Rainbow's End is the second full-length album by American Christian rock band Resurrection Band, released in 1979.

Recording history

Resurrection Band continues in its Led Zeppelin-inspired rock vein with this record.[1] This release is significant for the inclusion of "Afrikaans," the first anti-apartheid song ever released by an American rock band,[citation needed] one full year before Peter Gabriel brought the issue to listeners' attention with "Biko." Although the band was greatly pleased with this album, that sentiment was not shared by the record label, and Rainbow's End would be the band's last release for Star Song.

Album Design

The gatefold LP for Rainbow's End originally came in a slipcase cover with die-cut windows on either side of the angel. Depending on which side was inserted, the windows revealed either heavenly clouds (as seen at left), or stained-glass windows (as seen in the album infobox above).
