About Technical Ecstasy

Technical Ecstasy was the band’s seventh album, released in 1976, and it saw Sabbath experimenting with a more layered and produced sound. Unlike with the previous deluxe for Vol 4, for which tapes were missing and only a handful of out-takes could be mixed, multi-tracks for all but one song from Technical Ecstasy were located, so this time new stereo remixes were made, along with alternate mixes which remove many of the more symphonic overdubs, incorporating instead alternate guitar solos, vocal takes, and other overdubs not used in the original album mix. Additionally there is an out-take of “She’s Gone”, which in contrast to the orchestral album version is for the full electric band including mellotron choir, making it sound closer to the ballads from earlier Sabbath albums.
