Album of the Day
Paranoid (Super Deluxe Edition)
After the success of Black Sabbath's self-titled debut in early 1970, Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward returned that fall with PARANOID. The record became the band's first album to top the U.K. charts and has sold more than 4 million copies in the U.S. alone. Today, songs like “War Pigs,” “Planet Caravan,” “Iron Man,” and of course, “Paranoid,” continue to inspire a new generation of musicians around the world. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the heavy metal classic, a new five-LP version has just been released. Along with the original and Quadraphonic mixes of the album, PARANOID: SUPER DELUXE EDITION includes the official vinyl debut of two storming 1970 live shows – a pre-release concert in Montreux, Switzerland and an oft-bootlegged performance done for Belgian television a few months later.
