    This is my most expensive Sabbath purchase to date and well worth it.

    Thank you Jeff, now all I have to do is get me a turntable, lol!!!

    Beautiful coffee table book, for me the priceless quotes are Nick Mason and Frank Zappa, does my heart good to see the Sabb Four get such recognition from these legends.

    My my next Sabbath piece is the first 70’s vinyl Box Set I missed out on in time I’ll get it.

    I wish White Wizard was still on these boards, I know he wanted this as well.

    I hope he is well and having a wonderful Christmas.

    Well it's so expensive, wishing santa brings it is the only chance of getting it.

    Please check out this new video from a new band.

    And definitely Vol. 4 sounds better "darker" and it's in large part because the entire album changes so much. If you brighten up "Wheels Of Confusion" (which is a bit muddy) with treble then you would have to make sure to switch gears for "Tomorrow's Dream," which has totally different production.

    I think this version of Vol. 4 sounds like tin. It grates on the ears. I've no idea how anyone could wish to listen to this album in this fashion. And I have to figure Andy Pearce was asked to master it like this, because his 2009 Vol. 4 sounds NOTHING like this.

    Vol. 4 has complex production with layers and different textures involved. You just can't open it up this far, or certain parts will tip over into earbleed territory.

    Probably the worst of it is how Bill's drums sound. I love the drum production on Vol. 4 but they sound recessed and shrill with this approach.

    The original UK LP mastered by George Peckham absolutely slays this. And plenty of other pressings as well. The original US pressing (Warner greenie) has HUGE bass and FAR less top end than this. When they talk about listening to different pressings that is all bullshit if you're going to master like this. No 70s version of Vol. 4 ever sounded a thing like this.
    Another amazing post, Jeff, thank you.
