The LIVE STUDIO CONCERT in PHILADELPHIA 1997 was recorded and produced at Philadelphia’s Sonic Studios in standard definition in original 4:3 aspect ratio and Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo. It features three Renaissance songs: “Carpet of The Sun,” “The Young Prince and Princess,” and “Captive Heart.”

The DVD features Annie's songwriting skills in collaboration with Tony Visconti on “What He Seeks” and “Pool of Tears,” Rave Tesar on “Sleepless Mother,” and David Biglin on “Summon the Angels” and “Seashell Eyes.” Tony produced her 1994 BLESSING IN DISGUISE CD. 

In addition to an audio and video crew, Annie filmed some of the experience with her own video camera, (“The Haslam-Cam”)   Band members were keyboardist Rave Tesar, singer/guitarist/keyboardist Davd Biglin and drummer Joe Goldberger.  She remembers, “They played flawlessly and sounded more like 6 than 3 musicians.  It was exhilarating; each song had the audience singing along." 

Ordering the standard DVD (NTSC all-region and plays on modern PAL DVD players) for $19.99 includes an autograph from Annie, plus an immediate digital download of the audio tracks.  The package includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality downloads in MP3 and FLAC formats.
