    So you've heard it in it's entirety?

    Besides "The Rebel" ,When I Came Down impressed me the most.
    I'd love to hear A Song For Jim, I want this song so bad.

    I love all the Earth demos, I have all the above listed except A Song For Jim, the snippet from Vol. 1 is great.

    "If there ever was a band whose voice is so significant and distinct, that band is Black Sabbath and the voice is Ozzy Osbourne"

      You have "Song for Jim"? Or did you mean "The Rebel"?
      The version of "When I Came Down" that most have is a looped version of a short clip that was released on the internet and later appeared on a bootleg. Someone looped it after that.
      I don't believe "Thomas James" is actually Sabbath, rather it's been attributed to them.
      "Early One Morning Blues", again, is a sample, this time a sample from the famous Dumfries bootleg that Ozzy and Sharon now own the copyright to. I believe it's the full song though.

        Yeah I'm also curious about this. Didn't think anyone had heard this one except maybe the live version on the Dumfries show which got snatched up anyway.

          This is the one song I've been wanting to hear since I first heard about it years ago, I love the Earth demos.

                  Maybe you should just go play The Cricket?
                  95% of everything i say is pure bullshit just for the fun of it. The other 95% is damn serious!

                    Will A Song For Jim with lyrics that Jim Simpson has locked away in his vault, ever be released?

                    Why would Simpson not release this? He’d make millions!

                      Even if he has the rights, any element of the band/their managers that might not want it out (for whatever reason) could likely easily veto it as soon as it became an idea, if they so chose.

                        The only allegedly complete copies in wider circulation that I have heard of When I Came Down were in fact the ~50 sec snippet repeated a few times. I think Thomas James was some kind of fake, right? And Early One Morning was one song from Dumfries 1969 live (now luckily we have much more songs from that gig). If you happen to have a true complete copy of Song for Jim or When I Came Down, you know which people would be interested to hear it! :-)

                          Thanks Sweet, didn’t know that.

                          Does anyone besides Jim have a copy or has anyone ever heard the version with lyrics?

                          I’ve tried searching the lyrics online but to no avail.

                          This Song was of most interest to me when I first heard the snippet on Black Sabbath The Story Vol. 1

                            One of the best moments on these boards was when we got the live version in your hands .... So deserving!

                            The studio version with and without lyrics is a treasure indeed , I'm sure! .... and both clock in , I believe , at just over 3 minutes ....

                            Jim has both , others do not.

                            Hope that helps OID ,,, Merry CHRISTmas and God Bless

                                I was very excited when I got it, both from you and Sweet. I was very happy that day to finally get to hear Dumfries and A Song For Jim and all the others on there.

                                I guess we’ll never hear the Studio version.

                                it helps thank you, a Very Merry Christmas to you and yours Doc.
