Black Sabbath - Technical Ecstasy Super Deluxe Edition [Buy Now]
In 1976, Black Sabbath moved their sound forward a bit, changed things up and made a lot of their fans pretty angry in the process. This new 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 color poster. This set may shed a bit more light onto a very divisive album in the Sabbath catalog.
