I'll help Jean Marie here
 
Renaissance mkI line-up released the Renaissance and Illusion albums from 1970 & 1971and includes the ex-yarbirds Relf, McCarty and Hawken on keys
 
The Renaissance II line-up started with Prologue and lasted until Camera Camera (roughly 73-83), includes Dunford , Haslam and Tout....
 
 
Illusion is the first line-up returning to business for two album in 77-78

Hi,
 
Renaissance 1 in this case was the one that had Keith Relf and his wife ... which also had 2 very nice albums.?
 
Renaissance 2 would be the Annie Haslam version?
 
Not sure I want to compare the two. The first Renaissance had some very nice things that pretty much defined what the next version of the band was going to be and became. The vocals and the design and concept of the second band was much better defined than the first edition that was trying to make its own name and definition when Keith was electrocuted on stage and died -- which killed that version of the band, which tells you that it was more of a vision and idea from that person than anything else.
 
Can I suggest that you kill this poll and start again? ... I have my doubts that anyone has heard the original Renaissance and been able to make a fair determination on your poll. And the second band, the first album is named Prologue, which has a magnificent introduction to Annie's voice and ability.

Musically not a whole lot to separate the three, though I'd still argue for Ren 2 what with Trip to the Fair and Touching Once but in any case, Ren 2 had Annie Haslam and that seals the issue.

Keith married his SISTER! Shocked Man, they kept that quiet. Tongue
 
Keith was at home when he was killed, not on stage, this was while he was reforming the third version of the band, called Illusion after their 2nd album, the project continued after his death and released three four albums under the name Illusion with Jane on vocals.
 
I think you are confusing him with Les Harvey of Stone The Crows who died on stage after being electrocuted by a live microphone.
 
 
/edit: correction - I forgot that Illusion's 2nd album was also called Illusion making it four albums not three; so in summary - one band called Illusion and two albums called Illusion.
