Black Sabbath Greatest Hits 1970-1978 (2006)
Originally Released March 14, 2006\n\nAMG EXPERT REVIEW: Somewhere in every good music fan's basement is a worn-out copy of either the vinyl, eight-track, or cassette of Black Sabbath's We Sold Our Soul for Rock 'n' Roll. The 1976 compilation captured the darkest and beefiest moments from the Ozzy years and served as a right of passage for millions of aspiring musicians, burnouts, pastor's kids, and closet miscreants. Rhino's 16-track Greatest Hits 1970-1978 anthology only trumps the single-disc We Sold Our Soul CD by two songs, but it offers superior sound and features at least a few cuts from 1976's Technical Ecstasy and 1978's Never Say Die!, the band's last two pre-millennium Ozzy records. All of the faves are here ("Paranoid," "War Pigs," "Iron Man"), as well as fan classics like "Hole in the Sky" and "Supernaut," but there is enough material missing to call it a sampler rather than a "best of." Fans who are unwilling to shell out the extra money for Sanctuary's superior two-disc Sabbath collection from 2005 will find this sparse yet solid overview to be a useful "CliffsNotes" rendering of the birth of heavy metal. -- James Christopher Monger\n\nAMAZON.COM Product Description\nBlack Sabbath-the Black Sabbath, the original lineup of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward, four childhood friends from the north of England-grew out of the U.K's late-60s blues/hard rock scene, which also included Led Zeppelin, Cream, Blue Cheer, and other greats. Sabbath's sweeping and masterful metamorphosis away from that tradition spawned heavy metal music, inventing the template for everything that would follow. With crushing rhythms, torpedo riffs, haunting songs, and Ozzy's other-worldly vocals, the band conjured a dark, menacing, and resonant sound that reverberates still. \n\nAMAZON.COM CUSTOMER REVIEW\nPPPPPPHHHHHHHHH! thats about it., March 22, 2006\nReviewer: wally gator "the only" (USA)\nWhen I was little BLACK SABBATH was a BIG deal. I knew of these dark masters while I was still in diapers, and in those days, we were mainly exposed to the original greatest hits album SOLD OUR SOUL FOR ROCK AND ROLL. The best part about that album was that it didn't try to expose us to songs like NEVER SAY DIE!, which I was never even aware of until I was about sixteen, and when I WAS finally made aware of, I sat in my room and cried and ate chocolates all night... "Whhhhhhy? uh huh huh huh, you guys were SO BAD ASS... uh huh uh huh..." \nSOLD OUR SOUL captured what was the meat of the band BLACK SABBATH in their original line up.. sure there was a lot left off of that hits package, but at least they didn't chop IRON MAN in half... (actually I could do without that song, but like I said.. I've been down for years, newbies should hear the WHOLE F'in song, its like the door to SABBATHNESS..) \nI saw this disc in the store the other day, and I had to pick it up and look and see. Whatever man.. this is like the seventeen billionth version of an original SABBATH greatest hits disc ever released. It has HOLE IN THE SKY but no SYMPTOM OF THE UNIVERSE... it has the same hits from the S/T, PARANOID, MASTERS OF REALITY, VOLUME 4 that the others had, and it contains a few throw away tracks from TECHNICAL ECSTASY and NEVER SAY DIE, oh yeah and IRON MAN is edited to make room for \nROCK AND ROLL DOCTOR. You COULD buy this album, but then again you could do a lot of things that I wouldn't advise... it's your life, man. \n\nSmells like Sharon Osbourne if you ask me.\n\nAMAZON.COM CUSTOMER REVIEW\nDON'T BUY THIS; IRONMAN IS CHOPPED IN HALF, March 16, 2006\nReviewer: F. Burock\nI don't know what the moronic executive producer of this, Sharon Osbourne, was thinking when she decided to cut Ironman in half, it isn't even faded properly, but what a mistake. The target audience of this i would presume is either completist Sabbath collectors who buy everything(like myself) or novice fans who will make this their first and only Black Sabbath purchase. Perhaps the greedy witch Sharon wants them to buy the previously released double greatest hits c
This rock cd contains 16 tracks and runs 79min 39sec.
