Set for release on October 9th is the 50th anniversary vinyl “Super Deluxe Edition” of Black Sabbath's 1970 Paranoid album. The five-LP box will include the original album, the rare 1974 Quad Mix of the album folded down to stereo — plus two 1970 concerts recorded in Montreux, Switzerland and Brussels, Belgium, which make their vinyl debut.
The five-LP set comes with a hardbound book with extensive liner notes featuring interviews with all four band members, rare photos, and memorabilia, a poster, as well as a replica of the tour book sold during the Paranoid tour. The collection is selling for around $110.00.
Ozzy has been performing “Paranoid” going on 50 years, both with Sabbath and on his own, and told us a while back he never gets tired of singing it: “I mean, I always play it every night onstage. It's sort of my theme, y'know. I mean, I love it. It's a great song. Believe me, if I didn't love playing it, I wouldn't play it.”
