I lived in the US until 1978 and never saw a copy. I always assumed it was import only, but Discogs reveals Elektra repressed and reissued their Renaissance album in competition with Sire, the later US label, several times.

Not as good at all.

In fact, to my ears it sounds like a hesitant debut, soon to be topped by the album we did this evening. If that makes sense.

I don’t like it



All music:

The history of Renaissance is essentially the history of two separate groups, rather similar to the two phases of the Moody Blues or the Drifters. The original group was founded in 1969 by ex-Yardbirds members Keith Relf and Jim McCarty as a sort of progressive folk-rock band, who recorded two albums (of which only the first, self-titled LP came out in America, on Elektra Records) but never quite made it, despite some success on England's campus circuit.

Isotope was a British jazz rock band, fronted by the guitarist Gary Boyle

I recall buying their three albums on vinyl at the time:

Isotope
Illusion
Deep End


I also bought a Gary Boyle solo album- Electric Glide - well worth a listen

Anyway, Isotope - a taster:
