No illusion here…don't miss this beauty

If you've even been confused about the two line-ups of Renaissance and how the story played out, you need to look no further than our band page here which has a forum thread called "A Renaissance confusion" written by Joolz which spells out this complete history in full detail. This first version of the band which produced the first two albums is considered somewhat illegitimate by some fans of the famous second line-up. In a way, the feel of the albums is bit like that of the Yes discography, where those first two Yes albums are often overlooked by casual fans. And like those first two Yes albums, the first two Renaissance albums stand on their own, delivering music that by all means should appeal to Haslam-era fans and symphonic fans in general.

Downtempo, Disco

Follow up album to the first Sketches from an Island LP that came out back in 2014. International Feel boss Mark Barrott returns with nine new tracks of polyrhythmic new school Balearic, and just in time for the heart of summer too. Slide guitar, synth melodies, field recordings and soft percussion gel together to create a personable soundtrack to Mr. Barrott’s daily wanderings over on the cosmic island; “I am also telling stories of everyday life in Ibiza, soundtracking my life here through local field recordings, dusty synths, some African percussion and a bit of slide guitar. This music isn’t about finding the latest trends in the way other dance music is, it’s a lot more like folk music, taking mood, atmosphere and composition and threading stories around that framework."

Excellent addition to any prog-rock music collection.
Think of Illusion, think of Renaissance. The history of the two bands is very much intertwined, and while the band bearing the name Renaissance came out on top in terms of success and longevity, the quality of Illusion's output should not be underestimated.

Tiny Island was formed by Göran Wennerbrandt in 1989, but on their cooperation with Eric Bibb in 1993 went under the name of "Needed Time" with basically the same members. During the years 1994-1998 either Göran Wennerbrandt or the whole band toured regularly with Eric Bibb in both Europe and Canada. On this, Tiny Island debut album they play instrumental music with ingredients from near and far – warm island breezes, a trace of oriental spice and Nordic mood. All the music has been composed by the members of the band with exception of one track by Taj Mahal.

Good band which sounds pretty much canterbury like. The band format includes keys, sax, drums and vocals. The biggest influence for ISLAND definitely seems to be VdGG, and the band certainly approaches progressive rock from the darker end of the spectrum. Sometimes the influence of GENTLE GIANT gets very clear in their music.
