I met him once when he was with Sabbath during Mob Rules. He played bass on this. Some of my older friends remember seeing them at the Goblet in Auburn, NY. They said that their energy was incredible. Every song is a classic. That also includes everything they released. The first Rainbow(Ritchie blackmore's Rainbow) is Elf minus David Feinstein. Feinstein went on to create David Feinstein's Thunder and The Rods. anyways, I would recommend this to a stranger. It happens to be an unknown classic.
I grew up in the 1970s and I now find myself being repeatedly asked by my friends' teenaged sons and their friends for recommendations of 1970s bands they're not familiar with. They all know about Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and other major acts but they're totally unfamiliar with many of the lesser known 1970s bands.
To help them and others who are discovering/rediscovering 1970s music I'll start posting reviews of albums by some of these less well known 1970s bands whose music I think is worth the attention of a new generation of listeners.
This 1972 release by Elf is one such album that is worth a listen. The bass player and vocalist is billed as Ronald Padavona but it's actually Ronnie James Dio before he became well known. The vocals are unmistakable Dio.
This album was produced by Roger Glover and Ian Paice, at the time the bass player and drummer, respectively, of Deep Purple.
If you like Deep Purple and Ronnie James Dio's later work, you'll like this one.
