Black Sabbath releasing ‘Paranoid’ on purple vinyl with an art print for Vinyl Me, Please’s ‘Record of the Month’
Record club Vinyl Me, Please sends members a new, exclusive record each month. Past records have included special editions of The War On Drugs, Youth Lagoon, Four Tet, Wilco, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Blessed Feathers and more, and it's been announced that the 'Record of the Month' for November is the stone classic Paranoid by Black Sabbath.
In case you somehow didn't know, it's the Black Sabbath's second album, arguably their best, and its influence on stoner/doom metal is impossible to overstate.
"The special-edition pressing includes 140g purple vinyl with white marbling sourced from the original analog tapes. Accompanying the album is an original 12" x 12" art print by Pacific Northwest artist Tim Manthey and a custom cocktail recipe."
That's the purple vinyl pictured above. Join Vinyl Me, Please to get your hands on one. A picture of the art print is below.
Earlier this week, Black Sabbath added a leg to their "final" tour which happens in 2016. It now includes two dates at NYC's Madison Square Garden and three other shows in the nearby NYC-area.
