5 stars MAGICAL is the only word I can find for this album. If ever I could have bene there! Renaissance were absolute masters in combining classical music and pop music, illustrating the once-common name "symphonic rock" in a never compassed way. The musicianship is good, albeit not as great as, for instance, Yes of Genesis by that time. But the interplay between Annie Haslams heavenly voice, the acoustic guitar, piano, bass guitar and the orchestra really gives the concert a magic spell. The lucky bastards who have been there must have had an evening never to forget. There's no flaw on the album, not a minute too much. It is simply a great, great record.
