Dehumanizer has to be the most darkest Sabbath record to date....I love the Dio stuff but this I think was the best of the bunch especially After All, I & Computer God.

My second favorite to Heaven and Hell. I think Dehumanizer was better than Mob Rules. Has a couple throw away songs but the good ones are real good. Definitely a darker vibe.

Good Find enjoyed those

Black Sabbath   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lVdMbUx1_k

Osbourne and Butler wrote the lyrics for a song called "Black Sabbath", which was inspired by the work of horror and adventure-story writer Dennis Wheatley, along with a vision that Butler had of a black silhouetted figure standing at the foot of his bed.  Making use of the musical tritone, also known as "the Devil's Interval",  the song's ominous sound and dark lyrics pushed the band in a darker direction, a stark contrast to the popular music of the late 1960s, which was dominated by flower power, folk music, and hippie culture. Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford has called the track "probably the most evil song ever written".  Inspired by the new sound, the band changed their name to Black Sabbath in August 1969, and made the decision to focus on writing similar material, in an attempt to create the musical equivalent of horror films.

Cool early live version of Iron Man with alternate lyrics from the Paranoid four disc Rhino reissue. I don't know the cost of this thing but it's worth getting just for the two live discs from two different shows in 1970. I have a 1970 bootleg and they kicked ass in 70. Listen to that opening riff on this version, Iommi was/is a beast.

Black Sabbath on Forbidden tour.

 Ok getting on my soapbox about Sabbath. 

I know folks out there that consider Sabbath to be Ozzy Tony Gezzer and Bill.  Maybe they should have changed the name when they brought Dio in.  But they didnt.  Tony used the Sabbath name for all the other vocalists and musicians that followed in all the other incarnations.  And that's ok with me since his guitar tone and riffs is what is the most recognizable thing about Sabbath to me.

I think there was a disservice done when they did the last tour for those of us that like and prefer what followed Ozzy's initial tenure with the band.  Had Ozzy had a different manager maybe they could have done a two night finale at Birmingham.  One show could have been the other versions nite.  Bring in Vinny and BevBevan on drums, Ian, Glenn and Tony Martin on vocals.  Get Jorn Lande to sing Dio's songs.  Not sure how Gillan could have done on any of the Born Again material but hey lol.  The die hard fans of the other versions would have loved it.  And had Ozzy had a different manager,  Bill maybe could have and would have at least played the last show.

Tony Martin spent some decent time with the band, more than Hughes, Gillan and probably was there damn near as long as Dio. That would have been cool to have a couple hometown shows featuring all the different members and lineups in a farewell setting and have released a dvd of that whole thing. Agree Sharon's paw prints would have been all over that concept to make sure it never happened, probably why Iommi never seriously entertained anything like that.

I saw them in 94, I can't remember which tour it was, it was either Cross Purposes or Eternal Idol. It was decent, it was a good time. And Motorhead opened so I got to see them for the first time also. I don't remember much specifics about the show so it wasn't all that memorable. I remember being all that impressed bit I can't say that I was disappointed either. I think he did have Geezer on bass in that lineup if I remember correctly. I definitely think it would have been cool to get a lot of those other members together for some of Black Sabbath festival or reunion celebration but yeah Ozzy, and more so Sharon would have never let that happen.

I'll be curious to give Forbidden another listen after Iommi remixes it as he is apparently currently working on now.

I still say Born Again is a masterpiece album and some of Gillan's finest work. Here is a good article about it with Gillan. Great to see the album getting mad respect (mostly) in the comments section.

I love Born Again!  I was always more into Sabbath without Ozzy though.
