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.

Rainbow - Ritchie Blackmore& Rainbow (1975).

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

The young Dio is at his best when he fully gives in to his own and Blackmore's medieval fantasy leanings, in hard-rocking tracks like "Sixteenth Century Greensleeves" and "Man on the Silver Mountain. The dark, trudging doom rock of "Self Portrait" most clearly showcases what they were capable of. 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
