BLACK SABBATH - Heaven and Hell [Remastered Deluxe Edition] (2021) full

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, expanded with bonus material.
The star of “Heaven and Hell [Remastered Deluxe Edition]” is the 2021 remaster of the main album. While there’s a bonus disc with a great live recording form the album’s tour, it’s the sonic treatment of the studio tracks which shine here.
It’s the one and only R.J.DIO heard clear as never before, and the album, it’s simply one of the best metal LP in history, perhaps the best in BLACK SABBATH’s career.

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.

Some of these never been released in North America, including versions of “Neon Knights” and “Die Young” recorded live in 1980 in Hartford, CT. The set concludes with live rarities like “E5150” and “Neon Knights” that originally appeared in 2007 on the Rhino Handmade’s limited edition collection, Black Sabbath: Live At Hammersmith Odeon.
