Editorial Reviews

Finding The Sacred Heart Live In Philly 1986 was filmed at The Spectrum in Philadelphia on June 17th, 1986 during the second leg of the Sacred Heart tour, which featured new guitarist Craig Goldy. The show was issued in an edited form first on VHS and then DVD. Now for the first time the full concert is being released in the original running order, restored from the original 16mm film and with remastered sound. It s an extraordinary live show with a giant animatronic dragon towering over the stage and spectacular lasers and pyrotechnics. Ronnie James Dio is in fine voice as ever and the band deliver a blistering live performance featuring tracks from their first three albums alongside Black Sabbath and Rainbow classics. This will be a must-have release for any Dio fan!

Bonus Features:
Sacred Heart Tour featurette / Interview 86 / Interview with Ronnie & Craig / Rock n Roll Children music video / Behind The Scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Magic! May 26, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
What can I say? This is magic in the purest form. For the first time we get to see a full show from The Sacred Heart Tour with an all brand new edit too. Forget the sloppy "Sacred Heart: The Video" which looks bleak in comparison with its MTV-style editing and action highlights from the show put in places into the songs were they shouldn't appear. Pyros and fire etc. This one, Finding The Sacred Heart is beutifully shot from the opening to the very end without antything missing from the show. Each song is intact and all the stuff with lasers, fire and pyro is there. The shots are long and without epileptic tendencies so you can clearly see what happens. The color and details are awesome. It has a very live feel to it and the sound is fantastic. Strong, rich and powerful, the sound is amazing and you can hear all instruments clearly. I saw this fantastic show just two months prior to this filming on the 18th of April in Gothenburg, Sweden. And this is very close to my memory of that show. It is really a shame that we had to wait for 27 years before we could see this one. Very strange indeed since this is so powerful and really captures the essence of the Sacred Heart era. I'm stunned! I recommend this one to every Dio fan out there, you won't be disappointed! I see that Wendy Dio is an executive producer too so one can only hope for more goodies from the Dio vault in the future. Anything presented this good is pure magic. A big box of cigars to Eagle Vision and Wendy for this! Kudos to you! Dio forever!

5.0 out of 5 stars DIO: Finding the Sacred Heart in Philly 1986 May 1, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you were ever a fan of the legendary Ronnie James Dio then you absolutely MUST add this to your DVD library. It captures the late Mr. Dio at one of many majestic and fine moments! The sheer sound of his voice alone is enough to awe any Dio fan! Witness Dio's legendary voice, stage theatrics and creative backdrops! Hear the thunder of the drums on classics like King of Rock n Roll to the screaming guitar of then new guitarist Craig Goldy on We Rock! Some Sabbath & Rainbow era songs are revisited as well. This will NOT disappoint! Long live Rock n Roll and may Ronnie James Dio as well through the wonderful legacy he has left us in his amazing music! R.I.P. Ronnie J. Dio and eternal thanks for the memories!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dio at his peak! May 29, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of RJD for over 30 years and attended several concerts, including this tour. IMHO this was Dio at his all time best with soaring vocals right on key every time. As the concert shows, he spent a lot of time finding an individual in the audience, making eye contact, and making a lifetime memory for that fan. Even though this was one of Craig Goldy's first shows with the band you would never know it. The music is crisp and sound mixing is excellent.

My only problem with the BluRay comes down to expectations in video quality. While I know this was filmed 27 years ago on 16 mm I thought the remastering would result in better picture quality. There are a few up close cameras that look great, but others that look like they copied it straight from VHS. Nonetheless, this is a great addition to any Dio fan out there!

5.0 out of 5 stars DIO DONE RIGHT! May 30, 2013
Format:DVD
I have watched quite a few DVD performances done by DIO and Company. This is the best sounding best done, best performance, best stage show I have ever seen by this group. The group is fantastic in this performance. The one and only complaint I have is that I wish the lead guitar sound was more defined like the other instruments are in this performance.
Great job DIO and lets not forget Eagle Productions for doing another fine job with this DVD. Go out and get this one it is Excellent!

Format:DVD
Ever since the tragic passing of Ronnie James Dio 3 years ago, there has been a plethora of re-releases and they have all been great. I have enjoyed all the Rainbow, Sabbath and Dio 2 Disc Deluxe editions as well as the Heaven and Hell and Rainbow Live in Munich DVD sets. Even the Dio At Donnington is great, but I think the expanded re-release of Finding The Sacred Heart DVD really sets itself apart from all the rest. This DVD shows the 1986 model of Dio on fire! Ronnie sounds awesome, but I was especially blown away by Craig Goldie on the DVD. I knew he was great guitar player, but his performances are KILLER! Everything about this DVD from the sound to the visuals are pretty damn near perfect, but the CD soundtrack just misses the mark by a tad. It could have used a little more care when it was mixed and prepared for mastering. However, the audio soundtrack does sound better than the CD after I loaded it into my iPod for some reason. But do I recommend getting both the CD and the DVD? Of Course! But you might find yourself watching the DVD more than you would listening to the CD.

But as an added note, 2 more weeks until the re-release of Ronnie's 2000 release Magica!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best DIO performance caught on video! July 16, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is the best DIO show I have seen. The show is excellent, the music selection is great and the band at the peak of their performances. Forget about those annoying cel phones and flashlights in the audience, this is the 80s and everyone is focused on enjoying the show ....period. The bluray transfer is great although there are some grainy parts, but not a big deal. One CON I did find, and understandable, is the abuse of keyboards. Of course, this is 1986 and found them great back then, but not anymore. DIO's vocals are amazing, this is a top notch performance for him and his vocals stood proud and got immortalized in this concert. This is a masterpiece, nothing short of that can be said. Had to wait 6 weeks to get it but it was worth the wait for the bluray.
