  1. Great footage, Stargazer, Light In The Black. A proper dvd with this stuff should be realesed at some point in the future.

  4. Excellent photograph of the band well in full tilt here - the Rainbow light show high overhead and along with the Rising logo set deep in the background must have been a spectacular visual effect.

  5. Whoever is responsible for preventing the release of the full footage of this concert tour should hang their head in shame. Just like the Deep Purple concert footage from the Made in Japan tour, some idiot or idiots think its not worth the effort. Unfortunately it is too late for some as they have literally died waiting in vain. Whether its band members, management, record execs whoever. You are complete and utter wankers if responsible.
