About Vol 4
Honoured to be working on the catalogue of the mighty Black Sabbath with their classic album Vol 4! It includes a newly remastered version of the original album along with unreleased studio material and a full live concert from the band’s 1973 UK tour. The tapes for the actual album could not be located for remixing, but several session reels were found. One disc in both sets includes all the raw session takes complete with studio chatter, while another disc uses these same session sources to create composite edits using the best takes with more of the sound treatments of the main album applied, so in that sense this disc is closer to representing an alternate version of the main album (albeit no tapes at all were available for 3 songs). And don’t you just love that Wheels of Confusion had the working title of “Bollocks”?!
