The original Black Sabbath lineup: Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward
Double LP with 17 classic tracks from their first six albums
This compilation, first released in February of 1976, draws on all of the band's six studio (and Ozzy Osbourne era) albums to date, but pays special attention to their first two albums. Features metal mainstays such as "Paranoid," "Iron Man," & "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath."
The U.K's late-'60s blues/hard rock scene also included Led Zeppelin, Cream, Blue Cheer, and other greats. Sabbath's sweeping and masterful metamorphosis away from that tradition spawned heavy metal music, inventing the template for everything that would follow. With crushing rhythms, torpedo riffs, haunting songs, and Ozzy's other-worldly vocals, the band conjured a dark, menacing, and resonant sound that reverberates still.
