These songs are available for download on numerous websites now, and to the best of my knowledge they are not commercially available. However, Dio at Domino’s is strictly for Dio fans only, because if it’s doo wop type early 60’s pop songs you want, then there were plenty of better music combo’s around at the time. The enjoyment the listener gets from this collection of songs is hearing a fledgling Ronnie James Dio at the beginning of his career in 1963, belting out old standards like Love Potion Number 9 and Great Balls of Fire. The sound quality is understandably dubious but there is no mistaking the voice of the man at the mike. Ronnie himself would be the first person to admit that these songs should be banished from God’s clean earth, but with so many people now owning them , there is little or no chance of that. But we’ve all gotta start somewhere, and it’s great to hear the humble beginnings of a man who was to become, and remains to this day, one of the most legendary rock vocalists of all time….by…mooncat ….~


Ronnie and the Prophets have most of the best from this era in Ronnie’s career. They released several singles, as well as Dio at Domino’s, a live recording from 1963 performed at Domino’s Restaurant in Cortland, NY. I don’t know which of all these songs the band wrote, though some are obvious covers. Since there are quite a few songs, I’ll just pick and choose some favorites. 
“Ooh Poo Pah Doo” is a cool song. It’s got a great, up-tempo beat. It and “Gonna Make It Alone” are two of my favorites. I also happen to have these on vinyl. These are the songs I play for people if they want an idea of what Dio’s early stuff is like. 
“Smiling By Day” is what I call their Beatles homage. If I didn’t know any better, I would think it was the Beatles performing it. I do like the Beatles, and this song is quite good. 
“The Way of Love” is also a great tune. Ronnie’s voice is strong on this one, and it’s cool music. Reminds me of something else, but I just can’t place it. 
Dio at Domino’s is a great album. They do a great version of I Left My Heart In San Francisco and an interesting version of “Great Balls of Fire.” My favorite from this album might be “Don’t Take Your Love From Me,” a love song that is fun to sing. I bug my wife with it all the time.If you have a chance to get any of Dio’s early music, try to get something from Ronnie and the Prophets. This is the strongest music before Elf. Note: The “Love Pains” from Ronnie and the Prophets is a slightly different version from the one on Dio at Domino’s. “An Angel Is Missing” is almost identical to the vesion done with Ronnie and The Red Caps…..~


Studying in high school, in 1957, Ronnie James Dio, along with guitarist Nick Pantas and drummer Tom Rogers founded the band “The Vegas Kings”. At first he played the bass guitar and trumpet, but after a while he began to sing vocal parts (it turned out that the voice of the young talent was much higher than the former vocalist). The band changed their name twice, first to “Ronnie & The Rumblers”, and then to “Ronnie And The Red Caps”. In the early 1960s, Ronnie took the pseudonym “Dio” named after one of the members of the mafia group in America, whose name was Johnny Dio. At the same time, Dio focused exclusively on vocals, and “Ronnie And The Red Caps” was renamed “Ronnie Dio & The Prophets”. Under this name the band released several singles and one album - “Dio At Domino’s”. In September 1967, after the appearance of a new keyboard player in the group, it was renamed “The Electric Elves” (later - “The Elves”). In 1970, the members of the team were in a car crash, in which guitarist Nick Pantas died. After that, Ronnie and his two companions change the name of the band to “Elf”…..~
