4 stars Well the representation of the best stuff by Renaissance, passing through a great performance regarding a famous live in Japan, it's the best way to revive the best moments within Annie's long career!!Her warm voice, as well as the contribution of Michael Dunford and Terry Sullivan together once again, help the band to make flourish the symphonic breaks through of the past, whose comparison with three songs extracted from the recent album "Tuscany" cannot be proposed anyway...They have been successfully welcome, even though their pretty melodic pop stuff -produced during her new efforts from the Studio with the collaboration of former keyboardist from Camel -Micky Simmonds- along with the already mentioned old other members - is closer to her solo works ("Ananda" for instance, included here with one song) and not well fitted into this live...disc two is really thrilling, as it contains the "jewels" from "Scheherazade", "Turn of the Cards" and "Ashes Are Burning", this latter represented by the exceptional final title track...essential stuff, as it witnesses their recent comeback to the stage!!
