Today is the 38th anniversary of Difficult to Cure.

Released in 1981, this is the fifth studio album by the British hard rock band, Rainbow. The album marked the further commercialization of the band’s sound, with Ritchie Blackmore once describing at the time his appreciation of the band Foreigner.

The video here, the main single, “I Surrender”, would be the band’s highest charting single in the UK, reaching No. 3.

The album material was started with singer Graham Bonnet still in the band, getting as far as recording an early version of “I Surrender”, before Bonnet left the band due to his dissatisfaction over the material. American singer Joe Lynn Turner, formerly of Fandango was recruited and sang over already completed musical tracks. Turner stated that, because of this, he was singing in higher keys than he would do normally.

I used to own this album (in cassette format) and played it a lot, together with Foreigner’s Double Vision and Whitesnake’s Live… in the Heart of the City.

Often tagged as this country’s version of Malcolm McLaren—or as Rolling Stone Indonesia put it ‘the grand master of music propaganda’—a name based on his successes when managing Bali’s two favourite bands, Superman Is Dead and Navicula, both who have become two of the nation’s biggest rock bands.
