5.0 out of 5 stars A True Gem ! 8 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Free from the confines of Deep Purple, Richie Blackmore guides a powerful Rainbow lineup ( possibly the greatest combination of talent in rock history ) to dizzy heights of rock with an almost 'jazz like' freedom, such is his natural ability when he's in the mood. He certainly was in form here & along with the little elf with the awesome vocals, Ronnie James Dio, we get quite a treat here. These recordings were apparantly only discovered in the late '80's in a vault in London and what a find !
I don't think I'll ever tire of it ... definately a must for any collection if you have an ear for real music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ritchie, you really are a god 31 Dec 2004
Format:Audio CD
OK so Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow was one of the greatest hits in rock. Rising propelled Rainbow to musical stardom. Long Live Rock 'N Roll provided the final magical moments for the Dio era before going out in a blaze of glory. These three glorius albums pretty much defined rock.
So maybe Jimi Hendrix did set fire to his guitar on stage back in '67. But does that sort of crowd-shocker really compare to the intensity delivered by Ritchie Blackmore? For me it's a question which can be answered by this live compilation only.
Once you've listened to the studio versions to death, turn the page in the Rainbow anthology and witness the awesome power of Blackmore/Dio's Rainbow performing live in Germany, 1976.
There is simply no finer live performance than what you'll witness on these two discs. Hard rock heaven, to say the least.
1. KILL THE KING - Wow - what an opening. The LLRNR classic kick-starts Rainbow's concert to a full-blown rollercoaster. The perfect introduction in my opinion.
2. MISTREATED - I still cannot get over the sheer briliance of Mistreated. Yes Deep Purple's version is amazing, but Rainbow's performance is just awesome. Features a solid 5-minute guitar solo by Blackmore and incredible interplay between Dio and Blackmore later in the song. Absolutely fantastic.
3. SIXTEENTH CENTURY GREENSLEEVES - One of the best performances at the concert, Sixteenth Century sounds 100 times better live. Faster, louder and more intense, Blackmore and Dio carry Rainbow all the way to the top with this song. The guitarplay by Blackmore is simply unreal. Dio's vocals are mesmerising. An incredible performance.
4. CATCH THE RAINBOW - Stunning is the word I'd use to describe this track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much much better than "Live on Stage" 18 May 2010
By Aquinas
Format:Audio CD
When I came across this in the early 90s I was astonished at how much better it was than on the officially released "Live on Stage" which I thought was a bit of a mixed bag. By contrast, this recording has Blackmore at his best with scintillating guitar playing - it just shows you how performances can range from concert to concert. But, this is the definitive Rainbow live album and of their best line up.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed 23 Feb 2012
By chaddy
Format:Audio CD
Expected lots after reading the reviews on amazon and was hugely dissapointed. I agree that the songs are performed well, but the sound recording is dreadful, absolutely miles away from "On Stage". Not sure what kit these reviewers have, but there's absolutely no point whatsoever listening to what must have been absolutely awesome if you were there, if the sound coming out of your speakers is as bad as this. Go for On Stage, it's awesome, especially Catch the Rainbow. Not quite Made in Japan, but better than Made in Europe, apart from Mistreated, on which Dio can't quite match Coverdale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best live rainbow performance recording 8 Oct 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you're a fan of Rainbow and want the best live performances get this CD. 100 minutes of high power plus occasional moments of subtlety. All performed brilliantly. It has a 17 minute version of Stargazer that must be in every fan's collection. On-Stage is excellent but this is better.
