Song of the Day: Blackmore’s Night – “Ocean Gypsy”

Happy birthday wishes go out to former Deep Purple guitarist and co-founder Ritchie Blackmore, who turns 72 years old today. This is a track from Blackmore’s Renaissance/folk project Blackmore’s Night, which features his wife Candice Night on vocals. I’m a sucker for the mystical/epic/Renaissance/high fantasy/whatever you want to call it type of stuff when it’s done well, and I think this qualifies. It’s a cover of a 1997 song by Michael Dunford’s Renaissance.
