Biography

The grand wizard of classic rock. A poet of hope for the downtrodden. The single most important vocal technician in the history of heavy metal. All of these accolades have been garlanded upon the royal roar known as Ronnie James Dio.

He was born on July 10, 1942 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and raised in upstate New York and once said that he would have preferred playing for the ... Read more in Amazon's Dio Store

Almost 30 years to the day,after the release of Dio's Holy Diver,we get another much anticipated disc,hard to believe its 3 years since he passed,i still get chills when i hear his music,that voice,this is no different.

I believe this is the 4th double live disc released under the Dio banner,its a worthy addition to the back catalogue,capturing Dio the group and Dio the man possibly at their peak with this band,certainly for me,the albums that followed didnt always quite hit the mark,not bad but the ist 3 Dio albums were special.

So to this release,arguably his most ambitious tour/stage set and by this point a stunning arsenal of tracks to choose from,this is a superb reminder of the excitement that was a Dio gig,the crowd right up for it,the band perform well,especially Craig Goldy,highlights ,too many to mention,if your a fan,you'll appreciate the track listing with the likes of 'Sacred Heart','Dont Talk To Strangers','Rainbow in the Dark' and the like,while its great to have lesser played tracks such as 'Time to Burn' & 'Hungry for Heaven'.

Sure we could probably live without the solos,maybe could have been left for the dvd,still its the complete concert,throw in a couple of medleys and Ronnie's got us eating out of his hand.

This is a worthwhile release,a special moment in the bands history,the booklet's decent,you get a general sense that everyone appreciates that tour more now than they did then,a realisation ,now, that things did dip after this,so its great to have it here to replay over and over.

I was in two minds as to whether or not to buy this. Firstly, 'Sacred Heart' is decidedly the weakest of Dio's four seminal solo releases, secondly I don't see the point of widdly, self indulgent, guitar solos, let alone pointless drum solos and an equally pointless keyboard solo (a 6 minute yawnfest of breath taking irrelevance), thirdly I can't stand elongated and meandering medleys as they always remind me of Alan Partridge's Kate Bush medley (and have the same effect as channel hopping on TV) and fourthly I have the two hour long Heaven and Hell rendition a zillion times, as it's on every other Dio live release.

So why buy it? The simple reason that I bought it is that I wanted 'Like the Beat of A Heart' and the barnstorming set opener 'King of Rock n Roll' live (specifically without a fake crowd noise in the background), as both are the saving grace highlights from the stodgy Sacred Heart album. I also wanted to hear 'Time to Burn' for the first time. Thankfully the spirited former songs execution in a live environment delivers but unfortunately the latter was a bit of a lacklustre waste of time (it screams 'B side' filler, and, as we all know, Dio doesn't do 'B side' only tracks).

For the record, 'Hungry for Heaven' is as meaningless and repetitive live as it is per the studio version (good verse, poor chorus), Sacred Heart for some reason goes on and on and on and on (I guess Dio is fighting Denzil the dragon judging by the Walt Disney style dragon noises that herald the end of the song - a feature of this concert lost on the audio version thankfully) and 'Rock n Roll Children' isn't lifted by more pronounced live keyboards and the usual veering off into yet another pointless 'Rainbow' medley.

I had this on video many moons ago. Looking forward to a remastered version. 4 stars in anticipation. The lack of a 5th star is for the bloody awful and unnecessary keyboard solo.

I also saw the show, minus the dragon (too big for the stage apparently), at a full house at Festival Hall in Melbourne.

Ronnie was in great form. Great vocals and fabulous crowd interplay.

The guitar solo was too long. The drum solo was ok but predictable. The keyboard solo had us all yawning - it was beyond crap.

But RJD's vocals were what we came for. And he delivered in spades. What a voice!.

The funniest thing that happened was after the gig. We walked outside straight into about 200 cops! I went up to a female PC and asked wtf? She said they were told it was a headbangers gig and to expect trouble but she added everybody seemed really happy (wouldn't you be.) No hassles. No arrests. Everybody went on their merry way. LOL! Just a touch of overkill.
