Black Sabbath, Paranoid, Masters of Reality out now. They look interesting.
Of course most of us have already heard these over and over many times before. I myself have bought the 8-track, cassette, albums, cd's over and over of Sabbath's collection. But the 2nd disc in each set makes these worthwile.
Paranoid, for instance, has a lot of the songs with just the instrumentals which is very interesting. I will try that one out first. And then move on to the others.

There is also a "new" release called "The End" that has 4 unreleased songs from "13" on it along with some live tracks. Looking forward to listing to that soon. I like pretty much every song previously released on the "13" deluxe edition.

The remasters for the first three use the same mastering as the MFiT and HDtracks versions. The bonus discs are pretty fluffy even compared to the ones on the new Led Zeppelin releases.

I have the Black Box that came out back around 2004 containing the first 8 albums. Are these releases much improved over that set?

IMO, hell yes. The Black Box to me was too bright. Plus the beginning of War Pigs has been fixed.

Don't get too excited. I have it. There's a reason the 4 tracks didn't make "13". They're OK, but wouldn't replace any of the "13" tracks. The 4 live tracks are decent though, even if you can hear Ozzy struggling at times.

Just listened to it this morning and totally disagree. The worst thing I would label them with is being more of the same. Have zero interest in the live tracks, only downloaded the 4 unreleased songs.

I just picked up Paranoid today. Listening to the 2nd disc, I like it. I haven't been through all of it yet. But I like what i'm hearing so far. The first disc remasters are from 2012, so they're not brand new, but I really bought this for the bonus discs. Plus the packaging is a plus if you're in to that also. It does remind me a lot of the Led Zep remasters. But I loved them too. I hope they go through all or at least the Ozzy years of Sabbath with these.

You went to the show too? I saw it for sale there that night but I did not pick it up.

I have most of the Deluxe Editions (s/t -> Sabotage,Heaven,Mob and Born) from 2009 or so that sound fine by me so I will not be picking these up. However I am not sure how easy or cheap those are now.

The Paranoid reissue's the same as the 3 disc set that was previously released but is missing the quad mix.

Bonus material aside. would it be worth upgrading the Castle remasters from the 90's? I have those and have no complaints.

Are they going to release a new set of 3 anytime soon?

I got the remasters of Vol 4 and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.

Both of them are muddy and muffled. Very disappointing.

That is disappointed as I really liked Vol. 4. Will they do a remastered with Dio? Mob Rules is my favorite of his.
