Renaissance The BBC Sessions 1975-1978

The BBC Sessions is a live album by Rennaissance recorded by the BBC.

It covers the period from 1975 to 1978 when prog rock was no longer fashionable but this is proof that there was still interesting music to be made. It’s the vocals of Annie Haslam that have helped me find a place for the band in my album collection.
