Guiltless Pleasures: Rainbow – Part I

10 May 2014 @ 18:58

While I was out driving today, I played an old Rainbow CD I had made about a decade ago and was reminded just why I think they were one of the best Rock And Roll bands of all time.

The band had two distinct periods, as far as I’m concerned: when Ronnie James Dio was lead singer and Post-Dio.

This week I intend to honor the Post-Dio Period and next weekend, the anniversary of Ronnie’s death, I’ll pay tribute to his work with the band.

-Something’s come over me / And I don’t know what to feel…

-So I live for the night…

-And I thought I knew you so well…

-Ever since you’ve been gone…

-I can’t end Part I without giving you a taste of Ronnie James Dio…

Long Live Rock ‘N’ Roll

    Aw geez, now I gotta go down to the basement, find where I buried my LP’s, see if I can hook up the turntable, go buy some “Old Milwaukee’s”, and listen to “Rainbow Rising” and “Down to Earth”. I’ll chase it with a little “Head East-Flat as a Pancake” and maybe some “Live at Budokan”.

    Boy, the wife’s gonna be pissed at you guys.

    Oh, and you need to link “Can’t Happen Here” and “All Night Long” videos.

    I have a bunch of Rainbow on the MP3 player. Funny thing is, listening to lyrics of Can’t happen Here highlights a whole bunch of early 80’s leftism. Song rocks, lyrics not so much.

      Post-Dio lyrics, I believe. Ronnie James was more on our side.
