A DVD of consisting of rare performance footage will round out a nine-disc Black Sabbath collection due out for the holiday season. The bulk of "Black Box: The Complete Original Black Sabbath (1970-1978)" will consist of remastered versions of the band's eight original studio albums. The set will be released Nov. 4 via Warner Bros./Rhino.
The DVD boasts live performances of "Iron Man," "Paranoid" and a cover of "Blue Suede Shoes," plus a promotional clip for the 1970 album "Black Sabbath."
All of the albums feature the band's original lineup: vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Terry "Geezer" Butler and drummer Bill Ward. Each set -- "Black Sabbath," "Paranoid," "Master of Reality," "Vol. 4," "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath," "Sabotage," "Technical Ecstasy" and "Never Say Die!" -- will be packaged in individual slip cases within the box.
In addition to the albums, the non-album studio track "Evil Woman," originally released as a single in 1970 prior to the band's self-titled debut, is also included.
All of the lyrics from each will be included in an 80-page book, which comprises vintage photographs, a group timeline and essays. Also included will be testimonials from the likes of Rob Zombie, Metallica's James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett and Zakk Wylde, the guitarist in Osbourne's band.
