Scheherazade and Other Stories is the sixth studio album by the English progressive rock band Renaissance, released in 1975. Some critics consider it their best album, although others prefer earlier albums.

Scheherazade And Other Stories is a music studio album recording by RENAISSANCE (Symphonic Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1975 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Scheherazade and Other Stories by Renaissance (2014-07-29) Audio Fidelity. Scheherazade & Other Stories Import 2002.

The Other Stories part of the album is essentially the first side of the original LP, starting with one of Renaissance’s best songs, Trip To The Fair. Unlike many of the progressive rock bands classified as symphonic rock, Renaissance achieved the symphonic aspect of their music by focusing on acoustic sounds. The band did not use electric guitars and a large part of the keyboard work is played on a piano. Even a major production as Scheherazade and Other Stories only scratched the top 100 Billboard LP chart. Still, in the second part of the 1970s they were able to generate a decent following in the US with a highlight of recording the full Scheherazade song cycle. This time they performed it live with the New York Philharmonic orchestra conducted by Tony Cox, at Carnegie Hall.

The "Song of Scheherazade," really a suite for the group supported by the London Symphony Orchestra and a chorus, started with guitarist-composer Michael Dunford, who had a personal fascination with the medieval literary work Tales of 1,001 Arabian Nights, and was realized by Dunford and his composing partner Betty Thatcher, with bassist Jon Camp and pianist John Tout.

The one I own (bought around 76/77) has had a "little" manufacture problem : side two is definitely NOT Renaissance. Some kind of "funky" thing totally unknown to me and which runs at 45 RPM. So, no Schererazade on this record for me.
