Well Mr.Trapper this was a bit harder to  narrow down to 10 tunes,they have so many great ones. Nazareth was a big part of the soundtrack to my youth also, like you I first heard Hair of the dog blaring out of my state of the art AM radio and was hooked, but thanks to well intentioned but misguided parents the first album I owned by them was Rampant and IMO a true classic that still gets regular spins here at the Supernaut compound. with that said I'm sorry buddy....... though I can't come up with any counterpoints to KFB, a guitar riff that should be a standard for any young guitar player to learn, my all time fave Naz burner is........ 

Silver Dollar Forger

   yes this is the tale of Dirty Dan all hepped up on speed balls running from the law with a trunk full of "funny money" in his muscle car and just a  brilliant riff from Manny.

Glad When your Gone

   another blues soaked tale from Rampant ......oooohh ya bitch.... get out of here you knocked my guitar out of tune

Kentucky Fried Blues

   ya.. what he said

New York Broken Toy

   an overlooked rocker from the Naz boys

Born Under the Wrong Sign

   a true '70s rocker that oozes  a bit of blues with just a touch of funk

Down Home Girl

   a forgotten classic from the Playin the Game album........ "underneath all that mess  your the same ole Bessie Lou"

Changin' times

   one of the great forgotten riffs of the '70s


   like a skill saw cutting through butter,  this song makes me want to get drunk and fight

Claim to Fame

   the Rhythm section of this song reminds me of what it would sound like when Dan was pounding on your face cause you messed with his woman

Somebody to Roll

  another forgotten classic from the playin the game album, Those little slide guitar licks... Manny got his guitar screaming........ 

I must give honorable mention to  "God Save the South" from the 1998 album called Boogaloo, if a Naz fan I recommend it, nothing spectacular but solid album through and through with this track the stand out.

There i was completely wasted feeling like a clown -
All outside it's so frustrating as the leaves come drifting down -
Feels as though nobody cares if the pile gets a mile high -
So I might as well begin to put some action in my life
You know what it's called...........

First off good to see your alive and still roaming around this big blue marble, when your Facebook page suddenly went dead I thought oh shit the Feds finally caught up with him or maybe Weedy somehow put a coherent thought together and exacted some type of revenge. Me I've been lost in the Emerald Triangle sampling the most insane supersonic sativa this planet has to offer. I decided to leave after one guy showed up, he was all quiet most of the time, the only thing he'd say was " I love when you call me big poppa"  and things got really weird when he held up a jumbo pack of rubber bands and said " let see what kind of lands these could take us too"  I didn't want to stick around to find out, plus I heard Sabbath was coming out with a new album and wanted to get a copy of it.

This tune reminds me of Time Machine with Ozzy singing. If this is what they choose for the exclusive Best Buy track I'm wondering what the other 4 songs they have no plans for sound like.... then again maybe not.... it might break the wonderful Sabbath like daze I've been in for the first time since Mob Rules was released.

my buddy pointed this out to me the other day while listening to the new sab, as you know the standard version of the album closes with Dear Father and at the end we get the familiar bell toll and lightning storm.  he said to me " what a great concept, the first album opens with the bell toll and what could be the last closes with the bell toll putting bookends on a 44 yr career of Sabbath".. wait for it...... wait for it.... ah there's the sound of the collective's mind being blown all at once

So I know everyone wants to say it... but you're just to afraid of what your friends might say, yes it's true the new Sabbath album is really freakin good. I think it's safe to say that everyone here has breathed in and digested every single note of Sabbath, well at the very least the first 6 albums, and knows every cymbal crash,pick scrape and bass note set to tape. When listening to this album it's hard not to make the comparisons to past riffs... "oh that riff sounds like, or the vocal line sounds like... etc,etc," I have a dozen or listens on this album now and it just gets better and better after every listen. It even passed the getting all 420'd up, kickin back in the lazy boy with the headphones on full blast test. I'm in no way saying that this album belongs along side the Holy 6, but it does a great job of trying to get there. I'll have to give it up for Rick Rubin who manged to get the Boys to create a real live sounding old school Sabbath sounding record.  It is so refreshing to hear Iommi shred again, at times he just goes off and the playing comes across as off the cuff, and not so calculated as he's been in the past.

There other thing about this album is Brad Wilk did an outstanding job of drumming on this and it's awesome to hear Iommi/Butler play with a drummer who has swing and groove. Sure it would've been nice to have Ward behind the kit, but when announced it was Wilk, I thought weird choice, but the guy has always been solid from his RATM and Audioslave output, and secondly it was NOT Vinnie "the ham fisted plain vanilla plodder" Appice, who in my opinion sucked a lot of life out of the great Heaven & Hell album Devil you know. { as an aside I recently saw an Iommi interview were he mentions they tried to bring Ward in on that project and ran into the same problems  as present}

Over all stand out tracks are Zeigeist - what a great mello atmospheric tune and a very pleasant surprise, Damaged Souls - this track is just a fuckin monster and Iommi lights up the fret board , this tune I can imagine them just jammin live in the studio and all Rubin had to do was hit the record button, Pariah -  this tune has a such a great arrangement , it grooves, great solo section from Iommi, and Live forever - that takes that 50Lb sledge hammer and wacks you upside the head. The other thing is Geezer's lyrics haven't lost a step, too bad Dio couldn't have swallowed some pride at times and used some Geezer lyrics instead of some of his cheesy themed ramblings,  in closing I guess I could've made this a lot shorter by just sayin'......  me rikey!!!!
