Biography

Black Sabbath has been so influential in the development of heavy metal rock music as to be a defining force in the style. The group took the blues-rock sound of late '60s acts like Cream, Blue Cheer, and Vanilla Fudge to its logical conclusion, slowing the tempo, accentuating the bass, and emphasizing screaming guitar solos and howled vocals full of lyrics expressing mental anguish and ...

This is the only official release of a Black Sabbath Tour with Tony Martin on Vocals. (Would have been 2nd if Live In Moscow 89' was released) and this shows the fans that Black Sabbath are still on top of their game. Tony Martin shows us that he can still sing the Sabbath Classic's which also include"The Wizard" which Sabbath haven't played for 20 odd Years. Sadly Tony Martin can't hit some of the high notes he's known for and sometimes his voice blows out but come on he was ill during the tour, but he still rocks it!! Iommi shreds the riffs out as usual and Geezer plays superbly and you feel like he never left, Bobby Rondinelli does well and fit well in Sabbath over all this is a Sabbath Live Album (DVD included) that is a must have! DON'T LISTEN TO THE NARROW MINDED FOOLS! That say Sabbath is Ozzy or Dio only fronted. Tony Martin proves that he deserves to be in Black Sabbath and he is in my eyes as much the voice of Black Sabbath as Ozzy and Dio are. NOW BUY Cross Purposes Live either the CD or DVD! Long Live Sabbath!

Tony Martin is one of the best singer of Rock. His work with Black Sabbath is fantastic without exception from Eternal Idol to Cross Purposes. This live is one of the best live concerts of Black Sabbath. This concert should be realeased on vinyl with extra tracks and booklet.

A brilliant live album to promote Cross Purposes and show some of the more classic tracks in a new form 22 Aug. 2005
By K-Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This live collection of tracks was performed at Hammersmith in 1994, frontman at this time being the awesome Tony Martin, who definately gives it all despite him having some problems with a throat infection he has a strong and powerful voice which, doesn't compare to the likes of Ronnie James Dio but certainly blows the likes of Ozzy away. He tries his best to gain participation from the crowd throughtout the album making it a pleasure to listen to and shows real proffesionalisim when handling possibly 1000+ sabbath fans who are hungering for those well-loved Ozzy tracks

Even though in the majority of the fans believe he is no match for the 'one and only' Ozzy tracks, he gives them a shot and does so brilliantly, his voice complements them perfectly making songs like Paranoid and Iron Man highlight tracks as he oozes enthusiasiam in attempt to get the crowd screaming for more!

The only downfall of this CD is the lack of crowd it almost sounds like they're not there at all! However im unsure whether or not this was an edited tactical idea to allow the sharpness of Sabbath live to be shown or whether the crowd were just extremely quiet

...either way its a brilliant live album to promote Cross Purposes and show some of the more classic tracks in a new form and I definately reccomend it!

An outstanding Live VHS and CD, must have for true Sab fans 10 Aug. 2006
By Wiseguy 945 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With luck, I was wise and purchased this item a number of years ago not realizing it would go out of print (Pre-reunion tour years). This is the one and only live album featuring Tony Martin on Vocal. Good or bad, you have to acknowledge if you are a sabbath fan that tony martin had 5 albums with sabbath, and I really enjoy the work he did. He has great power in vocals, and back by the solid riffs of Toni Iommi, what a match. This Live VHS/CD features Toni Iommi, Tony Martin, Geezer Butler, and Bobby Rondinelli (drums), Geoff Nichols (keybords, backing vocals), noting Bobby as a very accomplished drummer, and Geoff as an "unofficial" sabbath member since 1979's Heaven and Hell. VHS 16 tracks :

1. Time Machine

2. Children of the Grave

3. I Witness

4. Mob Rules

5. Into the Void

6. Anno Mundi

7. Black Sabbath

8. Neon Knights

9. Psychophobia

10. Wizard

11. Cross of Thorns

12. symptom of the universe

13. headless cross

14. Paranoid

15. Iron Man

16. Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

The CD is 13 track, same order minus Mob rules, Anno Mundi, and Neon Knights.

The mastering and sound on the VHS and CD are second to none, and it is the most comprehensive set of Black sabbath work played on a stage by the group, covering all camps from the Dio fans to the Ozzy forever gang. It does miss the 2 albums Born again (ian gillen) and Seventh Star (Glenn Hughes), but you can't have everything. Tony is spot on with his guitar work, sounding just like it was layed down in the studio. This is a must have Item for a comprehensive sabbath fan. Hopefully, you can get the complete set with CD and VHS. Unfortunately, I don't think we will ever see this on CD since IRS records went belly up, and Sharron Osbourne has her hands into everything (e.g. the sad re-release of the Ozzy catalog, ouch bad memories). So get this if you can, you won't be dissapointed

One of the greatest live performances ever!!! 5 Jun. 2007
By Concerned One - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Tony Martin era of black sabbath was around for 5 albums, a greatest hits, and a live album, yet even a lot of Sabbath fans do not know any of them exist, or do not like them. I think this live album is a brilliant capturing of the 25 years that Sabbath had behind them at the filming of this. Just an excellent set list ranging from the first album to cross purposes. Tony Martin I do not hesitate to say in my opinion is a better vocalist than Dio, especially in this live performance. The guitar and bass work is tight, and this just keeps moving from beginning to end. Great Camera work and splicing also. If you must own one album from this era, it should be this or Sabbath Stones. A hands down must have for all Sabbath Fans

I own every Album Part 3: Cross Purposes Live 9 Aug. 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
By far, the rarest cd to find in the Black Sabbath library. This was the Hammersmith concert of 1994, staring Tony Iommi, Tony Martin, Geezer Butler, Bob Rodinelli, and Geoff Nicholls on Keybords. I only own the cd, but it was a great performance, even if Tony Martin had a sore throat. Five Stars. Check Forbidden and Black Sabbath (Self Title'd) for my other reviews.
Black Sabbath - 'Cross Purpose Live' (IRS Records) 21 Feb. 2013
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Believe that this (now) hard-to-find CD was specially released only-with a VHS video. For all I know, it may have since then been put out by it's self but I seriously doubt it. I do remember unexpectedly discovering this disc in a used CD store sometime ago, likely as many as umpteen years back. Obviously, this live CD was to support their 'Cross Purpose' 1994 title. No dis to Ozzy, but vocalist Tony Martin doesn't ham it up like the Oz does (personally, with this gig I didn't exactly miss that). I, for one thought that the setlist couldn't be better. Loved the way that Martin handled lead vox on Sabbath classics like "Children Of The Grave", the awesome "Into The Void" (one of personal favorites), the band's namesake "Black Sabbath", "Wizard" and a few others. Plus, I enjoyed the Martin-era Black Sabbath cuts like "Cross Of Thorns" and the rocking "Headless Cross". Needless to say, this a very enjoyable live '90's Sabbath CD to thoroughly soak in. Very nice.
