Do not sell this recording. this was made by a fan for fans share freely, losslessly and gaplessly. comments: Back in these days cassettes were close to $4 a tape, alot of money in 1977 since tickets to shows weren't much more than that, so I often transferred cassette masters to reels, especially when I had use of a nearly brand new Teac reel to reel deck to do the copying. The mikes I've used to record shows vary widely. This one had 1 vocal mike, and one cardoid electret. A strange combo, but it worked out fairly well this time, especially picking up Annie's wonderful singing. This is one torrent where an EQ expert could probably make this sound alot better, so I've refrained from doing any EQ'ing of this recording, because I'm not an EQ expert- at least not yet, I didn't think it needed it anyway, and a bad EQ job is alot worse than none at all. The mike was a pretty good one, better than I've had for many shows that still came out pretty good. There was a nice mood for both sets at this concert, and the crowd enjoyed both, a sunny hot but not unbearable summer afternoon show. No screaming for the headliner during the opening Jean Luc Ponty set. A good time was had by all and the sound was pretty good for both bands. for me it was more like a concert with 2 headline acts and no opener. This was my 1st Renaissance concert, and there would be four more, so I guess you could rightly say they made a nice first impression on me (and second, and third... and so on it goes.) Both sets were very good shows on this afternoon. A rather odd combination it was, but I didn't mind a bit, odd in a good way, the crowd seemed to like both too, just my second time seeing Ponty and 1st recording for two artists I liked alot at this time and still do (from this time).
