Editorial Reviews

Out-of-print in the US. Despite founding guitarist Vivian Campbell's departure from Dio just a few months after the release of 1985's SACRED HEART, the band took to the road in the summer of '86 with replacement guitarist Craig Goldie in tow. To introduce the new lineup to fans, Dio issued its first live recording, the six-song INTERMISSION EP. Five of the tracks were recorded in concert and featured Campbell, while Goldie plays on the new, studio-recorded "Time To Burn". At the time, Dio's stage-show relied heavily upon theatrics. Look no further than the front cover of INTERMISSION, in which Ronnie James Dio is pictured slaying a huge plastic dragon! But the group still created plenty of excitement onstage through its music. Longtime fans will get a kick out of "Rock N' Roll Children Medley", which features tracks from R.J. Dio's past bands, as well as "Sacred Heart", "Rainbow in the Dark", "We Rock", and "King of Rock and Roll". INTERMISSION serves as a worthy souvenir for the thousands of metal fans that caught Dio's bombastic arena shows of the 80's.

... It's an excellent E.P. All 5 live recordings sound great and are of very high quality. The Rock 'N' Roll Children Medley is the most awsome, as it contains Man on the Silver Mountain, a classic tune from Dio's Rainbow days done faster and up to date (for the 1986 that is). But don't let the word LIVE fool you in the the name of this CD. Not everything is live on this EP, there is actually one excellent Studio track...Time To Burn. Time To Burn was an excellent suprise because it is a studio track stuck in the middle of all the live tracks. So you fans that don't like live stuff, here is another reason to buy the disc, for another great studio track! Intermission was popular back in 1986 because it was the only to get some live dio, but since the release of Dio's live album Inferno: The Last in Live, Intermission has sadly been forgotten. So if your a die-hard dio fan, pick up this little live E.P. plus one studio track for you collection, you won't be disappointed! (Hint for die-hard fans: Make sure to get the German Import Diamonds: The Best of Dio or the Russian Import of Lock Up The Wolves, as they both contain the rare studio track Hide in the Rainbow, another classic lost Dio song!)

I would like to state that after having seeing RJD first on the Heaven and Hell tour with the Sab and then many other subsequent live shows including this tour and the rare show Hear'N'Aid, RJD gave us a glimpse of what was happening on stage at that time with the band. For me the biggest disappointment was that it was not a longer disc. I remember getting this when it first came out and I bought it on casette. The album was put together to give the band some time to let the band have a bit of a break during their almost constant touring AND to show people what the shows were all about. Dio at his prime with the most elaborate stage show was just a rockers dream come true. with regard to the music, judge for yourself, but dio was fantastic and the band tight. Time to Burn was a radio hit at that time and is still an excellent song. As an import it is pricey but for the diehard fan, i think this is a great addition to the collection. RJD has weathered decades of musical changes and has remained a vital part of rock and roll and has continued to stick to his guns and deliver music he believes in. This cd is a great opportunity to hear his voice during the early years in dio. as anyone who has sang professionally knows it is hard enough to hit notes dead on standing still yet RJD has no problem keeping his voice exactly where it needs to be while dancing and rocking out (fellow singers may agree). Another excellent choice to hear RJD give a great vocal concert is the live DVD at the spectrum. In a word, if you want to capture the magic of a time when Dio was at his peak, this is a must have. Rock the vote and Rock on!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a great EP for those who love to hear Dio Live! The EP was released to introduce Dio's new guitarist Craig Goldy who joined after Vivian Campbell's departure from the band. The songs are straight forward readings of the studio versions (with the exception of the medley) which is a sharp contrast to the days with Vivian who seemed to inject each performance with something distinctive for the audience of their shows. Goldy plays the solos a bit differently due to the HUGE difference in styles between the two guitarists. While Vivian is definitely the better player/performer, Craig was a better writer for Ronnie's songs. Just listen to Time To Burn (a studio track included on the EP) and the CD's Dream Evil, Magica, and Master of the Moon. These are prime examples of the Dio formula! I'm not saying they are the best by any means, that distinction will always go to Dio's first two CD's: Holy Diver and The Last In Line! But Ronnie and Craig were more on the same wave length as far as style and vision than Ronnie and Viv were. Viv was all about the riff and the solo where as Craig was about the song as a whole. I gave this EP three stars only because we have to pay the price of a double CD for a six-song disc and more importantly, it was way too short, considering the following VHS release of the Sacred Heart concert (available on DVD now, pick it up it is awesome!) showed that their were alot more great performances that could have been culled into a full live release! But still it is a good listen and I was hoping WB would release it domestically so we didn't have to pay out the wazoo for an import!

First of all, this was originally released as an EP in 1986, with the five live tracks taken from the final tour with guitarist Vivian Campbell, and the studio cut "Time to Burn", a particularly unmemorable introduction of new guitarist Craig Goldy. Second, I have to say that the this one has one of the most no-it's-not-Spinal-Tap,-it's-serious album in heavy metal history. Third, this relatively expensive and rare CD does not appear to be a remaster.
That said, it is not all bad. Namely, it has definitive versions of "Sacred Heart" (although the remastered live version is included on the new 'Anthology') and "Rock and Roll Children", complete with a medley of Rainbow tunes, "Long Live Rock and Roll" and "Man on the Silver Mountain".
