Elf - Elf ( Hardrock with Ronnie James Dio - 1972 )

Ronnie Dio and the Prophets disbanded in 1967, but he and Prophets guitarist Nick Pantas started a new band called the Electric Elves. They shortened their name to Elf in 1969, and went on to become an opening act for Deep Purple. Dio's vocals caught the ear of Deep Purple guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, and when Blackmore left the band, he recruited Dio and other members of Elf to form Rainbow. Rainbow released its first album in 1975. Dio recorded two more albums with Rainbow, but he left the band due to creative differences: Blackmore had wanted to take the band in a more commercial direction. Dio performed vocals on the 1974 UK single 'Love is All' taken from Roger Glover's concept album 'The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper Feast'. The song was used by the Dutch political party CDA in its election ads for the 2006 Dutch General Election. Dio also provided vocals for the songs 'Homeward' and 'Sitting in a dream' on Glover's album. Former Deep Purple alumni Glenn Hughes and David Coverdale also appeared.
