At the Rainbow is the first live album from the Dutch rock band Focus, released in October 1973 on Imperial Records. The album was recorded at the Rainbow Theatre in London on 5 May 1973. A studio album was initially slated for release, but it was shelved due to disagreements within the band. An album compiled from the tapes of these sessions was later released with the title Ship of Memories. At the Rainbow was released instead. Anonymus 2". "House Of The King" (Instrumental) (filmed).

Another one of those Focus album that came with different sleeve depending on which side of the great pond you lived on. This is a very controversial album, some calling it useless but it is not that bad but most constuctive criticism is absolutely true. One of the things I always regretted is that Focus always stretched out whatever few good ideas they had, and it is quite evident if you see them live. Right after the release of Focus III album, the band recorded and released this live album at the Rainbow. The famous track "Focus III" (3:54) kicks off this live set with soft organ work combined with stunning guitar fills. It then flows seamlessly to "Answers?

Throughout the album the performance is simply astonishing. Live at the Rainbow is a fine purchase for any Focus fan, or, indeed, anyone looking for a band with a good degree of originality and musical ability.
