Tower Of Babel [Super Sonic SS 200013/14/15, 3CD]

World Tour Rehearsals 1976. Excellent soundboard.

Thanks to rogermetal for sharing the tracks in 2005.

Toofonky, who shared a version of this set on Dime in 2010, noted: “At the end of the day, this torrent is highly recommended for the Rainbow fan wishing to gain some possible insights into the formative evolution of this great group’s live show. Otherwise, listening to the concert recordings may probably be a better use of your valuable time.”
