Rainbow release “On Stage” & “Long Live Rock N’ Roll”

Rainbow are set to release Deluxe Expanded Reissued Editions of “On Stage” & “Long Live Rock N’ Roll”! The CDs are due for release on November 5th 2012.

As one of the cornerstones of British Rock, Rainbow, lead by the never-predictable but ever-astonishing guitarist, Ritchie Blackmore, became synonymous with some of the most well regarded and popular charting Rock songs of the seventies and eighties. From the mystic and quasi-religious ‘Stargazer’ and ‘Man On A Silver Mountain’ to the solid gold anthems of ‘All Night Long’, ‘Long Live Rock And Roll’ and ‘Since You Been Gone’, each year in the decade of Rainbow was marked by some of the best songs and performances captured both on record and in-concert.

Passing through the band were some of the best the genre had to offer. Vocalists Ronnie James Dio and Graham Bonnet, bass player and producer Roger Glover and drummer Cozy Powell, each brought their individual talent to the table to record some of Rock’s best loved hard rock on those timeless albums and singles.

Long Live Rock ‘n’ Roll is the third studio album released in 1978. This was Rainbow’s last album to feature Ronnie James Dio on vocals.

Universal Music is proud to announce the release of these classic Rainbow albums as deluxe expanded editions….
