Renaissance is an AMAZING band!
Granted, they never received much airplay, simply because their songs were far too long for commercial radio stations to justify. But they produced some of the most brilliant music ever.
-Give a listen to their 2001 'Live from Japan' CD. It's spectacular!

One of my favorite art-rock bands!

Didn't Jim McCarty & Keith Relf from The Yardbirds found Renaissance?

I just downloaded a song by them called "Carpet of the Sun", which isn't too bad. They've been described as the 60's equivalent of Dead Can Dance. Lots of Medeival progressions and instrumentations...

Posted by Gitarzan on Thursday, 03.12.09 @ 18:23pm're absolutely right about the former members of the Yardbirds forming Renaissance.

Yeah, pretty incredible that Renaissance is in the same "family tree" as Led Zeppelin.

You're not kidding there! It kinda reminds me of the difference in Blackmore's Night as opposed to Deep Purple.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
