BLACK SABBATH

TECHNICAL ECSTASY DELUXE EDITION AVAILABLE OCTOBER 1ST

4-CD And 5-LP Versions Of Black Sabbath’s Seventh Studio Album Features The Original Album Newly Remastered,

A Brand New Mix Of The Album By Steven Wilson,

Plus Previously Unreleased Outtakes, Alternative Mixes, And Live Tracks

PRE ORDER HERE

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.

BMG honors this daring album with a collection that includes a newly remastered version of the original, a brand-new mix by Steven Wilson, plus more than 90 minutes of previously unreleased outtakes, alternative mixes and live tracks. TECHNICAL ECSTASY: SUPER DELUXE EDITION will be available on October 1st as a 4-CD set and 5-LP set on 180-gram black vinyl. Both the 4-CD and 5-LP versions are available for pre-order HERE. The remastered studio album will be available the same day on digital download and streaming services. The newly remastered version of ‘Back Street Kids’ is available today digitally. Click HERE to listen now.

In the summer of 1976, Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward headed to Miami to record Technical Ecstasy at the famed Criteria Studios. The band was coming off a world tour for their previous album, Sabotage, that had found their live performances evolving to include keyboards and synthesizers. These newly incorporated instruments and sounds were then introduced into the recording process on Technical Ecstasy.  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, along with an entirely new mix of the album created by Steven Wilson using the original analog tapes.

TECHNICAL ECSTASY: SUPER DELUXE EDITION comes with eight previously unreleased outtakes and alternative mixes. Among those are different mixes of “You Won’t Change Me” and “Rock ’n’ Roll Doctor,” as well as both outtake and instrumental versions for “She’s Gone.” The collection concludes with 10 previously unreleased live tracks recorded during the 1976-77 Technical Ecstasy World Tour. The songs touch on different eras of the band’s history with early tracks like “Black Sabbath” and “War Pigs” alongside new songs “Gypsy” and “Dirty Women.”

The collection comes with an extensive booklet featuring artwork, liner notes, rare memorabilia and photos from the era, plus a replica of the 1976-77 world tour concert book and a large colour poster.

Would be nice for streaming sites to have the actual deluxe material on these BS reissues instead of digging through a torrent search.  Hell, Qobuz, which I use, has yet to have the dexlue editions of the classic Metallica albums which will hopefully change when black album is reissued next month.

The extras for Vol. 4 are on Youtube, though.

But if you pass that year in The Schedule by the time you get it, you'll have to wait until you've listened to every important album made up through 2021 before you go back and listen to it!

I'm thinking the people making these massive boxsets could expect much lower sales if all of the bonus goodies were put up on streaming.

I still remember buying the original on day of release. Ah! Happy memories!

It's a bit of an unloved album but I woud put it higher than a load of the later stuff.

I will be interested to hear what Steven Wilson has done to it.

No I just felt like it was enough, and bands were beginning to take 5 years and sometimes 8 years between albums by then. So there was less and less each year.

Wilson mixing Sabbath sounds kind of weird on paper.
