Black Sabbath - California Jam: White Label Test Pressing
TEST PRESSINGS, often known as white label pressings, are copies produced from the masters by the pressing plants in tiny quantities of between ten and thirty copies. These test discs are then sent to the artists and record companies for approval before the main manufacturing is commenced.
These discs are very rare and much sought after by collectors as these are the working copies intended for the artists and label executives to check that the vinyl mastering process is true to the master tapes. The discs were not created for retail sale as part of a manufacturing run. They are genuine test pressings used at work in the industry by the artists and record labels.
BLACK SABBATH - CALIFORNIA JAM
WHITE LABEL TEST PRESSING
This is the legendary US KLOS-FM Stereo broadcast featuring Black Sabbath in concert from the Ontario Speedway, California on 6th April 1974.
Black Sabbath's concert appearance at the California Jam Festival has gone down in rock legend and is widely considered to be their best ever live concert recording.
This legendary gig, was simulcast and televised live by ABC-TV in prime time, features an extensive re-working of 'Sabbra Cadabra' from the band's then most recent album 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath', and a rare performance of the unreleased live only track 'Sometimes I'm Happy'.
The band was on top form from the opening notes of 'Tomorrow's Dream' right through to 'Paranoid', the ultimate show stopper.
A real classic concert and essential listening for every Black Sabbath fan.
