Stunning vocals and superb musicianship were the hallmarks of Renaissance, the supreme art rock band of the Seventies. With Annie Haslam as lead vocalist, the group had a great advantage over most other bands whose singers lacked her finesse and purity of tone. "Turn Of The Cards" was the their fifth album and was first released in 1974. The band?s superb vocal harmonies and top class musicianship is in evidence on this six track collection of distinctive songs. Many connoisseurs regard such extended works as "Running Hard" and the "Mother Russi"? suite to be among their finest works and John Tout?s rhapsodic piano playing is another highlight of this pearl of an album. This edition comes in mini LP vinyl replica packaging with the original artwork, including a booklet with authoritative and extensive liner notes by respected author and journalist Chris Welch.

"My collection of Renaissance CDs for some reason has never included Turn of the Cards. It was a bad omission. Not instantly appealing, Turn of the Cards needs a few plays to show its true quality. Then it becomes quite rivetting, with Annie Haslam's control over some very difficult melodies really amazing. The tracks are cleverly arranged with a big intro and a huge finale. Not quite my favorite Renaissance CD, but certainly a must have - even if I am 35 years late.
I bought this from an Amazion recommended supplier who did a great job."
