where the audio is so brilliantly great.The best thing about the Deluxe versions of these albums, is that it is the
next best thing to getting the Japanese pressings. The German discs that I have bought so far have packaging made
in other parts of the EU, but the discs are the key usually. The presentation has great packaging, pictures, and a
superb booklet. The New York Mix is not the greatest all-round mix, but if you want a mix that centres on the
guitar on vocals, then the NY mix works. The best all round mix is the LA mix since it has the NY sound with the
depth of the Bass into the mix. The Rough mix on disc two comes very close to being as good as the LA mix, but
fails on some level. If you want a great audio experience, put these discs on a 5.1 so that the channels will flesh
out, even though the mix is stereo ( I know that, okay certain persons) but I have software that uses the 5.1
channel to the optimum on the PC, and you do something similar on a TV surround sound. All in all these RAINBOW
discs are great. Overall my favorite all over sound is LONG LIVE ROCK AND ROLL, but this is still excellent, and
the package is great for fans, and the Booklet tells part of the story for this CD, a great product, and definitely
the LA Mix makes a great Car CD for those who need that in their travels.
Just a minor note; The sounds you can hear developing in RAINBOW were starting to come around in the latter part of DEEP PURPLE, and as the Booklet notes, Blackmore learning the Cello helped him expand his composing skills and find a sound for some of his tonal variations that were changing. Ever the temperamental artist, it was probably almost inevitable that Blackmore wind up playing in his current band, BLACKMORES NIGHT which has some skillful guitar work as well as brilliant ideas.
From the semi-haunting keyboard intro of "Tarot Woman" to the sweeping maelstrom of sound which is "Stargazer" this album is a masterpiece. Much of this album takes me back a long way and to distant places, kind of the way some Zeppelin does, like "Kashmir".
The immensity of the music and the modes used in crafting the songs gives this album a sense of the sum being greater than all of its parts. This group of musicians came together and created a true gem. In my opinion they had never crafted anything as amazing before this, and none would do so afterward. Although some may disagree, I believe this was the true pinnacle of their craftsmanship, Ronnie and Ritchie, two of the greatest wizards of music.
Listen to this album and learn to love it. Wait,... what's that ...? Oh, some thing's calling me back . . . . . . . .
with that said, one of the best Rock guitarists ever to live and "the best" vocalist ever to sing a Rock n Roll
song together was enough to change me in 1976 when i heard it at Trinity in my Freshman year in San
Antonio. just Outstanding riffs, melodies, thought patterns .....
