Blackmore covers Mike Oldfield

Blackmore’s Night have streamed their cover of Mike Oldfield track Moonlight Shadow.

It’s taken from All Our Yesterdays, the 10th album from ex Deep Purple man Ritchie Blackmore’s medieval rock band.

The guitarist last month confirmed he was planning a return to playing rock music in 2016 – but only briefly. He said: “We’ll probably play three or four shows in June. That’s all.” He added that, despite Joe Lynn Turner having talked up the chances of a reunion, the ex Rainbow singer probably wouldn’t be involved.

All Our Yesterdays is released on September 18 in CD, CD/DVD and digital formats, with vinyl and box set versions following on October 16.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
