Yes, of [sign in to see URL] you get my point - it's not an invetment decision, and we frequently spend a lot moer for things that disappear in a moment, so if you pay a little for music, even if sometimes you get it wrong and buy songs you don't loke, it's not a drama.

No I agree entirely, it's worth risking a little perhaps to benefit greatly, or perhaps not, depending on the music you end up with.

Usually with Blackmore every album has something on it that's worth the money along with piles of not so good and some absolute twaddle stuff. Increasingly as time passes the gems are becoming harder to find and the not so good and twaddle proliferate.

I'm guessing that although deaf Beethoven would hear the music in his own head, just in the same way as we can all recall tunes internally and with his skill he could writ it down. As you say, truly amazing stuff to create such a work, when he couldn't hear it.

Yes, he could hear it in his head, and yet a symphony requires to arrange about 100 instruments, so it's quite difficult to process it by imagination only. But again, there is only one every so many who can get to that level.

Re: Blackmore's Night compilation


i'd forgotten how good some of the early stuff on this compilation is, probably because as the albums went on they became so repetitive. Remember seeing Spanish nights, shadow of the moon and writing on the wall on the first BN UK tour in Newcastle and York and being blown away with how good they sounded, sadly as the tours and the albums went on the better songs have been replaced by the mediocre stuff.

Yes definitely, back at the start they were really good. The music had investment and passion and Blackmore still had something to get excited about. Candice was just appalling and her vocal was all over the place, flat/sharp anywhere but the right pitch, but nobody cared because Blackmore made up for all of it with his phenomenal playing. I saw them in Newcastle and York early on and the Newcastle show was incredible, York also. A nice venue, half empty with a small audience, half of whom though it was going to be all rock and some I think left, more fool them. When Blackmore got on the strat, he played like his life depended on it and his acoustic playing was raw and exciting. Great days.

As I've said before to me it all changed during/after "Fires At Midnight", then it became just "another day another dollar" and the passion was mostly gone from it. Something happened for sure, don't know what, but it's been down hill since.

Same here. Ghost of a Rose was the last BN CD I listened to all the way through. After that they all started to sound the same and become more boring.
