Must have material for dio fans
Wiseguy 945 | Cedar Rapids, IA | 08/16/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For Dio fans, finding the Elf albums is difficult in any format. I did find the original Elf album re-released on CD, managed to find a reasonable cassette of Carolina County Ball, a Vinyl of LA 69 (US Carolina County Ball), and even got a copy of trying to burn the sun on Vinyl. This give you the later 2 elf albums Carolina County Ball and Trying to burn the sun on CD. It's Dio at his best and doing a much more blues sound, which is honestly well suited for his vocal range and tone. Of course, he took it to the next level with his move to rainbow and exploded into the metal world with Sabbath and then his own group DIO, but it is in the music on these two albums that you can feel his roots really dig in. Outstanding change of pace for people who think Dio is just a metal head. Match this stuff up to the best of Zepplin or Deep Purple any day. Must have."
