The year was 1977. Guitarist Ritchie Blackmore had left Deep Purple in '75 to form Rainbow with vocalist Ronnie James Dio and drummer Cozy Powell (he'd break up Rainbow to rejoin DP in '83).This show, in front of a wildly enthusiastic German audience, is the only known live document of this lineup. The disc (a two-CD set of this show was released in June) includes eight complete performances-"Kill The King," "Mistreated," Sixteenth Century Greensleeves," "Catch The Rainbow," "Long Live Rock'n'Roll," Man On The Silver Mountain," "Still I'm Sad," "Do You Close Your Eyes"-spanning 100 minutes. Blackmore almost didn't make the show. He had to be literally smuggled out of Austria upon being detained by police there.
