I have the CD version only. I was not impressed by the Stranger in Us All record at the time of release (time has not changed my opinion). Live, the songs sounded better and I thought Doogie was a good front man. Sure, I would have preferred JLT or Dio, but Doogie was good.

That said, I think the biggest issue I have with Black Masquerade is the sound/mix... it sounds dreadful in parts. Blackmore's playing sound good, but the rest.... a lot of warts on this one.

Does anybody have the DVD or both? Is the sound any better?

For the best live Rainbow, I will take JLT Finyl Vinyl or any of the live German shows with Dio compared to this one.

My 2 Cents,

Frank

On a side note, when I saw this lineup live, they broke into "Hey Joe" and turned the lyrics into "Hey O.J." (O.J. Simspon)... It went "Hey O.J., Where you Going with that knife in your hand?"...."I'm going down to kill my old lady, caught her messing around with the pizza man" Gotta love the humor.
