Looking back on Blackmore’s Night’s catalog, this happens to remain at the top of their best releases, and it is surely a fan favorite.

Past Times With Good Company
Review by Gary Hill
Ritchie Blackmore is certainly best known for his work in hard rocking bands Deep Purple and Rainbow. He has been showing a different face with his new band Blackmore's Night.

Secret Voyage
Review by Gary Hill
Blackmore’s Night might not be on the radar in terms of pop culture, but they’ve certainly built a well-deserved following of those “in the know.”

Shadow Of The Moon
Review by Larry Toering
This is the first Blackmore's Night release, and when it came out it didn't seem as if the project would go as far as it did.

To the Moon and Back - 20 Years and Beyond

Here is a recipe for a classic holiday album: Add one guitar legend to an angelic voiced alto singer, mix with a backing band of Renaissance musicians, sprinkle with a generous amount of holiday cheer and you will yield a dozen delicious Christmas treats.

Blackmore's Night - Paris Moon DVD
Review by Greg Olma
I have to admit that I am as guilty as anyone when it comes to wishing that Ritchie Blackmore would grab onto a Stratocaster and let rip. But like all things musical, we have to accept where the artist is going and what they are trying to say to us.
