Every Record I Own – B is for Black Sabbath – Paranoid

Black Sabbath ‎– Paranoid

paranoid Charity shop bargain with a tiny scratch that makes no difference to play. Bought in 2013. It’s got the original of War Pigs on it but I always expect to hear the slight differences on the Faith No More version.

Iinside stalked this record for ages on Ebay until eventually my friend Alex found this one for me, it’s not Vertigo swirl but it’s one of the early issues and its in great condition. I do love Vertigo swirls though.
I’ve never opened the gatefold before so I’ve just noticed it’s got a nice little upside down cross on one side of it, tasteful! It’s a faultless album, love it to bits.

sabgreat I didn’t appreciate Black Sabbath the first time round, I was too busy learning how to be a punk and by the time I noticed them they had lost the first flush of greatness and were just another metal band.

Looking at the earliest recordings of Ozzy you can see a real showman, someone who commanded awe with power and flexibility in his vocals. Now he’s just another drink and drugs casualty, nice guy probably but not really all there.

There is nothing much I can say about this, it is what it is, and I like it. I’ve got the first issue which is satisfying, although it’s not worth much.

The inside of the gatefold looks like a larger version of my front room, with books in the same place and 4 transparent people in the middle. I don’t have a 4 poster bed in my front room though.
