      I'm a huge, huge fan of Sabbath. They and Ozzy were my bread and butter when I was first getting into metal some 18 years ago. I have this boot as well and my favorite from it is "Behind The Wall Of Sleep" - a lesser-known number from the first album but one I really like because it never ever got performed all that much. I think if I remember right War Pigs has some alternate lyrics to it, too. Quite possibly the best video boot of Sabbath from the 70s that exists. There was one of Sabbath in Toronto circa 1972 that I've heard exists and in fact I've seen snippets of - from an outdoor festival of some sort and the quality is really grainy. Wish I could remember more 'cuz I would love to see it.
