Band leader Ritchie Blackmore retained only Ronnie James Dio from the previous album line-up, and recruited drummer Cozy Powell, bassist Jimmy Bain and keyboard player Tony Carey to complete the roster. Recorded in Munich in less than a month, the album was overseen by rock producer and engineer Martin Birch. The band was originally billed as Blackmore's Rainbow in the US. In 1996 Cozy Powell told Record Collector magazine that much of the album was recorded in one or two takes, with some subsequent overdubs, which explains why no alternate or demo versions exist, just the original or rough mixes.
Rising este al doilea album Rainbow, aparut in 1976. Din componenta de pe primul album, Ritchie Blackmore l-a mai pastrat doar pe vocalistul Ronnie James Dio , alaturi de care i-a adus pe Cozy Powell la tobe, Jimmy Bain la bas si Tony Carey la clape. Un album foarte solid si inspirat, cu piese devenite ulterior referinte ale muzicii heavy metal, ca Stargazer , tarot Woman sau Run with the wolf.
