Stay Far Away

"I bought this Disc in good faith at a retailer in town and was absolutely shocked when I played it for the first time. To say I felt scammed is an understatement. They did everything right on the marketing end to pull you in then present you with lame versions of the classic Renaissance but without the voice of God herself - Annie. Nowhere is it mentioned you are getting an understudy and re-workings of the originals. I will be sure to check Amazon's reviews before I make any purchase again. Not that spending money on a disc that I will never listen to again is tragic, but it is the principle of misrepresentation that has left me angered."
This is a scam !!!

"If you are not a dedicated follower of the music scene, you may be deceived like me, beware! This is NOT Renaissance but "M.Dunford's Renaissance". Not all retailers mention it, however. Note the apparently deliberately chosen album name plus the well known classical tracks, and you may be tempted that this is a nice compilation. It isn't. Annie isn't on board and most tracks are mediocre. The classical tracks, though their new arrangements are fine, cannot save the album. Cheap tricks for capitalizing on the wonderful legacy of Renaissance! Go buy one of the old albums instead of this one, you will not regret."
This may NOT be what you are expecting - BUT...

"IF you buy Renaissance to hear the vocal artistry of Annie Haslam, this CD is not for you. She's been replaced by Stephanie Adlington who is a very talented singer, just different. She's got all the passion of Annie, just not the strength or range. Dunford is at the top of his form. Old time fans will enjoy the new scoring on the classic tracks.This group has been in transition since they were the Yardbirds in '69. This is the latest incarnation."
