sounds interesting. Isn't live at Academy of Music already available as a legit release?  
It also seems like the DVD is not actually of a live perfromance. correct, but just a medium for a surround sound release.
Curious about "Everybody needs a friend", an actually unreleased Renaissance track.

Looked a but pricey so its a hard pass from me. As said above the DVD is just a another surround sound only DVD and I've got fed up of with those as I don't have a surround sound system.

Yeah, the most interesting inclusion to me is the unreleased studio track "Everybody needs a friend".

The DVD included seems indeed to be a DVD-Audio disc with the studio album mixed in surround sound.

I don't know if this live recording is already available, that may very well be the case.

I agree 100%. I honestly don't see the point of surround sound mixes of music (as opposed to moves, where I can see the point), and like you I also don't have the equipment to play them. If they offered this as a three disc set without the DVD, I would have preferred it.

It is a bit pricey, yes. But since I already have the previous entries in the series, I have got to have this one as well.

I have a CD of this album, and I think I have the original vinyl somewhere, which I bought about 15 years ago, second hand. It's a good album, certainly in the Rennasiance top 3, but it's not worth owning every re-issue on every available format. I'm not sure any album is, to be frank.

Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Yeah, if I already had the album on CD I would probably not bother with this re-issue. But since I don't have it previously, indeed until recently I had no Renaissance CDs, I'm picking these re-issues up now as they come. I have Prologue, Ashes Are Burning, A Song For All Seasons, and Novella. Pre-ordered Turn Of The Cards.

You have the same Renaissance albums as I have. Smile

I bought Renaissance' Turn of the Cards years ago from Selectadisc in Nottingham, but as soon as I left the store I realised they'd given me the wrong CD. I took it back into the shop and they gave me my money back because they didn't have a replacement copy. It's been an unlucky turn of the cards for me because I still haven't managed to buy the Turn of the Cards album on CD again till this day. Unhappy

probably I'll just wait for the youtube version of the unreleased song!
What's disappointing but not surprising is how few of these unreleased tracks there are from their golden age.  But honestly I think the band spent so much time touring that it was hard enough to come up with 40 mins of music annually, let alone extra cuts.

I really like the re-issues from Esoteric Recordings of various classic bands. When it comes to Renaissance what was surprising was that they have not come in chronological order. They started with Prologue and Ashes Are Burning (which were both single disc, in digipacks), but then they jumped to A Song For All Seasons (which was a three disc set in a clamshell box). Then came Novella (also a three disc set), and now Turn Of The Cards (a four disc set)! What comes next in the series I wonder?
