    Even the "worst" Sabbath album is better than 90% of crap produced today.

    The second half of the song is ripe for a rap remix

    Before this album was recorded, Ozzy Osbourne quit the band and was briefly replaced by former Savoy Brown and Fleetwood Mac vocalist Dave Walker. Some songs were written with Walker, and the new group even performed an early version of “Junior’s Eyes” with different lyrics on the BBC programme, Look Hear. Osbourne eventually rejoined the band, refusing to sing any of the songs written with Walker. These particular songs were rewritten, including “Junior’s Eyes” (rewritten to be about the then-recent death of Ozzy’s father). All four band members sing on “A Hard Road”.

    If John Elstar played harmonica, and Bill Ward sang, where was Ozzy?? and who was on drums? it was recorded on different tracks, or Bill can plays drums and sings simultaneously, like Sir Lord Baltimore's drummer? Probably it was recorded in different tracks, but would be good to know that Bill can plays drums and sings at the same time.

    I love Bill's voice too ... i mean he proves in this song and in It's Alright that besides an awesome drummer he can sing really well. Great.

    The screaming in the middle of the song is irritating.
