    The continued, repeated chart success of Blackmore’s Night speaks for itself, despite the nay-sayers.

    This is dismal and depressing like the last ten years of ‘Deep Purple’. And over this time both camps have been enjoying success and stability…while the urgency, authority, tunefulness, melody, instant accessibility, involvement etc. etc. that was the backbone of the music are nowhere to be found. Blast your silly happy relationships, I want my music back!

    Started by watching the video and I thought it was good not great just OK. Then I started to watch a bunch of other BN videos online there really is not much difference in them. If you like it you can have it but it not my cup of tea. You can see the rock in his hands just waiting to explode and so are we. I would not buy this music but I would go see them live if nothing else just to see the man in black!

    Succes??No
    this is New Age chart….
    This song is too similar to others Blackmore’s night songs.
    He won’t even stop with this band because now Candice is his wife…
    so sad…

    T!

    No chart that matters….Personally I have a hard time separate one song from another,they´re pretty much the same!It´s like a xerox machine keeps spitting out the same song over and over again,where´s the nuances and versatility?Same old song and dance….can do without it…CRAP!

    Carlos says:

    Just like “T” said, “Blackmore’s Night” success speaks for itself! And, in the end, it’s all down to a matter of taste! I personally enjoyed Ritchie Blackmore’s music when he was in “Deep Purple” and now in “Blackmore’s Night” because I appreciate both styles! Is that so unusual?

    AndreA says:

    Mah…
    The giutars are not bad…but the singing is always the same boring,the sound is the same as the firs BN…and
    at the end it makes me remember Mike Odfield..eighties…

    I don’t need it,I love only RnR.

    ciao

    Jeffs says:

    Candice looks gorgeous, Ritchies playing beutifully. the song structure is “very Blackmore” in any stage of his career. Ritchies songs have always been RnR AndreA it’s just the approach of the musicians involved and the vocalists that change;-)

  11. 11
    AndreA says:

    🙂

    Jeff…
    yes guitars have beatifull melodies,Blacmore has a very good approach to the structure,but to be RnR needs rock..and then you roll..this is not rock,is folk: that is my simple poor opinion..

    if I play BNcd,I get sleeping after the 2nd piece..maximum at the 3rd..because i don’t feel rock.

    it is olnly for the real B’s fans,not for all and
    not for me..

    cheers friend

    No problem if Blackmore play folk music.No problem if succes or not succes.
    The problem is that is doing always the same album and songs….
    Can you understand this?

    Blackers is looking a bit ‘rough’ and ‘baggy eyed’ these days…..

    Ahhhhhh……the excesses of ‘Rock n Roll’, and the lute…….

    I guess even a youngish fiance cant stop the ‘clock’!

    Everytime I see a pic of RB i’m reminded of that halloween fancy dress party I went to a couple of years ago.

    And everytime I see a BN video Im reminded that ‘everythings changed’……

    The ‘Man In Black’ is no more………only a minstrel remains!

    Those amongst us who follow BN must be desperate to get a glimpse of the ‘lengend that was’……..ME…..I cant get past the hat and tights……….

    MattDP says:

    I can respect that he should do what he wants but why can’t he do a Rock album while still doing BN? IMO its pure stubborness. He owes it to his rock fans which I am sure there are more of than the new age stuff.

    Larry Ray says:

    A couple of things, firstly, a seperated chart means nothing when it comes to a clearly pop aim they have been after all this time.

    Secondly, Blackmore’s Night, has not for one note whatsoever of their entire catalog even been touched on “new age music” it’s not even remotely related to that category and should not be placed in it at all.
    It’s simply not new age music, not one single song of theirs is new age. So there is a serious ignorance concerning that.

    The correct category should be “Old age”, it´s just a matter of misunderstanding!!!!!!!

    Deep Purple Sucks! Did you catch that? One more time; Deep Purple Sucks!! Nowadays, that is. Blackmore is the icon that MADE that band. Without Ritchie Blackmore, Deep Purple would have been nothing. Much like they are now. You people make fun of him? The way he dresses? What about Ian Gillan and his horrid voice? He lost his singing vocals decades ago. And that’s what matters. Watching Come Hell Or High Water is embarrasing to hear Ian attempting to fake his way through Highway Star, Child In Time or anything else. Hang it up already.
    And as for people ripping on Blackmore’s Night on the New Age Chart; When was the last time your precious Deep Purple charted on anything? Blackmore’s guitar playing is aging like fine wine whereas Ian Gillia’s voice is aging like a dead fish left out in the sun.
    And for the people that whine and pine over Blackmore restarting Rainbow or “rocking” again, get over it already. Blackmore’s Night has their own cult following and don’t have to cater to disgruntled Purple/Rainbow whiners. If you don’t like them, then don’t listen.
    And that wanker Steve Morse seems more like he should be plucking a banjo in a bluegrass band. Pure garbage.
    So, cheers to ya, even though judging from some of your comments (stefan, rascal), most of you don’t even seem old enough to drink anyway. FU and cheers anyway.

    I consider myself an RB fan, but make no secret about my feelings for his present cabaret act!I don´t care what he does as long as he rocks!If his present adventure makes him happy….that´s all fine and dandy,but a terrible waste of pure genius and talent!ROCK ON!!

    Tracy Heyder says:

    Hey Grindhouse Dean…..

    I am copying and pasteing a comment that I had placed eslewhere, but it is very fitting in response to your display of total biasness, with little regard to common sense or reality even.

    You fall under the same old Pin Head Blackmore is God platform, so there is only one response necessary because the likes of you can only focus through your “pointy little hat and shoes”.

    Regarding your Bashing Morse and Gillan, while Sucking Blackmore’s “Plinky Finger”….Read On:

    I doubt you will find anyone able to emulate Steve Morse as easily as this young Japanese kid can copy Blackmore. Know Why? Complexity. That’s why. Blackmore took a simple “plinking style” of play and gave it character. “His Character”. That’s the beauty of Blackmore. The simple cords of SOTW were as simple as they come, but it was a “Blackmorism”. That is the beauty of Blackmore.

    Now, take technical and precise ability? Morse will kick his ass all over the place. Just to prove to all of the “Blackmore Worshipers”, I would love to witness Steve Morse do a “Blackmore Tribute” showing that he can not only emulate Blackers, but take it to another level. He could and is very capable, but he is too much respective of the old geezer and would never go to that extreme. He is quite the gentleman.

    Blackmore may be “King” in the ‘Lost Blackmore Kingdom’, but Morse “REIGNS” in the present ‘Purple Kingdom’ and has done so for 15 years. Sorry to say here but he could never be emulated by Blackmore. This I Guarantee. As with the live renditions that Morse does, covering the MK2 material….when he wishes, he totally emulates Blackmore where he feels necessary for the “purist’s sake”, but overall, makes the songs ‘his own’. Blackmore could never pull that off.

    And You Know IT!!!! Unless of course you are in denial as is the fact that Purple is just fine without Blackmore and you can’ accept that.

    As far as Gillan goes, you are out of your head. Aside from losing a slight hint of his screams and highs, he is more “Spot On” today overall than back in the day. It’s the overall performance that you have to concider. Unless of course you have your eyes and ears closed to the reality due to it not fitting into your narrow view of music and performance. You probably have a hard time humming the riff of Smoke on the Water, because it’s soooooo technical in your little Blackmore is God world.

    OK….must cage the emotion….must grab a cocktail….must jump in the hot tub….must crank up some Dixie Dreggs and hear the guitarist whom saved Purple from the man who ‘Abandoned’ the greatest band the earth has ever known, for his selfish ego. Thanks Steve for jumping into the frying pan and re-lighting the fire and creating Purple of the present. This too will someday be a part of past ‘Purple Passages’, but if not for you, we’d be stuck listening to ‘Battle Rages On’, JLT’s ‘S&M’ (hmmmmm isn’t that the same initials for sado-masochist?) crap or everything before. Personally I prefer the newer stuff, even though I am an old fogy. That has to count for something.

    Oh and by the way,,,,,I’m old, drunk and diggin’ Purple-more. Take your Black-more and frolic in the forest…..It’s all he is worth anymore. So join his little “Merry Keebler Elves” and dance to the lameness.

    Cheers

    I did hear some time back that Jeff Beck was going to ditch his guitar for an ‘Elizabethan dress’ with ‘wig’ and ‘accordion’………..

    TruthHurts says:

    Dear Tracy Heyder:

    1. Why would anyone want to emulate Steve Morse, ever?
    No classic riffs, no timeless melodies, no authoratative tone – just that same corny milk-and-honey widdle every time, with a few contrived wails thrown in here and there for ‘spontaneity’. He is technical for the sake of being technical – I think it is a nonsense to say he has taken Blackmore’s music to another level – he doesn’t even get the basics of Deep Purple right, let alone add to it. If you want to hear DP at another level, check out the best moments of Mark IV with the late great Tommy Bolin. And listening to Akira Kajiyama playing “Mistreated” on Hughes-Turner Project’s ‘Live In Tokyo’ should make you realise how much better Deep Purple would be without Morse.

    2. Ian Gillan’s vocal these days is spot on, you say, more so than back in 70s. What an amazing comment!! (especially on “Highway Star” I presume, complete with hopeless Morse ‘other level’ intro!) The main reason our formerly masterful Mr G. might sound OK today is because he has a a guitarist with a weak and watery tone (the antithesis of hard rock) behind him – he’s not being pushed too hard.

    3. You PREFER the Steve Morse stuff to classic DP. Wow!!! Each to their own I say…Personally, I will never tire of hearing the first 25 years of Deep Purple music (yes that includes MkV with Joe Lynn Turner), it will always have something new for me, every time I hear it. Being such a DP fan I tried hard to get into Morse, but then I realised with the classic stuff, you don’t get into it, it gets into YOU.

    Regards
    TruthHurts

    P.S. I’m not a Blackmore’s Night fan, and nor should any serious RB follower be – enough with the dill-dallying:encourage the man to get back to what he does best.

    Tracy Heyder says:

    TruthHurts: therefor you must love the pain……

    My point was entirely ignored by your response. My statement regarding the ability to “Copy” either of the 2 guitarists style was regarding the fact that like it or not, Blackmore’s style of play is emulated all the time by the “Purple Cover Acts”. There are a shitload of them and for the most part, they can sound and play just like Ritchie. By the same token, I guarrantee, there are few guitarist around who can emulate Steve Morses style of play as easily. Your preference as to which style you like more is a personal taste that has nothing to do with any of the statements I made. I love all of the Blackmore music, including Blackmore’s Night. But at the same time, I also love the Morse era. The Present era, and most likely the Final Era. I had every Morse album before he joined Deep Purple. His solo stuff and the Dixie Dreggs. What’s great about choosing him….HE SOUNDS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!!!!! Now, whe get a whole new approach to the Old Tunes that I grew very weary of hearing the Old Way. I did not say that I prefer Morse over Blackmore. I respect them both as equals. They are guitarists of very different style and the Deep Purple records they both are a part of are equally as valid. You bring up those other guitarists because they try to sound like Blackmore and that is what you like. But the rest of your argument falls under that Pin Head, narrow minded “Blackmore Rules” bopper BS. That’s fine for you I guess. But then, you “Blackmore Rules” folks are the only ones whining like little Fat Girls because your great Hero has left the building……”Truth Hurts, so does Love”. I’d hate to be that much in love with Blackmore. Ohhhh the pain…..

    Morse was voted “Best Guitarist” for 5 years in a row, in Guitar Magazine. Not a “Fan Mag”, a Guitar Mag, by guitar players.

    The Gillan issue again, was mis-quoted. What I stated was that aside from the extreme high pitched screams on the records with Child in Time or Highway Star, everyhing in between is definatel spot on. My Back in the Day remark didn’t necessarily pertain to ’72. But that’s ok. Again, his voice is in great form overall, but only the Nit Picky negative toward the present Purple will smash the guy for having trouble with the extremes of the screams. If that’s what you need, let me introduce you to my X-wife……

    Cheers

    DAWG says:

    STEFAN! THANKS FOR THE WARNING! PROBLEM IS I WAS BLINDSIDED. I LAUGH AT ALL THIS AND I ONLY RESPOND WHEN THE WHEELS REALLY RUN OFF THE TRACKS. I KNOW MUSIC IS THE MOST SUBJECTIVE THING ON EARTH, BUT WHEN SOMEONE BRINGS TOMMY BOLIN INTO THE MIX [GOD REST HIS SOUL] THEY REALLY HAVE DRIFTED AND CLEARLY HAVE AN AGENDA. WHEN TOMMY GOT STARTED HE WAS FANTASTIC. HAD GREAT WORK WITH CARLOS MONZON [AND OTHERS], HOOKED UP WITH BILLY COBHAM AND RECORDED ONE OF THE GREATEST PROGRESSIVE JAZZ ALBUMS I HAVE EVER HEARD OR WILL EVER HEAR. [SPECTRUM] HE WAS IN HIS EARLY 20S. AS I’M SURE MOST OF YOU KNOW HE DID THE JAMES GANG DEAL WHICH I THOUGHT WAS QUITE GOOD. [LISTEN TO “BANG” AND “MIAMI”.] REALLY GOOD STUFF FROM A GUY WHO AT THE TIME DIDN’T KNOW IT BUT WHEN HE THOUGHT HE WAS TAKING OFF, HE WAS CRASHING. WHEN RITCHIE LEFT AFTER BEING DISGUSTED WITH STORMBRINGER [WHICH I STILL LOVE] HE ACTUALLY RECOMMENDED TOMMY BOLIN. TOMMY WAS IN THE PROCESS OF WRITING AND RECORDING TEASER. WHICH WAS REALLY GOOD. THE COME TASTE THE BAND ALBUM CAME OUT AT ROUGHLY THE SAME TIME. ALL WAS REALLY GOOD. PROBLEM WAS, HE WAS A HOPELESS HEROIN, COCAIN, AND ALCOHOL ATTIC. [ACCORDING TO ALL THE GUYS IN PURPLE PARTICULARLY GLENN HUGHES] IF YOU LISTEN TO EVERYTHING AFTER COME TASTE THE BAND IT IS SAD. THE LIVE PURPLE STUFF FROM THAT POINT FORWARD MAKES YOU CRINGE. I SAW THEM IN ATLANTA IN SPRING ’76 AND COVERDALE HAD TO DRAG HIM ONSTAGE. HIS NEXT SOLO ALBUM WAS PRIVATE EYES I THINK AND IT WAS WRETCHED. I HAD TICKETS IN MY POCKET ON THAT DAY IN 1976 FOR HIS SHOW AT THE ELECTRIC BALLROOM IN ATLANTA WHEN I FOUND OUT HE DIED IN MIAMI OF AN OVERDOSE OF A LOT OF SHIT THE NIGHT BEFORE. YOU CAN EVEN LOOK AT PHOTOS OF HIM AT THE END AND HE WAS SO BLOATED HIS FINGERS LOOKED LIKE SAUSAGE. I’M NOT TRYING TO TRASH TOMMY, BUT WHEN YOU BRING HIM INTO THIS ALREADY REDICULOUS DEBATE YOU SINK LIKE A STONE. AND PLEASE, IAN GILLAN IS STILL VERY SOLID AT HIS MID RANGE. BUT FOLKS, HE IS 63 YEARS OLD AND THE RANGE REALLY LEFT HIM ABOUT 1990. HE REALLY IS AMAZING TO BE AS GREAT AS HE IS AFTER 40 PLUS YEARS OF THIS. BUT SOME NIGHTS IT IS NOT PRETTY. LISTEN AND WATCH THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF MONTREAU JAZZ FEST.[06] DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT PERFORMANCE FROM IAN GILLAN WAS “SPOT ON”? THIS IS ALL COMING FROM A HUGE DEEP PURPLE FAN OF 38 YEARS. TRASHING STEVE MORSE? THEY STOPPED GIVING HIM GUITARIST OF THE YEAR AFTER 5 OR 6 OF THEM IN SUCCESSION. [AND IT WAS GUITAR MAGAZINE I THINK]. YOU PREFER WHAT YOU PREFER, AND THAT IS GREAT, BUT TRY TO KEEP IT ON THE TRACKS.

    TruthHurts says:

    Mr Heyder: Steve Morse sounds totally different to Blackmore and players that are influenced by him, that’s for sure: no other player in the world (amateur or professional) can play classic DP with as weak and inappropriate a tone as him. As for Mr. Gillan’s voice, if you think I’m nitpicking..more power to you – it hasn’t done much for me since the mid-80s.

    Mr Dawg: (please quit the caps they give me a headache) I said the best of Tommy Bolin, not the worst! There is some awesome playing by him on “California Rehearsals”, “Russian Foxbat” and “Come Taste The Band”. He delivered the goods with the songwriting and riffs too: Love Child, Drifter, Getting Tighter, Coming Home etc. etc. Tommy Bolin understood and could play the basics of hard rock style and understood its parameters very well, he did that without sounding like anyone else. That’s what anyone playing Deep Purple guitar players needs to do.

    And for the TRILLIONTH time I do not support Blackmore’s Night!! I like hard rock played with balls, that kicks ass, that sends shivers down your spine, etc. etc. There is not much of it around these days, but the hype has never been greater.

  44. 44
    stefan says:

    Truthhurts!

    I agree about Bolin!When clean(sorta),sober & focused he was great….when not,he sucked!!Personally I love “Come taste the band”,”Russian foxbat” and various bootlegs… both DP and solo!Sadly winter came too early for Tommy,that he went snowblind and died!Ahh, well..he wasn´t the first and certainly not the last!Some people never learn, do they??

  45. 45
    Tracy Heyder says:

    Can’t agreee with you on the Morse issue….TruthHurts.

    As with Tommy Bolin, he was recruited and paved his own way, with his own style of playing. Your discription of Morse’s playing being “weak and inappropriate a tone”, is your typical oppinion when for whatever reason you dislike someone period. He is well rounded and plays hard when it is needed and lighter at the same time when needed. He is a true professional and has proven that he IS Deep Purple’s Guitarist and his style is their sound and a welcome one at that. Yes, your little band of Ritchie Lovers maintain your S.O.S. Morse Bashing….but as with your name…’Truth Hurts’, you guys are the only ones feeling the pain, while Deep Purple and the fans whom have moved on and respect WHAT IS are happy as can be, enjoying some outstanding music by this 15 year old version of Purple that has taken a more present approach to their music than staying stagnant and rehashing the “Blackmore Style” over and over again.

    TruthHurts says:

    And where are the classic riffs, the timeless melodies, the authorative presence, Morse heads?!? Fifteen years on, it still feels that he is auditioning for a part he cannot really play. Well yes he can play, in that inimitable robotic ‘style’ of his. Enjoy…

    p.s. I haven’t heard everything that JLT has done, but what I do hear largely impresses me – his vocal is still pitch perfect, his phrasing smooth and expressive. He does aim to ‘kick-ass’ every time, even if he doesn’t always hit the mark.

    Not being a Christian Fundamentalist, I don’t have a problem with long hair, heavy make-up, heels, skirts on a man – the domain of kings, lords, princes and kings for thousands of years. ‘Real’ man (i.e. rough appearance,aggressive) and ‘real’ woman (ridiculously over-feminised,gold-digging) of today is a direct emulation of the bisexual ‘cultures’ of ancient Greece, Sparta and Lesbos.
    It’s interesting to see how frightened and afraid of an individual fundamentalists can be, despite absolute saturation of advertising, media, movies etc. Perhaps head to your nearest church for guidance? Be sure to dress as a schoolboy, that’ll surely get the attention…

    Yeah, that’s just what a true JLT Poof boy wants for a fan…..’the dullest knife in the drawer’…Dull, because it can’t cut it’s way out of the Old Mold of the Ex Purple Guitarist whom has become quite moldy himself with his Dull and quirkey band of Tights being led by a Skirt whom sings like someones mother in the kitchen…….

    “Bring thy dull knife to the duel, my everso sharp blade will penetrate through the sternum and puncture thy boring heart”

    Cheers

    Openly flirtatious and accepting when it come to ‘long hair, heavy make-up, heels, skirts on a man’…………….and yet blinkered and ignorant when it comes to the ‘Main Man Morse’….

    The domain of Kings and Princes…..maybe

    But this ‘dull blade’…….seems more in touch with the ‘Queen’ within him, than the ‘King’….

    Maybe a penchant for a man in tights

    Windass….sorry…hawk!

    To clarify: I actually like JLT when he sticks to his own material,old Rainbow numbers and the S & M era! But when he recyle and rehash songs he had nothing to do with,as “Burn”,”Stormbringer” and “Hush….he´s just tasteless and trying to gain unjustified credit for something he had nothing to do with!Unless you have contributed to a song(lyrics,melody,original recording or whatever)…don´t do it!!It´s a question about respect and integrity,and that´s why we never will hear Ian Gillan sing any MK III material….he had nothing to do with it!!

    Oh, by the way…Don´t mind being called “pussy”…at least I like pussy….A LOT!!!!!
