Black Sabbath are set to release a super deluxe edition of their Vol. 4 album, featuring 20 previously unreleased recordings.
The box set, which comes in either four-CD or five-LP packages, will drop on February 12. It will contain unreleased outtakes, live recordings, and the original album remastered.
The bonus material includes six outtakes, including an instrumental version of “Under the Sun.”
The album will also come with booklets featuring liner notes with quotes from Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward, rare photos, and a poster with previously unpublished early artwork of the album using the working title “Snowblind.”
“We were going to call this album Snowblind because we’d discovered that magic white powder, but the record company said, ‘No way,'” Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne told Rolling Stone in 2004. “We did so much f—ing coke making it.”
“The coke was good when it was working,” Osbourne recalled. “We used to sniff and jam for days, recording everything on big spools of tape. But it was the beginning of the end. Cocaine was the cancer of the band.”
