2 stars Well Mr.Blackmore are at it again......its a shame that so many people did it before him, playing the folkrock that is!!Now dont get me wrong i rather like Blackmore´s guitar... only..i like it back then....oh,those days...those early Deep purple days!!! I use to love hearing the sound of his guitar on the first three albums by Deep Purple!! Which by the way were the most progressive (here´s the chance, my fellow prog- reviewers, to argue with me!) albums by Deep Purple!!! Now ,back to the matter....i know that this is his "love affair" he married the wonderfull Candice Knight. Thats all well and good and she does have a wonderfull voice!! All that said...its a nice record...with wonderfull tunes...and she does sing wonderfully.. BUT...there are so many..many..groups out there..that does it better!!!! Folkrock groups (Who does it better): Fotheringay /Fairport convention/Steeleye span/ Trees/Dando Shaft/Trader horne. To name a few!! But OK if you must...this is an OK folk outfit...just dont expect the real thing! Sorry Mr. Blackmore......back to the roots!! If you please!!
