For many years now, Tony Martin’s solo debut ‘Back Where I Belong’ has been notoriously hard to find. The album, recorded in 1992 and released while Martin was on haitus from Black Sabbath (having been replaced by the returning Ronnie James Dio, albeit briefly) was deleted almost instantly.
Now almost twenty years later, the album is considered somewhat of a cult classic among melodic rock fans, it’s status helped by guest performances from Whitesnake‘s Neil Murray and Queen legend Brian May.
With the album’s lack of availability and it’s anniversary approaching, it is said that Martin is considering re-releasing the record with bonus tracks. However, at this stage, official details seem somewhat sketchy.
Not to be outdone by the current reunion of the original Black Sabbath members, Martin is keeping a high profile, having only announced another forthcoming project just two weeks ago.
