Renaissance - Kings and Queens DVD
Who would have thought that something like this would exist? This is all the known very early footage of the group in superb quality (for the time period), including the very early and under-known original incarnation of the band that featured Jane and Keith Relf, as well as the previously unknown incarnation also featured that is the very short-lived, missing link line-up between the Relf-led version of the band and the better known version fronted by Annie Haslam. 40' of fascinating history and great, unknown proto-progressive music.
"This DVD features two different line ups of Renaissance. The first two clips come from German TV and feature the original line up performing the tracks Kings And Queens and Island. These are the only known performances captured on film of the original line up performing live. The second piece of footage is even rarer in that it was originally thought that this footage was lost. The footage provides the link between the original line up of Renaissance and the later more successful line-up of the mid to late seventies, and features from a line up that lasted a mere three months. This time the band now feature no original members but two members that would go onto bigger fame in the seventies. John Tout is featured on keyboards and guitarist Mike Dunford play alongside vocalists Terry Crowe and Binky Cullom, bassist Neil Korner and drummer Terry Slade. The band perform Kings and Queens from the first Renaissance album and also tracks from the second Renaissance album Illusion (Golden Threads, Mr Pine and Face of Yesterday). There is also a song never officially recorded by Renaissance, Widdicombe Fair, making this release a real find for the large and dedicated Renaissance fan base."
