Memories in Rock wins award in Japan

Rainbow Memories in Rock — Live in Germany has won a Japan Gold Disc Award 2017 under the category of Best Music Videos — Overseas Music (foreign bands/labels). Despite the name, this award is more like American Grammies, as it is awarded for the best performance in a given year, as opposed to a certain number of units sold. The award is presented by the Recording Industry Association of Japan.

Thanks to Akemi Ono for the info.

    There’s been some negativity surrounding Blackmore’s return but I am glad he’s doing this. I prefer what he does to what Deep Purple is doing.

    “Catch the Rainbow” is performed really well on this release. The picture quality is pretty impressive on this Bluray as well.

    I wish someone would film the next shows because I think he will even be better on those.

    So many great Blackmore shows over the years. I’ve seen almost every line up at least once. My first was 1978 so I missed the ultra classic line up with Carey and Bain but what a career!
