Black Sabbath’s Iconic Ronnie James Dio Albums Set For Expansion

by Paul Cashmere on January 14, 2021

‘Heaven and Hell’ and ‘Mob Rules’, the initial two Black Sabbath albums with Ronnie James Dio on vocals, will be expanded with rare and previously unreleased music.

Ronnie James Dio joined Black Sabbath in 1979. ‘Heaven and Hell’ was released in 1980, ‘Mob Rules’ in 1981 and then Ronnie was out and Deep Purple’s Ian Gillian took over. Dio returned in 1992 for one more Sabbath album ‘Dehumanizer’.

HEAVEN AND HELL: DELUXE EDITION adds several bonus tracks that have never been released in North America, including versions of “Children Of The Sea” 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.

MOB RULES: DELUXE EDITION boasts an expansive selection of rare and unreleased recordings. Along with additional tracks from Live At Hammersmith Odeon, the collection also includes a newly mixed version of “The Mob Rules.” The cherry on top is an entire concert recorded in 1982 in Portland, OR. Highlights include stellar performances of “Neon Knights” “Heaven And Hell” and “Voodoo.”

Black Sabbath reformed with Ronnie James Dio in 2006 but they could not licence the name. Instead, they rebranded as ‘Heaven and Hell’ and released ‘The Devil You Know’ album in 2009, bringing Dio’s Sabbath catalogue to four studio albums.

Both albums will be released on March 5 2021.
