not bad, but just a taste of greatness
a very solid debut. but 'rainbow rising' & 'llrnr' proved to be Rainbow's crowning moments.

blackmore and dio, what can i say
Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow album for sale this album is timeless. it really projects what was going on in the seventies. kind of like hippie music with some great songwriting. ritchie was not quite in full mid-evil writing yet. the best songs that i like are self portrait, snake charmer, black sheep of the family,still i'm sad. i think this is the best dio has sounded to. not to raunchy like his solo stuff. he has to sing more than just scream. and of course ritchie is at his best, i know he commented on getting better musicians for rising but i really think these guys do just as good as a job on this album. they really changed to more of a heavy and more mid-evil sound after this album, at least on rising and long live rock n roll, they are also great records. hope you enjoyed my review. cya.

Still the Best Rainbow album!
Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow CD music The debut album of Rainbow marked a classic pairing of Deep Purple guitarist, Ritchie Blackmore, and Elf lead vocalist, Ronnie James Dio. This album features some of the best Rainbow songs: "Man on a Silver Mountain," "Sixteen Century Greensleeves," "Temple of the King," and "Catch the Rainbow." There's also a fantastic instrumental cover version of the Yardbirds' "Still I'm Sad." Though Dio sometimes becomes too moody in his lyrics ("Self Portrait," for example), overall he crafts interesting lyrical themes that he sings with vigor. This remains one of the highlight albums of 1970s hard rock.

only one duff song!
Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow buy CD music Is it really 32 years since this album was released?This album contains 3 classic Rainbow songs,"man on the silver mountain","catch the rainbow" and "sixteenth century greensleeves" One of my favourite tracks now, is "the temple of the king",perhaps because the other 3 i have listed have been played too death over the years, on compilations etc. The only real stinker is "if you don't like rock and roll"

you can't stop Rainbow's turning
Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow songs this is a good debut. while it doesn't much of the Dio charm (although it has his lyrics... lol) it is still full of classics. There is a small amount of filler (Snake Charmer, Temple of the King) and some good but bland (Still I'm Sad and others) but there are greats like "Catch the Rainbow", "Self-Potrait", "Black Sheep of the Family", and of course "Man on the Silver Mountain"
