4 stars Volume 2 of the two part compilation was directed to the last 3 studio albums of the 1970s. It has several essential Renaissance songs - "Can you hear me", "Song for All Seasons" and "Midas Man". The bonus is actually indispensable, and the one Renaissance track that all prog fans must hear whether they are fans of the style or not, the 24 minute version of "Ashes are Burning" from "Live at Carnegie Hall". Your other choice is to pick this one up from the original album of the show, and buy "Novella" and "A Song for All Seasons" which contain several more awesome songs. It gets a slight edge over Volume 1 because it leaves out fewer classics. Recommended if you don't want the whole discography.
