Classic Rock Albums: Rising

Rainbow’s second album, Rising, is often regarded as one of the best rock albums of all time, with Kerrang readers voting it the greatest heavy metal album of all time (in 1981).  Featuring Ritchie Blackmore on guitar, Ronnie James Dio (born this week on 10th July 1942) on vocals and Cozy Powell on drums alongside Jimmy Bain on bass and Tony Carey on keyboards.  This album, recorded in 1976, features the epic 8minute and 26 second long song Stargazer featuring the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra.
