[ad_1] The band was founded by vocalist Keith Relf and drummer Jim McCarty, formerly of the Yardbirds; along with John Hawken, Louis Cennamo and Relf’s sister Jane. They intended to put “something together with more of a classical influence”. Renaissance released their self-titled debut album in 1969, but fell apart during the sessions for their follow-up, Illusion (1971). New musicians were brought in to complete the record, and Renaissance was kept active through a period of fluctuating personnel until none of the original lineup remained, though McCarty continued providing compositions for the band to record for several more years. By 1972, a stable lineup consisting of Annie Haslam, Michael Dunford, John Tout, Jon Camp, and Terry Sullivan solidified. They were assisted with lyrics on many songs from Cornish poet Betty Thatcher-Newsinger. This live recording was captured at their creative peak in 1978 at the historic Capitol Theater in Passaic, New Jersey and is more than 2 hours long.
