Rainbow Live In Germany 1976

Live In Germany 1976 is an archive released live album by hard rock band Rainbow.

This was recorded in 1976 on the Rainbow Raising world tour and was released in 1990.

This pulls the best from four concerts in Germany:

Cologne on 25 September 1976
Düsseldorf 27 September 1976
Nuremberg 28 September 1976
Munich 29 September 1976

The full recordings of three of these concerts – Cologne, Düsseldorf and Munich – have since been bundled together and released in Japan as Deutschland Tournee. The three concerts have been released separately elsewhere.

Rainbow Final Vinyl

Final Vinyl is a compilation album from Rainbow that mainly features live tracks focusing on the time when the group moved into pop-rock in the 80s.

The Rainbow of Since You’ve Been Gone and I Surrender is very different from the hard rock group that Ritchie Blackmore formed straight after leaving Deep Purple.

As well as live versions of the popular Rainbow songs, there are also a few studio rarities.

Rainbow On Stage 1976

On Stage is the first live album by Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow featuring Ronnie James Dio’s singing and Cozy Powell on drums recorded in December 1976 in Germany & Japan.

For me, the Rainbow of Rainbow Rising is the classic line up and are a worthy follow on band to Deep Purple.
