5.0 out of 5 stars Great classic live album from Renaissance, October 11, 2009
This review is from: Live At Carnegie Hall-The Deluxe Anniversary Edition (Audio CD)
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.

Not only was it said her range was five octaves, she demonstrated it on the Mike Douglas show. Incredible.
