Song Missing from the 1979 Cast Recording of Evita

Hello, in the 1979 Original Cast Recording of Evita, the song "Rainbow High" has been taken off of Spotify. It was once on Spotify, but is no longer there. I am making this post to request that the song is returned to Spotify.


The song Rainbow High sets up the following song, Rainbow Tour, which is still on Spotify. It also introduces several reoccuring themes and sounds to the musical, which are heard again in the song Lament (which is also still on Spotify). Rainbow High is vital in the progression of the play, and as such it is important that it is returned to Spotify promptly.


Additionally, several other versions of Rainbow High are still available on Spotify, such as a live version recorded by Patti LuPone herself. The absence of the 1979 cast recording version is jarring, unexplained, and disrupts the flow of the entire album.

Hey @ratguy


The availability of music on Spotify is up to the artists and their music label.


If the music is unavailable, the artist or their music label may have decided to not make it available in Spotify, or sometimes licensing issues prevents the track to appear.


Sometimes the music is only available in certain countries, while access is blocked to others.


Sometimes the album or song will be unavailable temporary, and come back again later. Hopefully it will come back later.

I find it highly unlikely that the composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, the producers or the record label would remove this one song from spotify, considering it has been available for years! This must be a bug. 


Why would anyone suddenly decide to remove ONE song from an album that was released in 1979? Unfortunately, it's one of the best songs as well...


Please fix this bug!
