    I liked the Paranoid Deluxe,very good as for modern remasters,although I admit I don`t have the original vinyl or preffered digital mastering to compare to.I like the outtake cd for the ozzy-less tunes,I`m looking forward to hearing BS & MOR and the outtakes.Anyone know if more remasters are in the works?

    Yet another mastering of the catalogue?

    If it's so easy to lease these tapes, why doesn't Audio Fidelity get a hold of them and make a mint?

    Judging from the last one, I say "meh". Unless you are a 5.1 surround sound fan, anyway. The bonus cd of the last one was a snooze-fest.
    Still, I'll be positive and wait until I see what they come up with, as these are my fave BS albums.

    I REALLY need to get surround sound, I know!

    Thanks. Price dropped. I ended up ordering these three Sab DEs and the "Stormbringer" remaster w/ the quad mix. After shipping, it still came out to $80US for the four. Ouch...but I guess it could be much worse. I wonder if the Sab ones will end up being domestic releases...heck, all of them.
  8. Wow, these are maybe my two favorite Black Sabbath albums. I love the bluesy sound of the debut an MOR is just a masterpiece with its dark sound.

    Hopefully the mastering will be good. I haven't heard the new Paranoid deluxe edition, but judging by some posts on this forum, the mastering is at least decent.

    This is only the second remastering of the catalog outside of the US (not including Japan). Orig. Castle CD's > Castle 1996 remasters > Sanctuary/Universal 2009 remasters. In US, orig. WB CD's > Rhino 2002 remasters. There are also the Creative Sounds Ltd. gray label jobs. PS. It is most definitely not 'easy to lease these tapes'! Trust me.

    I'd like the first album, since it is my favorite of theirs.

    What about the Castle Legends series, from 1991 I think?

    You should know since you worked for Ozzy.
  14. I know how you feel. On many occasions I would drop a sawbuck and a half or more picking up a new release/re-release with their great packaging and artwork. Then usually when listening to it I could not understand what all the fuss was about, as most sounded like crap at higher volumes. After visiting the Hydrogen site a bunch of times I understood why. Anyhow as I'm sure most of you on this forum know, every album is a case by case basis with neither older or newer definitively equaling better. Now my goal is just to get a CD which has good sound without having to throw down a pile of green.

    Looks like everyone's had a shot at them, eh?

    If Rhino can lease them, AF sure can.

    I've had these two on pre-order on Amazon UK since sometime in April... They were last scheduled to come out on June 1st, but they've been delayed again...

    Wouldn't the fact that Warner Bros. is the U.S. label for the Black Sabbath catalog mean that Rhino didn't have to lease them, because Warners/Rhino already owns them. :confused:

    Yeah Rhino is a wholly-owned WMG subsidiary.

    Rhino's remasters were done from the tapes Warner has, these are being done from the ones Sanctuary has which are a lower generation.

  24. What was the lowest price for these on up until now?

    It's been going down... I pre-ordered them at 16 quid each, then they went down to 13 and, as of today, they're at 10 each... which I think it's pretty good value...
