Out now via Minstrel Hall Music, with their debut album Shadow Of the Moon having been released some 20 years ago (1997), it was obviously now time to take stock of their catalogue and give their fans a very, very nice gems-all-in-the-same-place treat.
Chock full of a symbiosis of medieval melodies, mystical lyrics and modern musical arrangements, Blackmore and his muse, his wife Candice, have steadfastly stood behind their idea of fusing classical elements and Renaissance music from day one.
Indeed, their many gold awards coupled with a worldwide fan base underline their status as the premiere act in their chosen genre. With this new 2CD set, fans and novices alike can celebrate 20 years of Blackmore's Night.
The first CD contains 13 of the best tracks from their successful albums plus an exciting nine-minute live version of the fan favorite 'Home Again'. Whilst the second CD gives us five never-before-released new versions, two further bonus tracks, five of their favorite instrumental tracks, as well as the current single by Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, 'Land Of Hope And Glory' PLUS a bonus video!
Aside from the known tracks on the first CD, the second CD is where it's going to garner the most attention, one feels. Those aforementioned five never-before-released new versions include 'Moonlight Shadow', 'Somewhere Over The Sea', 'Writing On The Wall', 'Coming Home' and 'Land Of Hope And Glory', with the bonus tracks of both 'I Surrender' and 'Ghost Of John' just adding to the magic of this release for their fans.
