"I have owned this 2 or 3 times now The first time I bought it in 1993 I purchased it to get a taste of the music before I went out to buy any of the albums. This cd covers the years 1983-1990 (Holy Diver through Lock up the wolves) and it is a good place to start if you are unfamiliar with Dio's solo work. There is only one non album track on here and its Hide in the Rainbow (great song) I think it was exclusively recorded for the film Iron Eagle and before this compilation was released the soundtrack was the only other place to find the song (The song Hide in the rainbow has not appeared on any other Dio compilation to my knowledge at least.) I really like the song All the fools sailed away from the album Dream Evil and its not included on this complation but I'm not too worried because I have the song on the cd. As I previously mentioned this a good place to start if you don't know too much about Dio's solo work (I have seen the double disc best of that was released recently but it covered too much for my liking) shop around though I have seen this elsewhere cheaper."
Worth the price for one reason

"As most of you know, there are two versions of a Dio's "Greatest Hits" album available. The first one is "Diamonds: The Best of Dio" and the second is "The Very Beast Of Dio". If your a casual Dio fan, I would recommend going for "The Very Beast Of Dio" over "Diamonds" because it contains more tracks (16 to "Diamonds" 13) and a better selection of his classic tunes. "Diamonds" however would be a better selection for the Die-Hard Dio fan for one reason, Hide in the Rainbow. Yes "Diamonds" contains the ultra rare track Hide in the Rainbow that was previously only available on the Iron Eagle soundtrack, and who really wants to own the Iron Eagle soundtrack? The movie was bad and having the soundtrack in you collection would make you a laughing stock. Now here is your chance to owning "Hide in the Rainbow" without being laughed at. The song is worth the price of this CD and plus you'll add another cool Dio CD cover to your collection. So die-hard Dio fans, pick this CD up today!"
