When Black Sabbath started mysteriously teasing The Ten Year War, the widely-accepted assumption was that it would be a reissue of its cartoonish 1978 promotional book for the Never Say Die! album. If you were one of those people, you were right! You were also missing a ton of neat goodies.
Black Sabbath will release The Ten Year War on September 29 via BMG, which will include the following.
- All Black Sabbath albums from Black Sabbath to Never Say Die! on 180 gram splatter vinyl, remastered from the original tapes by Andy Pearce.
- The Japanese 7" of "Evil Woman (Don't Play Your Games With Me)" / "Black Sabbath."
- The Chilean 7" radio promo of "Paranoid"/"The Wizard."
- Crucifix Black Sabbath USB necklace that contains MQA files of the first eight Black Sabbath albums.
- The Ten Year War book.
- Hardback book, featuring accolades from the cream of rock royalty, coupled with official and candid iconic photography of the band during their 1970s tours, recording sessions and photo shoots.
- "Tenth Anniversary World Tour" 1978 official program, impeccably reproduced.
- 1972 Seattle Centre Arena show tour poster.
