The only live Black Sabbath album that does them justice,
By A Customer
This review is from: Live Evil (Audio CD)
From the title you know what you are in for when you buy this. A series of Sabbath's best tracks from both the Ozzy and Dio era's which were performed on "The Mob Rules" tour. The album begins and ends with 2 instrumentals, the first being the odd "E5150" which opens into Neon Nights and the second is "Fluff" which continues from the end of Children of the Grave. Dio adds his own lines to boost the songs more and has all the enthusiasm you would expect from a live Black Sabbath show. His version of Heaven and Hell is livened up by him getting the audience envolved before Tony Iommis 5 minute long solo which ends where "The Sign of the Southern Cross" starts. Overall a great album with a hugely diverse mix of tracks from the short and punchy "Mob Rules" to the long drawnout affair of "War Pigs" with Vinnie Appice's drum solo finshing the song off.
