Blackmore's Night has been the purveyor of "Renaissance Rock" for ten years now, and shows no signs of slowing down. From America, to Japan, the UK, Germany, and Eastern Europe, Ritchie Blackmore, Candice Night, and their fellow minstrels have been filling the night air with lovely music, new and old, original and borrowed, for their appreciative fans, and for all others, too. It is difficult to convey to the uninitiated what feelings a Blackmore's Night concert imparts to dyed-in-the-wool fans such as myself.... the soaring vocals, the exquisite guitar mastery, the love and passion that is infused into each note, all lending to camaraderie, good cheer, good humor, and an all-around joie de vivre that is poured out like sparkling wine at each BN show.
Paris Moon is no exception to BN's earlier labors of love. This DVD and CD combination was recorded in Paris, France, in late 2006. BN's earlier two-DVD release, Castles and Dreams, gave an inside glance at their enchanting castle concerts in Germany, with imposing walls and natural twilight furnishing the backdrop to their magical performance. I submit to you that Paris Moon is the "flip side" of Castles and Dreams. Shot in a lovely theater, Paris Moon's 20 DVD tracks are a musical tour de force...Read more ›
I must admit that, when I first saw the track listing and so on, without having viewed the DVD yet, I thought Ritchie and Co. were merely "biding time" until another substantive release was forthcoming (and, yes, I also felt, again without having seen the DVD yet, that "Castles & Dreams" HAD to be the better of the two, was more definitive, and, frankly, "why bother"?). I was wrong. Get this asap!
Many bands seem to do great in the studio but you hear their live work and it's, well, nothing short of awful. Blackmore's Night is just the opposite. Candace's vocals are simply amazing, no matter how they are recorded. And their talented Musicians get plenty of 'show off' time too. It's like they play 'Studio Quality' on the road, not in that they are exactly identical. No. They are different but just as good as the originals. Just Great song selection, excellent quality of music and this DVD goes by before you even realize it. Because of this DVD, I now know I want to see this band play 'Live'.
Sorry, not very good at writing reviews, but if you like Blackmore's Night, and want to hear their Live work, don't hesitate!
MAC Owners, Please Note! I originally thought I had a defective DVD, the sound was wavy and going loud and quiet nonstop. Was driving me crazy. But I found the solution. In your DVD Player Preferences, go to the Disc Setup tab, and check the box that says "Disable Dolby dynamic range compression". Your problems will be solved.
