5 A Light In the Black - Rainbow

This is one of Blackmore's best Rainbow solos, should be in the top 3, along side, in no particular order Gates of Babylon and Stargazer. - AllFleshIsEqualWhenBurnt

This has ever been the best for me - very fast and technical. - Metal_Treasure

Ok... the other solos are good, but this can't be played from anyone like the others. Ckeck the tabs (that do not exist)...
