Black Sabbath has been getting Anniversary attention. Released in 1972, Vol. 4 will reach 50 in 2022. However, links have popped up with announcements for a Super Deluxe 4CD Box of Vol. 4 complete with new 2021 Steven Wilson remixes of outtakes from the classic album. The original album is remastered. (Best guess is that the original tapes of Vol. 4 were not available for Steven Wilson to remix, hence the remaster.)

Expect this set on February 12 of 2021. It is expected to also deliver as an all inclusive 5LP/4CD Box as well as the already mentioned 180g-weight 5LP, and 4CD Boxsets.

This 4CD Deluxe Edition Box adds a 1973 UK Live show for CD4, while CD3 and CD2 contain outtakes, alternate tracks, and an instrumental. The Steven Wilson mixes are on CD2 apart from the others that are found on CD3 as remastered. There will also be a 5LP Vinyl Box Set.
