Their debut album, 'Shadow Of the Moon', was released 20 years ago, in May 1997. Since then, Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple, Rainbow) and his muse – and meanwhile wife – Candice Night have entertained their loyal fans with a symbiosis of medieval melodies, mystical lyrics and modern musical arrangements. Their idea of fusing classical elements and Renaissance music with the 'here and now' is as impressive today as it was in 1997. Their many gold awards coupled with a worldwide fan base underline their status as the premiere act in their chosen genre. With this 2 CD set in a 'brilliant box' jewel case, fans and novices alike can celebrate 20 years of Blackmore's Night. CD1 contains 13 of the best tracks from their successful albums plus an exciting 9-minute live version of the fan favourite 'Home Again'. CD2 boasts 5 never before released new versions, 2 further bonus tracks, 5 of their favourite instrumental tracks, as well as the current digital only single by Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, 'Land Of Hope And Glory' and a bonus video!
