Black Sabbath has been so influential in the development of heavy metal rock music as to be a defining force in the style. The group took the blues-rock sound of late '60s acts like Cream, Blue Cheer, and Vanilla Fudge to its logical conclusion, slowing the tempo, accentuating the bass, and emphasizing screaming guitar solos and howled vocals full of lyrics expressing mental anguish and ...

3.0 out of 5 stars Corrected Tracklist 16 Nov 1999
Format:Audio CD
Well, first off the recording shows that the original recordings were done back in the late 60's or early 70's. The music is still good, and the main reason it gets only 3 stars is the fact that I was personally disappointed - my main reason to buy the album was WARPIGS, and it's not on the CD. The CD is good enough to keep anyway. The correct Tracklist is: 1. Paranoid; 2. Behind The Wall Of Sleep; 3. Sleeping Village; 4. Warning; 5. After Forever; 6. Supernaut; 7. St. Vitus Dance; 8. Snowblind; 9. Killing Yourself To Live; 10 Sabra Cadabra; 11. The Writ

3.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Compilation Badly Mastered 25 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
A quick but very important note to begin with. This is one of two completely different Black Sabbath compilations ("The Sabbath Collection" and "The Collection") for which Amazon is currently gathering together reviews as if they are the same album. These compilations have very different tracklists and were originally released almost a decade apart. So be careful you're buying the right one because you could be reading the wrong review.

This review is for the earliest of those compilations, "The Sabbath Collection". Released in 1985 on Castle Communications (CCSCD 109), this is the one with black cover artwork featuring the title text in red above a silver "SS" logo.

Right. Now that's out of the way, let's get down to business...

"The Sabbath Collection" is an excellent compilation ruined by thoughtless mastering. Allow me to explain.

The opening track of the CD is Paranoid, which on this collection is quite bassy and slightly muffled. It's obviously not taken from first generation tapes, but it's fine for what it is. However, the compiler made a huge error of judgement in choosing to follow Paranoid with three tracks from the bands' debut album, Behind The Wall Of Sleep, Sleeping Village and Warning. In comparison to Paranoid these three have such a vastly superior clarity it's like a veil has been lifted from the speakers....and with a MAJOR leap in volume. If you have this CD cranked loud from the start you'll probably leap out of your skin when the second track begins....

But that ain't the end of the sonic rollercoaster ride provided by this disc. The tracks following the three from the debut album have a volume level closer to that of Paranoid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sabbath Bloody Compilation 6 April 2001
Format:Audio CD
...this is a pretty interesting, non-chronological compilation from the original line-up of Black Sabbath (Ozzy Osbourne - vocals; Geezer Butler - bass; Tony Iommi - guitar; Bill Ward - drums), culled from their eight studio albums ("Black Sabbath," 1970; "Paranoid," 1970; "Master of Reality," 1971; "Vol. 4," 1972; "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath," 1973; "Sabotage," 1975; "Technical Ecstasy," 1976; "Never Say Die," 1978). It's a pretty good compilation, although its choice of comparatively obscure material (1978's "Junior's Eyes," "Back Street Kids" from "Technical Ecstasy") at the expense of more famous songs such as "Black Sabbath" and "War Pigs" may drive away a few more casual buyers....

5.0 out of 5 stars You only need two? 24 July 2013
Format:Audio CD
Why do you only need two? It is very simple, this and 'We Sold Our Soul For Rock & Roll'. Job done! Unless you are an ardent fan, which I'm not really, all you need is the latter and this and you have pretty much everything that Black Sabbath did that was vital, both then and now. Obviously you will end up with a couple of duplicates but I suppose that was inevitable? Yeh, you can go out and buy all the albums but why not save a bit of spare change and follow my advice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this CD! 6 April 2000
By S. Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is not the best selection of Sabbath songs, but there are some excellent tracks on here. This CD got me into Black Sabbath and Ozzy (the only singer on the CD), and guitar playing. I recommend this CD to everyone as these 4 musicians made metal what it is today.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Early Sabbath, All Right. 9 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Yeah, anyone can tell it's early Sabbath. In my opinion, Black Sabbath made mistakes on their albums only once in a blue moon, and we know how often that is. The tracks are exactly the same as they are the albums they were sold on, with absolutely no filler. Why did I give it four stars? I've never been a huge fan of Ozzy, even though he enjoys deity-like status in the music world. Of course, these songs are very good Sabbath, and if you want the best of the early bruisers, buying this one is a lot more gentle on your money than buying all of the albums. There are only two drawbacks to this collection: Ozzy is singing and, after a while, you begin to weary of the music.
