As previously reported, on December 12th BLACK SABBATH – The Vinyl Collection: 1970 – 1978 is being released as a limited edition box-set celebrating the iconic albums featuring the full original Black Sabbath lineup.
Black Sabbath Online has learned more details about the release as follows:
– the package was remastered again by Andy Pearce in 24bit for the 2012 vinyl project – he was responsible for Sabbath’s 2008-2010 remaster release series by Universal.
– there are no plans to release the 2012 Remastering on CD; this is for just the vinyl/digital project.
– inside the box will be a voucher that will let you download the entire box set in a digital format. Given the sale of the box will be for everywhere else except North America, it is assumed the voucher download won’t work in North America.
– there are no plans at this time to release the vinyl albums individually.
– the package is a limited edition (just under 10,000 units) and once its gone its gone.
