Black Sabbath are bringing their first three albums back to stores. Black Sabbath (1970), Paranoid (1970) and Master of Reality (1971) are getting the deluxe reissue treatment on Jan. 22, two days after the band launches its The End tour in Omaha.

Each album will be presented with its 2012 remaster, previously available only on digital formats, alongside a bonus disc of outtakes and alternate versions making their official North American debut.

These three expanded editions, available as double LP sets, will be joined by a reissue of the 2002 live collection Past Lives, which collects concert recordings from 1970-75.

While Sabbath invite fans to celebrate their back catalog, they've reportedly opted against putting together a follow-up to 2013's 13, which marked singer Ozzy Osbourne‘s first full-length effort with the band in 35 years.

"The shortest album of Black Sabbath's glory years, Master of Reality is also their most sonically influential work. Here Tony Iommi began to experiment with tuning his guitar down three half-steps to C#, producing a sound that was darker, deeper, and sludgier than anything they'd yet committed to record. (This trick was still being copied 25 years later by every metal band looking to push the limits of heaviness, from trendy nu-metallers to Swedish deathsters.) Much more than that, Master of Reality essentially created multiple metal subgenres all by itself, laying the sonic foundations for doom, stoner and sludge metal, all in the space of just over half an hour." — AllMusic

Reviewer: Jim
Bought this with Paranoid. This 1 is a cleaner pressing. I didn't hear the MURK the other reviewer heard. I wish I still had the original plus the Vertigo they speak of to compare. Oh well I enjoyed it. Wish I could have bought it as a non delux. Or the option of it coming with the original copy also like when i bought a remastered Ten Years After lp to compare. Reviewed on Rega Planner 3 with upgraded power supply through Moon phono preamp to NAD receiver out to Dynaudio Excite X44 speakers.

This is a great album but. The remaster is even murkier than the original NEMS or Vertigo pressings. So if you have them you are safe. The extra material is just that extra material. For collectors only! Long live Black Sabbath!

Quality Pressing!
