My copy has 2 Bonus Tracks records (instead of 1 original album + 1 bonus tracks record)!
Does any one has a copy with 2 records of the original album (and no bonus tracks record)?

Fantastic release pressed at QRP, check out the other Sabbath albums in this series of releases by QRP as they are all brilliant...

My copy has credits inside the cross in the fold-out that say "Ozzy Osborne/vocals, harmonica" and tracks by "..., Osborne", so I guess, they are all misspelt. Do I have the unique copy?

Great, the reissue to go!!! Fantastic & clean sound!!! Great mastering!!!


February 26, 2018

Superb reissue and very affordable given the quality, at least at the moment. I could certainly see this rising in value if it goes out of print though, so grab it while it's there. Great mastering and a spot on pressing.

Blows every pressing so far. Incredible density and details.QRP rules.

Abbey Road Studios, what is the source of this reissue? Is this AAA?

Great SQ. Sounds just as it should, scary AF! The bonus tracks are nice to have too.
