Re: New Rainbow box set


Mine came yesterday.

Just to see/hear Ritchie in his prime is glorious
Great to see Donnington although it's heavily edited.

Haha! I was just listening to BOOS and during the bridge to Make Your Move, there is a very familiar sounding part.

Listen to Make Your Move then listen to Slow Train from the Fireball Anniversary cd... of course, Slow Train also morphed from Grabsplatter... emoticon

Got it yesterday too.

Cool box set. I've listen to the three first cd's and there are some real goodies indeed emoticon

I'm glad now I didn't get the deluxe editions back then.

Oh I have to say the Down to Earth Deluxe is well worth it.

Re: New Rainbow box set


Just listening to disc 2 of the box set. A couple of comments.

Digging the rehearsal take of Do You Close Your Eyes, which is like a lounge version. This is the Daisley-Stone line-up. It is very mellow and soft, as there is no guitar. Dio half-speaks the lyrics, and you get to hear Daisley's bass and vocals very well, as well as Stone's keys.

The same goes for Still I'm Sad from the same Bob Daisley rehearsal tape. Very interesting. Now Blackmore is present, too.

Although the 1975-76 shows are by far my favourites live stuff from Rainbow, the next line-up was almost as good. This set includes a devastating 20+ minute live version of Catch the Rainbow from January 1978. The gig is considered as a classic by diehards. The recording is probably from Cozy's collection, and is of quite rough soundboard quality, distorted and with overload. Here it is, regarless, possible to hear Daisley's bass work, which is very good.

Re: New Rainbow box set


Daisley was kinda under used in Rainbow he was a great song writer too as the early Ozzy albums among many others demonstrate.

I agree, and add to that Jimmy Bain's creative work with Dio (the band) and Phil Lynott solo and one wanders what Rainbow might have developed into 1977 had Jimmy remained.

-and listening to Tony Carey's solo albums the thought stuck me that he would have fitted in well with the JLT /AOR years. emoticon

Yeah, I never understood why Ritchie gave Jimmy the boot? I mean, if he hadn't, Bob wouldn't have entered the picture, but like it was said, Jimmy's talents were put to good use with Phil, Ronnie and those albums with Brian Robertson.

I believe both Carey and Bain were fired because of character reasons, not musical.
