  • I was going to wait a bit to order these. I did this with "Heaven & Hell" and "Mob Rules" and saved a few buck, but now after seeing problems that some are having I was worried I might not get these CD's. I did some searching this evening and found www.cdwow.us

    They are showing both CD's in stock for $22.99 with free shipping. I ordered both. I hope those still looking are able to find them.

    • Got my copies in the mail today from amazon.uk. The packaging, and the cd's are in perfect condition, no shipping damage. Haven't listened to them yet, will in a little while.

      • I can kick myself for cancelling my order at the last minute. Ebay already started the gouging. Does anyone know where to get these at a reasonable price?

          Wish I could say the same, there is a crease on the spines of my copies of EI and MR Deluxe editions. At least the cds are still in tact.

          • Well bloody hell. I just checked my shipment from www.cdwow.com, and what do you know, both CD's are on backorder.

                Man that sucks. I stopped trying to get new releases from Amazon after they botched my pre-order of The Devil You Know. Surely if you order something 2 months in advance they'd be able to ship it out on release date, but apparently not...

                      So HMV is NOT an established outlet but ARE an established retailer?
                      I canceled my AMZ UK order since they ran out and paid $20 more on ebay for EI. I'll order 7th star Deluxe from HMV today.

                        Haha, my bad - that was a typo

                        Should've read: "Anyone WANTING to use an established UK outlet.."

                        HMV have been established for a long time. They are large and corporate (must be the largest music retailer in the UK high street), so you'll get pretty much what you find with any such organisation... although I've always found their online services pretty good.

                        I've probably ordered about 100 - 120 CDs from them in my time, never had a loss and I can't recall any single problem with damage, and if something's late they keep you informed etc.

                          • Both The Eternal Idol & Seventh Star shipped yesterday from Amazon UK. Both shipped together for under $32 total.

                            I'd actually had them on pre-order since they first showed up, but had also ordered something else and decided to just wait and let it all ship together.

                            Well... I decided that I couldn't wait any longer, and changed it to ship those NOW. Thankfully both were still being reserved for the order!

                            What's the deal with these two being so scarce at most major online outlets?

                            • Listened to the Eternal Idol bonus disc yesterday. Heard the Ray Gillen versions before on bootleg, but listening to it again reminded that 1) Ray was an absolutely fantastic singer with incredible range and 2) I still prefer Tony Martin's version of the songs.
                              There's lots of small but noticeable differences in vocal melodies, phrasing etc. actually, and even though these songs were originally written with Ray's voice in mind (and of course partly by him) I think Tony's huskier voice gave the album a darker feel.
                              Of course this could be partly because that's the version I grew up with...

                              Hearing the original single version of 'Black Moon' and 'Some Kind of Woman' for the first time was interesting. These two have to be among the worst songs ever recorded by the Sabs. 'Black Moon's is clearly inferior to the HC album version (where I actually like it), and 'SKoW' is just a throwaway really...

                              But as historical documents it's nice to see them officially released.

                              • "Some Kind of Woman" is truly an odd moment in the Sabbath canon. Someone in the studio definitely had been listening to a lot of Van Halen's "1984." It's like "Hot for the Succubus" or something. Cool lick, though.
