WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA - NOVEMBER 11: (L-R) Musicians Bill Ward, Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath appear at a press conference to announce their first new album in 33 years and a world tour in 2012 at the Whisky a Go Go on November 11, 2011 in West Hollywood, California.

Because you need to throw in some extra goodies if you’re going to make us buy albums we already own.


Due on September 6, The Vinyl Collection 1970-1978 will feature the band’s first eight albums: Black Sabbath, Paranoid, Master of Reality, Vol. 4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Sabotage, Technical Ecstasy, and Never Say Die! In addition, the set will include a 12-inch compilation entitled Monomania, which will compile their mono singles along with two previously-unreleased mixes.


Oh, and you’ll get a reproduction of the 7″ single “Evil Woman,” backed with “Wicked World.” But you’d better get it right when it comes out: the set is a limited-edition, 3000-copy run, and you know it’ll sell out fast.
