    It's kind of sad to think of the fun that the younger crowd has missed out on. CD's and MP3's cannot come close to the experience of vinyl, huge LP covers, and liner notes, and giveaways, like posters and stickers that we're tucked inside the cover. Buying music in the old days was an event.
    Hahaha, NID, I just responded to the Led Zep post of yours saying the exact same thing, BEFORE I READ THIS ONE BY YOU..! You can't beat coming from the same period, the same timeframe... when relating experiences...

      Ya, it's fun reminiscing with you bud. I was reflecting back on those days, and I had 5 very close friends / partners in crime. Three are already dead, one having died this March. Guess we are aging, but it sure doesn't feel like it......well, physically it does, but not mentally. That's why I still treasure my vinyl; it keeps my youth alive. Cheers WC.

        Here is a comparison of the posters from my Warner Brothers and Vertigo pressings. Warner Brothers cut the top and a little off the bottom of their poster I guess so they only had to fold it in half. The Vertigo poster had to be folded two times in order to fit in the sleeve.








        The only other photo I know of from this session is the one that was on the Paranoid picture disc single from 1982. Anybody know any others?

          I remember spending hours in the record store browsing album covers until I found one cool enough to take a chance on. I "discovered" Rush, the Scorpions, Judas Priest and several other bands back in the 70's without hearing anything about them beforehand at all. I'd take the album home, break the seal, throw it on the turntable while studying the album art, lyrics, band pics or whatever they had. That was probably my best time experiencing music ever.

            You bet bud. That is what the younger folks are missing out on, although many have discovered vinyl, and it is their discretionary dollar that is helping to make the vinyl medium so successful all over again. I can think of at least one occasion when I missed my bus stop, as a 13 year old kid, because I was sitting at the back of the bus studying some LP album art or liner notes, after a trip to the record store. The medium will live forever, to some degree, and has outstripped CD sales in Canada since 2009. Thanks for sharing that story Sleepy, I love stories and memories like that.

              It's stories and memories that make Sabbath so special.
