I am pretty sure of that.At 1st I did think it was Ozzy that sang Solitude and
Planet Caravan probably up until I heard It's Allright which has Bill Ward on
vocals.
I think that's probably when I started to think that Ozzy did not sing Solitude
or Planet Caravan.A month after I got Technical Ecstacy I got Bill Ward WHen
The Bough Breaks CD and I must say I am totally convinced that Bill Wrd sang
Planet Caravan and Solitude even though he probably didn't write the lyrics to
both those songs.I did actually read on a certain web page that it was Bill who
sang on Solitude.I however haven't read any confirmation on who sang Planet
Caravan though but im pretty sure Bill sang that one as well.I do know that
Bill had played drums in a band with Tony called Mythology but before Bill did
that he was actually in a band where he was Singer and Drummer.I am totally
convinced indeed that it is Bill Ward singing Solitude and Planet Caravan.All
you have to do is listen to It's Allright plus listen to Bill Ward solo tracks
as well and then listen to Solitude and Planet Caravan and you will why I
believe Bill sang Solitude and Planet Caravan.

Yo have you actually sat down and really listened to It's Allright,Solitude,and
Planet Caravan closely and also listened to Bill Ward When The Bough Breaks?I
certainly have and im positive Bill sings Solitude and Planet Caravan.All you
have to do is listen carefully.Do you honestly think that Ozzy's voice is on
Solitude and Planet Caravan?I don't think so.

I've listened to Ozzy for quite some time and I'm positive that is him.
Ozzy is capable of singing softly and that would be him on there.

Solitude, I dunno... but Planet Caravan? You're extracting the
urine, surely? What next, Geezer sung Iron Man?

A close listen to "Solitude" casts serious doubts that Ozzy was the
singer. Ozzy's voice has characteristics that are unmistakable (and I've
been listening to Ozzy for over 25 years now) and none of those
characteristics are evident on "Solitude".
Those characteristics are evident, however, on "Planet Caravan" -
there's no doubt in my mind that Ozzy sang that song.

with me that he sang Planet Caravan.I actually read on a web page that Bill
does sing Solitude as well.

I just wish Bill Ward or Ozzy or Geezer or Tony Iommi would jump into
this newsgroup and answer this god-forsaken question for us once and for
all!

You know a lot of people don't realize this but Slim Whitman sang on
solitude. He sold more albums than Elvis and the Beatles you know.....

You'll notice that the singer of "Solitude" sings through his nose -
Ozzy sings from deep down in his throat. The singer of "Solitude" also
uses vibrato - something Ozzy doesn't do. "Solitude" is definitely not
Ozzy. It doesn't sound like Bill Ward to me, but I've only heard the
songs he did for Sabbath and none of his solo albums. From what I've
heard though, his voice is rougher and not as polished as the singer of
"Solitude" - so I don't think it's him.

"We sailed through endless sky-a-hies.
The stars, they shine like eye-a-hies."

The very first line has Ozzy's patented vocal inflections all over it
(and so does the rest of the song!). Ozzy has a very unique voice - you
know it as soon as you hear it. That's either Ozzy, or Bill Ward is
doing the best darn Ozzy impression I've ever heard!

Ozzy had a kind of "old black man" blooze croon (probably a vestige of
Earth) on most of the first Black Sabbath album that he all but got
rid of by Paranoid. Listen to some of the phrasing on The Wizard, for
instance, and compare that to some of the phrasing on Planet Caravan.
It's the same, just softer.
