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 ...

Format: Audio CD
Years after it`s initial release this album was played around with and currently made into the first cd of Past Lives, NOT taken from it as one other reviewer has stated.

It was taken from recordings at Manchester Free Trade Hall and the Rainbow Theatre (North london) in 1973.
The whole back catalogue was re-issued on NEMS by EX manager Patrick Meehan, who caused the boys major legal troubles and the reason why a brilliant track called "The Writ" (on Sabotage) was penned.

When listening to "Live at Last", note the recordings were made in 1973 so consequently are very basic. However, sound quality and technology at that time aside, this is a great album and a real must for those of us who were around at the start of Sabbath.

I certainly wouldnt recommend buying this if you dont know the original line up with Ozzy or have an open mind regarding 70`s recording quality.

like the many recreated bands , purple , maiden , marillion , a change is as good as a lot of codswallop . This is just too late , like the rolling bones , 30 years beyond prime , and an insult to their peak brilliance . I do not know why they bothered , other than commercial reasons - the biography dvd , is a different ball park , must have , against , best avoided . Only one band have succesfully reformed and been better after 35+ years , judas priest - in the Budoken , beyond brilliance , unmissable .

Black Sabbath in Their Prime 5 Sept. 2014
By J. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm so tempted to give this five stars because of the incredible highlights of the concert, but I just can't quite drop five stars on a recording with the sound quaity of "Live at Last." The word you'll see over and over describing this album is "bootleg," which is essentially correct. The show was recorded with the intent of doing a live album, but various issues led to those plans being scrapped. However, right after Ozzy left a few years later, it was given an unauthorized release in Europe and has been widely available ever since. I can see why the sound is less than perfect, but even in subtracting a star because of it, I still think it's better than what I expected after hearing and reading so much criticism. I can hear Ozzy and the instruments clearly, but the guitar is a little too low, the vocals sound a little distant, and overall it's kind of muddy. In other words, it sounds like a bootleg, but maybe on the better end of bootlegs.

Despite the sound issues, it's a must-have concert to hear. Highlights? How about "Killing Yourself to Live" before it appeared on "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath," complete with entirely different lyrics. It's in what sounds like finished form, but the label must have wanted different lyrics. This track is a gem for any Sabbath fanatic. As this tour came after "Vol. 4," the set has rare live performances of "Tomorrow's Dream" and "Cornucopia," which are both fantastic. Most impressive of all, the eighteen-minute-plus "Wicked World" medley/jam is worth the price of the CD by itself. An epic arrangement, it sees Sabbath playing "Wicked World," a couple minutes of solos, an unnamed jam that sounds a lot like the acoustic part at the end of "Symptom of the Universe" (which was still several years away from being a song)," about half of "Supernaut," a drum solo, more Iommi, and finally back to "Wicked World" for the finish. It's one of my favorite individual pieces of Sabbath music to listen to and should be experienced by anyone who considers themselves a Sabbath fan.

Despite its audio flaws, "Live at Last" features an excellent set full of classic performances, and is a great chronicle of mid-'70's Sabbath. Aside from its release back in 1980 and subsequent CD versions, it was more recently made available on the official Sabbath release "Past Lives." That album is a 2-CD set which also features another full disc of live material. With "Live at Last" being only a couple dollars cheaper at the time of this review, "Past Lives" is the better buy. Besides the extra disc, it has excellent packaging, photos, and liner notes. Whichever version you go with, this performance is incredible and should be sought out if you love Sabbath. Five-star band, songs, and show.

2010 Remaster here- should be the same remaster available within Past Lives. 27 Aug. 2014
By The Shade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A remastered version here. The early, original CD release had flat sound.
Three stars because there is better.

Felt the need to give this one a proper review.
Although I haven't heard this particular 2010 version, it doesn't matter.
Here's why...

This remaster is likely identical to Past Lives, disc one.
The same tracks as Live At Last, and you get the second disc on that release.
Sanctuary does a fine job with their UK Black Sabbath catalogue.

A lively pair of shows from 1973 are the sources for Live At Last.

A little background on the 1980 vinyl release. The market was starved, for a regular record company release of Black Sabbath for years.
People snapped it up and it sold well. By this time, the band had moved on with Ronnie James Dio. Heaven and Hell was making a huge splash. Legions of Ozzy fans now had the chance to get something better, then common bootleg quality.

Also, this was the Volume 4 tour. Killing Yourself to Live is in a developmental stage.
Some different, and not as great lyrics. Add in some extra 70's style jamming on Wicked World.

Yes, Ozzy Loves You! If you ever attended his shows - that is how he is.
A real live rocker and party animal. I prefer that to him saying the F word too often, in later years.
We Love You All, was what he used to say. A bit strange maybe. But, the shows were big parties!

This Live At Last always sounded soundboard sourced.
Has it's limitations. Even the original vinyl is mediocre.

So the remaster is a good improvement.

After all of this, here is the real deal...

Just get Past Lives.

Black Sabbath live at last 9 Dec. 2014
By Alexander Gjuricic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm a person who does not study music, (ie )tempos and I probably couldn't tell what chords the guitars are in . But I just stumbled on that album one day at Fred Meyer in the bargain bin . but when I first heard the tape version I thought it was a close second to the live evil album. Best 3 dollars I ever spent 1989 dollars.

Get Past Lives instead 18 April 2011
By kireviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
HORRIBLE SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality of this CD is horrible. There are "remastered" version of this CD that are just as bad.

There is a new reissue of this CD called Past Lives. It contains this CD plus another CD of live material. They did a suprising job in cleaning up the sound. It is still is perfect, or even professional quality, but it is certainly much better than this.

Along with the sound, I really don't like the performance. They don't play very well and Ozzie keeps yelling that he loves me. He must yell it 30 times throughout the CD. I don't listen to a group like Black Sabbath to be told that I am loved. The guitar playing is especially poor. That is why groups like Black Sabbath and the Who originally relied more on bass and drums than on guitar. Iommi does get better in later years, but not here.
