RENAISSANCE – RUNNING HARD [LIVE AT CARNEGIE HALL, 1976]

Το αριστούργημα των Renaissance σε ζωντανή απόδοση από το live άλμπουμ τους – η στούντιο βερσιόν βρίσκεται στο Turn Of The Cards [1974].
Ένα από τα πιο μουσικά γκρουπ που πέρασαν ποτέ από την “σκηνή της ποπ”, με μια σπάνια ερμηνεύτρια στο πρόσωπο της Annie Haslam.

The Renaissance crown jewel, performed live – the studio version is on the Turn Of The Cards album [1974]. One of the most musical groups ever passed from the “pop scene”, with a unique front woman in the face of Annie Haslam.

    WoW! What talent and what a great fusion of styles. They offered a lot to the pop world. Perhaps they offered too, much. The pop world can be a very shallow place, where a painting of a can of soup can be worth a fortune. I’m not criticizing Mr. Warhol, but I’m just thinking Renaissance’s talent may have passed over many heads.
    I never heard of them or their music until now. I love it! In my 20’s, I would not have liked it.

      Renaissance and others of their generation paid the cost of being too intelligent and learned. With the subversion of the Old music industry in the late ’70s – early ’80s [many reasons for that, the beginning of digital era and the MTV phenomenon among them] they found themselves useless. Only few acts from the ’60s & ’70s survived from the ’80s sea change, and they had to compromise big time to do so.
      I was liked this band, and especially their lovely singer’s voice. Thank you Resa!

      PS: in my humble opinion, mr. Warhol was a fraud and an ***hole.

          Of course I did. Warhol had a talent in seeing and hearing things [he didn’t like the young Bowie though – haha…]. But his greatest talent was in the misrepresentation of SEEING and HEARING as MAKING ART. In any case, his approach is nothing but a rumination of Marcel Duchamp’s bullshit in the ’10s & ’20s. Thanks!
