AllMusic Review by

The 2012 box set The Beginning contains the two studio albums from Richie Blackmore's Night -- Shadow of the Moon and Under a Violet Moon -- and it also has DVDs recorded on the supporting tours for the albums. The Shadow of the Moon DVD has highlights from the 1997-1998 tour and the Under a Violet Moon DVD from 2000, and while both are certainly of interest to the hardcore, the less dedicated may be tempted by the set as a whole, as it contains all of Blackmore's Night's work at a reasonable price.
