4.0 out of 5 stars Strange Highways indeed..., 7 July 2014
This review is from: Live In London Hammersmith Apollo 1993 (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.
