    Probably the album that made me like Heavy Metal now. Sound is incredible on mine and wow, what an experience for someone who’s not that much into metal and Heavy Rock. I REALLY recommend it !

          If you want the absolute best sounding Black Sabbath live album, here it is. But wait, isn't this Ozzy Osbourne and his solo band? Yes it is. Its the live album Black Sabbath should have released when Ozzy was still a member of the band. This is, first of all, one of the best sounding live recordings I've ever heard. Granted "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" and two other songs on this record were recorded in the studio with the sound of the audience added. But regardless, Ozzy's solo band is firing on all eight cylinders and delivers note perfect versions of the Sabbath classics . Ozzy himself sounds better on this then he ever did when he was a member of Black Sabbath. Which is a pretty remarkable feat considering how zonked he was on drugs and alcohol when they recorded it. Not bad when you consider that this album was just a contractual obligation. Its a shame though this has never gotten a repress.

          Is it essential Ozzy? I'm tempted to say yes, just for the album cover alone. I love the black, red, and yellow color scheme and its got that satanic/occult vibe that was prevalent in early 80s heavy metal. And of course, how can you not love that shot of Ozzy on the cover. But if I'm being objectively honest and given the relative rarity of this album on vinyl, I would say no, not essential, but highly recommended if you come across a copy in decent shape.

              Mine has a different matrix/runout, but the same catalog numbers... Should I create a new release for it?

                Ozzy doing Sabbath songs that he did with Sabbath. Decent double live album. Not an essential but if you are an Ozzy fan you should have this. 68/100
