  • As another mentioned, it would be great to have more from Rainbow, especially more of the era spanning 1980-1984. It was a bit of a catch 22 to see Ritchie Blackmore return to Deep Purple late in 1984, even though it produced the exceptional “Perfect Strangers” album. I once had “Finyl Vinyl” on cassette tape, album, and on CD, all at once! I don’t really know how that happened but it is truly a great compilation. “Spotlight Kid”, “I Surrender” and “Street of Dreams” are much better live than their respective studio versions. Perhaps, though, the “Japan Tour 84″ CD ought to be re-released to do the Blackmore, Turner, Glover, Burgi, and Rosenthal line-up justice. What really catches the listener is just how good Chuck Burgi is on drums. A fast and furious drummer with remarkable precision.
