Harmonica on Black Rain...

Replies

How did you join in 1969?!

Ozzy

OK, checked my record again and it doesn't say Ozzy is on harmonica. I apologize for giving the wrong information.
So I'm left with the wikipedia information and some record reviews which are probably not a good source.
Like the guy from India I think I've read it in some magazine as well but I don't owe the issue of Guitar World he mentioned and I can't find anymore where I got it from.
Sorry again.

Forgot to log in before the last post.

I thiink its Zakk, doesn't say on the credits though so its anyone's guess. I don't think Ozzy picks up the harp anymore. He really only did it on The Wizard.

Yeah, but I have a bootleg concert of Sabbath in Prague in like 2005 and he plays it on The Wizard so I'm thinking it might be Ozz...

nah, but The Wizard is the ONLY song he ever did harmonica with, and it sound in more of the southern acompaning guitar style Zakk has.

i think it is a didgeridoo, because above the lyrics for the song Black Rain, it says... "contains an excerpt from "Forwardinoutback Didgeridoo Sample CD" as performed by Ralph "Stick" Hermann."

so i think its that ^^

There is a didgeridoo but they don't produce the same sound as a harmonica. The didgeridoo is the really bass like sound.

These are from Wikipedia but they are the same as on my album I bought over here with full cover artwork.

You checked your album? Cause anyone numnut could simply assume that its Ozzy and post that on Wiki.

Wiki has the potential of being the greatest source ever, but however as Ozzyjohn has said, it has many flaws that need worked out, so in other words you cant believe everything you read, as we all should agree....

Later peeps!

It's Ozzy. He said so in Guitar World, the issue with Jack White on the cover.
