Had to put it up LG... Such a great track.
Quite like Black Flame, maybe I should listen to them more deeply.
Great Band !
Mother Russia, what a beautiful symphonic track!
^^Been ages since I listened to any Renaissance albums, have to remedy that.
I've see quite a few in my 2nd hand vinyl shops, but they didn't look in very good shape so I passed.
Funnily enough I have not come across any of their albums in my local record shop, which is weird.
I have found out their music only recently, but it has been love at first sight!
I really like their album named "Prologue" and also the voice of Annie Haslam.
I love this song by them:
but I also like "Mother Russia" and the "Vultures fly high"
I prefer the original Renaissance, with former Yardbirds, Keith Relf and Jim McCarty, to the later Annie Haslam/Jon Camp version. Illusion, really the original band without Keith Relf, are also very good. Keith Relf rehearsed with Illusion, but was electrocuted by a guitar that was improperly earthed.
^^I think Annie's voice is what made Renaissance special, at least for me it does.
There are not a lot of female singers I enjoy listening, but for me in prog their voices fit perfectly.
