"Born Again" was the only album by BLACK SABBATH featuring Ian Gillan — who was at the time a solo artist and former singer for DEEP PURPLE — on vocals. 

Gillan had first turned down the offer to join BLACK SABBATH but his manager later convinced him to a meeting with Iommi and the band's bass guitarist, Geezer ButlerIommi and Butler met with Gillan at The Bear public house in Oxford and Gillan officially joined the band in February 1983. 

Released in October 1983, "Born Again" was a commercial success. It was the highest-charting BLACK SABBATH album in the United Kingdom since "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" and became an American Top 40 hit. Despite this, it became the first BLACK SABBATH album to not have anyRIAA certification (gold or platinum) in the U.S.

I'll surely be giving this a listen, the live recording might be interesting with Smoke on the Water and all.

I donīt like the album much either, so I doubt that Iīll spend my money on this one. And Smoke on the Water played by Black Sabbath ainīt gonna change my interest much.

I like the album, but I don't really feel the need to buy a de luxe expanded version.

I'm also in the category of not really liking this album.  I wanted to enjoy Ian Gillan with Sabbath, but it really didn't work out so well.

Entertaining might have been a better word there Tongue

But yeah, I like some of the songs on the album, but I too won't be buying this. But when it comes to the library I'll be the first in queue.
