When Tarantura started this series of releases focusing on Rainbow’s Japanese tours from both 1976 and 1978 in late 2009 one could ask, How many of these shows does one need ? As the series went on I found myself drawn in and would eagerly anticipate a new release, Tarantura wisely chose to space them out and I found myself seeking out previous titles I did not initially buy. While a couple of the releases have been sourced from Song Brothers and Aquarius it has been the Mr. Peach recordings I found the most pleasurable and have been the subject of much garnered praise from the collecting community. With this new release of the last show on the 1976 jaunt one could argue that they saved the best for last.
There are multiple recordings for this show and previous releases have been abundant with titles such as The End Of Rising Darker Than Blue-041/042, When Evening Falls Rising Arrow-007, Soundboard Archives 1976 Darker Than Blue 077/078, Branded To Kill Rising Arrow-042, Rising Falls Rising Arrow-046, and Risin’ Tarantura TCDRAINBOW-1-1,2.
This release has the Mr. Peach source in all its glory, an excellent recording done close to the stage with a wonderful ambiance that captures the excitement and passion of both band and audience members. If you liked the previous Tarantura title Risin’ , then you will love this one, it has a much wider and dynamic sound and is nicely detailed, it sounds good when played quietly and comes alive when played loud.<-(Info taken from Collectors Music Reviews).
