RAINBOW [WITH RICHIE BLACKMORE]
Not the best-sounding
souvenir from Rainbows first burst of touring, but certainly one
of the best shows, When Evening Falls rounds up a truly hot blooded
romp through the bands entire repertoire of the day
surprises (unless you count the snatch of "Jingle Bells" before
the intro tape kicks in), but no disappointments either. "Mistreated,"
rolling in just two songs into the show, is as majestic as it ought to
be, "16th Century Greensleeves" as evocative, and
Cozy Powell remains one of the few drummers on the planet who could launch
into a drum solo that didnt send most right-thinking onlookers rushing
for the bar.
