    Honestly i think a lot of folks shit on these songs simply because Geezer was not a part of writing them and Ozzy did the lyrics.
    Perfectly said Axeman!!! I couldn't agree more. The songs are credited to just Tony and Ozzy and no one gave them a fair chance.

    I thought "Psycho Man" was musically really good.

    Lyrically it was another matter. I assume Ozzy penned those lyrics. Anybody know for sure?

    "Selling My Soul" was decent, but if Bill couldn't do what they wanted they should have dropped it. Sabbath albums shouldn't have drum machine; period.

    I love those studio tracks, especially Selling My Soul.

    I was going to mention that myself. I've never seen the original Sabbath lineup live, only Ozzy solo (3 times) and BS twice in the 80's (with Ian Gillan and Ray Gillen). I do have the Reunion album though.

    I love that album and I kick myself in the ass for not going to see the reunion live. Why not? Because they were playing huge outdoor festivals and I didn't want to deal with that. So to this day, I never saw the original four together. I did go to the 13 tour though.

    On December 5, 1977 Ozzy wasn't actually in Sabbath anymore, they had replaced him with Dave Walker! It was only later that he asked to come back and they accepted. But I understand your point, I just thought it was funny that Ozzy wasn't in the group 20 years earlier on that date.

    Twenty years ago (Dec 5, 1997)

    The Reunion live album was recorded at the Birmingham NEC. Twenty years before that, Ozzy and Bill were still in Sabbath the first time around. Is this a great coma we're in, or what?! I wrote this on Facebook during my lunch earlier:

    Tonight (maybe less than an hour, GMT) marks the 20th anniversary of the second of two reunion shows by Black Sabbath's original lineup in Birmingham, England. I remember reading reviews posted to Joe's mailing list the first night, 12-4, and they were all positive. The same people then went to the second show, and exploded with "HOLY CRAP THAT WAS AWESOME!!"

    Both nights were taped, but the show that started twenty years ago, right around this time, was so good that it was used exclusively (AFAIK) for a live album. I had a bootleg of the show, and when the official release came out I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was basically an official bootleg; I could detect almost nothing in the way of studio cheating. The only change I could hear, in fact, was taking out Ozzy's vocal track when he talked over Tony Iommi's "Orchid" instrumental. Definitely a good change to make.
