Re: Favorite Rainbow Studio Album


Speed King, Child In Time, Highway Star, Kill The King and much, much more especially the majority of Blackmore´s Night songs. The first lines of Written In The Stars introduced all BN gigs 4 years before it became an actual song, the same goes for the intro of Way To Mandalay and all the live performed songs on Fires At Midnight.

Re: Favorite Rainbow Studio Album


That's right but I was not thinking about BN , just his rock career.

So we have : SP, CIT, HS, NoNoNo?, ALITB, Stargazer?, Kill The King.

What's next ?

Early 1976.... it's on the recordings from May 1976's pre-tour rehearsals (Tower Of Babel) and was in the live set from June 1976: [sign in to see URL]#1976

Damn, very near Rising recording !

Kill The King is obviously one of LLRNR highlight but I can't help thinking that if it would have been on Rising, this album would have become an absolute hard-rock masterpiece

Material from 'Shades Of' was played live before being recorded.... from 'In Rock'.... from 'Fireball' (including the 'cello' part from 'Fools' and 'The Mule' was done a few times before IG nailed the lyrics).... two from 'Machine Head'.... but not 'No No No'.

'Difficult To Cure' was played live for about two years before it was recorded.

Re: Favorite Rainbow Studio Album


 Seems that "Kill The King" was written sometime during the tour rehearsals which of course took place a couple of months after "Rising" was recorded in February. As has been said, May or June would be about right.

"Early lyrical versions were titled "Got To Get Away'...'That song was written especially for the stage show. We felt that we didn't have a song that was hard enough to open the show, so we put this song together. It's about a chess game - just the basic idea to checkmate the king or kill him. But you can read into it whatever you want." - Ronnie James Dio

"I was involved in the writing of that with Cozy, that was the first band thing we did. Had I still been in the band, I'd have got (a writing credit) for it" - Jimmy Bain. Going by the timing, that statement can be taken a few different ways! emoticon

Both quotes from "Rainbow Rising" by Roy Davies.

 You're welcome, Mr. MicStand. Now get out and buy Roy's book - now! As a matter of fact - buy two or three! And none of that "discounted" nonsense, either! emoticon (Roy needs the royalties!!) emoticon
