This Special Edition of arguably one of Black Sabbath’s heaviest albums, features the vocals of the late, great Ronnie James Dio along with founder members Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler, completed by the heavy hitting drums of Vinny Appice; the line-up that created 1981′s epochal Mob Rules and 1983′s Live Evil.
Remastered by Andy Pearce, who has overseen the remastering of the entire Classic Rock award winning Black Sabbath catalogue (released earlier this year to much success), this edition is expanded with the single edit of Master Of Insanity, an alternate version of Letters From Earth that originally appeared as the b-side to the TV Crimes single, and a version of Time Machine recorded for the soundtrack to the movie Wayne’s World. In addition, the set also includes five rare live tracks from Florida’s Sundome recorded at the beginning of the Dehumanizer tour in July 1992, including a previously unreleased live version of Master Of Insanity. The set will include liner notes from Classic Rock and Metal Hammer’s Dom Lawson, based on new interviews with Tony Iommi.
This Special Edition of Dehumanizer is available as a deluxe 2CD digipak and as a double gatefold LP on 180gm audiophile vinyl, ably completing the Black Sabath catalogue reissues.
