A Decade of Dio / 6CD & 6LP box set


Rhino will remember the work of the late Ronnie James Dio next month, with the release of a brand new box set, A Decade of Dio 1983-1993.

Dio were formed by Ronnie in 1982 and featured Black Sabbath band mate Vinny Appice on drums. The group’s platinum-selling debut Holy Diver arrived in 1983 and the band would record five more albums for Reprise/Vertigo in the ten years that followed (punctuated by a brief reunion with Black Sabbath in 1992).

This collection brings together all those six studio albums, each featuring newly remastered sound. They are: Holy Diver (1983), The Last In Line (1984), Sacred Heart (1985), Dream Evil (1987), Lock Up The Wolves (1990) and Strange Highways (1993).

In addition to the CD box a six-LP vinyl collection will also be issued. This will feature the same six albums plus a bonus seven inch single. The single has the 1983 version of Evil Eyes, on the A-side and Time To Burn, which was the only studio track featured on the otherwise live release, Intermission (1986).

A Decade of Dio also features artwork by Marc Sasso, who was responsible for many of the band’s iconic covers, and is released on 29 July 2016.

  1. Wardy says:

    Count me in so long as the remastering is up to scratch and here’s hoping they finally sort some of that background hiss that very nearly ruined Dream Evil. Cover art is okay but agree is a bit bubblegum, although the background pieces, the previous characters look fantastic! Had they been the feature with the original Demon in the centre instead of out front hmmm…

  2. Les London says:

    As a long time fan of all things Dio, nothing much here on this to tempt me really.

  3. Kevin says:

    Jeez, guys. I don’t see how this artwork is any less goofy than any of the other releases. I am hopeful that the remastering brings it up. I’d rather get this than any of the deluxes that exist.

    • Stan Butler says:

      Exactly. It’s Dio after all. The artwork should be over the top. I think it’s great.

  4. Runicen says:

    The price is certainly right for newcomers. Trick will be whether it’s worth it for someone who already owns these albums (or, like me, who owns all but one). That’ll mostly be down to whether this 2016 remaster is worth its salt or represents a sonic hatchet job.

    Fingers crossed the music gets the upgrade it deserves!

  5. Jon 77 says:

    A vinyl edition of this set is to follow later on.

  6. Phil Aston says:

    The artwork is awful, a live photo of the man would have saved the embarrassment of many potential purchasers.

  7. AlexKx says:

    Lame-o cover artwork. Seriously? A sword? Just shoot it. Moving right along. The original demon on the covers was fucking scary. This is just goofy. How elementary. Oh, there were two disc versions of these l.p.s? Hello Super Deluxe did you ever report on that? Maybe I am the one who missed that. Now that I am interested in. I know I might be the only one but I consider the ones with both Ronnie and Vinnie to actually be Black Sabbath studio l.p.s. Just under a different name. Especially since they are basically under similar genres per se, eh.

  8. Charles K. says:

    Looking forward to this. I held off on the two disc remasters due their price and lack of significant bonus content.

  9. karl says:

    Awesome!! One of the greatest heavy metal singers of all time. An amazing deal.

  10. Stan Butler says:

    Great albums, but I’ve bought the remastered deluxe versions of the first four, which were released as recently as 2012. Are these remastered yet again or the same?
