Μέλος του February born club και ο Tony Iommi, συνιδρυτής, κιθαρίστας και βασικός συνθέτης των metal πρωτοπόρων Black Sabbath. Ακούμε δυο από τα μελωδικά κομμάτια του γκρουπ : ‘Changes’ από το Vol. 4 [1972] με τον Tony στο πιάνο και το mellotron, και ‘Spiral Architect’, το επιβλητικό, “ψυχεδελικό” φινάλε του Sabbath Bloody Sabbath [1973].
Στο βίντεο η περιστασιακή συμμετοχή του Iommi στους Jethro Tull [1968] – από το Rock’n’Roll Circus.

00:00 Changes 04:46 Spiral Architect

I feel unhappy
I feel so sad
I lost the best friend
That I ever had
She was my woman
I loved her so
But it’s too late now
I’ve let her go
I’m going through changes
I’m going through changes
We shared the years
We shared each day
In love together
We found a way
But soon the world
Had its evil way
My heart was blinded
Love went astray
I’m going through changes
I’m going through changes
It took so long
To realize
That I can still hear
Her last goodbyes
Now all my days
Are filled with tears
Wish I could go back
And change these years
I’m going through changes
I’m going through changes

Sorcerers of madness
Selling me their time
Child of God sitting in the sun
Keeping peace of mind
Fictional seduction
On a black snow sky
Sadness kills the superman
Even fathers cry
Of all the things I value most of all
I look inside myself
And see my world
And know that it is good
You know that I should
Superstitious centuries
Didn’t time go slow
Separating sanity
Watching children grow
Synchronated undertaker
Spiral skies
Silver ships on plasmic oceans
In disguise
Of all the things I value most in life
I see my memories
And feel their warmth
And know that they are good
You know that I should
Watching eyes of celluloid
Tell you how to live
Metaphoric motories
Say give, give, give
Laughter giving, love is showing
Me the way
Spiral building architect
I build, you pay
Of all the things I value most of all
I look upon my Earth
And feel the warmth
And know that it is good
You know that I should
You know that I should
You know that I should
You know that I should
You know that I should

    That’s an early Jethro Tull. I love Black Sabbath and bought their albums as soon as they went on sale at the local record stores. I saved money from odd jobs cleaning horse stalls and helping in some of the local restaurants to buy albums. After I got my first real job in 1975, it was much easier to indulge.

      Some people I knew back in the ’70s raised the eyebrow towards Sabbath in the name of “art” and “prog” rock [which I also happened to love]. But I’ve always been a fan. Frank Zappa has called Tony’s riff on “Supernaut” the best guitar riff ever written.
      Here’s the song covered by an Al Jourgensen [Ministry] side project.

    TheTull video is fab! (blurry, but the music is clear)
    I’m a recent appreciator of “Black Sabbath”.
    I got intrigued by Ozzy, from his reality show about 20 years ago. That’s when I listened to his music.

    I remember the second Black Sabbath song, but not the first. That’s a very energetic performance from Jethro Tull!

      I don’t know, doesn’t seem such a fine idea to me – judging from the dancer’s photo to begin with. I’ ll search it anyway, thank you very much for the link!
