Renaissance A Song For All Seasons Remastered and expanded box
Remastered and expanded edition of the classic Renaissance studio album from 1978 featuring 15 bonus tracks.
 
Working with producer David Hentschel (who had recently produced A Trick of the Tail and Wind And Wuthering for Genesis), the material on A Song For All Seasons contained some of the most carefully crafted and well-recorded work of the band’s career. 
 
Flying in the face of the prevailing musical fashions, the album was the band’s most successful and remains one of its best-loved works.
 
This expanded edition includes a BBC Radio session from August 1978 and an entire concert recorded at the Tower Theater in Philadelphia on 4th December 1978.
 
3CD in clamshell box. Also contains an illustrated booklet with a reproduction of the band’s 1978 US tour programme and an essay. The set also includes a reproduction of the original album poster given away with the initial pressing of the album.
