Although I'm a fan of the old OZZY stuff...my vote has to go to "Heaven and Hell." RJD is the man!

I still listen to both. I just broke out Heaven and Hell because I'm going to see Dio/Sabbath in March at Radio City. I never got to see them with Dio in the 80s. I do though, have a special place in my heart for Ozzy as he was the third concert I ever attended in the summer of 1981 at Nassau Coliseum. Here is a picture of the late, great Randy Rhodes from that very show. What a loss to the music world.

Heaven and hell. By the way the drummer on blizzard of oz was Lee Kerslake, not Tommy Aldridge. Tommy was the touring drummer. And yes, he does freeking rock.

Was listening to Rainbow's Gates of Babylon tonight-man, Dio can SING. Too bad he gets discredited sometimes for his wizard, hobbitt ways.

While Heaven and Hell is a great album its significance is nowhere near that of
Blizzard of Oz. Randy Rhoads redefined virtuoso guitar playing while Iommi merley continued his massive riffage.
There is no comparison between the two.

Unfortunetly that is the only picture I have from the show. A friends brother took that shot before getting hassled by security. At least he got that one. My seats were nowhere close to those.

Both albums kick ass.But I would choose Blizzard over Heaven & Hell due to the genius of Randy Rhoades' axe work on Blizzard which was just so new & different and more raunchier and raw than Tony's playing on H&H.I also must say that I don't think Mob Rules gets as much praise that it deserves.Mob Rules has songs on it that are just as great and maybe even better in some cases than the stuff on Heaven & Hell.

Love em both and big respects to Randy Rhodes but I gotta give the nod to Mr. Iommi.

I have to agree. I picked up a copy of Mob on cd a couple of weeks ago. I owned it on 8-track back in the day so it had been 20 + years since I had heard the complete album. I still like Heaven & Hell just a little better but Mob Rules is a great follow up.

Although I love them both, I'll take Heaven and Hell. I still listen to that album all the time while I haven't listened to Blizzard of Ozz for quite a while. I also love the Mob Rules and Dehumanizer albums as well. I just love the Dio era of Black Sabbath. I also really like much of the Tony Martin era of Black Sabbath. I think the reason most people don't respect the post Dio Black Sabbath is because they haven't heard any of the Tony Martin era material. The TYR album has one of the best vocal performances I have heard.

singing- Heaven and Hell
riffs-Heaven and Hell
lead guitar-Blizzard of Ozz
drumming- Tommy F'n Aldridge (nuff said)

both great but to pick an album...hmmm
I'd go with Woman and Children First by Van Halen
man was that a kickin summer


Hey gotdrums but you might not be aware that the drummer on Blizzard and Diary of a MadMan was Lee Kerslake.. Tommy Aldridge wasn't hired till after Diary was recorded but started in Ozzy's band as part of the touring line up.

This much is true.... Ozzy Osbourne & Tony Iommi both owe their early 80s success to a couple of really short guys!!!! ( I can say this cos I'm 5'6" haha)

I have to say that Blizzard is just a hair above Heaven and Hell.

They both had plenty of airtime in my house....still have both on vinyl.

I was lucky enough to catch Randy twice before his untimely death...I was pretty depressed for a while on that one.

Caught these 2 shows just days before he left us....

February 20th - Reunion Arena, Dallas, TX - w/ UFO, Starfighters
February 24th - Memorial Coliseum, Lubbock, TX - w/ UFO
1982

My first ever Sabbath show was the Dehumanizer Dio-reunion tour in '92
and that was a **** ing powerful show and I saw Dio in 2004 and Ronnie
definitely still has "it" where Ozzy is so burnt out these days(I saw a very tired looking
Sabbath for Ozzfest 2005 and I saw there when Ozzy had to be substituted with Judas Priests' Rob Halford for the 2004 Camden Ozzfest show(a truly historic legendary experience IMHO))
so I'm looking forward to a true ass kicking experience whenever Heaven & Hell comes to the Philly-area.
