Renaissance

When Keith Relf and Jim McCarty left The Yardbirds in 1968, they added Keith’s sister Jane, bassist Louis Cennamo and ace pianist John Hawken from The Nashville Teens.

The first result of their endeavours was their self-titled 1969 album, containing five psychy songs punctuated with lengthy classical passages. On paper it sounds like a nightmare, but tracks like Innocence and Wanderer have a definite first-time freshness.

Subsequently, there was a period of high turnover of musicians until the “classic” line-up of Annie Haslam, John Tout, Michael Dunford, Jon Camp, and Terry Sullivan was established.
