to call this a blast from the past is no understatement.
all the songs i used to love in the '80s, like "catch the rainow", "rainbow eyes", "stone cold", "can't let you go" & also some elaborate mr blackmore guitar solos,
i was curious to revisit this rainbow back catalogue, & i wasn't disasappointed, they sounded as good as i remembered,
all the dio collaborations i loved, & also joe lynn turner, i always loved his soulful vocals, i saw rainbow live in the late '80s & it was a great gig, i also witnessed a dio gig & this guy also earnt his chips!
listening to all this nostalgia makes me sad for what music does not provide today, ie, atmosphere, soul, colour, inspiration, & just pure goddam enjoyment.
sorry to be an '80s bore, but to me, that was when music was music! don't get me wrong, i love a lot of today's acts, but lets face facts. a hella lot is inspired from way back then.....
