    I can't get over how powerful this performance is. The whole band is on fire, but RJD's performance is just mind blowing. The power, the vibrato, the emotion...Live Evil is a prime example of his phrasing and ad libbing abilities. Every performance was a little different from the previous one.

    Yeah I completely agree with you, that version of "Voodoo" is really 100% what I mean when I say that a band is "on fire". Dio's ad libbing is not only fitting in melody and timing, but also in the words he uses which are just so right for the song. Sure there's nothing poetic about "there's evil there, somewhere" at all, but he says it in such a way that he really means it, similar to what I was getting at in another thread on Ozzy's ability to pull off the song "Black Sabbath".

    As for Children of the Sea, that version was the first one I heard (off the Dio Years album) and I still have some issues listening to the studio version haha :D This one is simply superior in every way, Live Evil could have been a really big record if they had wanted to stay together.

        Four years ago today. I remember hearing the news on 93.3 KDKB while driving. Stunned to say the least. As I write this I'm listening to 'Eddie Trunk Rocks' on Q104.3. 'Man On the Silver Mountain', 'Neon Knights', and 'Stand Up And Shout' are played back-to-back. Gone but NEVER forgotten! Ronnie James Dio: R.I.P. ...

          R.I.P. Ronnie, you are gone only in the physical sense, not in the musica and joy you conveyed, that will always live on forever in our hearts and souls.

          You were and always will be the King Of Rock-N-Roll!!!

              Very true! Live Evil, H&H and Mob Rules would have kept on selling had this lineup not broken up so soon. The video would have been released too.

                8 years have gone since the Man went back to the Silver Mountain...

                This playlist is compiled from 20 releases and shows why Dio will always be one of the greatest titans of rock & metal...

                  Of course the day is dedicated to our beloved vocalist and i will make and hear a mix from his Rainbow, Sabbath and solo career days.

                  Dio is one of my favorite artists and i really like his work. The albums which did with Rainbow and Black Sabbath, belong in my favorite albums of all time. H&H, Mob rules, did the 1-2 punch for me. It is remarkable that the same lineup (except the drummer), gave us two astonishing albums the one after the other and those two albums are splendid.

                  Both of these albums are full of gems but the most definitive for me which shows the peak of everyone in the band back then, is this:
