I cannot think of a better way to summarise the superb work of Rainbow over the 70s and 80s, than the Catch the Rainbow Anthology.
The 2 CDs chronologically go through the 70s and 80s, taking tracks from 9 of the Rainbow albums. The first disc covers the Ronnie James Dio era - titles such as 'Sixteenth Century Greensleeves', 'Tarot Woman', 'Starstruck' and 'Kill the King'. Not to mention 'Stargazer' - only a true Rainbow fan can appreciate its sheer brilliance, which breaks through late in the song. Disc 1 also contains Rainbow's share of slower songs - 'Catch the Rainbow' and 'Rainbow Eyes' which don't possess the stunning rhythms of the heavier tracks, but still bring Rainbow to life. All of the songs were written by Ritchie Blackmore, who in my opinion, remains one of the greatest guitarists of all time, and can even give Hendrix a run for his money.
Disc 2 starts from 1979 - Dio is no longer with the band, and his small-time replacement, Graham Bonnet, opens up with 'Eyes Of The World', which shows a sign of moving away from Blackmore's "vision of creating a medieval ambience within a hard rock framework". Shortly following is "Since You Been Gone" and "All Night Long" and in my opinion, are some of the greatest tracks Rainbow have ever done. 'Weiss Heim' is an interesting one, no lyrics, a nice peaceful melody. 'I Surrender', 'Jealous Lover', 'Stone Cold', 'Tearin Out My Heart' and 'Power' all follow. All are simply amazing. 'Jealous Lover' is just outstanding, and 'Power' feels like it's come straight from a movie. By this time Joe Lynn Turner has replaced Bonnet for Rainbow's later work. The compilation finishes with 'Difficult To Cure', recorded live from Tokyo, Japan in 1984.

Record companies...don't ya just love 'em? Rather than release some of the excellent live recordings known to exist of one of the best hard rock combos of the 70s/80s, they continue to churn out collections of stuff the hardened fans already have.
But, (calming a little...!) for those unfamiliar with Rainbow and wanting to find out what all the fuss was about there probably isn't a better place to start. All the classics from every era of the band is here, from the neo-classical epics of Ronnie Dio to the AOR radio friendly ballads of the mid 80s. Lets not forget Ritchie Blackmore's sublime axe work throughout too.
A worthwhile purchase in that context, maybe to listen to while reading the recently published band biography?

Great Album covering all eras of the band and the songs that were not singles but the best tracks on album which so many previous albums always missed out.

Dio Era - Just Awesome

Bonnet Era - The Singles and the other decent stuff from Down to Earth.

Turner Era - All the cheesies and Rockers

Really enjoyed this - A blast from the past that still Rocks.

He may be touchy but he couldn't half deliver the goods - Wake up Blackmore and get back on track!!.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER on 27 Jun. 2010
Format: Audio CD
One of the best compiliations discs around,a fantastic band sadly underated,the 2 disc set covers the bands original period 1975 to 1984.

Disc 1 features the Dio years and as such for most rock fans of a certain vintage will be the main feature,it perfectly highlights the Dio era and covers all bases with classics such as 'Stargazer' 'Gates Of Babylon' 'Kill The King','Tarot Woman' & '16th Century Greensleeves' while the more mellow side is covered by the superb 'Catch The Rainbow' & 'Rainbow Eyes' indeed if they'd managed to include 'Temple of the King' this would have been the perfect disc.

Disc 2 covers the 'Pop' years and has the hits 'All Night Long','Since You've Been Gone,'I Surrender','Stone Cold' etc. For some Rainbow never recovered from the loss of Dio but thats to ignore decent tracks like 'Eyes Of The World','Cant Happen Here' and 'Spotlight Kid' while 'Jealous Lover and 'Tearin Out My Heart' show that with the right material Rainbow could still cut it,would have loved 'Eyes of Fire' to have been included,still the disc closes with a magnificent live version of 'Difficult To Cure'.

All in all a stunning compilation ,remastered,giving a decent sound,not sure why a previous reviewer didnt like it,still its all subjective,start your love affair with Rainbow here,you wont regret it.

Very popular at the beginning of the 80s, Rainbow were the first heavy rock group I really got into as a teenager. Unlike Rush, Black Sabbath and Ritchie Blackmore's previous band Deep Purple however, my appreciation of them didn't continue as I ventured into adulthood. Listening to this compilation now in (lower!) middle age, this largely continues to be the case.

Ritchie Blackmore formed Rainbow after becoming disillusioned with the funk-y direction of Purple's Stormbringer LP. Never a democracy, he was always considered a difficult man to work with as the vast number of musicians in the band over the years testifies. There were a few such as Ronnie James Dio (RIP), Cozy Powell and Roger Glover who stayed the course over several albums and had a palpable impact on the Rainbow sound though the majority of Ritchie's sidemen were one or two album wonders.

Ah yes the sound! Listening back to Rainbow, it's clear that there were two distinct phases in the band's career which are neatly separated by the two CDs in the Catch The Rainbow anthology. Phase one up to and including the Long Live Rock'n'Roll LP consists of prog-influenced heavy rock with plenty of swords and sorcery in the lyrics whereas phase two contains blatantly commercial pop metal. Needless to say, I much prefer the epic rock of the first CD.

Highlights of the first album include Man On The Silver Mountain, Stargazer and Gates Of Babylon though even the band's best work does not touch the heights of Blackmore's previous group. Maybe the lack of democracy is a factor here. I Surrender and Spotlight Kid with its slightly folky middle section are my favourite songs on CD Two with the rest of the music pretty much the antithesis of everything I like about pop and rock music I'm afraid.
