My sister had this album.
I listened to it loads when round her house from a young age.
It rocked then and still rocks today.

Thanks for the reminder! Classic album. I have it in my "Top 100 albums that changed music forever" collection. And to this day, one of the best Sabbath albums ever released in my opinion.

Great blast from the past!!! First track one of my favourites, I remember trying to get the Tony Iommi sounds for ages and then it clicked, it wasn’t about adding dirt it was about driving the amp hard! I had to get a attenuator to avoid upsetting the whole street - those were the days when I had a Fender twin 😂😂😂
Still here, still learning - no longer letting Fibromyalgia get in the way, it sucks but doesn’t have to mean your life stops!

Not surprised you struggled. Iommi never used any Fender amps. Mostly Laneys, Marshalls and Vox. All far beefier than a twangy twin.

And I am ever so happy to say that when my 21 year old son finally came out of the musical closet, he'd developed a taste for hard rock, including a little Sabbath and his favourite Sabbath song is The Wizard :)

The ol'lady(her words) and I are listening to the Wizard right now for Valentines day.
Gota love a woman who love Black Sabbath.
I think I throw on Eat a Peach when Sabbath is finished, she also an Allman Brothers
fan.
We were listening to the Rossington Collins band (the serviving members of
Lynyard Skynyrd and her favorite band) before we put on Sabbath.

Before that we were play guitar. She wants to get back into playing more.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone.
