The first two Ronnie James Dio-fronted Black Sabbath albums, 1980’s Heaven and Hell and 1981’s Mob Rules, are receiving deluxe reissues via Rhino Records.
Both albums will be available on CD and vinyl, featuring a 2021 remaster of the original LPs, along with B-sides, alternate versions, and rare live recordings. Do to space constraints, the vinyl versions will feature a selection of the bonus tracks available on the CDs.
1980’s Heaven and Hell marked Dio’s debut with Black Sabbath. It proved to be one of the heavy metal’s greatest comeback albums following the ousting of original singer Ozzy Osbourne. The expanded edition includes live versions of “Children of the Sea” and “Heaven and Hell” — originally released as B-sides to the album’s singles — a 7″ mono edit of “Lady Evil”, and rare live recordings from 1980-82.
Released one year later, Mob Rules proved just as powerful as its predecessor, anchored by the epic title track, “The Mob Rules”. The song featured prominently in the cult animated film Heavy Metal, making it one of Black Sabbath’s most beloved Dio-era anthems.
That Heavy Metal soundtrack version is included in the bonus tracks, along with a new 2021 mix of the song, and live cuts recorded during the accompanying tours. A previously unreleased full concert recording from a 1982 gig in Portland rounds out the set.
