Information

In the summer of 1976, Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward headed to Miami to record Technical Ecstasy at the famed Criteria Studios. The band was coming off a world tour for their previous album, Sabotage, that had found their live performances evolving to include keyboards and synthesizers. These newly incorporated instruments and sounds were then introduced into the recording process on Technical Ecstasy

The Deluxe Edition presents a newly remastered version of the eight-track album, along with an entirely new mix of the album created by Steven Wilson using the original analogue tapes. With eight previously unreleased outtakes and alternative mixes. Among those are different mixes of You Wont Change Me and Rock n Roll Doctor, as well as both outtake and instrumental versions for Shes Gone. The collection concludes with 10 previously unreleased live tracks recorded during the 1976-77 World Tour. The songs touch on different eras of the bands history with early tracks like Black Sabbath, War Pigs (from Paranoid), Symptom Of The Universe, Snowblind and Children Of The Grave alongside new songs Gypsy and Dirty Women. The collection comes with an extensive hardback book 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 colour poster of the iconic Hipgnosis (Storm Thorgerson/Aubrey Powell/Peter Christopherson) futuristic robots image which is perfect for framing. Black Sabbath embraced change in 1976 when the heavy metal innovators started managing themselves and began exploring different sounds on the bands seventh studio album, Technical Ecstasy.
