Dio Release Their Holy Diver album On This Day In 1983

Released on May 25, 1983, it has been hailed by critics as Dio’s best work and a classic staple in the heavy metal genre. The original vinyl release had a photo-montage LP-liner.

The album was remastered and re-released by Rock Candy Records in 2005. The only notable addition to the original album is an audio interview with Ronnie James Dio. Tracks 10-19 on the 2005 edition are Dio’s answers to various questions about the album. The questions are not posed during the interview itself, but can be found inside the CD’s booklet instead. The B-sides to the singles, most of them live, remain generally unavailable on CD – some were included in a limited-edition Japanese CD box-set.
