‘Paranoid’ gets 50th anniversary treatment

As vinyl continues to see a resurgence not only in interest, but in sales, Black Sabbath are climbing aboard the train and celebrating the 50th anniversary of their seminal 1970 album ‘Paranoid’ with a new vinyl box set due on October 9th.

The album, ‘Paranoid: Super Deluxe Edition” should have incredible appeal to fans. It will include material spread across five LPs, a hardbound book featuring interviews with all four band members, rare photos, a classic-era band poster, as well as a replica of the tour book sold during the 1970-71 Paranoid tour.



Also part of the set will be a rare 1974 mix of the original album in stereo, and the release of two concerts from 1970, Montreux and Brussels, both of which are pressed on vinyl for the first time. The original album featured classic songs “War Pigs,” “Iron Man” and of course the seminal title track. It topped the U.K. chart and went on to sell more than 4 million copies in the U.S.

The collection is available for pre-order now, and a complete track listing is shown below.

Black Sabbath’s classic lineup included singer Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi, drummer Bill Ward and bassist Geezer Butler. The band are widely accepted as one of the most influential trailblazers of heavy metal.
