Black Sabbath / Paranoid box sets

40th anniversary • 5LP vinyl box • 4CD set re-available

Black Sabbath‘s influential second album Paranoid will be reissued as vinyl and CD super deluxe box sets in October in celebration of the 40th anniversary.

Before you get too excited, the first thing to say is that the 4CD super deluxe is identical to the 2016 box set from Rhino. It includes the 1970 album, the 1974 Quad Mix folded down to stereo, plus two concerts from 1970: Brussels and Montreux. I still don’t understand why this doesn’t include the actual multi-channel Quad Mix on DVD from the 2009 CD+DVD deluxe edition. Weird. This comes with a 60-page hardcover book, a replica tour book and a poster.

What is new, is this box set on vinyl; it’s the same content as on the CD set, but across five vinyl records. So LPs one and two are the album and the folded down Quad Mix, while the two live concerts are on vinyl for the first time across the remaining three records (one and a half sides each). The vinyl set also comes with a hardcover book (with extensive liner notes featuring interviews with all four band members, rare photos, and memorabilia), a poster, and a replica of the tour book sold during the Paranoid tour.

Paranoid is reissued on 9 October 2020, via Sanctuary Records. Both sets are available via the official store which also has a bundle, for those interested.
