(hennemusic) Black Sabbath will release a Super Deluxe Edition of their 1970 album classic, "Paranoid", on November 11. The 4-disc set includes the original album, a rare quad mix of the record folded down to stereo, and two live shows from 1970 - one from Montreux and one from Brussels.

The quad mix included on the set's second disc comes from vinyl and 8-track pressings made in 1974, which have long been out of print. The concerts were recorded around the time of the album's release, with the Montreux show taking place before the album was released.

"Paranoid: Super Deluxe Edition" includes a hardbound book with new interviews with all band members, photos, a poster and a replica of the book sold during the group's tour in support of the album.

Black Sabbath's second studio release, "Paranoid" delivered an entire album of classic tracks with songs like "War Pigs", "Iron Man", "Hand Of Doom" and the title track, which went on to become the band's signature song.

The project topped the UK charts and peaked at No. 12 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to sales of more than 4 million copies in the States alone.

"'Paranoid' is important because it's the blueprint for metal," writes Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford in the liner notes. "It led the world into a new sound and scene."
