Notes

  • During production, the producer Michael Beinhorn was quoted as saying “I’ve got half of Black Sabbath here. If I can’t make a heavy album, then I don’t know who can!” (or something like that, I don’t remember the exact quote)
  • This album project started life with a completely different band.  That version of the album was thrown out, and what we have here was worked on.  The original band had Steve Vai on guitar, Bob Daisley/Mike Inez/James Lomenzo on bass, and Randy Castillo on drums.   Only the track “My Little Man” survived from that version of the album.
  • “My Little Man” was written about Ozzy’s son Jack.
  • “Aimee” was written about Ozzy’s daughter Aimee.

  1. I’m listening to this album right now and I gotta say it’s pretty neat, don’t know what’s the general opinion on it. It’s great that Ozzy and Geezer got together on this one. The guitar is awesome but I can’t help but feel really curious about the discarded version with Steve Vai, I wonder if they saved the demos or something, would be nice to listen to them. Thank you for your work on this website Joe, one can clearly see how much you love Sabbath and everything related. Greetings from Argentina!
