Illusion - Illusion (CD)
Regular price €13,90
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.
