According to the Cassette Store Day website, the Sabbath compilation is "a tribute to the masters Black Sabbath!!! Featuring: The Shrine, Zig Zags, Fogg, Banquet, Goya, Babylon, Endless Bummer, Glitter Wizard and more!!!"

I like that there's a Cassette Store Day, honestly. It's a fun little idea for another format that's making a bit of a comeback, so why not do some limited releases?
