  • This album was originally called “Remembering”.
  • This album was written and recorded during the time that Bill’s second solo album, When the Bough Breaks, was lying (completed) unreleased in 1996 while Bill was pursuing a record contract.  It lied dormant for awhile until 2002 due to Black Sabbath commitments.
  • Bill is supposed to have written everything on this album.
  • Bill is surprisingly NOT playing drums on the album, he’s singing only.
  • Bill released a “web mix” of the song “The Dark Half Hour” on his website some years ago.  It is still available.
  • Bill also released Straws as a charity single.  Details are available on Bill’s site.
  • The order of songs has not been decided on (especially given how many years have passed), but when these notes were originally given to me, this was to be the track listing.
  • It has been rumoured that Bill completed this album a few years ago, and has for some reason decided to shelve it.



  1. Come on Bill any time. Why keep this album shelved. sabbath fans want to hear this.

  2. I can’t believe that Bill is too busy with his other projects to release this. I mean, it IS finished. When the Bough Breaks was such an amazing album, I can’t help but think this would be well received as well. I always loved his singing and the world needs more Bill!

    If anyone kows Bill, please give him a poke in the ribs for me to get this out in the hands of the fans! :)
