Well, first off the recording shows that the original recordings were done back in the late 60's or early 70's. The music is still good, and the main reason it gets only 3 stars is the fact that I was personally disappointed - my main reason to buy the album was WARPIGS, and it's not on the CD. The CD is good enough to keep anyway. The correct Tracklist is: 1. Paranoid; 2. Behind The Wall Of Sleep; 3. Sleeping Village; 4. Warning; 5. After Forever; 6. Supernaut; 7. St. Vitus Dance; 8. Snowblind; 9. Killing Yourself To Live; 10 Sabra Cadabra; 11. The Writ

A quick but very important note to begin with. This is one of two completely different Black Sabbath compilations ("The Sabbath Collection" and "The Collection") for which Amazon is currently gathering together reviews as if they are the same album. These compilations have very different tracklists and were originally released almost a decade apart. So be careful you're buying the right one because you could be reading the wrong review.

This review is for the earliest of those compilations, "The Sabbath Collection". Released in 1985 on Castle Communications (CCSCD 109), this is the one with black cover artwork featuring the title text in red above a silver "SS" logo.

Right. Now that's out of the way, let's get down to business...

"The Sabbath Collection" is an excellent compilation ruined by thoughtless mastering. Allow me to explain.

The opening track of the CD is Paranoid, which on this collection is quite bassy and slightly muffled. It's obviously not taken from first generation tapes, but it's fine for what it is. However, the compiler made a huge error of judgement in choosing to follow Paranoid with three tracks from the bands' debut album, Behind The Wall Of Sleep, Sleeping Village and Warning. In comparison to Paranoid these three have such a vastly superior clarity it's like a veil has been lifted from the speakers....and with a MAJOR leap in volume. If you have this CD cranked loud from the start you'll probably leap out of your skin when the second track begins....

But that ain't the end of the sonic rollercoaster ride provided by this disc. The tracks following the three from the debut album have a volume level closer to that of Paranoid.

I do have this Collection on Vinyl, and I got it from Record Collector when it first came out. It consists of 7 LPs which are in their normal covers.
It also has the Classic Tracks such as "Paranoid", "War Pigs", "Funeral", and "Iron Man". There is a poster inside of the Black Sabbath Logo.
It consists of 58 tracks, as "War Pigs" is on 2 LPS in this set. Produced by Castle in 1985!
