Black Sabbath – California Jam (Limited Edition Album on Clear Vinyl)

This is the legendary US KLOS-FM Stereo broadcast featuring Black Sabbath in concert from the Ontario Speedway, California on 6 April 1974.

Black Sabbath’s concert appearance at the California Jam 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. The set 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 music on this record was originally produced in the days when vinyl was king.

Vinyl records produce an analog sound that reverberates and creates that famous warm sound you can't find in any other medium. The music and vocals on vinyl records are much closer to the way artists sound live.

Clear vinyl is softer and molds easier during the pressing process. Vinyl is a naturally clear substance. Black vinyl records are created by adding a charcoal /graphite colorant which creates a harder surface and makes it easier to see tracks but can lead to static build up in the cartridge . As a result, the best clarity of sound quality is to be found in using clear vinyl.

NB. Audio recordings from live TV and radio transmissions will always embody the audio limitations of the original sources . Modern digital remastering techniques improve sound quality immeasurably . However, the original broadcast performances have often been recorded and mixed by TV or radio technicians rather than music specialists. Nonetheless clear vinyl will give the very best reproduction given the limitations of the original broadcast sources.
