music were in general very boring. Some of Steve Hackett's solos, for instance, are incredibly long compared to what is expressed in them.

Renaissance was one of my favorite bands of the mid and late 70s. This album, recorded with the New York Philharmonic captured them at the artistic peak of their career and contains much of their best material. Best known as one of the earlier progressive rock bands to combine elements of classical and rock. While bands like Yes and Emerson, Lake & Palmer did the same and leaned more towards the rock side, Renaissance tended to lean more toward the classical side. The highlight of the band was the amazing beautiful voice of Annie Haslam. It has been said that her vocal range covered 5 octaves. Their style of music worked very well with an orchestra, I was lucky to see them perform twice with the Rochester Philharmonic in the late 70s. Their live shows were phenomenal and this recording captures them at their best. The remastered CD is a real treat, and the quality is quite good. It was nice to finally have the CD since my original album from 1976 is showing it's age. One of my favorite albums from one of my favorite bands.

I have been a Reanaissance fan for many years and this is their crowning glory. The ultimate is to hear Annie at the end of "Ashes are Burning". She is so keenly aware of the power of her voice, that she backs away from the mike so as to not blast the eardrums of the audience.

I have seen Renaissance and Annie Haslam live a number of times and this captures the band at their mid 70's peak. Originally this was a double album with 2 of the songs taking up full album sides ("Ashes are Burning" and "Sheherazade".)
In concert, "Prologue" would be sung first to warm up Annie's voice and "Ashes.." could only be sung as the encore as Annie had nothing left after hitting the high notes of this one. There are other live CDs from the band, all are good but in my opinion, this is the best one. 5 Stars.

Among the 'Greatest' Live Recordings ever made for any genre, music at times you can actually feel and now made even better with the remastering. Thanks Renaissnace. It's worth every penny folks.

This is perhaps the signature collection of songs from this wonderful group. They are still performing live in the Pennsylvania area, and if you can get tickets, you will not be dissapointed!

I've been a huge Renaissance fan ever since I listned to this live album "Live at Carnegie Hall" around 1982. I own almost all their albums and CD's. Prologue is their next best album in my opinion, but it is a distant second. Annie Haslam has an incredible voice, so clear, so beautiful, so serene and tranquil at the same time that it transforms one into a state of ecstasy! It is unbelievable how she can consistantly hit the right notes in live performances like this (not taking away any credit from the rest of the band, they are incredibly good as well). Finally on CD! I haven't listenend to this album since my LP player broke down twenty years ago. This CD is going under the Chrismas Tree this year. Can't wait! I'm prbably preaching to the choir, but if any one is new or not sure about this album, buy it, you will have no regrets!
