Heaven and Hell box set?


Stuck in the middle of the Priest-H&H-Motorhead-Testament tour announcement is the following:

Heaven & Hell will be supporting the release of The Rules Of Hell, a five-CD boxed set available on July 22nd from Rhino Records which features re-mastered versions of all four Dio-era Black Sabbath albums ('Heaven and Hell,' 'Mob Rules,' 'Live Evil,' and 'Dehumanizer') in a deluxe package with new liner notes.


This sounds great and what the Dio Years should have been. I hope they include all the b-sides and maybe some additional vintage live stuff.

Maybe eventually Black and Blue will see a proper release.

If anyone learns anymore about this box set, please let us know.

Black-Sabbath.com webmaster Joe Seigler has issued the following update:

A couple of days ago I posted the news that there will be a box set based on the four DIO-era BLACK SABBATH releases. I posed some questions of band management regarding some details on the set, and I can now bring you an update based on what I found out.

Individual Releases: The albums will likely eventually be released on their own, but no plans yet, and even that's not for sure. For now you should consider them part of the box set only.

Remastering: This is not the same remastering sessions that produced last year's The Dio Years releases. This is a totally new remastering session from the Dio Years sessions.

Five Discs: The press release stated that there would be five discs in this release. The five discs will be Heaven & Hell, The Mob Rules, Dehumanizer and Live Evil. Live Evil will be two discs as it was when it was originally released way back when, so that's where we get the fifth disc.

Extra Tracks: There are no extra tracks here, the albums are as they were originally released. I specifically asked about the alternate version of 'Mob Rules' (Heavy Metal soundtrack), and the alternate version of 'Letters To Earth' ('TV Crimes' single). Was told they're not being included. Less clear are the two versions of 'Time Machine'. The 1992 version released in the US had two versions (standard & Wayne's World). The WW version was not on versions outside of the US. Since this is being released by Warner/Rhino, it's likely the one on here will have both, but I don't know that for sure at this time.

I was told the "new" extras will be extensive liner notes and things along those lines. I also do not know at this time what the packaging will look like. One of the emails I got said that had yet to be completed, so I doubt there's full decisions made on this stuff yet. Once I get some artwork and further details, I'll be sure to update straight away."

This is kind of a bummer that no rare b-sides or rare live material will be included. The original CDs of those albums aren't that bad. I will have to wait and see before deciding to purchase it.


I really don't understand these record companies. It is stuff like this that leads to peer to peer sharing. Would it have killed them to do this properly? Why would fans buy what they already have again? For some new liner notes?

Maybe Ronnie, Tony and Geezer are keeping the rare stuff for after they retire. I think if they wanted some product for the summer tour they should have released a live Dehumanizer show like the Hammersmith release.

    That's right art! Come up with something new. Pearl Jam released a bunch of live concert cd's years ago. That's what H&H should do. Record the shows professionly and release them. Flood the market with Sabbath Pro boots!
