    Gotta love Geezer's and Iommi's solo trading in SA. Iommi's tone on that with the wah is really good. Not sure he ever had that tone on any other albums thereafter. Lots of bite to it, but not as...

    I always thought of Vol 4 as the worst sounding (sonically and production-wise) BS album. To me the drums lack punch and the bass is way too buried in the mix. Also, the guitar tones are somewhat...

    I think there was an article from awhile back that said he used the ENGLs and his Signature Laneys on TDYK. On many of the leads on 13 he's probably using a fixed position wah pedal which would add...

    Thanks for the reminder about Halestorm playing that last H&H show. I didn't realize that was her and the band. What an amazing show that was. So cool seeing H&H in such a small venue and being...

    Well said. His parts really feed off of Tony. Funny how he doesn't seem to be fond of his work on that album when find it some of his better efforts. Die Young would be another great example of...

    No reason to be disappointed about there being a drum machine on TDYK. They only used a drum machine when they were working the demos. That being said, because the songs were in many cases not born...

    Someone should inform the author of that article that they've got the wrong guy. Geezer and Bob Daisely wrote most of those lyrics - ha,ha.

    I meant to say "unremastered" WB releases from the 80s. Obviously they've all been mastered, although some better than others. And after reading above it seems some like the WB releases better. ...

    Hard to argue those points when they're not even releasing each CD individually too. So if one needs to replace a single disc from the Black Box set from 10 years ago, they'd have to either buy the...

    I think this might be the only album he recorded using Mesa Boogie (Colessiums or MKiis maybe?) amps. Might be the reason his tone never sounded like that again. Unless they were used on Born Again...

    I saw that too (i.e. the Vox AC30 in the background). Wonder where that was used, or if it was just sitting around in the studio during the Paranoid sessions. I believe Tony said he used an AC30 on...

    Thanks for the info. Well that's too bad then. Possibly he could find some kind of record deal to do it Wonder if he's shopped it around and there simply isn't any interest. Would assume that...

    I thought all the recording was done on that latest Accountable Beasts session? At least that was said back in August. Wonder what the hold up is. Possibly these latest health issues? Bill might...

    Agree on that. I love Zeppelin, love Jimmy Page, but I just don't find Celebration Day that great of an album, let alone a Grammy Award winner. I know Page is typically sloppy live, but on this...

    That was great. Thanks! Interesting to hear that when the new TI Signature amp was used during the recording sessions for 13 that they used the clean channel with a Treble Booster, and for the eq...

    1. Johnny Blade... Love the sound and style of the drums on this entire album. Some of Bill's jazzier playing.

    Yes, Vol 2. If I recall correctly they cut in and out of this footage with an interview with Iommi. They talk about how the NSD album was different and Ozzy eventually leaving, and then they switch...

    I didn't realize that had been discussed before... thanks. That being said, to me the solo sounds like his tone on the rest of the studio stuff from the album and not his live tone during that era...

    Ok, I did some quick research and assuming wiki is correct.... Top Of Pops for NSD single was June 1978 which means material from NDS existed earlier in 1978 well before the album release. ...

    As an instrumental this might actually be a better listen than a few of the tracks off of 13. I love Tony Martin, but I think Ozzy's vocal style might have fit some of the Forbidden tracks better. ...

    I think you're right. He did use a Les Paul in the studio on Fused for overdubbing rhythm tracks, but not aware of him ever using one on stage or in a promo video. i think he used Strat on Fused...

    I have an old Black Sabbath guitar tab book and cassette somewhere authored by Wolf Marshall, and the Hard Road guitar solo is one of solos that Wolf really talks up. If I recall correctly, it's one...

    The Tony Martin years might not rank up there in popularity, but there is no denying that's one very talented lineup. Certainly not one weak link amongst the bunch, and Tony Martin seems to be...
