BLACKMORE'S NIGHT, the renaissance-inspired rock band formed by Ritchie Blackmore and his wife Candice Night, will release a live recording, "A Knight In York", on DVD, Blu-ray, CD and 3-LP set (limited edtion) in late June/early July.

"A Knight In York" was filmed and recorded during BLACKMORE'S NIGHT's British tour at York Opera House on September 30, 2011.

BLACKMORE'S NIGHT's latest album, "Autumn Sky", came out in 2010.

In addition to being known for its unique sound combining traditional instruments, guitars and Candice's enchanting lyrics and vocals, BLACKMORE'S NIGHT is also known for its fabulous live shows, many of which have been performed at castles and other exceptional venues that add to the mystique and warmth of its performance.

Recorded during Candice's pregnancy, Candice and Ritchie dedicated the "Autumn Sky" album to their daughter Autumn Esmerelda Blackmore.

Ritchie, 67, and Candice, 41, were married on October 5, 2008 at a small gathering of friends and family at Castle on the Hudson in Tarrytown, New York.

That is a VERY cool place... 8)

There are a couple of really cool old castles on the Hudson.

There are many, particularly in the northeast and Florida.

St. Augustine has an awesome old castle/fort right on the water... There are dozens that were built in the 1700s in the Hudson Valley, and a few in New England as well.

In fact, I pointed a couple out to Suzi on the ride up to Cold Spring... including one that sits in ruins on a small island just off the eastern shore of the Hudson. To this day, I still have no idea what its real name is... I've only ever heard it referred to as "Dick's Castle."

The Hudson Valley and the Catskills are awesome for hiking and sight-seeing. A lot of historic sites up there, especially from the Revolution. You could spend days in the area of West Point alone... and the ubiquitous blue and yellow historical markers are literally everywhere you look...

"George Washington stopped here to take a whiz under this oak tree in the winter of 1777. Watch your step." :gig:

I once lived in a house in Peekskill that had a historical marker in front of it. The house stood was well over 100 years old and stood on the site of a cabin where George Washington met with a French general to discuss strategy on how to defend strategic locations along the Hudson.

Peekskill sits on an overlook on the eastern side of the Hudson. Part of the defenses were a series of battlements where they ran the chains across the river to prevent the advance of the British fleet that were attempting to attack defensive positions on either side of the river and support their troops as they marched north towards Beacon and Albany.

Suzi, her friend Lori and I actually stopped at a "scenic" overlook near the Bear Mountain Bridge that was used as a watch station during the Revolution.

I doubt that many of the people that live up there now know or really appreciate the history of the region, but I absolutely love that stuff. It's one thing to read about the American Revolution in the history books. It's quite another to stand on those sites and see the fortresses and walls up close and personal.

PS ~ So much for talking about Richie Blackmore, eh? Oh well, this is a lot more interesting anyway... at least to me anyway. :P

"Blackmore's Night - The Beginning" is a documentation about the early period of a musical legend.

In the lavish velvet-box you will find the first two BLACKMORE'S NIGHT albums "Shadow Of The Moon" and "Under A Violet Moon" as well as rare video footage of their early tours "Live In Germany 1997-1998" and "Under A Violet Moon - Castle Tour 2000". Available for the first time on DVD and only in the "The Beginning" box.

The footage from various concerts from the "Shadow Of The Moon" and "Under A Violet Moon" tours is enriched by interviews with Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night, as well as backstage footage, rehearsal footage and medieval fight shows.

"We live the music," says Ritchie Blackmore, confirming the impression that this documentation gives every second — BLACKMORE'S NIGHT is authentic. The enthusiasm of the musicians captivates the audience and takes them along on a journey through the past. Some of the DVD tracks go from the living room rehearsals to the stage and are impressive proof that the compositions function wonderfully as intimate acoustic versions, as well as with the full band on the big stage.

BLACKMORE'S NIGHT "The Beginning" is a very special release, not only for fans and collectors, for nostalgic or the medieval curious, but for any lover of beautiful timeless music. This extraordinary box provides the owner not only two DVDs with a delightful, interesting and entertaining performances plus two original studio albums of fantastic music, but rather with it is a ticket out of the dreary day to day life, a way to leave everything behind, to relax the soul for a few hours.

I have to admit, I've been considering buying something from Blackmore's Night, just to give it a listen for myself... I can't imagine "Renaissance"-style music having a substantial market in this day and age... but frankly, somebody's gotta be buying it consistently for them to keep recording all this stuff.
