Rare unreleased blues tracks from the late Ronnie James Dio who passed away on 16th May 2010, are soon to be released.
Before Black Sabbath, Dio and even Rainbow, noted metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio was in a honky tonk blues rock band called Elf.
Even before Elf, in 1967 Dio helped form The Elves, and twelve previously unreleased tracks from that band are set to be released as an album called And Before Elf. There Were Elves.
The songs are both studio and live tracks, remastered by longtime Dio engineer Wyn Davis.
The album will also feature a 3D lenticular hologram cover featuring alternating shots of Dio from the first Elf album and another of the band from 1971.
