It's a close call for best Rainbow Album. My preferred era is the Dio/Cozy incarnation of the band 1976-1978 and 'Rising and 'Long live... are within a hair's breadth for most classic album of rainbow's carreer. Many punters go for 'Rising' on the strength of the phenominal 'Stargazer' and 'Light in the Black; but I always plump for LLRAR. From Cozy's opening drum break in the title track, right through to Track 7, Sensitive to light, it is rockin at full tilt. There's Blackmore's trademark classical licks where he combines sweet and sustained tone as well as fast and furious flurries on the fretboard. 'Lady of the Lake' has a riff to die for, punctuated by Cozy's precise drumming. LA Connection has a great groove, a throwback to Blackmore's excursions in Blues and Funk circa Burn and Stormbringer, with Dio in fine voice. 'Gates of Babylon' has 'epic' stamped all over it, from the eerie keyboard intro to Blacknore's classical style riff, through Dio's sword and sorcery lyric to a storming climax, to fade out to a lone violin.
TRACK 5 (OR SIDE 2 in former days begins with a roar with the revved up killer riff of 'Kill the King' which contains arguably Blackmore's greatest solo with some deft interplay between guitar and drums. The Shed (Subtle) has a sleazy, greasy absolutely gorgeous groove, followed by some good time rock and roll with sensitive to light. Closing the album is one of the most beautiful rock ballads ever, Rainbow eyes which would bring a tear to your eyes. Dio shows he can do sensitive as well as total screaming rock out and Ritchies playing is tasteful, yet understated, leaving room for the strings to weave their magic and tear at your heartstrings.
One of the greatest classic rock/metal albums ever.

Unfortunately this was the last studio album to feature Ronnie James Dio in Rainbow and for me the last classic Rainbow album made. In my view the rest that followed did not reach the same very high level set by the first three studio albums. This album caused some talking points at the time such as who did which bass tracks and the later revelation that the inside cover photograph was taken from a Rush concert. I manage to see this line-up of Rainbow playing live back in late 1977 and they were magnificent.

I still have an original copy of the 1978 vinyl record on the Polydor label but it is in very bad condition after extensive playing. I have been using the 1999 re-mastered CD version, which I consider to be more compressed and flat sounding compared to the original vinyl. For me vinyl still rules particularly with rock music and to find this album released on vinyl again was a dream come true.

So to this latest version, weighed in at 190g on clear vinyl vs the original standard black pigmented copy at 116g. Personally I prefer clear vinyl as adding black pigment to PVC always adds the risks of imperfections in the record due to the in-complete dispersion of the carbon black.

The double gatefold cover is perfectly restored to the original with relevant extra support in the cardboard structure to handle the heavier weight vinyl. The cover illustrations are tastefully re-printed on the record label. Unfortunately, as so often with record companies today, the weak link in the packaging is they try and save money by using a thin paper inner sleeve. This offers inadequate protection and high risk of marking the record surface when removed for playing. Very frustrating. I always replace this type of sleeve with a thicker, antistatic plastic coated paper sleeve.

The third and final Dio fronted studio album and for me its a hat trick of classic rock albums,in truth i love this as much as Rising,if you take Stargazer out of the equation you could argue this is a better more varied disc but thats for another day.

Opening with the anthemic title track(it should have been 'Kill The King') and the albums rockin from the off closely followed by the strutting 'Lady of the Lake' with sublime solo before 'LA Connection' kicks in ,'Gates of Babylon closed what was side 1 of the original vinyl and is an epic to rival 'Stargazer',all in all as good a quartet of tracks as your likely to hear,it gets better when 'Kill The King thunders in propelled along by Cozy Powells powerhouse drumming,'The Shed' is up next,it the weakest track although the opening minute or so from Blackmore still gives goosebumps while 'Sensitive To Light' is a precursor to the more commercial style that would surface in the future,which just leaves the beautiful 'Rainbow Eyes' a stunning ballad which hints at the area that Blackmore would eventually pursue with Blackmores Night.

I cant recommend this disc enough,i bought it the day it was released and couldnt believe all the negativity and disapointment expressed by fans at the time,depite the line up changes David Stone keyboards and Bob Daisley bass(although how much he played is debated as Blackmore played a fair amount on the album),the band never missed a beat.

Interesting re the gatefold sleeve photo,most fans spotted it during Rush's World tour 1980 it was in either the tour program or the word and pictures vol 1 book on sale,yet the press missed it for years.
