one of my favorite things about Sabbath was the Geezer was not getting the shaft, and for some good tunes with bass are his solo albums, the first two anyway, cant remember his name right now but the singer sure learned how to suck between the Black Science and Ohmwork

Clark Brown thats it just checked, he was great on BS one of my favorite albums ever. and one of the biggest reason i wanted to learn to play a bass after giving up on the drums many years ago

Yeah, Geezer Butler was one of my inspirations to pick up a bass in the first place (the others being Geddy Lee and Les Claypool.. I later idolized players like DiGiorgio and Burton, but I digress..). His presence in the Sabbath sound was huge, and I loved how you could *almost* always hear him playing.
