Down to Earth (Rainbow album)

Down To Earth is the fourth studio album released by Rainbow, released in 1979 (see 1979 in music). Most of the album had been already written and recorded by the time Graham Bonnet was recruited. Also recruited were Ritchie Blackmore's ex-Deep Purple bandmate Roger Glover and keyboardist Don Airey. Lyrics were by Glover, music by Blackmore, Airey and Cozy Powell.

This was to be the only Rainbow album on which Bonnet sang, although he was still part of the band when writing for Difficult to Cure began.

There was a limited edition clear vinyl release.

A remastered CD reissue was released in May 1999, with packaging duplicating the original vinyl release.
