5 stars I am going to make this short and sweet. I was there for this show. For the person who says they did not show much stage presense you must have not been to one of the shows. Yes I agree when they played live it was almost to perfection. However if you have the album or CD and listen to Ocean Gypsy all is not perfect. Towards the end of the song there is about 3-6 seconds of feedback from the on stage monitors. Yes they were a great band to see live. I first saw them at a club called My Fathers Place in Roslyn Long Island. It was the first time this incarnation of the band ever played in the states. They were the opening act to JF Murphy and Salt. By the time they started and ended their set I was hooked. Iat that point I could care less about the headliner. I recently saw Annie at the Sellerville 1894 Theatre in Sellerville PA. Along with her was John Tout. It was great to see him again. With John on keys and Annies vocals when I closed my eyes i felt like I was taken back to a time when their music meant so much to me. I only wished that their US lable would have released a CD of this show.

By the way not only did I see them at Carnagie I saw them at the now demolished NY Academy of Music and their show at Radio City Music Hall. I was lucky i guess. I worked for the promoter.

If i had to be stranded on a Desert Island and could only have 10 Albums/CD's with me Ren Live would be in my top 5
