Black Sabbath, Sabotage: [esm]

Recommended Posts

So I'm rippin' my CD's to my new computer using Windows Media Center. When I put in Black Sabbath's Sabotage, the title is displayed as: Sabotage [ESM]

I can't find what "[ESM]" means. I searched Acronym Attic and they had over 200 possible meanings, some made SOME kind of sense, but I'm not so sure. Is it a Windows thing, a Media Center thing, a music catalog thing, or my particular copy of Sabotage is somehow uncommon or unique? I used to buy imports, but I don't think this is one of them (my Sabbath Bloody Sabbath CD is an import and Media Center was unable to list one of the tracks correctly).

It appears to be a way of cataloging 'tunes' discographically; the "E" being "Essential":

"Essential" Profile: A sub-label of Castle Music (formerly a sub-label of Castle Communications) specialising in reissues & compilations. Label Code: LC 6448 / LC06448 Parent Label Castle Music

See a sample listing at: and see if this makes sense.


Embedded Security Modules (ESM)... Which might be a bad thing.
