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.

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.....

I must admit i've never understood the love that pours forth for this album,yes its good(in parts) flawed (in others).It was spliced together from various sources and i feel it kills the atmosphere.Highlights are the splendid intro/Kill The King opening and the wonderful 'Blues' interlude,'Catch The Raibow' has some moments of wonder but the rest is ok nothing inspired,never understood the need to do 'Mistreated',again its ok,will never beat Coverdale's versions,i remember back in the day it was one of the highest priced double albums ever and the general disapointment with it but it was all we had,it would be 3 decades almost before we got the real deal with the 3 Germany'76 discs and Munich 77.For me its not a neccesary purchase

I was very fortunate to seen the band live on the UK leg of the World Tour back in Sept 1976. This album was taken from Japanese and German concerts from this World Tour and released in 1977. I had the original vinyl but it got lost with various house moves over the years. I have been listening to the 1999 CD re-mastered version prior to purchasing this vinyl copy, which is not bad quality but for me vinyl will always be the preferred music format for listening to rock albums.

This album is a part of the Black on Black; rock classic, Rainbow vinyl series. The first 1000 pressings of each release are done on coloured vinyl. This release is white vinyl. The original cover has been beautifully restored and reinforced to carry the heavy vinyl disks. Great to read again the list of equipment they had for tour on the back cover of the album. Unfortunately like many vinyl LPs today they have used very thin paper inner sleeves that I rip to remove the record to limited the risk of scratching on removal and replace it with a heavier weight plastic covered, antistatic, paper inner sleeve. The weight of both vinyl records is 188g each. The album contains the original eight tracks released in 1977 over the two-vinyl albums. This makes sense in terms of optimised audio quality for the total running time. `Catch the Rainbow' (excellent vocals) and `Mistreated' (great guitar work) take up one full side each.

The audio quality over the whole album is excellent. The records are virtually flat with minimal surface noise. The sound is clean, clear and very sharp. Guitar is hard right and organ hard left with drums perfectly balance, thundering from both channels giving a wall of sound directly across the speakers. The vocals are crystal clear with lots of fine detail.
