There are no reviews for Down to Earth Tour 1979 yet. You can write one.

A deluxe 3CD box set of never before released vintage live performances capturing Ritchie Blackmore’s hugely influential band on tour in support of their stellar Down To Earth album!

Down To Earth was the band’s breakthrough commercial success featuring new vocalist Graham Bonnet on such classic rock staples as “Since You Been Gone,” “All Night Long” and more!

Each performance is packaged in its own individual CD mini LP jacket with separate sleeves and housed with a 28-page color booklet in a gorgeous black velvet lined box with more great, era-appropriate extras including a metal bottle opener/key chain, embroidered fabric patch, 1” color button, and an autographed guitar pick!

Liner Notes by Steve Gett taken from the original 1979 tour program.

On backside of box:
Ritchie Blackmore had ruled the seventies like very few others - creating the blueprints, establishing the parameters, and laying down the succession of riffs that redefined rock for one generation, and reinvented it for another.

Riding Rainbow's most successful album yet, Down To Earth, a line-up that had not even been together for a year had gelled into one of the most instinctive set-ups any of the musicians had ever played with.
