BLACKMORE’S NIGHT and Ritchie Blackmore Expand Their Visuals

BLACKMORE'S NIGHTAs we mentioned before, next week will see the release of a new BLACKMORE’S NIGHT album, “All Our Yesterdays,” one of the highlights of which is an original composition “Will O’ The Wisp” whose premiere is drawing attention thanks not only to the piece’s beauty but also to Ritchie Blackmore‘s confirmation of his firm intent to stage four rock concerts next year. The guitarist has finally given a reasonable explanation to what many considered his usual teasing, although there’s still no word as to who the veteran is going to play DEEP PURPLE and RAINBOW classics.


Tying in with all this is the news of “The Ritchie Blackmore Story”: the impressive package is to see the light of day on November 6th. Actually, the story itself takes a DVD/Blu-ray disc filled with fresh interviews from The Man In Black himself as well the likes of Glenn HughesJoe Lynn Turner and Brian May yet not the people who played with him in the ’60s such as Mick Underwood, so there may be some lacquering applied to the narrative. Which can’t be said about the expansion of it, as the second DVD in the deluxe edition of “Story” holds RAINBOW’s very last concert of classic era; more so, “Live In Tokyo” – filmed in 1984 and making its official digital debut – pans out onto two CDs that are part of the package alongside other goodies (see the Japanese edition layout, and videos, below).

The tracklist for the Tokyo concert – yes, that’s the one where “Difficult To Cure” is delivered with an orchestra – runs like this:
