I'm back

Hi everyone.

Sorry about any delays. I think I answered most of my important PMs on YouTube. If not, then shoot me another one.

I don't want to get in too many details, but I had a family member pass away last week and I was either out of town, or just made myself unavailable. Not that I got any complaints from anyone about my absence, but I thought I would just make that clear in case there were some that weren't brought to my attention.

I posted one new video earlier on YouTube. Another soundcheck track by Sabbath. Should be a treat for you all.

I also got curious and downloaded the disc of demos/alternate tracks from the deluxe version of Paranoid that was just released. I noticed that on "War Pigs" the vocal can still be heard at certain parts. Get a good set of headphones and put it on if you have the track. Listen to the first two or three minutes, and you can hear a low vocal. Especially when Ozzy would yell "Oh Lord Yeah!". It's there. I didn't hear it on any of the other tracks (yet), but I'm starting to think that these Instrumental versions might not necessarily be legit. Maybe some of these were concocted prior to release by removing vocals and claiming them to be something else after the fact. I don't know. If anyone has the disc, I'd like your take on this.

Here's a link for you all, requested by Diopriest:

Black Sabbath - Paris 1970 (mp3 @ 192 kbps)

If anyone has a lossless version of the above, drop me a message. I love this recording, and would love an upgrade to it.

Stay tuned this week, I should have some more posts.

New YouTube posts and delays

Hi Everyone,

Sorry for the extended absence. To make a long story short, I have been preoccupied with some family issues for the last week and half and will be remain occupied with them for at least another week, if not longer. I mentioned in my previous post that I had planned for some new Sabbath material (including a 35 minute interview, as well as some more soundcheck material) to be posted soon. I will get to these as soon as I can.

I also promised some people that have messaged me that I would send them some stuff. Bear with me and I'll get to it as soon as possible.
