Ride to the Rainbow is Thelma Houston's eighth studio album. The album was not the commercial success it deserved to be initially because the album's most compelling songs never were released as singles. Lax promotion also played a role in the albums' slow sales upon its original release. The album includes such hidden gems as "Imaginary Paradise", "I Wanna Be Back in Love Again", "Just a Little Piece of You." It also includes a version of The Miracles' "Love Machine" and the Top 40 Pop hit, "Saturday Night, Sunday Morning" (in its 12" version different from the previous short version released on the album Ready to Roll).

The album was arranged by Arthur G. Wright.

Ride To The Rainbow was released on CD in September 2005 by the Japanese P-Vine label.
