Loreena McKennitt’s Nights from the Alhambra is set for re-release for the first time on clear double vinyl. The original 2014 black vinyl run of 7,500 copies sold out and has long since been unavailable outside of the specialist collectors’ market.
Songs include long-time fan favourites and career highlights from The Visit, The Mask and Mirror, The Book of Secrets and An Ancient Muse. The band that features on these recordings includes Nigel Eaton (Page & Plant) on hurdy gurdy, Irish piper Steffan Hannigan (Bjork, Sin E, Depeche Mode) and three Greek master musicians on lyra, oud and kanoun alongside Loreena long-standing Loreena collaborators such as Hugh Marsh, Caroline Lavelle and Brian Hughes.
The two-disc set was the first Loreena McKennitt live recording made available in the revived lp format. This re-release marks the 15th anniversary of the original concert in September 2006 and will be available from October 29th 2021, direct-from-artist.
