Born Again is the eleventh studio album by English heavy metal band Black Sabbath. Released in August of 1983, it is the first and only album the group recorded with lead vocalist Ian Gillan, best known for his work with Deep Purple. It was also the last Black Sabbath album for nine years to feature original bassist Geezer Butler and the last to feature original drummer Bill Ward, though Ward did record a studio track with the band fifteen years later on their 1998 live album Reunion

By all means, a collaboration between Black Sabbath and Ian Gillan should have ruled. Dio’s induction led to Heaven And Hell, the album that saved the band from crippling mediocrity. Born Again has no such luck, however. The songwriting standards are back to the way they were with Technical Ecstasy, and for whatever reason, Gillan’s vocals to not fit nearly as well as they should have. Born Again is a disappointing chapter in the band’s history. Although not as articulate as Dio, Ian Gillan had an amazing voice throughout the 70′s. Particularly in his shrieking falsettos, there is no doubt that he was one of his era’s vocal greats when it came to hard rock.

Record company pressure forced Iommi to call it a Black Sabbath album, hence the official name of the band on this album being Black Sabbath featuring Tony Iommi. The featuring part was dropped when they went on tour, however. As of 2011, this album has never been formally released on CD in North America by Warner Bros. I’ve been asked a few times why the band used that vs some other bootlegs out there of a superior quality. This is a cool video interview with Tony Iommi from 1986 talking about what happened inbetween Born Again, Seventh Star, why Glenn Hughes didn’t work out. Good video. Please let me know if it’s not working.

Seventh Star shouldn't even have been a Black Sabbath record. Label pressure has led to more dissapointing releases, and the Black Sabbath name suffered from this ill fate just as many others. The group's twelth album, already rather strangely headed with Black Sabbath featuring Tony Iommi, was meant to be Iommi's first solo album, but of course, the label (correctly) felt more money was to be made if the name Black Sabbath was put on the album rather than Tony Iommi. On all of Sabbath's records up till Mob Rules, it could be clearly heard who was playing guitar. Born Again and this album do not have this, and Iommi was the one that made the band in the first place. Handling vocals this time is Glenn Hughes, formerly of Mark III/IV Deep Purple, on bass we have Dave Spitz (yes, no Geezer either), and KISS drummer Eric Singer can be found behind the kit.

Tony Iommi with Glenn Hughes chronology. The 1996 DEP Sessions. Seventh Star is the 12th studio album by English rock band Black Sabbath. Released in January 1986, it features musicians Geoff Nicholls, Eric Singer, and Dave Spitz, playing keyboards, drums, and bass, respectively, and Glenn Hughes, ex-Deep Purple bassist and vocalist, as lead singer. The album was the group's first release without bassist Geezer Butler, who left the band in 1984 after the Born Again tour. It was originally written, recorded, and intended to be the first solo album by Iommi. Due to pressures by Warner Bros.

An often misunderstood and underrated album, 1986's Seventh Star was never intended to be a Black Sabbath release, as the band had effectively broken up following its disastrous 1984 tour in support of career low point Born Again. Instead, Seventh Star was conceived as guitarist Tony Iommi's first solo project, and it was only record company pressure that forced him to resurrect his longtime band's moniker at the last minute.
