Interesting album, horrible production.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Born Again (Audio CD)
I first heard this album on a old cassette on its release and i was convinced the awful sound was due to the primitive bootlegging involved. 26 years later with a new CD on the player it sounds just as bad... Which is a crying shame as there are some great songs on this record like Zero the Hero and Born again, and some of the arrangments are pure Sabbath. The only element that isnt distorted by the production are Gillans vocals which howl ,scream, yelp and croon like a man quite enjoying his time with one of the iconic bands of the seventies. I saw them at Reading in 1983 playing "Smoke on the water" and Geezer Butler was loving it, as did i !
Maybe one day Tony will pull out the tapes and remix it.
