Black Sabbath releases all Ozzy Osbourne fronted albums on iTunes

When Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Terry “Geezer” Butler and Bill Ward formed Black Sabbath in 1969, they created a signature sound that set the blueprint for heavy music and influenced generations of disciples for years to come. For the first time, the full catalog from the original Black Sabbath lineup is now available digitally in the U.S. and has been mastered specifically for iTunes, ensuring the delivery of the music to listeners with increased audio fidelity, more closely replicating what the artists, recording engineers, and producers intended.

Available exclusively on the iTunes Store worldwide, fans now have the ability to download all albums in one newly created bundle The Complete Studio Albums 1970-1978, eight legendary studio albums, two classic compilations, or simply purchase each song individually.

“It’s about fucking time the first eight Black Sabbath albums were made available on iTunes in the U.S.,” said Ozzy Osbourne.

“Great news, been a long time trying to explain to fans why the music wasn’t available,” Tony Iommi commented.

“It’s going to be great to finally have the catalog accessible on iTunes,” Geezer Butler notes.

The Complete Studio Albums 1970-1978 features the band’s collected studio works for Warner Bros. Records from the 1970’s, including their iconic eponymous debut (1970), the multi-platinum landmark Paranoid (1970), the platinum albums Master Of Reality (1971), Vol. 4 (1972), and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (1973), and the gold-certified Sabotage (1975), Technical Ecstasy (1976), and Never Say Die! (1978). Also available is their classic 1976 compilation We Sold Our Soul For Rock ‘N’ Roll as well as 2006’s Greatest Hits 1970-1978, which was released in connection with their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

The entire set contains 72 tracks and runs for $59.99.
