Renaissance Academy Of Music 1974 on Limited Edition 2LP
Academy of Music 1974 documents an astonishing live performance from the UK progressive rock legends Renaissance at the height of their career. With beguiling vocalist and ingenue Annie Haslam front and center, the concert showcases material from the band's latest release at the time, fourth album Ashes Are Burning. Unlike other prog-rock groups, Renaissance forwent much of technology in favor of acoustic instruments and orchestral arrangements. Electric guitars and synthesizers were seldom used, giving the band's music more of a symphonic sound. Limited edition 2LP-set.
