  1. Thank you!

    I have seen a lot of versions of this show from Rising Arrow. This appears to be different from 063, 064 or 055 because it is the afternoon show, not the evening show. Is there a reference somewhere as to how these differ (different sources, remasters, etc)?

    1. Rising Arrow – 055 (Final Night – Budokan 1976) : It’s the Evening show – very good Audience Recording

      Rising Arrow – 063 (Definitive On Stage) : It’s the SBD Evening Show patched with the Official Deluxe Edition of “On Stage”

      Rising Arrow – 064 (Definitive On Stage Remastered) : Same as above but “Remastered”

      The “Black Tapestry” is an Audience Recording from the AFTERNOON Show.

      Thanks as always for your upload! 🙏

  2. There are also a Calm & Storm recording and a Darker Than Blue recording — both of the evening show. I plan to post these in next couple of weeks.

  3. Never heard it before, just the Tarantura “Afternoon budokan 1976”. This Rising Arrow it’s very good either. Great performance on Light in the Black with great Tony Carey keyboards and Ritchie, Cozy and Jimmy Bain playing really loud and furiously. And ritchie on Mistreated and Dio’s heavenly voice on catch the Rainbow is just one of the most memorable moments in history of music. Thanks again !
