The main claim to fame of the Lanterns, besides the hit 1969 single 'Shame Shame,' was the inclusion of future stars, Albert Hammond & Black Sabbath' lead vocalist Ozzy Osborne. Over the course of the band's career between 1968-1971 the Magic Lanterns released three albums in their native UK with only one being released in North America (on the Atlantic label). This collection contains highlights from all three albums including the hit 'Shame Shame' from the album of the same name & the only album to contain Ozzy as a band member. Includes eight non-LP tracks, 'Melt All Your Troubles Away', 'If You Don't Know Me By Now', 'Country Woman', 'I Don't Wanna Go To Sleep Again', 'Stand For Your Rights', 'Caught In The Act', & 'You Ring A Bell'. BR Records. 1995.

Magic Lanterns - 'Shame Shame' (BR Music)

"Of all the various sources that I've been informed that this was Ozzy's pre-Sabbath band,I've heard it DIRECT from a rep. at the label,BR Music that Ozzy was never with the Lanterns.The Magic Lanterns existed only from 1968-71 and put out three decent lp's that combined elements of soul and innocent-sounding pop.The Manchester,UK band managed to score a decently received hit,"Shame Shame",but the tune really isn't their best,by any means.With a total of twenty-four tracks,the ones that I dug the most were "Another Place Another Time","Frisco Annie",the soulful "Let The Sunshine In","Carolina Brown","Country Woman","Never Gonna Trust My Heart Again" and their should've-been-a-hit "Highway Dreams".The disc gets better as it progresses.Two similar classic lp's:Beach Boys-'Today' and the Buckinghams-'Kind Of A Drag'."
