3.0 out of 5 stars AVERAGE LIVE ALBUM., 2 July 2010
This review is from: Live Evil (Audio CD)
This was a missed opportunity,having seen Sabbath with Dio at the Glasgow Apollo 1980 i was well aware how great they were live,sadly this overproduced disc fails to recreate this.

All the classics from both camps are here,and although it took a bit getting used to Dio singing Ozzy material he does it with ease,highlights for me as 'Black Sabbath' love the intro and a superb 'Voodoo' with excellent solo.

However for the most part this overproduced disc sucks the life out of the music,the crowd appear to be in a different stadium and its really only for completists

If you buy the deluxe edition of MOB RULES then the bonus Live At Hammersmith disc is a truer representation of how they actually sounded.

I have this album with my original vinyl copy bought on it's original release and I agree with the comments that have been made from a number of the reviews. It was certainly over produced and we've all been made aware that this was the issue that saw Dio ousted from the band. It still stands up as a very good live album but to really get the full on vibe of Sabbath live at this period then the best option is the Deluxe version of the MOBS RULES album as the bonus live disc "Live At Hammersmith" is excellent and captures the band as they were.
