Black Sabbath have released rare and unheard live versions of ‘Heaven and Hell’ and ‘The Mob Rules’ from the upcoming reissues of their two albums of the same name.

These albums released in the Eighties were the only two albums to feature the late Ronnie James Dio as Black Sabbath’s frontman.

Dio replaced Ozzy Osbourne in 1979 after Osbourne’s substance abuse proved too much for the band. With Dio, Black Sabbath released ‘Heaven and Hell’ in 1980 and ‘The Mob Rules’ in 1981. Once Dio left Sabbath, the band went through a string of different singers.

The performance of ‘Heaven and Hell’ is a rarity previously released only in Europe in 1980 as the B-side to the band’s ‘Die Young’ single. The rendition of ‘The Mob Rules’ comes from a previously unreleased April 22nd, 1982 concert at the Portland Memorial Coliseum.

The new reissues will be released on March 5 and can be pre-ordered here. You can listen to both songs and see the full track lists below.

Black Sabbath also have more new reissues coming soon. For more information, read Radio Nova’s report here.
