Rising is the second studio album by British-American rock band Rainbow released May 1976. The original vinyl release was a gatefold sleeve, containing a photo of the band inside, with a generic Polydor inner sleeve.

Two legendary names on one album - Ritchie Blackmore and Ronnie James Dio. This album rocks hard! Starting with the first track Tarot Woman then finishes with two eight minute epics, Stargazer and A Light in the Black on the B-side. 

“No, we had no idea how big it was going to be or how big the influence was,” Dickinson replied. “I think the last album – well, for me anyway - the last album that really was a big influence on me before ‘(The) Number of the Beast’ was when I was a kid ‘Rainbow Rising’ (Rainbow’s 1976 album ‘Rising’). “When you got to hear Ronnie (James Dio) in full throat and (Ritchie) Blackmore playing his pants off and ‘Stargazer’ and you're going, ‘oh my god, nobody's done this in metal before! Wow, this is just incredible!'" - Bruce Dickinson quote from a 2022 interview
