Instrumental Rainbow songs

First off, none of the three versions of Still I´m Sad (debut, On Stage, Stranger In Us All) were instrumental.

I´m doing this from memory but I think these are the instrumental songs available on albums:

On Stage: part of the Man On The Silver Mountain medley is a Blues jam entitled (surprisingly...) Blues. It does have a start and end point so I guess that counts.

I think that Weiss Heim initially featured as an instrumental B-side to All Night Long (I think the B-side to Since you Been gone was Bad Girl) - both those B-sides are available on Finyl Vinyl.

Maybe Next Time - on Difficult to Cure, the title track is also instrumental. A live version of Difficult... appeared on Finyl Vinyl, featured the Japanese Philarmonic Orchestra I think.

Snowman and Anybody There - Bent Out Of Shape. Snowman was an interpretation of the "Walking In The Air" theme from the Snowman film, made famous by the child singer Aled Jones (?).

Think that´s it. Weiss Heim and Maybe Next Time are delicate, gentle pieces - IMHO especially worth hearing since they showcase Blackmore´s wonderful sense of melody.
