Good news, will check it out... last one of theirs I bought was Ghost of a Rose.

Hi Mac. Yeah, I`ve stuck with them though they seem to release one good followed by one not-so-good which has gone on for quite awhile now. You mentioned `Ghost Of A Rose` and if I`m honest that was probably the last good album  that seemed to bring to a close their early `classic` period. Since then I`d recommend a listen to this latest one and also `Secret Voyage` which I have on double vinyl as well as cd. All the best!

Hi,

Just listened to Dancer at the Moon... definite improvement on prev album.

Secret Voyage pretty good too, but spoilt by awful version of "Can't help falling in love"

Still think "Under a violet moon" is their best work

When they first came on the scene they were a breath of fresh air, but after the release of "Ghost of a Rose" it all started to sound a bit too samey, which to be fair, whith their kind of genre, it's inevitable... glad they've returned to form with this latest release though, will be going on my wish list.

Cheers

Mac

Hi Mac,

Glad you liked it and sorry for not warning you about `Can`t Help Falling...`! As you know they do covers on every album and some work better than others!

I think most fans tend to think of `Under a violet moon`/`Shadow of the moon`/Ghost of a rose` as the best three albums. I`m very fond of your favourite but mine is still `Shadow of the moon`. As you say they were at first a breath of fresh air and `Shadow` actually inspired me to listen to more folk based music which I shall be eternally grateful for as it`s become my favourite genre. They have become a bit samey so when I first listened to `Dancer` I didn`t get my hopes up too much which turned out to be a good idea as I was pleasantly surprised. Thing is, they release these albums pretty close together. I`d prefer it if they made half as many that were twice as good!

By the way I saw them on the `Under a violet moon` tour, some years ago now, where I hired a suitable costume to get into the spirit of things! It was a memorable gig for two reasons. Firstly, I met them briefly backstage at the end of the gig and got an autograph. Secondly, the support band were Mostly Autumn who became one of my favourite bands of all time. So, all in all, I guess I have a lot to thank Blackmore`s Night for.

All the best
