Nature’s Light by Blackmore’s Night: Yes, the Renaissance-reenacting jigs and reels of the former Deep Purple and Rainbow guitarist Ritchie Blackmore and his wife have begun to sound like variations on the same theme. But, one, there’s nothing wrong with the theme. Two, “The Twisted Oak” belongs on the couple’s next best-of. And, three, Stevie Nicks could do wonders with “Four Winds.” Additionally, Blackmore occasionally still plugs in and solos, and not every song is a jig or reel.
