Black Sabbath announce Supersonic Years - The Seventies Singles Box Set
Having recently finished up their career as a live band the mighty Black Sabbath have announced the release of a new vinyl box set showcasing their singles in the 1970s.
Titled Supersonic Years - The Seventies Singles Box Set, a ten-disc set will be released on June 8th just a few days before Ozzy Osbourne headlines the Sunday at Download Festival.
Included in the box set are includes 7-inch singles of classic hits 'Iron Man', 'Evil Woman' and, of course, 'Paranoid'. Each single will include an ultra-rare or exclusive coloured sleeve.
“We didn’t intend to make a single in the first place,” said Tony Iommi to the Disc and Music Echo in 1971. “But after we’d completed the album, the ‘Paranoid’ track was sufficiently short to be a ‘trailer’ for the LP. We really didn’t expect it to do anything at all. We don’t go into the studio to make singles. We make LPs only. But if there is anything suitable as a result of the recordings, it would be considered, of course.”
Other songs include rare edits of 'Iron Man', 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath', 'Am I Going Insane (Radio)', 'Hard Road' and 'Symptom Of The Universe', alongside extensive liner notes detailing the rarities inside.
