Rhino Records is releasing a very special new box set this year for fans of legendary rocker Dio.
A Decade of Dio: 1983 – 1993 will be released this year. The multi-disc set culls Dio’s first six solo albums: Holy Diver (1983), The Last in Line (1984), Sacred Heart (1985), Dream Evil (1987), Lock Up The Wolves (1990), and Strange Highways (1993). The CD set will be released in stores and online via Rhino Records on Friday, July 22nd and will retail for MSRP of $34.98. It will also be available as a multi-disc vinyl box set on Friday, October 4th. The vinyl box set will retail for MSRP of $99.98. It will come with a bonus 7” vinyl single containing the original 1983 take of ‘Evil Eyes’ on one side and ‘Time To Burn’ on the other. The take of ‘Evil Eyes’ that is presented in the vinyl set’s bonus 7” disc was originally released as the b-side to the title track from Holy Diver. As an added note, it is completely different from the take presented in Dio’s 1984 album The Last in Line. ‘Time To Burn’ was the only studio track to be included in Dio’s 1986 live recording Intermission.
Pre-orders for both the CD and vinyl box set are available now. Both versions are presented in boxes featuring new artwork by Marc Sasso. Sasso was the man behind the artwork on a number of Dio’s original albums. The CD Pre-orders are open here and the vinyl pre-orders here.
