Scott "Wino" Weinrich kept fans waiting decades for these long-overdue, well-worth-the-wait blues-soaked tracks. Capturing the revered Black Sabbath guitar sound better than anyone (other than Tony Iommi, of course), Wino offers a fuzzy, upbeat tempo on tracks like "Release Me" and "Smilin' Road" to balance the down-and-doom of "Eyes of the Flesh" and the psychedelia of the Hendrix-ish "Wild Blue Yonder." It's the mix of his soulful vocals and his guitar prowess that makes this man's contributions to stoner rock and doom metal notable.
