Oi, AtticRock! Tudo bem?

Cara, seu blog é sensacional! Muita coisa boa por aqui...Você conhece algum bootleg do Black Sabbath, com o Ian Gillan,obviamente, que tem a música THRASED???
Eu conheço esse material - tenho-o original - e é soberbo! Uma apresentação deles em Stockholm,também é antológica,pois apresenta a faixa BORN AGAIN. Pena que o Gillan estava um pouco rouco...
No mais, parabéns pelo seu trabalho e vida longa aos seus blogs. Um grande abraço,Miguel.

Olá Miguel tudo bem!
Obrigado pelos elogios e acerca desse boot com a música Trashed não conheço. Desta época nos Sabbath estou a descarregar uma gravação das remixes de "Born Again" mas desconheço a qualidade. Se for boa colocarei aqui.

Abraços, volte sempre

Thanks for this great post.I agree with Anonymous.I saw Sabbath October 21,1983 at the Montreal Forum..Nazareth was the opening act and I remember being disappointed that they played Digital Bitch but they didn't play Trashed..I still don't understand why.Nonetheless,Born Again was an under rated album and this concert brings back very hazy memories.

born again was WAY more than an under rated album, IMO. agreed, it would've been impossible to top what sabbath had done previously, but considering ozzy and ian are 2 totally different style singers, that cd was as close and good as it could've gotten.

awesome disc here.

thank you
