After years of rumours ,will they, wont they,Ozzy and the boys reunited for a couple of gigs from which this recording comes.
From the opening sirens of 'War Pigs' to the last notes of 'Paranoid',the band takes us on a time machine back through the hallowed era with classic afer classic,'Black Sabbath','Iron Man''Children Of The Grave''Sweet Leaf','Snowblind' & 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath',they're all here,while selected album cuts such as 'Electric Funeral','Spiral Architect'have the crowd begging for more.
And there is more , a stunning 'Faires Wear Boots', a visceral 'Dirty Women', a jaw dropping 'Into The Void' and a breath taking 'Orchid/Lord of this World' with 'N.I.B' & 'Behind The Wall Of Sleep' making up the numbers.Interestingly the booklet has a set list which shows 'The Wizard' and 'Symptom of the Universe',sadly nether made the album,they would have been the icing on the cake.
This is a fantastic live album and shows you what all the fuss was about,stunning band stunning songs,sadly the 2 studio tracks cannot hold a(black?)candle to the earlier output and the planned studio album never happened.
The whole set is presented in a digipak with excellent booklet and guitar pic.5 stars all the way
