Re: COTM - 81 - Michael Dunford
The playlist for today's tribute to Michael is going to be the first 3 albums from Renaissance beginning with his first contribution. That is: Ashes Are Burning, Turn of the Cards and Scheherazade and Other Stories.
While Annie Haslam joined with the 3rd album under the Renaissance banner, Prologue, Michael didn't join until Ashes Are Burning. Although - he was a guest artist on Illusion, adding guitar to the cut Mr. Pine.
You will hear a couple of the tracks are from a live version - either the Carnagie Hall or 2011 Tour. I have also tossed in the Mystic and the Muse EP they released in 2010. That debuted at RosFest that year and I was fortunate enough to have been there.
Renaissance was to have come to Atlanta but it was postponed due to an injury to Annie. I am saddened that people will not get the chance to feel the spirit of Renaissance with Michael. He was not a man of many words and is very, very shy. But his musical gifts speak plenty loud enough for him. Rest In Peace, my friend.
is a worn pun!
