  • Song for Jim

    So I was doing some listening the other day and stumbled, once again upon A Song for Jim. After really listening to it a few times, it rang a bell. The guitar riff is the same as the verse melody in The Hollies song Bus Stop. After remembering reading somewhere that the early Earth demos were given to the band by Jim Simpson to be covers of early 60's songs, I began to wonder if A Song for Jim is nothing more than a jazzed-up version of Bus Stop....

    Were you listening to the clip of A Song for Jim from The Black Sabbath Story: Vol 1 or do you some how have a longer version of that song?

      Yeah, I was under the impression that this song was unreleased, except for a small portion that exists on The Black Sabbath Story: Vol 1. If you do have a copy, can you please explain how you got it? As far as I know the only one to exist is in the hands of their old manager Jim Simpson.

          I'd love to hear this song in it's entirety, I love the Earth demos.

                    If it's a cover, where is the original?

                          I didn't think A Song For Jim was a cover, the band wrote that song for Jim Simpson, their manager.

                            The rebel is a much more interesting song.

                              I have it -I was pleased as punch to finally hear the whole thing (after only knowing the bit in Story Vol 1)...though the snippet they played in that is the best part of the song.

                              The Rebel, Thomas Jam(es?), Early One Morning Blues and When I Came Down.

                              Besides "The Rebel" ,When I Came Down impressed me the most.
