Black Sabbath’s albums from the 1970s are now available digitally. The group’s early discs are making their debut this week on iTunes, marking the first time fans in the U.S. have been able to get the material in this format. And band members are happy to see it happen. Guitarist Tony Iommi admits he’s spent “a long time trying to explain to fans why the music wasn’t available,” while frontman Ozzy Osbourne and bassist Geezer Butler add that the digital releases are long overdue.
The band’s self-titled debut, “Paranoid,” “Masters of Reality,” and “Vol. 4” are among the releases. The roll out also includes “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath,” “Sabotage,” “Technical Ecstasy,” and “Never Say Die” — the band’s last album with Ozzy until last year’s “13.” Sabbath’s 1976 compilation album “We Sold Our Soul for Rock ‘n’ Roll” and the 2006 best-of set “Greatest Hits 1970-1978” are now available as well.
