Black Sabbath release two more deluxe edition LPs (2009)

Black Sabbath

Story by Jack Foley

HOT-on-the-heels of the release of another Black Sabbath Best Of compilation and the deluxe edition of Paranoid come two more deluxe editions from the seminal band’s back catalogue: the eponymous Black Sabbath LP and Master of Reality.

Black Sabbath is part of a series of Black Sabbath deluxe expanded editions.

Each remastered album includes an additional disc of previously unheard outtakes, demos and instrumental tracks taken from the original studio sessions.

Black Sabbath also includes deluxe digipak gatefold packaging with expanded booklets containing rare and previously unseen photographs, comprehensive sleeve-notes telling the story behind each album and include images of rare single covers and memorabilia from the period.

The band’s 1971 third album Master Of Reality comes with the same kind of package, as well as a previously unreleased studio track – Weevil Woman.

The Master Of Reality package also includes deluxe digipak gatefold packaging with expanded booklets containing rare and previously unseen photographs, comprehensive sleeve-notes telling the story behind each album and include images of rare single covers and memorabilia from the period.

Both albums are available from Monday, June 29, 2009.
