5 stars Do you want to know, how the mastery of live music looks like? Try this double album. As for perfection in music Renaissance was one of the greatest band ever. This live album prove it. If you want best of, this is also a good choice. The vast majority of great Renaissance songs are performed by the group accompanied by the orchestra. The musical performance is so overhelming and amazing that there is no need to say something else. Believe me, this is one of the top five live albums of all time. The highlight is voice of Annie, especially in the last song Ashes are burning where in the last part she alone "played" the guitar solo from studio version by her voice. And after such a performance she's still in the best condition. What a shame for the history of music that she has no status of the best female singer of all time (sorry to all so called MTV stars...). To sum up, one of the most exceptional live albums without one even a little mistake. Five stars and recommended to all.
