Format: Audio CD
This collection does a wonderful job of showing a band going from one point of view to another. Ronnie James Dio brought a more dark-agish and cutting edge approach; while Joe Lynn Turner brought a more soulfull and meloncholic approach. To go from, "The Man on the Silver Mountain," to "Street of Dreams," is a wonderful and enjoyable ride to any ears.

I'll never forget the day that I bought this CD at Shopko and it was the day just before my senior graduation and I had a lot of fun times listening to this album, I originally bought this album for 'Man on the Silver Mountain' but when I listened to the rest of the songs, I was amazed.
The songs from Rainbow's debut album are the aforementioned 'Man on the Silver Mountain' and a beautiful ballad 'Catch the Rainbow', both of those songs are classics and the former should've been another classic like Deep Purple's 'Smoke on the Water', 'Woman From Tokyo' and 'Highway Star'.
The songs from their second album Rainbow Rising are 'Starstruck' and 'Stargazer' which clocks in at over 8 minutes, that song is one hell of a song and it could've easily been a Deep Purple classic.
The songs from Long Live Rock 'N' Roll and it would also be Ronnie James Dio's final album with Rainbow ( before he would replace the immortal Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath) and the songs for this album are the title track, 'Kill The King' and 'Gates of Babylon' I also felt that 'LA Connection' should've been included for this album.
Next up is Down to Earth which is the first and only album to feature Graham Bonnet on vocals and he would later join MSG and Alcatrazz, the whole album isn't that great but it contains two very good songs, the radio staple 'Since You Been Gone' and 'All Night Long' (not to be confused with Joe Walsh's version).
The songs for Rainbow's fifth studio album called Difficult to Cure are 'I Surrender' (Rainbow's biggest hit in England) and 'Can't Happen Here', this album would be Joe Lynn Turner's first album with Rainbow.

this is the best greatist hits cd i ever heard.every track is great except for can't let you go,but even this song is o.k.ritchie blackmore is a great guitarist and it shows on this cd.ronnie james dio sings some of his greatist songs on this album.man on the silver mountain,gates of babylon and long live rock and roll is just as good as anything he recorded with black sabbath or his own band.graham bonnet sings only two songs on this album but they are the best tracks on this cd,the songs are since you been gone and all night long.joe lynn turner sings the last 5 tracks on this cd.out of the three vocalists on this cd,turner is proberly the worst.even though songs like can't happen here,jealous lover and power are[powerful].this cd is a must have for all hard rock fans.

This cd is a must have for Deep Purple fans; if you love hard rock/heavy metal, then check it out as well, too. Rainbow is often criticized as a Deep Purple-lite band. Not true. Ritchie Blackmore pursued a different sound with this band, and while his guitar is unmistakable, the songs explore themes from medieval/magic to love and romance. Gillan (of Deep Purple) often sang of different themes.
I don't have a complaint with any of the songs; they're all appealing, and the early songs are quite different from the 80's era music. All three vocalists delivered. I am of the (perhaps unpopular) opinion that Joe Lynn Turner's vocals are better than Ronnie James Dio's. If you're not a big fan of the gothic sound, certainly don't let that deter you from this album. The introduction of Graham Bonnet (on song 8, here) brought an end to that era. Similarly, if the gothic sound is what you crave, there are seven wonderful songs to satisfy that urge. I've heard people argue that Turner brought too much of a mainstream appeal to the band. This may be true, but the songs are no less appealing. "Stone Cold" conveys musically all of the emotion it delivers lyrically. So to, "Street of Dreams" is a dramatic anthem of break-up songs.
This album is well worth a listen-to. There is something to please all on it, and Ritchie Blackmore's guitar work is not to be missed.

This compilation consist of two parts: 1. When Dio was vocalist 2.When he wasn't Rainbow's vocalist.
1. Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow isn't so good album but there's three good tracks: "Man on the Silver Mountain", a classic ballad "Catch the Rainbow"...and "Sixteeth Century Greensleeves", it's amazing that this track isn't in the very best of.
Rainbow Rising is better album. "Starstruck" and an ever-green "Stargazer" (very Long track) which shows how good Dio can sing. But where's "Tarot Woman"? It should be here. It's so magical track.
Rainbow's third album "Long Live rock'n'roll" is full of good hard rock track: "Gates of Babylon" (mystic song), "Kill the King" (very fast one) and the title track. Well chosen tracks.
2.
The rest of the tracks are good choices. "Since You Been Gone", "All Night Long", "Street of Dreams", "Stone Cold" and especailly very rocking and enjoyable "I Surrender" are very rocking tracks!
