Icon47 Seventh Star Re-release

Black Sabbath News reports that Tony Iommi has finally given his blessing for the unreleased tracks to finally see the light of day after 23 years in the vaults. (The story goes that Ray Gillen was recruited to record the vocals for Eternal Idol after replacing Glenn Hughes on tour. Gillen left shortly after the recording sessions started to form Badlands, and Tony Martin was subsequently brought in to rerecord all of the vocals on the album).

Seventh Star, meanwhile, will be expanded to include a second disc containing a live concert recorded on 2 June 1986 featuring Gillen on vocals.

Both albums are due for reissue on 25 October.

Seventh Star Tracklist:

Disc: 1
1. In For The Kill
2. No Stranger To Love
3. Turn To Stone
4. Sphinx (The Guardian)
5. Seventh Star

8. Angry Heart
9. In Memory
10. No Stranger To Love
11. No Stranger To Love - Black Sabbath, Jeff Glixman

Disc: 2
1. Mob Rules
2. Danger Zone
3. War Pigs
4. Seventh Star
5. Die Young
6. Black Sabbath
7. N.I.B
8. Neon Knights

It's great for the Sabbath and Gillen fans. But I have a live concert on CD of the Seventh Star tour with Glenn and that's for me the real deal (because Seventh Star is a Sabbath with Glenn album).

In October there also will be a Black Sabbath release of Eternal Idol with Ray Gillen on vocals.

Hi Stormbringer 74: Ray Gillen was the original singer on the Eternal Idol album. Just after the recording of the album, he left and was replaced by Tony Martin, who sang the new vocals on the album (as we know it from the official edtion).

Thumbs up Highly recommended

Got these two in today - pick 'em up if you can - talk about night and day - sound is so improved on these re-releases. Glenn is brought forward in full 'turbo' mode

'The Eternal Idol' is also worthy of your time, so good to hear Ray Gillen given the full treatment after all these years. Also, Tony Martin hasn't sounded so good for quite a while to these ears!!

Kudos to Tony Iommi for refreshing these, so two thumbsup from here

Seventh Star -Sab's Reissues

I admit to not yet getting this bells'n'whistles edition.
I believe the video/single mix of 'No Stranger'gets makes its cd debut for which I am greatful.
Full marks to Tony Iommi for unlocking his vault to feature a Ray Gillen live set from the Seventh Star Tour which unfortunately Glenn was unable to complete.
The Ray Gillen verson of Eternal Idol is also included in the series.
Hoping Tony & Glenn will get around to doing a tour together as they have amased some great stand-alone songs most of which deserve a proper
live airing.
I hear Mr Iommi & Ian Gillan are remixing 'Born Again' which I eagerly await with interest. The missunderstood wilderness years of Black Sabbath will
be judged in a kinder light hopefully.

Sabbath put out some great stuff with Ian Gillan, Glenn Hughes and Tony Martin. Pity everyone's so hung up on Ozzy and Dio, because while the band's fortunes took a beating for sure over those leaner years, they still put out a stack of albums worth hearing.

Indeed, Born Again, Seventh Star and Eternal Idol are excellent works, at times as great as anything from the Ozzy or Dio eras. Too bad that these never get the credit they deserve.

seventh star re re re release

Any audio hifi nuts out there give me your take Sonically on the new remaster please?
I played the latest edition on a Car cd player & found the treble frequency way too high.I tried Dolby noise reduction etc but the Cymbals dominated the mix even relegating Iommi's guitar to Garden Strimmer status.Whereas my old Castle Communication CD sounded fine.
I admittedly need to try it thru atypical home HIFI system to give you folks a definitive.
