Anyone else have really negative first impressions of Heaven & Hell?

    I first got it in 1981 and it was an instant addiction that remains to this day.

    Prior to that, I had only heard Paranoid at a girlfriend's house, played by her uncle. At that time I was too into KISS and Hendrix to notice.

    I heard some carping at the time that it said it sounded like Rainbow, but as at that time I had not heard any Rainbow albums I couldn't confirm or deny that.

    I just thought "this is so cool and this singer is fantastic!"

    I got Blizzard Of Ozz not long after. I remember some who had the bullshit attitude that if you liked one you couldn't like the other but I didn't care...I liked them both, though I liked Heaven And Hell​ better.

      I never had that attitude, I always liked both, never got into the Dio/Ozzy wars, my preference is Ozzy and Ozzy/Sabbath, but always loved Ronnie's material, both in and out of Sabbath.

        Maybe because I was never (at that point) a fan of the original band and had never owned any of their albums I was more open to RJD, plus he became my favourite singer of all time.

        That was the first Sabbath album I ever owned. Paranoid was second. Mob Rules was third (we're talking about mid-late 1981). Owning H&H motivated me to check out the original lineup.

        As a guitarist my "allegiance" ended up being to Tony Iommi rather than to any singer, though Randy Rhoads did blow me away when I heard him.

          That's great Heaven And Hell motivated you to check out the original line-up, what did you think back then when you checked out the originals?

          Randy blew me away too when I first heard Blizzard, he still does to this day, he's in my top 3, of all time, Randy was phenomenal.

            Well, the atmosphere was perfect.

            I was 15 years old, there was a thunderstorm going on and I put Paranoid on the turntable.

            Scared the shit out of me (in a good way!) I thought, "Man this is heavy!"

            Of course my stepfather ended up calling upstairs "WILL YOU TURN THAT SHIT DOWN?"

            Rhoads was one-of-a-kind. Edward Van Halen has carped that Rhoads ripped him off but I really don't think he did.

              Thanks for sharing, The debut album had the same effect on me.

              If Rhoads copied Eddie, then he did a better job than Eddie himself.
