    Eternal Idol has 4 of some of the most astounding Sabbath tracks, the atmospheric The Shining, the aggressive Ancient Warrior, the roaring Glory Ride, the dark "very Sabbath" masterpiece Eternal Idol...be sure to get this album! It's a forgotten gem and definitely one of the coolest albums Sabbath ever made.

    Seventh Star...it's a very cool album, the video song No Stranger To Love is a nice touch from Iommi, the epic Sphinx (The Guardian) & Seventh Star will take you to the land of magic & mystery...Heart Like A Wheel...In Memory...my God what great songs! Please get this album, alright? You'll find it much more exciting than "just for the heck of it" and it will grow on you irresistibly, I'll promise!

    No no no buddy...Ofcourse I already have them. I have the Castle remaster of Seventh Star and the original Warner print of Eternal Idol.

    What I meant was I'll get the deluxe edition of ET as well! I don't really like Seventh Star all that much, although Heart Like A Wheel is a good one! And Seventh Star is nice one too...but I do have to say, I hate No Stranger To Love...bad try to make an 80s sounding pop metal song...did not work.

    Eternal Idol on the otherhand I really like, that's why I'm more than willing to get the Deluxe edition as well!

    Why? I think they are valid. I do not feel in anyway you were ripping on anyone. Doing a re-release of this magnitude takes a lot of work, and unfoutunately, people are human and mistakes happen. Fortunatley for us, we have you to give us the full scoop.

    Ray Gillen!

    Great review. Anxiously awaiting these releases, although I'm guessing they won't arrive on my doorstep from Amazon UK until sometime in the middle of November.

    Honestly, I'm approaching these more from the standpoint of a Ray Gillen fan. My introduction to his voice came on the first Badlands release, and I was absolutely blown away. His place in Sabbath's history wasn't something I knew about until much later -- and I was never really a fan of Glenn Hughes or Tony Martin, so I have never owned either of these albums on disc. (I do, however, have a vinyl copy of Seventh Star I picked up used a few months ago for the tidy sum of fifty cents. And, after finding a used CD of Cross Purposes a year ago, it's now one of my favorite Sabbath albums.)

    Anyway, I can't wait to burn a "Best of Ray Gillen" Sabbath disc ("The Gillen Months"?) when I get my hands on these!

    Bring on "Born Again"!

    Just read your review for the Ray Gillen version of Eternal Idol, A little disappointed that it's not an all out "finished" version that I was hoping for, but I am glad Tony is releasing it all. Awesome review Joe! Looking forward to getting my ears on these. Cheers!!

    I decided to move the remarks about the "errors" out of the reviews, but I didn't want to delete the text totally, so I'm posting it here.

    There are a couple of small errors on the Eternal Idol package I wanted to talk about briefly.


    1. Incorrect Era Picture: When you first open the package, you get two pictures of Tony Martin. The one on the right is a video lift from the music video for "The Shining" (as are most of the pictures in this package are). However, the one on the left struck me as odd. Mostly because of the guy playing bass in the lower left hand corner. It looked a lot like Neil Murray, who did not play bass for anything until 1989, so I sent Neil a copy of the pic, and he said it looked like a shot from the Headless Cross tour. I then queried the record people about it, and the response was "Oops, slipped through the cracks".
    2. Incorrect Lyrics for "The Shining": Going all the way back to 1987 when it was first released on CD, the liner notes contained lyrics. However, for "The Shining", they are missing half the lyrics. They start with the line "Bells will Take their Toll", which doesn't actually occur until 3:11 of the song (of a 6:00 minute song). The 1996 Castle version has this same problem, and the 2010 Universal version does, too. I raised it to them when I got a PDF showing the booklet a month ago. I was told they didn't know it was incorrect, and it would possibly be looked into if there's a reprint, but I doubt that will get corrected. So half the Shining lyrics are still missing 23 years later.

    I would also like to point out that these two errors are VERY minor, and only a hardcore nitwit such as myself would probably notice, much less CARE. I only point it out because the last time I didn't point out any errors in a package (Black Box had two errors of a similar vein), I got called out for not doing a thorough review. So there you are.

    I'm glad I've pre-ordered both CDs. If I get half of that you mentioned, Joe, then it must be my best Sabbath purchase ever.

    But yeah, moving on.

    Scarlet Pimpernel was recorded after Ray left the band, so there is no point on including it on he's version of Eternal Idol.

    It's not the same album since one has Scarlet Pimpernel and the other don't.

    LOL

    Ok, sorry, I posted my text above before reading your comment.

    Getting pissed with such funny and chilling comments is somehow crazy, but I see your point.

    I woudn't count the vocal recordings on Iced Earth's Days of Purgatory album as being the same songs as from the originals.
