blacksabbath sabotage4CDWith remastered original recordings and the complete 1975 live show, recorded during the US tour - fourfold CD and fourfold vinyl + 7-inch version - Release date: June 4, 2021 via BMG

BLACK SABBATH were embroiled in a lengthy legal battle with their former manager in 1975, just as they began recording their sixth studio album, ‘Sabotage’. The band felt sabotaged in everything - hence the album title. But this feeling also helped the band to approach the new music with a fiery intensity. Despite all the distraction and problems, the band created one of their most dynamic and unfortunately underrated albums of their legendary career.

BMG pays tribute to the patron saint of Heavy Metal with a super deluxe box set, the new remastered version of the original album will be released together with a full live show that was recorded during the 1975 tour. ‘The Sabotage: Super Deluxe Edition’ will be released on June 4th, 2021 and is available as a 4CD set and 4 LP set on 180-gram vinyl plus a 7” bonus single ‘Am I Going Insane (Radio)’ and ‘Hole In The Sky’ on the B-side with artwork that replicates the very rare Japanese release. The 4x CD and also the 4x LP can be pre-ordered here: www.wickedworld.net.

The remastered version of the original album is available digitally, as a download and streaming on the same day. Click here to listen to the version: https://blacksabbathband.lnk.to/sabotagedlxPR

Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward recorded ‘Sabotage’ in London and Brussels and co-produced the album with Mike Butcher. The eight songs were first released in the US in July 1975 and then in the UK and Europe in September. The album was awarded gold in the US and silver in the UK. ‘Sabotage’ received consistently positive reviews for the great tracks ‘Hole In The Sky’ and ‘Symptom Of The Universe’ as well as for the experimental ‘Supertzar’, which featured harp, mellotron and the English chamber choir.

‘The Sabotage: Super Deluxe Edition’ impresses with 16 live tracks (13 of them previously unreleased). Recorded for the album in 1975 on the US tour. The show includes career-spanning songs from the title track of 1970s debut ‘Black Sabbath’ to ‘Spiral Architect’ and ‘Sabbra Cadabra’ from its predecessor ‘Sabbath Bloody Sabbath’ (1973). From ‘Sabotage’ there is live ‘Hole In The Sky’ and ‘Megalomania’.

The albums have detailed liner notes that tell the story of the album, quotes from the band members, rare photos and press clippings from that time. Also, a Madison Square Garden replica concert book from 1975 and a coloured ‘Sabotage’ tour poster from the same year.
