This edition of Dio's classic Holy Diver is remastered by Andy Pearce as are the other Dio 2012 deluxe releases, which means, unlike other Deluxe Editions out there, this one isn't simply a volume bloated re-release. Very fine, clean and detailed sound, but just a tad bright. Disc 2 has some wonderful rare goodies that alone make this worthy of the purchase. The packaging is your standard for these editions, a wonderful foldout digipak and an informative booklet stuffed into one of the open flaps. Highly recommended edition if you have the cash. Tracklist below.

01. Stand Up and Shout
02. Holy Diver
03. Gypsy" Vivian Campbell

I don't know how many times I have bought this cd,firstly on vinyl,tape,cd and now this collector's edition,remastered,if you are a fan you will already have this cd,but for the younger fans out there,you should buy this,with a 16 page booklet and exclusive interview of Ronnie James Dio on the cd,this is well worth the price at Amazon,The songs are classics,every single one,first recorded in 1983 all the tracks sound fresh ''Holy Diver'' will never date and still stands up well in 2005,This is a timely release as Dio tour the UK next week and perform the whole cd on stage live,Holy Diver is Holy Magic

The first album by Dio and Ronnie Dio's voice is amazing. After leaving Black Sabbath we hear Dio making music that is more than an equal to any of the Sabbath stuff.
This album is full of great heavy metal tracks and in my opinion has some of the best of Dio's work on it. The title track, Holy Diver, is a heavy metal classic, as is Don't Talk to Strangers.
If you have ever heard anything by Sabbath (with Dio as lead singer) and liked it, then you will love this album. It is quite possibly one of the classic heavy metal albums of the 80's and that put it up against stiff competition and it still shines through as one of the best.

Good package and the vinyl plays well on a decent turntable. The running order is not as per the original concert / DVD release and the edit does distract from the listening experience with a sharp end to MOTSM (LP2 side 2) . Overall I would buy it on DVD / blueray

Imagine a time when image counted for nothing and substance was all. No wonder when Holy Diver was released it was christened with the tag of Best Rock album of '83 by many fans and Journo's alike. Forget the rainbow/dragon lyric association Dio have, and saviour a truly awe-inspiring release. RJD's vocals are simply astounding - from gutteral roar to soulful melody - he just nails them. Vivian cambell's guitar simply shreds and the quality of the song writing is exceptional. Remastered production is pretty fine too and drags this album into 2006 where it proudly gives a big fat middle finger to most current rock release's. Take a bow whoever gave the green light to remaster and re-issue this - I salute you. Trust me if you fancy 40 or so mins of 'classic' rock that will make you jump up and down like a loon spend a measly 6 quid on this and let a short odd looking bloke take you to rock heaven. Thank god this wasn't submitted to a record label in 2006...RJD would never have got past the marketing executives!!
Peace out.

I'm not a metal fan, but am a fan of great rock n roll, which is how I would categorize Dio, along with Zeppelin and Deep Purple - all a cut above metal bands, the difference being that the above mentioned are composed of real musicians who can really play. Dio were blessed with Ronnie, a terrific singer and songwriter, as also shown by his work with Rainbow and Black Sabbath. This is a great album with Ronnie in charge, leading by example and producing. Terrific songs delivered by the best vocalist in this genre. A sad loss.

I really love this album. Ronnie James Dio is a pure genius. If anything, his time in Rainbow was a restricting influence on his creativity. I thought this band wouldn't be any good because Ritchie Blackmore was absent, but I was incredibly wrong. Vivian Campbell is brilliant on this album, which I beleive to be Dio's most creative and consistent. Chugging riffs, blistering solos, this guy can do it all. He gives a real edge to the music, which is brilliant.
Ronnie's voice is simply amaing: rough, powerful, and melodic. It is simply blissful to listen to him sing. He is my favourite vocalist of all time. He adds a real character to the music. Its hard to describe, just listen to the album and you'll see.
Each track is superb, but my favourites are "Gypsy", "Straight through the heart" and "Rainbow in the Dark".
A superb album from a superb band. Your cd collection is crying out for this. GET IT!!!! Then get "Dream Evil" and "Last in Line".
