Ronnie James Dio would have turned 80 years old on July 10, and in honor of that date, Rhino Records is releasing super deluxe editions of Dio's 1983 platinum-certified album Holy Diver on July 8 via a 4-CD collection and a 2-LP offering (also available on clear vinyl) for music collecting aficionados. The super deluxe editions contain unreleased outtakes, live recordings and rarities, which include "Invisible," "Straight Through the Heart" and a version of the classic "Rainbow In the Dark" with an alternative guitar solo. Dio's legacy of music in this recording has been remixed and produced by Joe Barresi.

Holy Diver landed at No. 16 on Rolling Stone's current list of "100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time," and Dio is credited as pioneering the signature devil-horns hand gesture, which has been taken by the music world to become a symbol of hard rock pride. He also, as most of you recall, provided vocals and lyrics to some of the most iconic rock music with both Rainbow and Black Sabbath.

Vocalist Ronnie James Dio is forever a heavy metal legend, sultry and alluring, with a charisma and mystique which has never been matched. His music career spanned over five decades of thrilling music fans worldwide.
