This compilation, originally released in February of 1976, draws on all of the bands 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," and "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath."
The original lineup of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward, four childhood friends from the north of England-grew out of the U.K's late-60s blues/hard rock scene, which 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.

Comments about WEA Black Sabbath - We Sold Our Soul for Rock 'N' Roll Vinyl LP:
Black Sabbath is great!! I ordered this LP set online, to be picked up in store,I talked for a while but didn't open it there. It was just an album after all. At home when I opened it, i found that the shrink wrap had been opened and it is a used album. I bought a "close-out" not a "used LP". Very disappointed.
