Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow (sometimes stylised Ritchie Blackmore's R-A-I-N-B-O-W) is the first studio album by American/British rock band Rainbow, released in 1975. During studio sessions in Tampa Bay, Florida on 12 December 1974, Blackmore originally planned to record the solo single "Black Sheep of the Family"- a cover of a track by the band Quatermass from 1970 - and the newly composed "Sixteenth Century Greensleeves", which was to be the B-side.

The album's ponderous lyrics are occasionally punctuated by poetic phrases such as "crossbows in the firelight. Rainbow become a true embarrassment when they try to lighten up and boogie down. If You Don't Like Rock ]n' Roll" is really an abomination, a pale imitation of second-rate radio-rockers like BTO. Although Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow provides a few listenable tracks, its primary value is historical. Look to Rainbow's next album, Rainbow Rising (1976), to grasp the heavy metal potential that is only hinted at here.

More interviews with band members continue to be done daily.

Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow" (1975) is the first album released by "Rainbow". It was recorded and released while lead guitarist Ritchie Blackmore was still a member of "Deep Purple". Lead vocalist Ronnie James Dio has called this his favourite Rainbow album. Elf" had supported Deep Purple on the previous year's tour promoting the band's "Burn" album. This album marked the first collaboration between Dio and Blackmore, and it is essentially the lineup of Elf, Dio's previous band, with Blackmore instead of Steve Edwards
