I Could Have Been A Dreamer. Dio's fourth album gets a special edition reissue to celebrate Rocktober! Originally released in 1987, Dream Evil found Ronnie James Dio adding more melodic elements to the hard Sabbath-style rock that has become the band's signature sound. Once again, former Rough Cutt band members Claude Schnell and Craig Goldy are on keys and guitars, but this would be the final album featuring drummer Vinny Appice (until '93's Strange Highways) and bassist Jimmy Bain (until 2000's Magica). Includes the hit singles "I Could Have Been A Dreamer" and "All The Fools Sailed Away." Presented on limited edition green colored vinyl with fully remastered sound, as part of the Rocktober reissue series.
