  2. That was an unexpectedly awesome version of Paranoid. Going back to the “Can you help me…occupy my brain” verse, originally just a middle 8 or whatever you call it, and turning it into a chorus of sorts was really brilliant. Jo Burt had such a short window of time in the Sabbath history book, but it is clear he respects the music and the legacy. Again, really enjoyed Jo’s unique take on Paranoid.

    Great version of paranoid there,a laid back country twang version with some very nice slide guitar – not usually my thing but respect deserved. Jo Burt,another small link in the massive tangled chain of Black Sabbaths hazy troubled past! All of the history is important,it all builds the legend up to what it is today.

    Hey Jo,
    I went to Fan Court with you and David in the late 60’s. Simon Bond – you probably don’t remember though?
