Deals and Steals: Heaven, Hell and the Dirt and Metal Between

  This month’s shipment of used goodies is all about the mighty Dio, with some contributions from Soilwork.  All prices $US.

Heaven and Hell – The Devil You Know $6.29. Sabbath Mark II marches on, and the world is better for it.

Dio – Stand Up and Shout: The Anthology $12.59. Two discs with all of the man’s phases in effect, including some Rainbow and Elf tracks. Great booklet with notes aplenty by RJ himself.

Soilwork – Natural Born Chaos and Figure Number Five $5.59 apiece. The band’s two best at the right price.

Century Media X: 10th Anniversary Collection $11.89 One disc of North America, one of Europe and one rarities. Nothing big I don’t already have on albums, but the lure here is the gorgeous full-colour pocket book stuffed with pictures and memories from the Century Media staff. People after my own black heart!

I’ve never really devoted a lot of time and space to Dio other than his work with Sabbath, but I’m really happy that with the help of this  Rhino compilation I can say I’m done collecting for now. That is, unless he pulls out all the stops and writes another Heaven and Hell.

Walk Away!

  1. That Dio anthology is great stuff. It’s a great introduction to him and also to all the cool bands he’s been in.
