Black Sabbath are cashing in on their reunion success by releasing their first eight albums as digital downloads.
The heavy rockers reformed in 2012 and hit number one around the world with their comeback album “13” last year, and now Ozzy Osbourne and his band are hoping to find digital success on iTunes.com with their 1970s releases.
Albums like “Paranoid,” “Master Of Reality” and “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath” have been mastered specifically for iTunes.
Osbourne says, “It’s about (expletive) time the first eight Black Sabbath albums were made available on iTunes.”
Bandmate Tony Iommi adds, “It’s been a long time trying to explain to fans why the music wasn’t available.”
