Rainbow : Difficult To Cure : Classic Album Review

Rainbow : Difficult To Cure : 1981 Classic Album Review

Please watch the video above for the full review.

A look back at this classic album by Rainbow featuring my thoughts and reaction at the time of its release and what I think of the album now.

This technically is my least favourite album by Rainbow. It is far removed from Rainbow Rising and some tracks ( especially Magic ) are certainly more pop than rock but guess what… I really enjoyed it.
Listening to it with fresh ears and the distance of time and years it has some fine moments.
Ritchie Blackmore in particular is very inventive in his solos and even some of the deep tracks have some excellent performances.

Ritchie Blackmore – guitar
Don Airey – keyboards
Roger Glover – bass, producer
Bob Rondinelli – drums
Joe Lynn Turner – lead & backup vocals
