Temple of the King

When I first sat down here this evening to reorganize this blog, I rummaged through my paltry CD collection and found one I hadn’t listened to in quite some time.


I love Rainbow, but I am more inclined to have Rainbow Rising or Long Live Rock and Roll in the car. What prompted me to post this, however, was the song “The Temple of the King.” In the early 1980s, as I sat at my Commodore 64 for hours on end, this was one of the album’s I used to put on repeat (yes, record players could repeat without intervention!).

Nostalgia probably has the most to do with this, but it remains one my all-time favorite songs. The entire album is great, but this song in particular has latched on to my psyche and won’t let go.
