BLACK SABBATH – Technical Ecstasy [Super Deluxe Edition] (2021)

As part of the current BLACK SABBATH discography reissues their seventh studio album, ”Technical Ecstasy”, is getting its Super Deluxe Edition box set.
The reissue comes as 4-CD and 5-LP, offering a newly remastered version of the original album, along with a brand new Steven Wilson stereo mix. SW’s remix doesn’t include the Bill Ward penned-and-sung ‘It’s Alright’, which is included in its original single mono mix. One presumes they couldn’t locate the multi-track from this song.
The third disc in the box offers unheard outtakes and alternate mixes (also remixed by Wilson) while the final CD provides 10 previously unreleased live tracks from concert recordings from the 1976-77 world tour.
Here, remastered, ”Technical Ecstasy” sounds even huger than ever. The Steven Wilson new mix is superb, there’s interesting never heard outtakes, and on the bonus Live World Tour 1976-77 disc, the power of Black Sabbath live is captured in all its steamrolling glory…

BLACK SABBATH – Technical Ecstasy (2021 Remaster)

BLACK SABBATH‘s album ”Technical Ecstasy” will have its Deluxe Edition available on October 1st as a 4-CD set and 5-LP set on 180-gram black vinyl. This fresh 2021 remaster of the original LP will be available as standalone version too.
Black Sabbath embraced change in 1976 when the heavy metal innovators started managing themselves and began exploring different sounds on the band’s seventh studio album, ”Technical Ecstasy”. The record reached #13 in the U.K. and was certified gold in the U.S.
The new songs encompassed a wide range of styles from the hard charging “Back Street Kids” and ballad “It’s Alright,” to the funky “All Moving Parts (Stand Still)” and progressive “Gypsy.” The album also featured the single “It’s Alright,” which was the first Sabbath song to feature lead vocals by Ward.
The Deluxe Edition presents a newly remastered version of the eight-track album using the original analog tapes…

BLACK SABBATH – Vol. 4 (2021 Remaster)

Perhaps one of the most underrated BLACK SABBATH albums, “Vol. 4“, is getting a fresh remastering this 2021, and will be an expanded, deluxe edition including some unreleased material.
With this new sonic treatment, ”Vol. 4” gets a new, multi-dimensional sound.
On ”Vol 4”, there was a far wider scope to things than on the doomy Paranoid, or the bonged-out Master Of Reality. Songs like ‘Cornucopia’ and ‘Under The Sun’ boasted trademark bottom-end Iommi riffs, but elsewhere there were more twitchy, upbeat moments like the groovy ‘Supernaut’, epic opener ‘Wheels Of Confusion’, and even a piano ballad in ‘Changes’.
But there’s also a shine to everything on ”Vol 4”, an energy that makes ‘Tomorrow’s Dream’ and ‘Snowblind’ arrive far more swaggering and confident than previously. Then Sabbath had been good. Now, they seemed to say, we’re f@cking great, dudes.

OZZY OSBOURNE – Blizzard Of Ozz [40th Anniversary Expanded Deluxed Edition] (2020)

It’s been almost 40 years since the release of Black Sabbath frontman OZZY OSBOURNE‘s debut solo album ‘Blizzard Of Ozz‘ and the singer is celebrating that milestone by releasing a 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of the album on September 18, 2020, which will feature seven live tracks not previously available in digital format.
The new package includes Ozzy hits: “Crazy Train,” which will hit certified 5x platinum status to coincide with its September release date; the gold-certified (in four countries) “Mr. Crowley” (both of which feature Randy Rhoads on guitar); along with “Suicide Solution,” plus live versions of seven tracks that are currently unavailable digitally.
The record was ultimately certified 5x platinum and was ranked #9 on Rolling Stone‘s list of “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time” in the U.S.; platinum (or multi-platinum) in another 12 countries and gold in an additional 13 countries.
Easily one of the greatest singer-solo debut in Rock history.
A must have classic
