Bill Ward / Ozzy Osbourne / Jack Bruce / Black Sabbath Related - Ward One: Along The Way Ward One: Along The Way
Pop New - LP 74816 Chameleon
Sealed 1990 Original. Three Tiny Saw Cuts On Mouth. Features Ozzy Osbourne, Jack Bruce, Jimmy Yeager And Others. "This Is An Extraordinary Album From The Drummer Of Black Sabbath. The Music Is Expertly Defined, Produced, And Engineered By Peter R. Kelsey, While "Lyrics And Musical Arrangement" By Bill Ward Is The Hint That This Is Ward's Baby All The Way. It Opens With Kiss/Black Sabbath/Alice Cooper Substitute Drummer Eric Singer On The Skins And Ward On Vocals. That Tune, "Shooting Gallery," Has A Riff That You Can't Place And An Overwhelming Presence; It Gives Way To Another Ward Vocal On "Short Stories," Which Blends Nicely Into "Bombers (Can Open Bomb Bays)," With Ozzy Osbourne On Lead Vocals. The Track Is Tremendous. "Pink Clouds An Island" Brings Ward Back To The Lead Vocals, And It Is As Strange As It Sounds. It Is A Bridge To Another Gem With Another Guest Star: The Distinctive Voice Of Cream's Jack Bruce Adds A Haunting Element To The Sparse Guitar Excursion That Is "Light Up The Candles (Let There Be Peace Tonight)." There Is Not A Bad Track On This Disc — It Is Heavy, It Is Well-Produced, And Creative Ideas Flow All Over The Place. Ward Proves That He, Not Ian Gillan, And Not A Thousand Other Faceless Vocalists, Had The Charm To Front Black Sabbath During The Days Without Ozzy. "Snakes And Ladders" Is Relentless, A Stomp With Guitar Textures That Would Make Tony Iommi Proud. Ozzy Returns For His Second And Final Track, "Jack's Land": "It's A Simple Enough Task, Boys, To Find A Living Miracle." This Is Classic Ozzy, Maybe A Bit More Refined. The Fact Is, Ward One: Along The Way Is Stronger Than Many Discs Put Out By All The People Involved With It. Chameleon Has To Be Commended, On One Hand, For Allowing It To See The Light Of Day, And Chastised For Letting Ward's Superb Solo Disc Get Lost In The Shuffle. Absolutely Excellent Stuff."
