  LONG AWAITED DELUXE REISSUES OF RAINBOW ALBUMS SET FOR RELEASE THIS NOVEMBER
25th October 2012



rainbow



Rainbow are set to release Deluxe Reissues of 'On Stage' and 'Long Live Rock N' Roll' this November.

Rainbow, lead by guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, became synonymous with some of the most well regarded and popular charting rock songs of the seventies and eighties. From 'Stargazer' and 'Man On The Silver Mountain' to 'All Night Long', 'Long Live Rock And Roll' and 'Since You Been Gone', each year in the decade of Rainbow was marked by some of the best songs and performances captured both on record and in concert.

Passing through the band were some of the best the genre had to offer. Vocalists Ronnie James Dio and Graham Bonnet, bass player and producer Roger Glover and drummer Cozy Powell, each brought their individual talent to the table to record some of rock's best loved hard rock on those albums and singles.

'On Stage' is a live album originally released in 1977. The album was recorded live over several German and Japanese dates in late 1976 during the 'Rising' world tour. Producer Martin Birch spliced many of the tracks together from different dates.

The recording features the customary introduction to a Rainbow show – the classic quote from The Wizard Of Oz: "Toto: I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore. We must be over the rainbow!" with the last word repeated as an echo. Then the actual band plays a musical phrase from the song 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' before breaking into 'Kill The King'.

'Long Live Rock 'n' Roll' is the third studio album released in 1978. This was the last Rainbow album to feature Ronnie James Dio on vocals.
