  • This is a GREAT live album. The sound quality is excellent, Martin Birch is a producing genius. The playing is equally brilliant, and Blackmore tears it to pieces on the guitar. Dio’s voice is powerful as usual, and blows me away.This album came out after the self-titled “Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow” and “Rising,” and before “Long Live Rock ‘N’ Roll.” That being said, it is quite strange that there is only one song from the very album they were touring for! It is “Starstruck” from the Rising album, and they don’t even play the whole song: they do a little bit of it in the middle of “Man on the Silver Mountain.” Instead of promoting their newest release, they included 4 songs from their debut, a cover of Deep Purple’s “Mistreated,” and a song that would later appear on the Long Live Rock ‘N’ Roll album (“Kill the King”).Basically, for all the songs except for “Kill the King,” they jam on the songs for like 10+ minutes each. Need I say that this is awesome? I love listening to Blackmore play the guitar.However, the best part of the album is at the end of “Man on the Silver Mountain” when Dio goes “You’re all the maaan!!!” It’s cool. If you are a fan of Rainbow, Dio or Ritchie Blackmore, you will not be disappointed. If you are not, then start with something else (Rainbow Rising, Black Sabbath’s Heaven and Hell, and Deep Purple’s Machine Head, respectively).
