View Full Version : If you could make a greatest hits Tony Martin cd

I think this would be an interesting thread topic seeing that Tony Martin never got a greatest hits cd with Black Sabbath. Also, with Ozzy having one with "We Sold Our Souls for Rock N' Roll", I think it would be fair for Tony Martin to have one. After all, by having a greatest hits cd with Black Sabbath, Tony Martin's popularity could increase dramatically.

Heres what I would include on the cd. I only have the "Headless Cross", "Cross Purposes" and "Forbidden" cds so my list consists of songs from those cds. The name of the cd would be "Bright New Beginning".

1. I Witness - from the Cross Purposes cd
2. Cross of Thorns - from the Cross Purposes cd
3. Headless Cross - from the Headless Cross cd
4. When Death Calls - from the Headless Cross cd
5. Cardinal Sin - from the Cross Purposes cd
6. Kill in the Spirit World - from the Headless Cross cd
7. Rusty Angels - from the Forbidden cd
8. Immaculate Deception - from the Cross Purposes cd
9. The Hand That Rocks the Cradle - from the Cross Purposes cd
10. Call of the Wild - from the Headless Cross cd
11. Cant Get Close Enough - from the Forbidden cd
12. Dying for Love - from the Cross Purposes cd
13. I Wont Cry for You - from the Forbidden cd
14. Kiss of Death - from the Forbidden cd

Not a bad list at all. I would also include some tracks from the Eternal Idol, even though the album was pretty much Ray Gillen's. Hopefully, if there is a Black Box II, they'll be a renewed interest in the Martin era.

I have other favorites from this era, but here is my list that would best statisfy the masses (w/title from Garry Shapre-Young's Book):

Black Sabbath - Always Let A Black Cat Cross Your Path: The Best of the Tony Martin Years

1. The Shining
2. Ancient Warrior
3. Eternal Idol
4. Headless Cross
5. When Death Calls
6. Nightwing
7. Anno Mundi
8. The Sabbath Stones
9. Heaven In Black
10. I Witness
11. Cross of Thorns
12. Virtual Death
13. Get A Grip
14. Rusty Angels
15. Kiss of Death

All but 3 tracks on "The Sabbath Stones" had TM. I've also seen an unofficial "Best of Black Sabbath" disc made of 10 tracks from the TM albums. But true, there's no official TM-only release.

Hmmm this is challenging...

I've always felt that in order to make a "best-of" compilation that truly encompasses a band (or an era of the band) you should take between 3 and 4 tracks from each and every album you're covering. So here goes:

1. The Shining
2. Nightmare
3. Lost Forever
4. Eternal Idol
5. Gates Of Hell/Headless Cross
6. When Death Calls
7. Nightwing
8. Anno Mundi
9. Jerusalem
10. Battle Of Tyr/Odin's Court/Valhalla
11. Heaven In Black
12. Cross Of Thorns
13. Back To Eden
14. Evil Eye
15. Psychophobia (Live from Cross Purposes Live)
16. Shaking Off The Chains
17. Rusty Angels
18. Kiss Of Death

Great lists, everybody.

2. I Witness
3. Born To Lose
4. When Death Calls
