  • This is one of those “record company” greatest hits albums. Wasn’t an idea from Ronnie himself – note the lack of tunes from Angry Machines & Magica, the two albums not on the Warner label (that all the original albums these tunes came from).
  • In Germany, the album came out under the title “The Evil Collection: The Very Best of Dio” in 2002, with different artwork, that can be seen below.
