2 stars The only review for this is two lines long and gives 5 stars, as well as two of the ratings without reviews, and that makes me feel I'm obliged to lay more criticism. Well, in theory this 2-CD collection of RENAISSANCE live at the BBC - dating back to the latter half of the seventies - is fine. The track list is rather impressive per se. But when the sound quality is pretty low (a sort of raw and hollow recording), I'm myself not very pleased, no matter how memorable the gigs might have been originally. The official live (double-LP) release Renaissance at Carnegie Hall has much better sound quality. It came before Novella and Songs For All Seasons, which are lovely albums IMHO, while this BBC compilation includes some great tracks from these albums. But still that doesn't make this recommendable. Also the leaflet looks rather cheapy. It's much wiser to get the best studio albums of RENAISSANCE if you're newcomer to their beautiful symphonic prog graced by the golden throat of Annie Haslam.
