Editorial Reviews

The Rainbow Band was an early 70s Elektra album, but with a big Indian influence. Guest musicians include Oregon's Colin Wolcott & Darius Brubeck. The vinyl of this album goes for big bucks so fans can finally get this on CD for the first time anywhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flashback June 3, 2011
By Gregory
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was intrigued and excited to find this music available on CD. It was like finding an old friend and took me back to the seventies. It is an blend of hindu, folk, and country music and features Colin Walcott (fabulous musician who specialized in tabla & sitar, but could make music from anything) on some tracks. Not for everybody, but if you have a true hippie heart you will enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice acid folk July 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is very nice acid folk with strong middle-eastern influences. Imagine a cross between Incredible String Band and Quintessence. Has nice playing and singing throughout, and a member of the world music/jazz band Oregon appears as a guest. A bit dated perhaps, but a nice listen for fans of hippie folk/rock.

1.0 out of 5 stars Potheads on the loose, 1971 August 31, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Grade "A" CC (crass crap) hippie duo who released one album on Elektra aside of mainstream catalogue (the label, founded in 1950, was well known for its world music, ethnic, folk, tribal, educational, reference and other weirdo recordings long before we all were declared multi-cultural. As everybody knows, Jac Holzman had a weak spot for oddities, just like Ahmet Ertegun had fine jazz addiction).
The album (1971) is as phony as they could only come (even a soundtrack for B-rate Bollywood movie is more authentic), and the music might be taken seriously in two cases only:
(a) provided that you are music critic yourself; (b) provided that you've happily reached the last stage of dementia. Jokes aside, the music is not so bad, it's rather pleasant even, but... But WTF they just don't shut up!? Two founding members, Mahesh (the one with moronic grin faking the state of nirvana) and Pavarthi* (the other, in the last degree of hysteria or cold turkey - also occurs in vegetarians), hiding the identities under the monikers - quite wise!, borrowed few thoughts from Kindergarten Guide to Hindu Mythology In Pictures to concoct a concept of a bad and unsavory trip. In order to give credibility to the whole affair, Colin Walcott (of Paul Winter Consort and Oregon fame, misspelt on the credits for this re-issue) was promptly recruited, next to Darius Brubeck (on the children of the genius the Nature usually takes a break) and a tribe of home-grown Hindus with phony names of Anandi, Shiva, Nirmala, Lalitha... The producer also chose to appear under a moniker, Zachari & Sri Enterprises (very commendable), while Jac Holzman blessed the release under his own name (that was not so wise of him, because after that he had to sell Electra out).
