A rare psychedelic record from the 60s, in which this band called Rainbow pulls out all the stops. Part “Sgt. Pepper,” part San Francisco, part Mothers, “After the Storm” displays an exuberance and confidence that befits an era where even lesser talents felt they change the world. From the whimsical, carnivalesque “Debby’s Party” and “The Ballad of Captain Bob and The Good Ship Venus,” through the prog soul of “Love Allusion” and “Milk and Honey Lovin’.” There is also a game stab at “I Just Want To Make Love to You,” that kind of works, but maybe wasn’t such a good idea. So “After the Storm” is a mixed bag that was intended to be mixed. With its erratic variety of styles and sunny disposition, Rainbow ought to win over some fans, some 40 years too late. Relics like this are cool when they can deliver both nostalgia and some surprisingly good tunes.
