不世出のヴォーカリスト、ロニー・ジェイムズ・ディオ。今なお衰えぬ人気を誇るロニーの全盛期映像をまとめたビデオクリップ集が嬉しいギフト・タイトルで登場です! 本作ではロニーが名実ともにビッグであった80年代を中心に、1983年から2002年のDIOのビデオ・クリップやBLACK SABBATH時代のクリップ、ヘヴィメタル史にその名を刻んだプロジェクトHEAR ‘N AIDの「Stars」等を追加収録。歌だけでなく存在感も強烈なカリスマの魅力を、優れたクオリティの映像で余す所なく楽しめます。

まず最初に登場するのは、1983年の「HOLY DIVER」から、タイトル曲の「Holy Diver」と「Rainbow In The Dark」。剣と戦いのファンタジックな世界観を具現化した前者に対し、現代社会を皮肉ったような後者と、同じアルバムのクリップでも、中身や方向性は大きく異なり、非常に興味深いです。「Rainbow In The Dark」では若々しいヴィヴィアン・キャンベルも印象的で、思わず見入ってしまいます。
1984年の「LAST IN LINE」からは「Mystery」と「The Last In Line」が登場。こちらもマジカルな世界観を描いた「Mystery」に、近未来的でSFなムードを現した「The Last In Line」と、’80年代らしいクリップに仕上がっています。「Mystery」は、1991年に公式リリースされたビデオ「TIME MACHINE」にも収録されなかっただけに、初めて見る方もいるのではないでしょうか。
そして「SACRED HEART」からの「Rock ‘n’ Roll Children」は、DIO史上でも屈指といえる優れたクリップ。ロニーのキャラクターと曲の内容を見事に映像化した内容は、現在の視点から考えても見事です。全編がライヴな演奏シーンで構成された「King Of Rock And Roll」は、アルバムでも擬似ライヴに仕上げられていた曲だけに、映像と楽曲が何の違和感もなくハマっています。
「DREAM EVIL」において製作されたクリップ「I Could Have Been A Dreamer」と「All The Fools Sailed Away」は、「HOLY DIVER」や「LAST IN LINE」当時とも違った質感の画面が印象的。何事にもスケールが大きくなった’80年代後半のムードが映像にも滲んでいます。「All The Fools Sailed Away」はそのムードと曲の壮大さが上手くマッチしています。
ローワン・ロバートソン在籍時で唯一の作品となった「LOCK UP THE WOLVES」からは、当時製作された「Hey Angel」と「Wild One」を2つとも、しっかりと楽しめます。映画的なムードが強かった「DREAM EVIL」当時とは対照的に、どちらもバンドの演奏シーンを中心にしたストレートなクリップとして構成されています。ストリートの雰囲気やバンドのルックスにも現れているように、若返ったバンド像をファンに印象付けています。
本編の最後は2002年の「KILLING THE DRAGON」当時から「Push」を収録。ユニークなイントロとアウトロ、パワフルなバンドの演奏という対比は、今観ても面白いです。

そして本作には、エキストラとして5トラックを追加収録しています。1974年に発表されたロジャー・グローヴァーのプロジェクト作品「BUTTERFLY BALL」から収録された「The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper’s Feast」のほか、BLACK SABBATH時代からは1980年の「Die Young」・「Neon Knights」に加え、1992年の「DEHUMANIZER」当時の「TV Crimes」も楽しめます。そして何より注目すべきは、1985年にHEAR ‘N AIDとして製作された「Stars」でしょう。ロニーやDIOのメンバーだけでなく、ロブ・ハルフォードやイングヴェイ・マルムスティーンなど、超豪華な面々が次から次へと登場する構成は、観ていてまったく飽きません。この映像を見た事がない人には最高に興味深く、当時からロニーの活躍を追いかけていたマニアにとっても懐かしさ一杯に楽しめる、嬉しいボーナスです。
