Black Sabbath – Master of Reality

220px-Black_Sabbath_-_Master_of_Reality

Ozzie, Tommy, Geezer and Bill from Black Sabbath do it again with this album that was released in 1971. The same heavy, loud sound from Sabbath is very evident on this album as well as some very light sounds.

My top three picks for this album are: Sweet Leaf, Children of the Grave and Lord of this World.

Here is a list of the remaining songs: After Forever, Embryo, Orchid, Solitude and Into The Void (this one should be in the top three …. was very close).

Sabbath had a huge impact on my musical tastes at the time. I basically ditched Elvis, The Beatles and Country Music for the loud and heavy sound. I do respect the Beatles now, especially their later albums.

If anyone out there wants to let me know their picks it would be greatly appreciated.

Later.

Black Sabbath’s first album

Image

This is the ultimate classic record album. Released in 1970 this heavy duty rock album probably freaked out a lot of parents. When I was a teenager I had long haired hippy cousins that lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada ….. they exposed me to heavy rock and roll.

Growing up my mom and dad listened to the Beatles, Elvis, Johnny Cash and whole lot of country and western music. When I went to Winnipeg and heard the heavy duty British invasion like Black Sabbath, Led Zepplin, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd and others I nearly sh!t my pants. I did not realize there was such awesome music out there.

This album only has a few songs on it but they are long ones and include:

Black Sabbath

The Wizard

Wasp/Behind the Wall of Sleep/Basically/N.I.B.

Wicked World

A Bit of Finger/Sleeping Village/Warning

If you have this recording why don’t you listen yo it once more.
