This is Rainbow's Long Live Rock 'n' Roll Deluxe Edition double cd.
If you are prepared to continue reading this post, you will surely know how much this album means to you. The content and packaging of this double cd for me is worth it to buy again this album.
Rainbow songs colour my whole life, I guess its true for some of you too.
An album that got everything from fast and heavy to slow and sadness, from the evil mystic of Gates of Babylon to the sorrow of lost love of Rainbow Eyes.
The very last time Ritchie Blackmore, Cozy Powell and Ronnie James Dio create magic together.
On this album the bass player is Bob Daisley, who after this formed up Blizzard Of Ozz with Ozzy Osbourne and Randy Rhoads and then continue with other famous names bands.
For many of you reading this, how many hundreds? possibly thousand times you have listen and singalong to KILL THE KING, Gates Of Babylon, the title track, and Rainbow Eyes. Plus others like Sensitive to Light, the shed, LA connection, and Lady of the Lake.
So my one liner on CD1 that we all know so well. " Still as awesome, exciting, devilly, and tragic and beautiful and wonderfully brilliant music , but now remastered and louder ", so I can listen better :-)
So next CD2. Total of 14 songs.
Rough Mixes of the seven songs excluding Gates Of Babylon.
The rough mixes of LLRnR is not really rare with bootlegs and as even youtube has it way before this, but this is the first time its released officially.
- Gates of Babylon is not included because it was not written and finished when the rough mix was done.
- Rainbow Eyes is completely different because it was re-recorded, and the finished product is one of the most beautiful song ever.
Shepperton Film Studios Rehearsal is rehearsal in preparation for a tour.
- Long Live Rock N Roll has already transformed into a complete extended live monster.
- Kill The King on this version is bass-heaven.
Don Kirshner's Rock Concert is I think using of studio tracks with Dio singing live
I think its for some tv show total of 5 songs with 2 outtakes.
The booklet has a long essay and thick with lots of nice photos. Telling the story of the musical chairs of Rainbow, Tony Carey story is in the booklet, I never knew LA Connection was written on his escape and departure from the band from the evil cluthes of Blackmore's pranks haha.
Really interesting to read about all the evilness and horror and ghostly and satanic situation they encounter during recording session in this French studio.
its a good read that makes the hair on my neck stand actually.
