Notes

1st UK issue
Vertigo ''large swirl'' label - with the wording ''Vertigo'' credited below the spindle hole on B-side label.
Matte gatefold sleeve - with the credits mentioning ''Management / Jim Simpson, Big Bear, Birmingham''

Catalogue number 6360 011 appears on B-side label, spine and rear of sleeve above VO PRICE CODE.
To distinguish from other releases: ℗ 1970 is printed above 33 1/3 on right side on label.

Recorded at Regent Sound and Island Studios.
All compositions published by Essex Music Int. Ltd.

℗1970

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 B-side of the record when there are actually four (see pic).

Runouts on all variants are stamped, typical for Phonodisc cuts and pressings.

        Beware! Marketplace and sales history are flooded with obvious fake listings from new accounts that sell this sought after release for ~$20–$50 in VG+ condition. These scam listings have increased recently, Discogs should do something about it. Note that price statistics are not reliable at the moment.

          I have variant 7. However, the last number in the run-out of the B-side of my record is a 9. I think it's upside down, so that should be the 6. Could that be possible?

            Would you nincompoops out there stop falling for the $20 scams on this? How can you be so damn thick.

              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?

                  Mine says......
                  (Side A ): 6360011 1Y//▽420 121
                  (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....

                    help determine which release this applies to.
                    (Side A ): 6360011 1Y//▽420 11
                    (Side B ): 6360011 2Y//▽420 1112
                    2 side - songs separated
                    there are no such numbers.

                      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. 😁 😎
