4 stars Great to see Rainbow added to Progressive archives. Ritchie Blacmore exstending the muscle and creativity from Deep Purple to Rainbow. No doubt RB is the key character in the Rainbow fold but the vocalist Ronnie James Dio has a phenomenally powerful voice backed up by the thumping solid percussion from the late Cozy Powell. Another key feature on Rainbow Rising are the grand keyboards, layers and layers of them, played very astutely by Tony Carey. The whole album is great and each track is strong. My personal favourites would be ' Tarot Woman' especially the beginning, ' Do You Close Your Eyes'.....when you are making LOVE and the awesome ' A Light In The Black'. Four and a half stars to be accurate, excellent composition and a must have for any progressive rock enthusiast.
