Dio album 'Magica' to get deluxe treatment

DioMagica
 
As long time fans can attest, the quality of Dio's studio albums never wavered throughout the group's near 30-year career. Case in point, the fan favourite concept album, 'Magica,' which featured Ronnie James Dio's one-of-a-kind vocals and the return of guitarist Craig Goldy. The album spawned such metal classics as "Fever Dreams," "Turn to Stone," and "Lord of the Last Day," and has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide - largely on word of mouth alone. 
 
One small problem - the original 2000 CD version has been out of print for years, and has become increasingly hard to find. But to the delight of Dio fans worldwide, 'Magica' will be getting a makeover - on June 24, 2013 - as Niji Entertainment Group will be issuing the 2-CD 'Magica Deluxe Edition.'
 
A breakdown of what will be included on this two CD set is as follows:
 
CD 1 will contain the full album.
 
1. Discovery
2. Magica Theme
3. Lord Of The Last Day
4. Fever Dreams
5. Turn To Stone
6. Feed My Head
7. Eriel
8. Challis
9. As Long As It's Not About Love
10. Losing My Insanity
11. Otherworld
12. Magica- Reprise
13. Lord Of The Last Day - Reprise
 
CD 2 will contain "The Magica Story" (narrated by Ronnie James Dio) and the bonus track "Annica," which was only available as a Japanese bonus track along with "Electra" (which was planned for 'Magica 2 and 3') and six, never-before-released, Official Live Bootleg tracks from 2000/2001.
 
1. The Magica Story (Narrated By Ronnie James Dio)
2. Annica (Japanese Only Bonus Track)
3. Electra (Recorded for Magica 2 & 3)
4. Feed My Head (Official Live Bootleg)
5. Fever Dreams (Official Live Bootleg)
6. Turn To Stone (Official live Bootleg)
7. Lord Of The Last Day (Official Live Bootleg)
8. As Long as It's Not about Love (Official live bootleg)
9. Losing My Insanity (Official live bootleg)
 
Also included in the CD set will be deluxe packaging and a deluxe booklet (which also features the original 'Magica' tour dates, a set list, unseen photos, and new liner notes from long-time writer Mick Wall), as well as bonus inserts - including the "Magica Story" and a Ronnie James Dio postcard. 
 
And the accolades surrounding 'Magica' continue all these years later:
 
“Since I played such a major role in how 'Magica' was created, it became one of my most proudest Dio moments and an experience I shall never forget!”- Craig Goldy (Dio, Dio Disciples)
 
"'Magica' is an album I know Ronnie was extremely proud of. Epic is a word that I often use to describe it to people!”- Simon Wright (Dio, Dio Disciples)
 
"'Magica' was an extremely important album to Ronnie James Dio”- Eddie Trunk, “That Metal Show” VH1 Classic
 
"With this Deluxe Edition of "Magica," we are reminded just how much Dio really meant – to all of us."- Mick Wall, Legendary Writer/Radio Host
 
Soon, Dio fans worldwide will get the opportunity to experience the mighty 'Magica' as they've never done before.
