    Has anyone heard a track by Dio titled "Jesus, Mary, and The Holy Ghost" from the album Strange Highways? What a quirky track. Am I the only one hearing a bit of 21st Century Schizoid Man?

    Listening to that live UFO compilation again. Space Child is a mundane slow tempo tune but when Schenker kicks in with his solo he just BURNS!

    I know it well. Strange Highways was the last Dio album I actually bought on cassette. I did it because the Wherehouse I stopped by on the way to class was out of the CD. That's the best song. That album is very uneven.

    You pretty much took the words out of my mouth. The album is very hit and miss, but yea that is a great track.

    Tony Iommi kept Sabbath alive in the 80s and 90s. Some of those Tony Martin albums aren't bad. Imagine if all those great Dio albums were Sabbath albums. We'd all be saying......Ozzy who?

    Black Sabbath doesn't have a bad album. Some arguably aren't as good as others, but they don't have a bad album. That includes Forbidden.

    I like the Martin albums. I like Seventh Star, too!

    Whatever happened to Jeff Carney? This is usually where he jumps in to agree with us...

    Just heard: All The Fools Sailed Away........Dio, from the album Dream Evil.

    Epic and kinda keyboardy and proggy. It's prog in the sense of Iron Maiden is prog.

    Agree, although I like some of the Martin albums better than others, they are all good.

    Dio's most under rated album IMO. I like the whole thing a lot.

    I know this might be a longshot, but I'm trying to identify a band/song from maybe 1990/1991. The song has lyrics that go "Ya know, I was laying in my bed the other day, and a big fat nurse came in, and sat on my face. Ya know, I almost died...AAH!" Then a fast,crazy guitar solo blasts in, blast beats and all that. I've been looking all over You Tube and the band sort of resembles groups like Evildead and Forced Entry. I know this is not much to go on, and I don't have an audio sample. Do the lyrics ring a bell for anybody?

    Do you have "Heaven And Hell"? By far the best Dio era Sabbath album to my ears. For Tony Martin era Sabbath my favorite is "Tyr".

    Heaven and Hell, 13 - the Tony Martin stuff just isn't up to the same level. The album Ian Gillan did had a couple classics but really, the pairing didn't work.
