Black Sabbath will release a 50th anniversary ‘Super Deluxe’ reissue of their classic Paranoid album on October 9.

The 5xLP box features the original album plus a quadraphonic mix – originally released on vinyl and 8-track cartridge in 1974 – made available as a fold-down to stereo mix on vinyl for this set.

The collection’s final three LPs mark the official vinyl debut of two 1970 live performances. The first was recorded on August 31 in Montreux, Switzerland shortly before the release of Paranoid. The second concert was recorded a few months later in Brussels during the band’s performance for Belgian television.
