Editorial Reviews

In April 1984 Ritchie Blackmore and Roger Glover decided to finish Rainbow and to wake up Deep Purple. Finally they give a spectacular last tour of Blackmore's Rainbow with two shows in the famous 'Budokan Hall' in Tokyo. This DVD contains official recordings from Japanese television.

DVD inside is not Rainbow from 1986 but not 1995, reason why they goofed?, it was never official in the first place.

The actual program content on this DVD (at least on the DVD I received) is not even remotely what is advertised.

Bootleg quality? In regards to what a bootleg tape. I don't know what kind of equipment the reviewer has who had nothing but bad things to say about this DVD and it seems anyother one he reviews, but the quality is excellent, not as good as Munich 77 which is almost the Holy Grail of DVD concerts, but it is excellent. The sound quality is better than excellent. It's almost two hours long, every Blackmore solo is shown from the front. Turner singing Catch the Rainbow was excellent.

If you like Rainbow and Blackmore, you will love this DVD. The other reviewer must have been watching on a 13 inch black and white tv and listening on AM Radio to the sound.

I had to further comment on the response to the post that diagrees with me. Every time someone buys a bootleg concert, the band doesnt get paid. Maybe other bands won't want to put out their classic concerts, if they know most people will steal it. I don't mind paying 20 Dollars to see the greatest musicians "ever" perform live. Blackmore will go down in history as an equivalent to Bach or Beethoven. If you don't want to spend 20 dollars to see him perform, there is something wrong with you.

This is not the Final Rainbow from Japan 1984 with Joe Lynn Turner - this a a bootleg of the Rockpalast show from
1995 with Doogie White on vocals from Germany. The listing here and even the DVD box pictures and track listing
indicate that it is the 1984 JLT Japan show, but the DVD within contains the 1995 Rockpalast Doogie show - and
very, very poor quality as well. I already own a bootleg of the 1995 Rockpalast show that is MUCH better quality
that what I received - in fact, you can find better quality and complete coverage of the 1995 Rainbow RockPalast
show on youtube. Not only is it completely the wrong show, the quality is horrendous with a dark grainy picture
and lost, ambient audio.

Somebody somewhere has screwed this up big time.

Buyer Beware.

The actual program content on this DVD (at least on the DVD I received) is not even remotely what is advertised.

Purportedly on offer here is a DVD of an April 1984 Rainbow performance (with Joe Lynn Turner on vocals) recorded in Tokyo, Japan. At least that's what the the text on the DVD box art states. Even the photos accompanying that text on the DVD box art likewise appear to be from that 1984 concert, depicting Turner singing and Roger Glover on bass (both of whom were a part of that era's lineup of the band).

HOWEVER... when I pop the DVD I received from Amazon into my player, what do I see? Not that 1984 Japan performance with Joe Lynn Turner. No. Instead, and quite unaccountably, I see a completely different concert, from a completely different era of the band, with a completely different personnel lineup.

Despite the fact that even the colorful artwork printed upon the face of the DVD disk itself again represents itself as "Live In Japan 1984" (and again features those same Turner-era photos), when actually played back on my TV this DVD presents a circa 1995 (or subsequent) performance of the latter-day and short-lived Rainbow incarnation featuring Doogie White on vocals (a lineup formed right after Ritchie Blackmore's final departure from Deep Purple, and right before he subsequently abandoned Rainbow altogether and instead formed Blackmore's Night).

The video image quality of this DVD is also quite poor, but that's a separate issue altogether. The big problem is that this DVD does not contain the concert it says it contains.

I read the reviews about receiving the wrong concert footage. That stinks. I did receive the correct concert but it gets cut off with a few minutes left of the last song (Smoke on the Water). That was a little disappointing but overall I am very pleased with this concert DVD. I've never seen any footage of JLT with Rainbow so I was giddy when I received this for Father's Day. I think the quality is great considering how old it is. It is no Live After Death (1985 Iron Maiden concert) kind of quality but it was decent enough. I was also pleased with the camerawork. I figured I'd get one (maybe two if I was lucky) cameras filming the show. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized there were many cameras and some great angles and close-ups. The sound is great too, again considering it is from 1984. JLT sounds fantastic at first but his voice starts to wane a bit as the show goes on. I'm not complaining, just telling it like it is. Overall I think the show was great considering how rare it is. If you are a BIG fan of the JLT-era Rainbow, this DVD is for you. If you simply tolerated the JLT era, then don't buy the DVD.
