Gone With The Wind

Album: Under a Violet Moon (1999)
  • Unlike the Margaret Martin composition of the same name, this Blackmore's Night track is another fine example of olde worlde meets contemporary rock. It begins with the sound of a galloping horse and "intense kettledrums."

    The "Gone With The Wind" of Mr. and Mrs. Blackmore (Candice Night and Ritchie Blackmore married in 2008) is actually based on a Russian piece called "Polyushko Polye." >>
