Renaissance - A Symphonic Journey DVD/2-CD Set
Review by Gary Hill

These collections that have both video and audio discs sometimes present a challenge at MSJ. The ones that seem to be CD first with bonus video go under the CD reviews while ones like this that seem to be more based around a video with CDs as extras go under the video reviews.

Renaissance - Academy of Music
Review by G. W. Hill

This live album is quite good. It does seem like it started life as a bootleg, though. For that reason there are a few issues here and there with crowd noise that’s a bit too loud and localized. Still, to have a live recording of this historic concert is great. Not only do Renaissance play this gig with an orchestra, but Andy Powell of Wishbone Ash guests on one track. The sound is quite good here, particularly if it was (as it sounds like it was) an audio recorded bootleg.

Renaissance - Novella
Review by Steve Alspach
Renaissance was a unique band, blending a rare combination of acoustic rock and classical music into a never-duplicated result. Like many others, I was a Renaissance fan in the 70s.

Renaissance - Prologue
Review by G. W. Hill

This early Renaissance disc has a lot of the folky progressive rock that was a trademark of the band at times.

Renaissance - Scheherazade and Other Stories
Review by Gary Hill
Renaissance is a band that I never really followed closely, but always really enjoyed. In many ways I've always felt that they are a lot like Yes, but rather than focusing on the harder rocking styles, they were more interested in acoustic and organic sounds.

Renaissance - Song of Scheherazade
Review by Bill Knispel
Only one thing has been missing over the years for devoted fans of Renaissance, that band combining rock and classical music more completely and seamlessly than almost any other band in progressive music…a video document of the classic band (Annie Haslam, Michael Dunford, John Tout, Terrence Sullivan and Jon Camp) live in concert.
