Black Sabbath, Attention! (1975)
I was happy to find this compilation – I hadn’t ever heard of it actually. Because much as I really do love Black Sabbath, my focus has always been on the Paranoid album. It’s the only Sabbath I own on vinyl – well, until getting this comp. I love the first four albums, and will one day get the other three on wax. I’m even into the fifth and sixth albums, well the fifth certainly. But the very early stuff I sometimes forget about. So this – Attention! – is a pretty cool gap-filler for now. I’m not often compelled to listen to Sabbath, it feels like a soundtrack to teenage years for me, mostly. But every now and then I enjoy cranking up some Sabbath and basking in that always slightly-evil sound they conjured. Magnificent.
