Black Sabbath albums We Sold Our Soul For Rock 'N' Roll, Technical Ecstasy, Never Say Die! will be re-release this month


On July 30th, Rhino Records is releasing Black Sabbath's final two studio albums and only compilation of the '70s Ozzy Osbourne era. We Sold Our Soul For Rock 'N' Roll, Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die!

We Sold Our Soul For Rock 'N' Roll, 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.

Technical Ecstasy, Black Sabbath's seventh studio record, was released in September of 1976. Technical Ecstasy continued the band's separation from its signature doom and darkness that had been such a trademark of the band's early career. While the album's lyrics dealt with topics such as drug dealers, prostitution, and transvestites, the music itself was seldom dark, and tracks like 'Rock 'n' Roll Doctor' and 'It's Alright' (the latter sung by drummer Bill Ward a decision supported by Ozzy Osbourne), were very different from Black Sabbath's earlier recordings.

Black Sabbath released their eighth studio album, Never Say Die!, in September of 1978. This would be the last studio album featuring Ozzy Osbourne prior to his leaving the band the following year.
