AllMusic Review by

This import, three-CD box set collects Black Sabbath's first six albums in near-entirety, excising a few lesser tracks and shorter instrumental pieces like "Laguna Sunrise," the only track from We Sold Our Soul for Rock 'n' Roll not present ("Children of the Grave" is here, but mistitled "Embryo," which is actually its instrumental introduction). The tracks are ordered chronologically, often in their original LP sequence. It isn't as necessary to hear Sabbath's albums in their original forms as, for example, Led Zeppelin's, so if you can find it, this set is a less expensive (and definitive) way to acquire all of Black Sabbath's worthwhile material at once.
