Four-Disc Collection includes 2012 Remaster & Rare Quad Mix of Influential Classic, 2 Concerts from the Era & Hardbound Book!

"Paranoid is important because it's the blueprint for metal. It led the world into a new sound and scene," writes Judas Priest front man Rob Halford in the liner notes to this Super Deluxe Edition of Black Sabbath's influential 1970 classic, Paranoid. The new collection arrives in the Fall of 2016 just as the band nears the conclusion of its triumphant final tour, appropriately titled The End.

Paranoid: Super Deluxe Edition includes the 2012 remaster of the original album, in addition to a rare 1974 quad mix of the album folded down to stereo, plus two concerts from 1970, from Montreux and Brussels. The four-disc set comes with a hardbound book with extensive liner notes featuring new interviews with all four band members, rare photos, and memorabilia, a poster, as well as a replica of the tour book sold during the Paranoid tour.

After the success of band'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 four 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.

Paranoid: Super Deluxe Edition includes – for the first time ever on CD – a Quadraphonic Mix of the album. Originally released on vinyl and 8-track cartridge in 1974, but subsequently long out of print, it has now been made available as a fold-down to stereo mix exclusively for this set. The collection's final two discs mark the official debut of two 1970 live performances.

The first was recorded on August 31 in Montreux, Switzerland shortly before the release of Paranoid. It captures the band, already a tight musical unit, thundering through new songs like "Hand Of Doom" and "Iron Man" while mixing in "N.I.B." and "Behind The Wall Of Sleep" from their debut. The other concert was recorded a few months later in Brussels during the band's television performance for the public broadcaster RTBF. Rough bootlegs of this classic show have circulated in the past, but they've never sounded this good. For this set, the entire show has been sourced directly from the RTBF master tapes resulting in the best sound quality to date.
