Limited 180 gram audiophile vinyl LP pressing. When The Yardbirds broke up in 1968, the surviving members were determined to take a fresh look at their musical aims and ambitions. Singer Keith Relf and drummer/vocalist Jim McCarty decided not to form yet another R&B group and were keen to experiment with a bold new concept called Renaissance. Renaissance, the debut album was first released in 1969 and is built around songs and lyrics composed by Keith and Jim. They teamed up with former Nashville Teens pianist John Hawken, Louis Cennamo (bass) and Keith's sister Jane Relf (vocals and percussion). Extended performances such as 'Kings & Queens' and 'Bullet' with their strong classical themes, can now be seen as the first stirrings of the movement thereafter known as progressive rock.
