Product Description

When Blackmore’s Night rolled in to York, England, on 30 September 2011, the heat scorched the medieval streets and the sunlight bathed the old city walls. Inside the Grand Opera House, Ritchie Blackmore, Candice Night and their band of minstrels were generating their own heat as they took their devoted audience on a musical journey through the ages with songs from their two new albums, Secret Voyage and Autumn Sky, such as "Locked Within The Crystal Ball", "Darkness" plus a new interpretation of "First Of May" – a rarely played ballad, originally performed by the Bee Gees, and an additional smattering of songs from earlier albums, most notably the classic "Fires At Midnight."

The third Blackmore’s Night Blue-ray release A Knight In York captures all the magic of this stunning Blackmore’s Night show.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Knight of Sound & Vision in York 10 July 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have seen the band on numerous past UK and German tours and for this specific tour we chose the following night's Buxton concert rather than the York show at which they filmed this DVD. It has been an eagerly awaited DVD as a record of another wonderful UK tour.

Other reviewers have mentioned the extreme editing of the show, which I can understand their frustration particularly if they were present at the show. There was a significant amount of jokes and crowd banter from Candice and particularly Richie (who was very much in fine form) during the song intervals. I assume the reason for the editing is that they have chosen to focus on the more recent songs from the last two albums on the set (with the exception of Fires at Midnight which they slightly reworked) and hence the reduced running time.

So what do we get: an absolutely crystal clear blue-ray picture of the concert with so much detail and wonderful deep rich colours. The DTS 5:1 sound is mind blowing. First job is to adjust the sub-woofer volume down, even if like me, you like excess bass in the mix. It is very easy to damage the ears and any free moving object in the room. The 5:1 mix is not too elaborate and all the instruments are clear within the surround-soundstage without any sonic gimmicks. OK it is not on par with being present live at one of their shows but it is still extremely impressive to the ears.

Very predictable as I am an veteran Purple/Rainbow fan the stand-out favourite parts of the concert are when the Stat comes out in The Circle and Journeyman. It appears from what I can remember from the Buxton show the electric guitar solos in these two song were extended for the York video. However, the whole concert is very good and I do not think there is a bad song on the release.

5.0 out of 5 stars black knight... 18 July 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I could understand why people who were at the concert would prefer a complete live show. As I live in an isolated city in the far reaches of the world, to me this DVD is well represented with more new songs from their last two albums. It compliments the last two DVDs like "Castles and Dreams" and "Paris Moon" and made an extended updates on the live collections. I am happy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why tamper with perfection 7 July 2012
By Steve
Format:Audio CD
Despite the many CDs and DVDs that I have purchased from Amazon, this is the first time I have felt compelled to add a review. I too was at this concert and can confirm that it was a magical night with excellent music with a few laughs thrown in, Ritchie conversing with the audience no less. The DVD does not convey that warmth that the band have with their fans, particularly those who take the trouble to enter into the spirit by donning the garb. The running order has been severely edited with the old favourite Home Again being condemned to the rubbish bin and weaker tracks introduced. I still rate the effort as they are a very accomplished set of musicians and Candice's voice continues to amaze me but why, oh why did they not leave the concert as it was and treat everyone to a what was a very special Blackmore's Night.

The sound quality is excellent and most of these fine songs are from the most recent albums Secret Voyage and Autumn Sky. It's good to hear new songs (such as Journeyman, Crystal Ball, Peasant's Promise) played with slightly different arrangements, as some of the old songs (Home Again, Renaissance Fayre, Minstrel Hall) were getting a little too familiar. There are some earlier songs (Fires At Midnight, World Of Stone) and a few moments of banter / humour. It's a pity we get just 80 minutes on 1 disc, when we should surely expect to hear the full concert across 2 discs (hence 4 stars instead of 5). Surely music fans just want someone to start recording 1 minute before the start of the show and stop recording 1 minute after the end of the show ! We want to hear it all, including stage buzzes and a few errors, instead of edited highlights. For those who accept that Mr Blackmore is fully committed to minstrel music, with no thoughts of ever returning to heavy rock, this is a fine and bewitching album. Embrace it and enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff 11 July 2012
By pete JW
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Its not the full concert, but who cares. Ritchie on top form , but sad that that Malcolm has now left as their long standing drummer, that being his last tour. The blu ray quality is very good and the sound far more superior to the bass heavy Paris Moon . For me it still captures the magic of the night and memories of that scorching weekend in york, also the stressed out look of some of the film crew in a nearby pub afterwards. Beer hard earned perhaps !

5.0 out of 5 stars We were there 30/09/2011 17 July 2012
By chaz
Format:MP3 Download
The best gig in 20 years !!!! and the album represents that. Sadly only a part of a much longer set, but if Ritchie wants to be Sir Galahad, on the evidence of his band and their brilliant musicianship, thats OK by me !!!! Candice is not bad either !!!!!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars discs warped 8 Mar 2014
Format:Vinyl
The four stars are for the music only. One star for the condition of the product. I decided to buy this on vinyl after buying a new turntable , on receiving the first album both discs were warped , I returned them for an exchange only to receive another pair of warped discs , I could not be bothered with the hassle of returning them again as they fortunately do play , but that's not the point . I have a feeling Amazon have no idea how to store vinyl albums , or they have a batch of warped discs , which I doubt

Blackmore is Blackmore ! I think it's not worth hurry to bury Blackmore's Night after Autumn Sky. Blackmore is genius (especially under wise guidance of Candice) !
