Editorial Reviews

The latest addition to the acclaimed & award winning Classic Albums series tells the story behind the making of one of Heavy Metal's greatest achievements: "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath. Released in the autumn of 1970, the band's second album is regarded by many as the finest Heavy Metal album of all time, is hugely influential and has come to define the Heavy Metal genre. The four original members of Black Sabbath: Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward talk us through the making of the album, together with the original engineer via interviews, demonstrations, archive videos and use of the original multi-track tapes.

Bonus Features:
Over 40 minutes of additional interviews, archive footage and new demonstrations not included in the broadcast version.

The extras are really worth seeing also.
P. Cappiello
Of course, the DVD also features the other great members of this band as well and I especially liked listening to Geezer play his bass riffs.

The Classic Album series is one of the best in the business.

As a HUGE fan of Sabbath AND the Classic Album series - I would be lying if I said this wasn't somewhat of a disappointment. Overall, it seemed more like a "VH-1 Behind the Music" segment, than an in-depth look at a "Classic Album".

The first 10 - 20 minutes ran through everything true Sabbath fans already know, such as Tony's finger tips and Geezer's vision. There was entirely too much focus on the political climate of the time, with tons of footage from Vietnam and civil unrest of the late 60's - early 70's. While the era certainly had a bearing on the band's inspiration, the amount of time devoted to it simply robbed viewers of a comprehensive look into the production of an incredible album.
Segments where the producer isolated the recordings to showcase instruments and parts seemed rushed and very short, almost as filler to break up each main segment. For instance, Rodger Bain commented on a particular track and said something to the effect of (I'm paraphrasing here) "This is my all time favorite vocal track from Ozzy. He sang this to perfection, so menacing and soulful". I just knew he would play the isolated vocal track. I mean - it seemed too obvious - but, nope - bam - right back to the VH-1 style presentation. When I found myself yelling at the TV - "Play the track!! let's hear it!!!!" I knew this was NOT what I was hoping for.

REDEMPTION (of sorts)
For those longing for more in-depth coverage of Geezer, Tony and Bill's incredible talents - rest assured - you will get your fix in the bonus segments. It's a shame the producers choose not to include this footage in the main feature. There's plenty of track isolation, demonstrations and live performances to satisfy. In fact, if it weren't for the bonus material - I would have given this review 1 star.

The Classic Album series is one of the best in the business. From artists to producers to sound engineers to famous journalists, Classic Albums dissects the music that matters most. This time around they take on one of Metal's all time great releases, Black Sabbath's Paranoid.

The documentary features new and candid interviews with all four of Sabbath's original members including vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi, bass player Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward. Behind the board, showing off the original master tapes is none other than the future famous producer Tom Allom (Def Leppard, Judas Priest). It is fascinating to hear all of the parts separately and then put together as the classic Paranoid was being built.

Everyone involved tells the story of what it was like to be a member of Black Sabbath touring America and become both famous and infamous at the same time. This is a legendary album by a legendary band. Hearing the sounds and the stories behind "Iron Man," "War Pigs," Paranoid," "Fairies Wear Boots" and "Electric Funeral" will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Black Sabbath & Family Footage Archives : June 29, 2010 Eagle Rock Entertainment Presents Classic Albums: Black Sabbath's Paranoid. The documentary features new and candid interviews with all four of Sabbath's original members vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi, bass player Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward. To me the best part of this release is getting to see Iommi play Planet Caravan on the acoustic guitar. They really give this song some much needed attention. Its great to see Iommi at home playing the main riffs from the album. Geezer also plays some riffs on bass at his home. This starts with Paranoid live at the Caljam in great quality. It goes on to include footage from the Paris 70 concert and German TVs Beat Club. They also show parts of the Never Say Die dvd. The persons closes to Sabbath that are interviewed is former manager Jim Simpson & Studio worker Thom Allen. He plays isolated parts of the songs as well as some of the demos. (Demos can be heard on the deluxe editions 2009) Then he pulls out the orginial 4 track master studio tapes with his hand writing on the front. Also Henry Rollings gives some good fan perspective on the album. Stories include Iommi and his finger accident, name change of War Pigs, how Ironman, Paranoid, Faires Wear Boots came to be. Joe Smith from Warner Bros Records comes in to talk about the record company decision on various things about the album.

Black Sabbath, like all other bands of their genre were not well received by critics when they first emerged. One sociologist in this film said that critics during the late 1960's and early 1970's wanted musical artists who gave them hope. Obviously, Black Sabbath was not one of those bands. On their album, "Paranoid", they basically talk about certain problems through their songs, and leaves you, the listener, to draw your own conclusions. For example, 'War Pigs' as almost all of us know, discusses the effects of war on different countries. "Electric Funeral" talks about the dangers of nuclear weapons. "Hands of Doom" explains in detail, how individual soldiers have been affected by war as well as drug abuse. "Fairies Wear Boots" tells about a gang of skinheads physically and mentally abusing the band members as well as other hippies. "Iron Man" according to the band members is a science fiction tale of a man who time travels into the future and then trvels back to the present to discuss futuristic disasters which are likely to take place if we humans are not careful enough. Finally, there's "Paranoid", which talks about an individual experiencing mental problems, such as paranoia, schizophrenia, and depression.

These songs as well as others are discussed thoroughly in this outstanding documentary. We hear the band members: Tony Iommi, Terence "Geezer" Butler, Bill Ward, and John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne as well as engineer Tom Allom, talk about how they play their instuments for each specific song as well as how they mix each of them in the control room. You also hear commentaries from artists like Henry Rollins, who discusses songs like "Paranoid" and "Iron Man" (in which he talks about ascending and descending bridges in the middle of it.

You're right, you can't really take away any of those Sabbath members of the 1st Incarnation (The Ozzy Years) and still have the same quality mix, don't think so. I'm going to make every effort to get into these old Sabbath albums. I think DIO would've wanted it that way. R.I.P. DIO. Time to... Read More
