bletch - damn to hell those marketing men.
Not every live recorded gig is a good one.
Not every live performance is a great one.
If you love Rainbow, you'll love this but it really isn't that special. It's a nice gig but not one I'm going to be going back to visit too often.. maybe when it rolls around on the ipod during a random setting

most rainbow fans tend to fall into two catagories those who prefer the harder rainbow sound of Dio & Bonnett and those who prefer the AOR sound of the Turner era. My first ever album was "Down to Earth" followed a close second by "long live Rock and Roll" this album gets it just right! The reformed rainbow of the nineties didnt appeal at first this was possibly influenced by Mr Turner wearing a wig at the gig in Cardiff ---- and then i stumbled upon an interview with doogie white - if you havnt seen it i suggest you look at "Inside Rainbow 1979-1997 " available from Amazon. This cd recording and correct me please if wrong has previously been released as a DVD and the quality is as good as the dvd so please ignore any reviews that say that this is like a bootleg copy - it is an accurate account of the rockplas concert and shows just how good Rainbow became again if only for one album although doogie will tell you that technically he was the longest serving vocalist! as i may have previously stated on other reviews any "new "music by Mr blackmore is always welcome perhaps even an offical release from the Monsters of Rock in 1980 - we can only hope until then sit back and enjoy Ritchie at his best listen to all the tracks and if you do watch the dvd just see how good this version of rainbow were and the encore to smoke on the water - all the band together as one

This line up of Rainbow has been much overlooked but this release demonstrates what an excellent band they were. Keep your mind open and listen.

Not another Rainbow live cd or dvd. But : This is the last great performance with many songs - epic songs and an up to date quality hard rock sound of the 1990s something very nice and odd for a Rainbow product the other being Stranger in as all album. For me it is their best live ever. It is a strictly personal thing I tend to have with Mr Blackmore's discography. True hard rock fans already have ordered it anyway.

Cool setlist, Blackmore is on form, and Doogie White sounds much better live than Turner ever did (though a far cry from the heights of Dio). On its own, this would be a three star release. A good curio for any Rainbow fan....

BUT....

This release is exactly the same as the bootleg that's been around for years. The way to tell is on Spotlight Kid. The bootleg, about half way through, has some woman singing in the background (no, not Candice) from another TV show on another channel. This is a defect from when the original bootleg recording was made. It sounds like something from World War II, and is ammusing, but most intrusive. What this indicates is that the people releasing this album HAVE NOT gone back to the original multi-track masters. They've just taken the bootleg that already exists for free and are now charging for it. There is no difference in quality between this and the bootleg, bar this is a bit louder due to the mastering.

Avoid, until someone releases the proper version of this actually quite good show.

Needs a few listens but grows and grows, Ritchie as great as ever and Doogie Whites vocals have such a range and power for a live act that's hard to compete with by anyone.
