Now that the late-season Record Store Day has passed, you would think there’s time to recover before running back out to your favorite store in April for more goodies. However, Black Sabbath have never been ones to play by the rules. Further proof of this has come via the announcement that a new live vinyl record will drop on 1/11/11. Guess what? There’s only going to be 3,000 copies available too.
Black Sabbath: Live at Hammersmith Odeon is a three-LP, 180 gram vinyl with a triple gatefold packaging that will be released through Metal Club. It features Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Terry “Geezer” Butler, and Vinny Appice at Hammersmith Odeon, London in January 1982 during the band’s The Mob Rules tour. The setlist includes the Dio-era “Neon Knights,” “Heaven And Hell,” and “Children Of The Sea” as well as earlier classics like “War Pigs” and “Paranoid.”
Sadly, for a large portion of Black Sabbath fans, Metal Club only has stores in the U.S and Canada. Visit their website to find all of their locations and get the boots out again. Looks like January 11th will be a long day for metal fans.
