Super Deluxe Edition Of The Band’s 1972 Classic Includes Newly Remastered Original Album Plus 20 Previously Unreleased Studio And Live Recordings.-Bolstered by a fresh remastering,Vol 4’s ambitious arrangements and complex grooves have never sounded more inspired and menacing. Originally released in September 1972, the album marked two major changes for the members of Sabbath: Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward. While their previous albums – Black Sabbath, Paranoid, and Master of Reality – were produced by Rodger Bain and recorded in England, they instead chose to produce Vol 4 themselves and record it at the Record Plant in Los Angeles.-The generous addition of bonus material on VOL 4: SUPER DELUXE EDITION begins with six previously unreleased studio outtakes from the original sessions for the album. Each one has been newly mixed by Steven Wilson using the analog multi-tracks. Highlights include outtakes for “Supernaut” and “Changes,” as well an instrumental version of “Under The Sun.”-The set also features 11 additional studio recordings (also newly mixed by Wilson from the analog multi-tracks) that spotlight alternative takes, false starts and snippets of studio dialogue. These tracks transport listeners into the studio with the band and offer some insight into the making of the album. Along with several alternative takes for “Wheels Of Confusion,” these recordings also include outtakes for “The Straightener” and “Snowblind.”-The collection concludes with a searing collection of live performances that re-create a typical setlist from Black Sabbath’s tour forVol 4. Recorded in March 1973 at various stops along the band’s U.K. tour. The recordings were originally slated for a live album that was ultimately shelved

Disc 1 The original album ,remastered and it never sounded better,this album sometimes gets overlooked when discussing the top discs from 1972,this is absolutely up there,opening with the 'lost' classic track 'Wheels Of Confusion,then one brilliant track after another 'Tomorrow's Dream/Changes/Supernaut and of course the timeless classic 'Snowblind'
Disc 2 several outakes and remixes by Steven Wilson and really excellen,worth listening too.
disc 3 odds and sod and more of a curio,really you wont come back to this disc much,truthfully this could have fit onto disc 2. considering disc 2 is only 27 minutes long.
disc 4 essentially and expanded,remixed,remastered version of the 'Live at Last abomination,which originally hit the shelves in 1980,a really poorly produced piece of vinyl, the re issued cd in the 90's was worse, it was slightly better as part of the 2 disc set 'Past Lives'.Well this is easily the best its ever sounded proper care taken to get it to a enjoyable,listenable standard and they have succeeded.
In all honesty you couldnt say it value for money,cos its expensive for what your getting but you aint forced to buy, i was always going to get this,just waited my moment and it dropped to just over £50.
