Renaissance is the name of the second album by The Association. This was their last album recorded for the Valiant Records label, and was reissued by Warner Bros. Records after the company acquired Valiant. The album peaked at #34 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Although it had no chart toppers like the LPs that came before and after it, two singles reached the Billboard Hot 100 chart. "Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebies" reached #35 in late 1966 and "No Fair At All" peaked at #51 in early 1967.[3]

The single version of "No Fair At All" featured overdubbed vocals by Jim Yester, while early pressings of the LP featured the same track with re-recorded vocals and no overdubs. This was replaced on later copies with the single version.
