Rainbow - Anthology (2009) Retail CD
Most of this set is material which will be familiar and readily available to Rainbow fans, but the gems of this anthology are two tracks recorded "live" featuring Joe Lynn Turner, and one with Graham Bonnet.
The JLT era tracks were previously available on the b-side of the 12" single Can't Let You Go, and were apparently recorded live, however a distinct polish and tightness to the tracks, plus complete absence of audience noise suggests they may be from a soundcheck. Nonetheless they are superb renditions of firstly Stranded, then All Night Long, the latter a good blend of a faster and moremore… aggressive sounding track than the Down to Earth studio version, but with the smoother vocals of JLT. Ritchie's guitar tone is especially good on these tracks.
The Graham Bonnet track is Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, from his (and Cozy's) last live outing with Rainbow at the inaugural Monsters of Rock in 1980. Just as Ritchie cranks up a rather crackly guitar and the whole band pitch in for the second verse, GB blasts into a lung tearing high E in full voice - "one louder" and higher than his trademark top D which features in many tracks from his career - quite a feat given this was the second last song of a lengthy set.
It's a pity this represents only the 4th track from that set to be officially released, and only 3 of which are out on CD (Stargazer is only available on the vinyl Monsters of Rock compilation album). Hopefully some day the whole set will become available, coupled with (we can only hope) a full version of the gig on film to compensate for the poorly edited 30 minute BBC Rock Week special which aired at the time.
