Music fans in Syracuse, have I found a deal for you. Ronnie James Dio was always considered one of the father’s of heavy metal. Here are some wickedly delicious collections that are the perfect headbanger stocking stuffer. Read on.
Without question, Ronnie James Dio was one of the greatest vocalists in hard rock/heavy metal history, who built a fanatical and devoted following during his multi-decade career. And in the coming months, Dio collectors will have the opportunity to pick up some truly one-of-a-kind releases – a limited edition picture disc of Elf’s self-titled debut album, a deluxe picture disc of the Dio release ‘Master of the Moon,’ and a limited edition and deluxe numbered super secret Picture Disc that will make HISTORY for RECORD STORE DAY 2012!
As a reminder, just released is the amazing, “And Before Elf……. There Were
Elves” featuring both live in the studio and live on stage tracks from 1971 from
The Elves featuring a young Ronnie James Dio on vocals! The packaging is
spectacular! The CD comes housed in a digi pack with a custom Lenticular cover!
When you turn the cover to the right, you see an image and when you turn it to
the right, you see a completely different image! This CD is in stores now!
December 13th will see the release of the very first Elf album, as a deluxe
numbered picture disc. Originally issued in 1972, the album shows off Dio’s vast
vocal talents, as he handles honky tonk, blues, and rock, rather than the mega
decibel rock that would later become his trademark. This release will be issued
in the USA only, and each LP will be individually numbered from 1-2,500.
The next release, the ‘Master of the Moon’ deluxe numbered picture disc, will be
released on March 13, 2012. The album was originally issued in 2004, was Dio’s
tenth studio solo effort overall, and featured such renowned rock names as Simon
Wright on drums, Craig Goldy on guitar, Scott Warren on keyboards, and Jeff
Pilson on bass. Unlike the other two aforementioned releases, the ‘Master of the
Moon’ deluxe picture disc will not be a limited edition release.
And lastly, on Record Store Day 2012 (April 16, 2012, to be exact), The Niji
Entertainment Group has something very special that will sell out instantly! We
