I know how you feel, I had the same experience with Money by Pink Floyd.Comment by Hawkmarty:
This is an edit of the LP track, most noticeable is the removal of the "You b*stards". I remember when the LP was released, all the checkout tills in Woolworths in Cardiff had stickers saying "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" stuck on their sides. Quite shocking to read the middle word as a very young catholic (*) doing his xmas shopping with his parents and younger siblings.
(*) quickly lapsed.

I am not really a heavy-metal fan , but I love this manic frenzied recording by Ozzy Osbourne and the boys. A disappointing no. 61 in the U.S. , but it went much higher ( no. 4 ) in the U.K. : we must have been more receptive to this kind of musical madness !
