Black Sabbath – Volume 4

Hand signed in bold silver paint pen by: Ozzy Osbourne – Tony Iommi – Geezer Butler – Bill Ward

Vol. 4 is the fourth studio album by English rock band Black Sabbath, released in September 1972. It was the first album by Black Sabbath not produced by Rodger Bain; guitarist Tony Iommi assumed production duties. Patrick Meehan, the band’s then-manager, was listed as co-producer, though his actual involvement in the album’s production was minimal at best.  In his autobiography I Am Ozzy, singer Ozzy Osbourne speaks at length about the drugged out atmosphere surrounding the sessions, stating that “In spite of all the arsing around, musically those few weeks in Bel Air were the strongest we’d ever been” but admitted “Eventually we started to wonder where the fuck all the coke was coming from…I’m telling you: that coke was the whitest, purest, strongest stuff you could ever imagine. One sniff, and you were king of the universe.” Osbourne also recounts the band’s ongoing anxiety over the possibility of being busted, which only worsened after they went to the cinema to see The French Connection, a film about two undercover New York cops busting an international heroin-smuggling ring. “By the time the credits rolled,” Osbourne recalled, “I was hyperventilating.” Iommi describes the scene in his memoir Iron Man: My Journey Through Heaven & Hell with Black Sabbath, “like Tony Montana in the movie Scarface: we’d put a big pile (of cocaine) on the table, carve it all up and then we’d all have a bit, well, quite a lot.” In 2013, Butler admitted to Mojo magazine that heroin, too, had entered the picture, although he claimed “We sniffed it, we never shot up…I didn’t realize how nuts things had gotten until I went home and the girl I was with didn’t recognize me.”
