Reissues of Rainbow Albums Set for Release in November

Reissues of Rainbow Albums Set for Release in November -

Rainbow
will release reissues of 'On Stage' and 'Long Live Rock N Roll' this November through Universal. Both albums will be released on the 5th of November (UK).

'Long Live Rock 'n' Roll' is the third studio album by the Ritchie Blackmore led outfit and was first released in '77. It features tracks such as 'Lady of the Lake' & 'Kill the King' and was the last Rainbow record to feature the late Ronnie James Dio on vocals.

'On Stage' is a live album which was recorded over several German and Japanese dates in late 1976 during the band's 'Rising' world tour. Producer Martin Birch spliced many of the tracks together from different dates.

The recording features the customary introduction to a Rainbow show - the classic quote from The Wizard Of Oz:

"Toto: I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore. We must be over the rainbow!" with the last word repeated as an echo. Then the actual band plays a musical phrase from the song 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' before breaking into 'Kill The King'"
