Despite what the old guard said about Sabbath, in 2009 they released deluxe editions of their first three LPs. The expanded versions of these records suggest a much different story, now everyone can hear their outtakes and rehearsals for the recording sessions. More often than not, the early drafts of songs were typically more vicious than the final versions. As the songs progressed from being works-in-progress to completed songs, some of them were stripped of their overtones or lyrics.
