Black Sabbath – Rock ‘N’ Roll Doctor (1976)

Black-Sabbath-Technical-Ecstasy

After the frustrating legal battles that accompanied the recording of their 1975 album Sabotage, Black Sabbath chose Miami’s Criteria Studios for the making of Technical Ecstasy, which continued the band’s separation from its signature doom and darkness that had been a trademark of the sound of their earlier albums. Ozzy Osbourne writes that the cost of recording in Florida “was astronomical” and that he’d “lost the plot with the booze and the drugs” during the recording of Technical Ecstasy, eventually checking himself into the Stafford County Asylum when he returned to England. “That was the beginning of the end, that one,” bassist Geezer Butler confessed to Guitar World in 2001. “We were managing ourselves because we couldn’t trust anybody. Everybody was trying to rip us off, including the lawyers we’d hired to get us out of our legal mess. It was really just getting to us around then, and we didn’t know what we were doing. And obviously, the music was suffering; you could just feel the whole thing falling apart.”
