I had to have new copy of this. It was intended to be a one time solo project from Blackmore which apparently blossomed into an entirely seperate band from Deep Purple. There are some clear differences here betweenDP and Rainbow. Teh first being that this is pretty much Ritchie in control all the way through. While some songs are similar to DP the noticeable difference is classical influence, including the first recording of Ritchie on acoustic guitar. The album is strong all the way through. Especially impressive is the instrumental reworking of The Yardbirds 'Still I'm Sad' and the Hendrix-inspired 'CAth The Rainbow'. Dio's vocals are top notch on every cut. This album showcases some different sides of Ritchie's guitar playing and is my personal favorite Rainbow album. Many years later and even with the passing of Ronnie James Dio it still holds a place amongst greatest albums of the seventies if not of all time.

If you are a fan of heavy rock and early heavy metal this is something that should be in your collection. Between the vocals of Ronnie James Dio, who was just starting his serious metal career, and the taste of guitarist, Ritchie Blackmore, this is truly and epic CD. THis is one of my top twenty CDs of all times. I used to own it when I was in high school and bought it again.

I had gotten this for my cousins birthday & he absolutely loved it. At the time this was the only CD I could find of Ritchie Blackmore & it was perfect. He was really happy that I had found it so that made me happy. It came on time & wasn't damaged. Also if you like Ritchie Blackmore you might just like the band Blackmore's Night which is Ritchie Blackmore & his wife are the main singers for the band. Great band.

This was the alternative to mainstream back in the day , I like once in a while to hear a story with my music and not many did it better than R.J.D. Let's not forget a top 5 all time guitar playing wizard himself . Much more to say but I'd like to say if you like it in time you'll own all of them.

If your a fan of Ritchie Blackmore,or Ronnie James Dio,this is a great CD to add to the collection! Essentially,this is Elf feat. Ritchie,but is a great cd nonetheless. Being a HUGE fan of Ritchie myself this was a must-have purely on already having it on cassette,and needing to upgrade,but what a great collection of songs! Man on the silver mountain,16th century greensleeves,and Temple of the king,just to name a few. You can tell by listening,that Ritchie was out to prove that he could standout on his own,and he definitely proves it here. Great CD at a Great price! Long Live Ritchie Blackmore!
