Live Album On 180g Vinyl Double LP!

This live album was recorded at Munich Olympiahalle, Germany on October 20, 1977 in Munich featuring the lineup of Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio, Cozy Powell, Bob Daisley and Dave Stone. This set is not from the same tour that produced the previously released live album "On Stage" and features a different line up (bass player and keyboardist change).

"Oh Yeah. When Rainbow's On Stage album was released in 1977, it felt like a flat representation of what the band were capable of live. With a few personnel changes, the group went out on tour in 1977 to support a live album -- the membership changes prevented them form working on a third studio album at the time. This live document is a complete live concert without any real production. It's simply the band playing their asses off in October 1977. Here are Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio, Cozy Powell, Bob Daisley, and David Stone, roaring through a set unencumbered. While the tracks closely resemble those on the live Rainbow album, they run in a different order (and alas, "Stargazer" is still not present; it wasn't played on this night). The "Sixteenth Century Greensleeves" played here (clocking in at eight-and-21-seconds) shreds the On Stage version, as does the thrashing opener "Kill the King." Both of these cuts were played faster and louder than anything the Sex Pistols did that year. "Catch the Rainbow" catches fire about seven-and-a-half minutes in, and Blackmore just takes off prodded on by Powell, and the cut doesn't end until ten minutes after that. The second disc is where the real treasure lies in perhaps the best rendition of "Man on the Silver Mountain," which clocks in at a whopping fourteen-and-a-half minutes, followed by a 25-minute "Still I'm Sad," only to be closed out with a smoking "Do You Close Your Eyes." Blackmore's playing, hell, the whole band's, is just full-on stun. It's tight, incredibly fast, and unfettered raw Rainbow. This is the deliverance on the promise of '70s hard rock. Get this one. No matter what; just get it." - Thom Jurek,
