3.5 greatRobbit | July 28th 17

The 1997 Ozzy compilation THE OZZMAN COMETH is mostly geared towards casual fans as the playlist focuses on his radio friendly fare and biggest hits. The majority of this collection would probably hold little interest for hardcore fans IF not for the inclusion of several previously unreleased Black Sabbath live recordings from 1970. Although the source of these tracks is not attributed in the liner notes, they are more than likely from an April 26, 1970 BBC session for John Peel's Sunday show. The standard release of OZZMAN COMETH includes "Black Sabbath", which has a different arrangement and lyrics than the studio version. Also features is a pre-PARANOID version of "War Pigs", which also has different lyrics and was originally titled "Walpurgis". Expanded versions of the album add performances of "Fairies Wear Boots" and "Behind The Wall Of Sleep" which are quite a bonus. These early tracks alone are really the only reason I'd bother with this collection - and they are definitely reason enough.

The two "Basement Tape" versions of the Black Sabbath songs are outstanding.
