Rainbow Rising Again

Details have been issued of Rainbow‘s Memories in Rock II, a 2CD+DVD Box-Set. This is from the 2017 UK concerts, specifically the Birmingham and Glasgow shows. It does lack a couple of songs from the tour, Still I’m Sad (only done at London) and Burn. Disc three is mostly a set of filmed interviews many of which have been on YouTube already. The label have also put a promo video up online :


Tim Summers who alerted me to this says he’s spotted himself on the film and will be seeking his royalties! I suspect he’ll be out of luck as venues usually have a “you agree to being filmed” notice on the doors these days. There is also a new studio track at the end of disc two for some reason, albeit similar to the last two they’ve issued in that it’s synth drums etc. Thanks also to Matthew Kean.  Dates for this year in Russia are on our diary page.

    Sadly….totally waste of Ritchie’s name! Candice’s Rainbow!

    There’s a preview of Waiting for a Sign on YouTube. It doesn’t seem very computerised – the bass sounds like classic Bob Nouveau. The song itself is classic Rainbow blues, with a very good vocal from Ronnie R. Overall, it reminds me of Cold Hearted Woman (Doogie Rainbow) and Whitesnake’s Too Many Tears. Very distinctive guitar solo. If you don’t go in expecting Rising-style drama, you’ll enjoy it.

    Dear oh dear is this pointless or what?

    I presume Burn and Still I’m Sad will appear on a Japanese special edition at some point …….

    Have you heard the new song? A review would be useful. Disappointing if drum machine/synth again.
