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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strange Highways indeed... 7 July 2014
By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Another year,another Dio live double disc,yet i never tire of the man nor his music,this however is a little different,it doesnt represent a high point in his career,nor a particulatly well loved album,arguably its his weakest band and yet there is something that pulls you to this disc.

On the rebound from Sabbath,Dio released a highly dark,dense album,no fist in the air anthems just doom laden rock, I'm sure much of this may have featured in a follow up to Sabbath's Dehumaniser,had they continued,he clearly believed in it,hence 6 tracks performed live and captured here for your pleasure.They are a breath of fresh air,yes its great to hear the classics but its even better hearing something different,so the highpoints on this release(for me) are the likes of 'Strange Highway','Hollywood Black and the rest from the then current release.

Sound quality is pretty good,the keyboards tend to be in the background until required,the Bass is well up in the mix,particularly on the newer tracks,Tracy G,well he sounded more at home on the tracks he'd recorded in the studio , maybe he was trying to hard to put his stamp/style on the others or he couldnt handle the original solo's,you can make your own mind up,i enjoyed his performance. Ronnie ,of course sounds excellent.

I've docked a star because with some judicial pruning,this would have fitted onto 1 disc,we didnt really require guitar/drum solo's again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dio at their different best :-) 4 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dio at their best, A different albeit heavier lineup playing new stuff and old to a happy Hammersmith crowd. Superb :-)

What more can you say about anything by Ronnie James Dio that hasn't been said so many times before apart from what a brilliant album to add to any music fan's collection ? It's always great to hear "Holy Diver", "Man on the Silver Mountain", "The Last in Line" and "Rainbow in the Dark" again. You can never get tired of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect. 10 Jun 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
In a perfect world, we would get something from the Holy Diver tour. I much prefer the sword and sorcery Dio to this era. Recorded to promote the Strange Highways album it still contains many classics (hence the 4 stars), I just feel the newer (at the time) songs let this album down.
