However, a few complaints about this album must be said. While the band themselves have been captured in full flight, the crowd is barely audible. This is evidenced especially during "Heaven and Hell", when Dio lets the crowd participate. This is a great idea, but they can't be heard! For this reason, it doesn't have a good live feel to it; you can't picture yourself being at this gig like you can on Iron Maiden's "Rock in Rio", for example.
The other complaint is: where are song introductions? Dio barely talks to the crowd on this one. This can be answered by the fact that when remastering the album and putting it all onto one CD (the original was split onto two CDs), all in-between song talking had to be cut out, and "Fluff" reduced to a mere nine seconds of audible sound. I'd have been willing to pay an extra few quid for a full concert! My advice would be if you can get hold of the 2-CD version, then do, it must be better than this.
If you want a decent live album, then look elsewhere. But if you're interested in hearing Mr Dio singing Ozzy-era Sabbath, then this album delivers in loads aplenty.
booklet is excellent . nice price .
