Offered for sale is a copy of the rare Japan-only compilation LP Attention! by Black Sabbath, complete with original obi.
This album was released with three different covers (once in 1973 and twice in 1975.) This is the first 1975 release and the second version overall.
About this copy: This copy of Attention! is an original 1975 Japanese pressing on the Fontana label.
The cover is M- with very slight foxing on the back.
The nearly-always-missing obi is M-. For some reason, this LP is almost never found with the obi.
This LP was issued without an insert.
The disc is M- with a couple of spindle marks on the labels, but no marks on the vinyl. Clean disc!
A nice copy of a very rare Black Sabbath LP and the nicest copy we’ve ever had for sale.
Background: In Japan, most buyers aren’t interested in purchasing entire catalogs of albums by English-language artists, so compilation albums are quite common there, and very frequently, the Japanese market sees compilation albums by U.S. and European artists that aren’t available anywhere else.
Attention!, by Black Sabbath, is one such album. Originally released in 1973, the album contains tracks from the band’s first two albums (Black Sabbath and Paranoid) and includes the track “Evil Woman, Don’t Play Your Games With Me” that was not included on the U.S. version of the Black Sabbath LP.
Attention! was released three times between 1973 and 1975 with three different covers. This is the second version.
For some reason, it is nearly impossible to find any of the three versions of this album with the obi intact. All versions were limited editions, and all were in print for a short time only.
- Paranoid (Paranoid)
- Sleeping Village (Black Sabbath)
- Warning (Black Sabbath)
- Evil Woman, Don’t You Play Your Games With Me (Black Sabbath)
- Iron Man (Paranoid)
- The Wizard (Black Sabbath)
- Behind the Wall of Sleep (Black Sabbath)
- N.I.B. (Black Sabbath)
