Illusion (CD)
Esoteric Recordings follow the successful reissues of the first two RENAISSANCE albums with the remastered edition of this classic second and final album by ILLUSION. Featuring original RENAISSANCE members JANE RELF (Vocals), JIM McCARTY (Vocals, Guitar, Percussion), JOHN HAWKEN (Keyboards) and LOUIS CENNAMO (Bass), ILLUSION came together in 1976 following the death of original RENAISSANCE vocalist KEITH RELF (originally vocalist with The Yardbirds). Recruiting Lead Guitarist JOHN KNIGHTSBRIDGE and drummer and percussionist EDDIE McNEIL, the band assumed the name of ILLUSION (taken from the title of the second Renaissance album) and signed to Island Records. Their debut album was an updated version of the classical and folk inspired Progressive Rock that had been explored on the first two Renaissance albums. Well received, this was followed by the release of "ILLUSION" in 1978. Produced by former Yardbird PAUL SAMWELL SMITH, the album was as fine as its predecessor, featuring such material as 'MADONNA BLUE', 'WINGS ACROSS THE SEA' and 'THE REVOLUTIONARY'. Unavailable officially on CD for many years, this Esoteric Recordings reissue is newly re-mastered and restores the original album artwork and features a new essay.
