We have a good collection of live recording by Rainbow from their Ronnie James Dio period in 1976 and 1977 following the Rainbow Rising studio album. It’s a shame that the set lists show little variation because tracks are repeated time after time. Deep Purple had the same problem.
For avid Ritchie Blackmore fans, there is interest in spotting the small differences in the guitar solos but for the rest of us, one of these live albums is probably enough. I also recommend the first two studio albums – Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow and Rainbow Rising.
This offers the interesting option of having say On Stage on CD and Munich 1977 as a DVD giving you different experiences.
