    Esoteric Antenna is pleased to announce the release of 50th Anniversary – Ashes Are Burning – An Anthology Live in Concert, the wonderful new 4 disc CD, DVD and Blu ray set by RENAISSANCE.

    To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the formation of RENAISSANCE, vocalist ANNIE HASLAM and band performed a series of concerts with an orchestra in the USA in October 2019 featuring a set list which included songs which had never been orchestrated or performed with an orchestra before. The most memorable concert took place at the Keswick Theater in Glenside, PA on 12th October 2019.

    This sold-out concert saw the band perform a set which included such classics as CARPET OF THE SUN, OCEAN GYPSY, RUNNING HARD, DAY OF THE DREAMER and A SONG FOR ALL SEASONS and also saw a special guest appearance by Renaissance founder JIM McCARTY who performed on the song ISLAND and the epic closing piece ASHES ARE BURNING. It was a truly magical evening.

    This 4-disc set captures this concert over 2 CDs and a concert film on both DVD and High-Definition Blu ray multi region formats (featuring a stunning 5.1 Surround Sound mix). 50th Anniversary – Ashes Are Burning – An Anthology Live in Concert is a perfect celebration of a legendary and treasured body of music.

    This is the project that was funded on Indiegogo starting back in August 2019, with a projected release of June 2020. That’s probably why it’s not for sale at retail in the US, Canada, etc.? I just got a download link for the audio, but haven’t listened to it yet.

    It shipped recently to Indiegogo supporters. Should have mine by Saturday.

    Mine shipped too. I listened to the audio, or started to anyway. It was difficult. Hoping the state of her voice will be better supported/masked by the presence of visuals.

    Oh, I see Download Codes were sent out in February, but it looks like I didn't receive one. rdclark, can you tell me what the email address is that the code came from, and what was the subject line of the email? Thanks.

    I wouldn't take those odds.

    Would be more interesting without the Blu ray, which to me is completely useless.

    Thanks, looks like I never got the email for some reason. Doesn't really matter since the physical set is arriving today!

    Arrived today. Nice package, CDs, DVD, BD each in its own sleeve inside a CD-size cardboard box, with a booklet.

    Sampled the Blu-ray. Not the train-wreck I was fearing. Some of the playing is a little tentative. Annie's voice is undeniably brittle with age. But in surround it all somehow sounds OK. The audio quality seems very good. I'll have time to watch it all later tonight, I hope.

    Man, the Keswick is a dump. I've been there many times and it always looks bad, but with video lighting and high definition, it's downright embarrassing.

    Oh, I see what you mean. Dear me, she does not sound good...

    I'll be posting my interview with Annie soon. We had an amazing chat that was made all the more exciting by my condo building deciding to briefly test their fire alarm system about 30 seconds after we started. In all my years of listening to Renaissance (since I was a teenager), I never thought I'd have a video of Annie Haslam looking around her room in a panic while I explained a fire alarm was coming from my home, not hers.

    would buy this release, but only want the bul ray.I never seem to bother with the cds if i get a package like this. Would even buy just the DVD if it was sold that way. So will hold off for now.

    Really enjoyed the interview, it must have been fun to do. I am catching up on my Renaissance collection and have just bought the deluxe version of the Carnegie Hall concert. There is a lot of music out there.

    Are you sure ashes weren't burning?

    Don't tell Renaissance, but ashes don't burn. Whatever they used to be already burned.

    When ashes are burning, it's like "turning it up to eleven." There's none more black.
