Notes

Vertigo ''large swirl'' label - with the wording ''Vertigo'' credited below the spindle hole on label side B.

Cat# - 6360 011 appears on B-side label, spine and rear of sleeve above VO PRICE CODE.

Recorded at Regent Sound and Island Studios.

Note:
There is no break in between the tracks "Hand of Doom" and "Rat Salad" - i.e. looks as though there are only three tracks on the B side of the record when there are actually four (see pic).

    I have two copies of the first pressing with the Big Bear Credits. One has white lettering on the spine, the other has red lettering. I know this is the section for reviews, but since other people also discuss pressing details here, I thought it might be okay to ask my question here: has anybody else noticed that there are versions with different color lettering on the spine?

      I have the exact same album in same condition. Why are some 70 and some 600? How do you know how to price?

        (Side B ): 6360011 2Y//▽420 223
        It doesnt mention the ... ''Management / Jim Simpson, Big Bear, Birmingham''
        and it shows only the three tracks on B side
        So no idea which pressing is mine....

            Sabbath's favorite classic album. Sweet 70s, lmao :-) Greetings to lovers of good music from an old USSR hippie hung out:-)) My copy has cute signs of age, the condition of the cover is quite nice, there are scuffs and tears, the media plays with the cute classic sound of an old vinyl record (crackling and background noise, light surface scratches on the record),the label of side two of my record is a little dirty, the original swirl inner sleeve has some liquid stains (and has corresponding light brown spots, possibly from water damage) in a word, the age 50+ of this classic album is well felt, and of course the amazing sound of the 1st UK press. A cool copy from my personal collection, and pleasant soul-warming memories of my youth. 😁 😎

              a request to all who have English editions of 1970. I have the number 1 pressed in on the border of the label and vinyl from 2 sides - in a hot way. does anyone have these. And what does it mean.

                Anybody else notice the high hat in the start of War Pigs is buried in the mix and barely audible?

                  Which early albums have the original version of war pigs, with the air raid siren and drum intro?

                    I think I have an original copy. Everything mentioned except the management listed in the gatefold. For example it has, ℗ 1970 printed above 33 1/3 on right side on label.

                      This album alone proves that the 5 stars rating system on Discogs isn't accurate enough. Like for some video games sites, albums should be rated on a scale from 0 to 100. This way I could rate it the very rare (to me) rating of 100%.
                      Anyone with enough influence to plead my wish to Discogs' team (to change rating system from 1-5 stars to a 0-100% scale, much more accurate) ?
