The Sabbath Stones
April 29, 1996
This is a compilation of the Tony Martin years of Black Sabbath, with a couple of extra tracks thrown in to make it a greatest hits that covers from 1983-1995. Cozy appears on several tracks here, but there’s nothing new just to this disc. It was done solely to fulfill Tony Iommi’s contract with IRS, and was also never released domestically in the US.
I really like all the songs on here! Although I think they should have picked different material to represent TYR. Nevertheless, a great lineup of musicians! Just on drums we’ve got Bill Ward, Vinny Appice, Bobby Rondinelli AND Cozy Powell! Wow!
