4.0 out of 5 stars On Stage Deluxe Edition 11 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First thing to note is the remastering on the On Stage album, which is very good. Cozy sounds great, and Tony and Jimmy are clear in the mix. If you have a previous remaster of this album, this one is still worth getting. I won't review the On Stage album itself - if you're reading this, I assume you're familiar with it. If you aren't, stop reading and click "Add to cart."

Now for the second disc - the labeling and booklet are incorrect. The bonus songs are not from Osaka; this is most of the Tokyo 12/16/76 evening show (only Stargazer and Still I'm Sad are missing). I've confirmed against both the Song Brothers and Mr. Peach sources; it's all Tokyo. The version of 16th Century Greensleeves from On Stage is entirely from this show, so you get the same version of this song twice (boo - hence the docked star from the rating). Didn't they listen to the tape and ask themselves "Doesn't that sound familiar?" Blues and Starstruck from this show are also on On Stage, so you get those twice as well. And why no Stargazer? They claim in the booklet that they couldn't find a version of it, but they have all the songs up to Stargazer, and the encore from later in the show. However, the version of Catch the Rainbow from this show is outstanding except for one little flub in the first "Bless me" section; I'm glad to finally have it in excellent sound. Mistreated isn't one of the better versions - Ritchie cuts the solo short. The Osaka versions are better, as is the Tokyo afternoon show version. Do You Close Your Eyes has never been one of my favorites, even more so when you're spending a couple of minutes listening to the band play the riff over and over because Ritchie was busy demolishing a cheap Strat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the Best! 24 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
Quite simply this is Blackmore and Dio at their best, not to mention fine contributions from the Bain-Powell-Carey trio. It was indeed Rainbow's classic line-up. Opening up with a powerful rendition of one of Rainbow's best songs, 'Kill the King' (after a fun 'Wizard of Oz' intro), they then move on to a terrific medley, the highlight of which is the Blackmore-Carey inspired 'Blues' piece. There are so many great performances on this album. The cover version of 'Mistreated' is way better than any version Deep Purple ever did but the creme de la creme has to be 'Catch the Rainbow'. This is a monster version of this track which includes a wailing Blackmore solo that must rate as one of his best. In the middle, the solo halts into momentary silence (you could hear a pin drop) before Ritchie kicks off again. Absolute genius. Dio's voice is seldom better and he is superb throughout, particularly during his inter-action with the crowd during 'Man on the Silver Mountain'. Other than the slight disappointing absence of the line-up's best track, 'Stargazer,' this live album is a masterpiece. Buy it, you won't be disappointed. Why Ritchie split up the 1976-77 line-up as soon as he did I'll never know.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Rainbow DELUXE indeed! 9 Nov 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
History - Blackmore left Purple, Bolin joined Purple, Purple imploded! All this in 12 months in the mid-seventies. Blackmore replaced the guitarist in a relatively unknown band called Elf and recorded one album. He then demolished the band and replaced everyone, except the singer; Ronnie James Dio. In came super drummer Cozy Powell, keyboardist Tony Carey and bassist Jimmy Bain. These five musicians recorded, what in my opinion is easily the greatest Rainbow studio album ever; Rising.

The deluxe edition - Many Rainbow fans felt a little shortchanged when the original On Stage album was issued; there was the fire of the band, working off each other, Blackmore having free reign to do whatever he wished, yet songs were left off, songs were seemingly cut, solo's ignored, and some songs patched together!! This latest release is excellent insofaras we get (nearly) six officially unreleased songs, plus the original songs. This is fine, the mix on the new songs (recorded in Osaka, Japan during 1976, according to the CD, but it was actually Tokyo!) is a huge improvement. There's a real ferocity from the start of Kill the King until the end of Do You Close Your Eyes. We get another version of Mistreated, Dio is damned good and makes the song his own. As a huge Purple fan he isn't quite as good as Coverdale on what is ostensibly a blues song, but he is still a superb vocalist. now the slight disappoinment, the "extra" version of Sixteenth Century Greensleeves is the same as the original album, just re-mixed, It sounds better, however it's a shame we aren't given another version! Next up is Catch the Rainbow, which I think part has been cut, but it is still over 18 minutes long. Penultimate extra is Man on the Silver Mountain, again though parts of this song were used on the original On Stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blackmore & Dio at their best 17 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
Though many edits from different tapes have contributed to the near perfect versions of this array of classic's, it is an essential for any Ritchie or Ronnie fan. Quite simply, you won't find either Blackmore or Dio in better form on any other product they have graced, hard to believe but I do rate this more than 'Made in Japan' as a live album. Why hasn't anyone released the Munich 77 footage on video to accompany this I don't know, it would serve justice to this classic lineup at their peak and show those of us who didn't witness this band just what we missed.
