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.
Man on the Silver Mountain" is the first single by Rainbow and the first track of their debut album, Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow.
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. 1. Man on the Silver Mountain. Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio. Rainbow.
Rainbow - Man On The Silver Mountain Lyrics : I'm a wheel, I'm a wheel I can roll, I can feel And you can't stop me turning Cause I'm the sun, I'm the sun I can move, I can run But you'll never stop me burning Come down with fire Lift my spirit hi. .Come down with fire Lift my spirit higher Someone's screaming my name Come and make me holy again. I'm the man on the silver mountain I'm the man on the silver mountain. I'm the day, I'm the day I can show you the way And look, I'm right beside you. I'm the night, I'm the night I'm the dark and the light With eyes that see inside you. I'm the man on the silver mountain I'm the man on the silver mountain
