  • Black Sabbath - The Dio Years

    From Wikipedia:
    'Black Sabbath: The Dio Years is a 2007 compilation CD of material from recordings made during vocalist Ronnie James Dio's tenure in the band. The CD contains full album length, remastered tracks culled from all three studio albums: Heaven and Hell (1980), Mob Rules (1981), Dehumanizer (1992), and the live album Live Evil (1982). It also contains three new recorded songs: "The Devil Cried", "Shadow of the Wind", and "Ear in the Wall".'

    A Memorable Highlight from Mike:

    'Working with Ronnie James Dio for the first time was an obvious highlight. He’s really a hero of mine to this day. Just listen to 'Shadow of the Wind' and you can almost feel his voice rattle your very bones. Such an amazing talent. It was a great feeling having him and Tony back together again. It was also a learning experience for me to grasp the art of managing such large projects with such experienced people.'
