4 stars I have a theory about why no one has reviewed this release. Is it because this one's so hard to track down? There are at least four different singles/EP's under the title "Paranoid" released in the early 1970's by Black Sabbath. And that doesn't even include the possibility that there are other versions that we're not aware of. Talk about confusing! This EP (too long to be a single in my book) is a collection of four songs from 3 early Black Sabbath records. This Paranoid EP was released by the record company that released the Volume Four album.

I think this is a terrific EP containing some of Sabbath's finest and best known songs. "Black Sabbath" and "Changes" are beyond reproach as far as I'm concerned. I know that EP's are not everyone's cup of tea. I have a hard time listening to an hour or more of any band, even the ones I love, so I listen to a lot of EP's. So, if a smaller dose of Black Sabbath is what you're looking for, I think this is a perfect choice.
