3 stars The album of full of expectations and Blackmore's and his future wife handle them quite well except that die-hard fans won't hear any electric guitar.

There are a few covers but chosen well. "Wish you were here" is thankfully not a nod to Pink Floyd but a cover of a wonderful melancholic track from Sweden. In comparison with later albums, there are little drums and percussions, which is good to focus on classical music and Celtic tracks. "Ocean gypsy" has litle to do with Gypsy Music but reveals sublime guitar and excellent melody sung by Candice. Of course, traditional English track interpretations such as "Minstrell hall" cannot miss here."Writing on the wall" with its cheap electronic disco beat is regrettable.
