Pick up The Mob Rules on vinyl yesterday. Can’t say I loved it at the time, I was an Ozzy guy. But looking back, I was wrong, so wrong. The first two Dio era albums are balls out fantastic. I can’t understand how Turn Up The Night hasn’t been included in any live release.

Heh, I was the exact opposite.  I loved Sabbath's sound, but thought Ozzy was a mediocre singer at best.  When he left and they got RJD...I was ecstatic!

Agree, never understood the love for Ozzy, the guy is not a very good singer in general and is just a clown. RJD was a world of improvement over Ozzy. Some of Ozzy's solo stuff is quite good even with his singing, but RJD took Sabbath to a whole new level.

People tend to forget just how derided Sabbath were before grunge led to them being reappraised in the early 90s.
Prior to that, Sabbath fans were definitely a breed apart - there was something about Sabbath that connected with particular people in ways that other bands didn't.
I was one of them and the endless shit I used to hear from normal rock fans who didn't get it - they can't sing, they can't play, they're too heavy, they're too slow, there's no melodies, blah, etc. As if any of that ever mattered in the slightest. It's not a talent contest. The only thing that matters: 'do you like it?'

This is a really fun rocker, but I can see why it was left off Heaven and Hell;  sounds a bit too Rainbow-ish for a Sabbath album.  Would love to hear more Sabbath outtakes.

I like it it sounds like something more out of Elf than Rainbow or Sabbath.

Cool video thanks for posting,

How come Led Zeppelin doesn’t have anything like this, weren’t they bigger and more popular and influential?
