  • Ozzy era demos

    Anyone else think that its weird that there are no demos from when Sabbath debut came out till after NSD with Ozzy. The only Ozzy demos known to exist are the Earth demos, the H&H two or three tracks, and the 2001 sessions. At Sabbathlive Rob says that any denos he has come across with Ozzy are fake (ex. Sabotage demos).

    However demos from every other singer do exist, including obscure ones such as Fenholt and Donato.

    Re: Ozzy era demos

    I think there has to be demo tapes of some kind. How can they just record songs like Wheels Of Confusion, Sabbra Cadabra, Megalomania, etc, on the fly?? They had to have recorded some kind of tape to allow them to arrange the songs and such...

        is that a synonym for really great?

        anyway, i should think they had to record something. maybe they protected it well or destroyed them after they weren't needed...possible...

                        ARGH !!!! Is it possible some people on these boards still believe the so-called "Basement Tapes" were actually demos ?!? For the hundredth time, these four tracks (you forgot "Black Sabbath") were recorded live at the BBC in London, UK, on the 04/26/70 for John Peel's "Sunday Show". The audience and applause have been edited out to make them sound as demos for Ozzy's "Ozzman Cometh" compilation.

                        If those are the same that have been circulated for a few years as "Sabbath's Bloody Demos", then don't even bother listening. These are really the album tracks on which some EQ and reverb have been added. Nothing but lame fakes. Awful :-(

                        As of today, except for a short sample of "The Rebel" (which was recorded when the band was still called Earth), and one minute from "When I came Down" which was written by Norman Haynes for Black Sabbath to become their first single but was shelved because the band didn't like it), there is no other true demo from the 70s being circulating currently.

                            that sucks, but why is it so hard for people to absorb that those were live performances? why did ozzy rerelease them? isnt that sabbath's job? that I don't get, but what became of the Behind the Wall of Sleep and Fairies Wear Boots ones? I'd like to hear BtWoS...I heard it's got that extra verse and different ending, which i have on guitar pro but i want to hear it.... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
