Blackmore's Night
(without Candice)
The Secret Gig Hotel Saray, Granada, Spain 10/12/97 AU 8 CD
 

Comments: Now this is something  you don't get everyday. BN were due to play a large arena on the night of 10th December 1997 but Candice came down with food poisoning so the show was cancelled. However, Ritchie and the boys then camped in the hotel bar, along with around 30 fans and played this set of anything they could think off.  Thankfully, one of the 30 people there had a recorder...
