1. Why not "Master of Reality?"
It's a much better record.

4. I listen to the old Sabbath on a 2-disc collection of best of.
Most of "Master of Reality is there". Except for the 2 instrumentals and "Solitude".

2. Exactly how old is Ronnie James Dio anyway?
The guy's first record came out in 1957. He's easily older than any of the Stones.

Born in 1942. Been rockin' and recordin' since '58, according to IMDB.

Jagger - born '43
Ricahrds - '43
David Gilmour - '46
Townshend - '45

I hadn't realized DIO was that old!

James Brown - '33
Elvis - '35

3. Excellent.....Dio era Sabbath is unfairly maligned....
Mob Rules and Heaven and Hell stand up to at least 50% of the Ozzy era records, and far surpass anything that came after them. Even the live album with him doing some Ozzy songs is pretty boss.

5. "Mob Rules" is especially unfairly maligned.
I find it far superior to "Heaven and Hell."

Still, I prefer Rainbow to Dio-Sabbath.

6. Not into Mob Rules
That album to me is like "For Those About To Rock, We Salute You" from AC/DC. The first one with the new singer is excellent but it just went down from there.

11. "Back in Black" was Brian Johnson's first with AC/DC
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 09:35 AM by jandrok
Not "For Those...."

But you're right about the first with the new singer being the best, in most cases.

Notable exception: Bruce Dickenson-era Maiden kicked the shit out of the early stuff with the singer whose name I can't even remember.

14. Yes I know
the point Im making is that the second releases for both bands, to me, didn't live up to the first one and lost it for me.

7. I prefer "Heaven and Hell".
It is not as spotty as "Mob Rules". On "Mob", I like the first three tracks, the title track and "Country Girl".

10. If Tony Iommi Is Playing Guitar, It's OK By Me
He's an original. On the early stuff, the chord choices, the riffs, and the middle eastern motifs in his leads were all things nobody else was doing. He's greatly underrated.

13. Dio-era Sabbath rocks and is unjustly overlooked
Personally, I like "Mob Rules" and "Heaven and Hell" even better than most Sabbath with Ozzy.
