Renaissance was at the peak of its popularity when this series of superb concerts was televised and broadcast on TV and radio by the BBC in the 1970s. Blending melodic rock with classical music, and featuring the outstanding voice of Annie Haslam, the band performed at its inspirational best at these shows, now available on this DVD+3CD package.
Classic songs from their finest albums, such as ‘Ashes Are Burning’ and ‘Turn Of the Cards’ are spotlighted over four discs, including the film of a rare BBC’s ‘Sight & Sound - In Concert’ live show from the Golders Green Hippodrome, London on 8th January, 1977.
