This is the second album of themes from famous Hollywood films as well as pop classics in the film music genre, performed in spectacular hi-res surround sound by this Bavarian orchestra. (…) Great fun for movie music/hi-res surround fans!" 4/5 ~audiophile-audition
It’s always a great thing seeing a young, or let’s call them contemporary, band paying tribute to a band that was directly involved in making history. In the case of Australian progsters Therein, this task was quite challenging, considering that their choice was to “cover” one of Rock’s all-time favourite gems — British institution called Pink Floyd. To have things even more spiced up, what Therein made on, simply titled, Pink Floyd Sessions was doing a single-track medley of different Pink Floyd tunes. That’s something that required a lot of planning, arranging and thinking, what I am sure the Australians did. The pieces that comprise the almost 25-minute medley include “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,” “Time,” “Great Gig in the Sky,” “Money,” “Dogs,” and “Is There Anybody Out There?”
Stereo 24/96 version of Meddle hidden on the Early Years box set.The Early Years 1965 - 1972 is a comprehensive 27-disc boxset that sees Pink Floyd delve into their vast music archive to produce a deluxe package that includes 7 individual book-style volumes, featuring much previously unreleased material. The Early Years box set contains unreleased tracks, BBC Radio Sessions, remixes, outtakes and alternative versions over an incredible 11 hours, 45 mins of audio (made up of 130+ tracks) and live and TV performance in over 14 hours of audio-visual material.
Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
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.
