Stegzy's Music Project

A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

#129 – BBC Sessions 1975-1978 – Renaissance

Renaissance - BBC Sessions BBC Sessions 1975 – 1978 – Renaissance

The third and final BBC sessions album in my collection. This time, Renaissance step up to the microphone.

We’ve seen Annie Haslam and her pals on this project before. This album highlights how popular Renaissance were at their time. Which only adds to the confusion as to why I had never heard of them until I was in my 30s. It was as if they never received any radio airtime during the 80s and 90s to wipe them from collective consciousness.

This is possibly my second favourite Renaissance compilation album. It’s a good showcase of the wide range of talent and output of the band especially to new listeners.

#128 – BBC Sessions – The Who

BBC Sessions - The WhoBBC Sessions – The Who
Roger Daltrey and his mates perform a variety of their hits on the radio during their peak then release this album some decades later in an effort to boost their pensions.

Most of the classics and favourites are here as are some covers and alternate versions. Missing is Pinball Wizard.

No idea why I have it. Possibly I downloaded it when going through a phase. Or possibly I got it for or from a friend.
