The 4 bonus tracks will appear on the 2CD edition and will not on the vinyl, both according to German Amazon. Still not clear about the video versions as both those 4 and the 2 Japanese bonus tracks, however, are billed as ‘live video’ on the Japanese Amazon. Japanese DVD+2CD deluxe edition will also come with a commemorative t-shirt.

Rainbow Memories in Rock Japanese deluxe edition

The Blu-ray is already a #1 bestweller on Amazon Japan in the Hard Rock & Metal DVD category. That’s with DVD at #4, another Blu-ray edition at #5, deluxe edition at #6, and yet another DVD edition at #7. Sure, we get it, the land of the rising sun loves ’em some Blackmore.

    Fair play to Ritchie for getting back on stage with Rainbow after all these years. I flew to Germany and was grinning from ear to ear at the BB show on 18.06. Everything in perspective … appreciate he’s hardly going to play like its 1977 … just enjoy the master back on stage.

    & then, no doubt, will some weeks later be loaded onto youtube!. No matter, I will still be purchasing it as soon as I can, as is my want. Long live rock ‘n’ roll…. & yabba dabba doo!.

    That figures.
    Loreley (I was there) was a meagre gig, when I see it from a guitarplaying perspective.
    As a fan … it was very special to see him again and it was nice and okay.
    For me in the result … it was lame and underperform.

    Bietigheim-Bissingen – I ve seen it on youtube – was better than the day before.

    So the DVD will show us “The Best of … the bad and underperform”.

    This is a great pity !

    The best of the three gigs will only seen on youtube – very pity !!

    The best item is the tour-shirt showing Ritchie performing, concentrating on his guitar playing. I think it’s a photo from the “Rising”-tour.

    I was not really impressed while watching the youtube-videos of all three shows.

    But… we still have the band in full flight: DVD “Live in Munich” and the double-CD “Live in Germany”

    Have a nice Day!

    I saw the Germany concerts on youtube and wasn’t all that impressed but thats probably due to the quality of the fans recording more than the actual show. I thought Birmingham was the best and the one that was filmed. Also I dont think that Highway Star and Spotlight kid should have followed one another. I would have started with Highway Star and kept Spotlight kid for the encore.
