This is the only official release of a Black Sabbath Tour with Tony Martin on Vocals. (Would have been 2nd if Live In Moscow 89' was released) and this shows the fans that Black Sabbath are still on top of their game. Tony Martin shows us that he can still sing the Sabbath Classic's which also include"The Wizard" which Sabbath haven't played for 20 odd Years. Sadly Tony Martin can't hit some of the high notes he's known for and sometimes his voice blows out but come on he was ill during the tour, but he still rocks it!! Iommi shreds the riffs out as usual and Geezer plays superbly and you feel like he never left, Bobby Rondinelli does well and fit well in Sabbath over all this is a Sabbath Live Album (DVD included) that is a must have! DON'T LISTEN TO THE NARROW MINDED FOOLS! That say Sabbath is Ozzy or Dio only fronted. Tony Martin proves that he deserves to be in Black Sabbath and he is in my eyes as much the voice of Black Sabbath as Ozzy and Dio are. NOW BUY Cross Purposes Live either the CD or DVD! Long Live Sabbath!

Tony Martin is one of the best singer of Rock. His work with Black Sabbath is fantastic without exception from Eternal Idol to Cross Purposes. This live is one of the best live concerts of Black Sabbath. This concert should be realeased on vinyl with extra tracks and booklet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good live Sabbath cd 12 Sept. 2009
By Aracelio Cruz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I really enjoy this live cd alot. While I am partial to Sabbath w/Dio on vocals I can definitely listen to and enjoy the Martin era recordings. If you are a Sabbath fan and can find this cd, I would recommend you go ahead and get it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Weak 14 Feb. 2017
By Deimos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Not Black Sabbath. The classic Iommi riffs are great but the vocal performance of the classic Sabbath songs is very weak and the Tont Martin era songs are really weak all around. Grab Live Evil, Past Lives, Reunion, Gatheed In Their masses or Heaven and Hell live albums. Pass on this one unless your favorite era was the Tony Martin era of "Sabbath"

4.0 out of 5 stars Black Sabbath - 'Cross Purpose Live' (IRS Records) 21 Feb. 2013
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Believe that this (now) hard-to-find CD was specially released only-with a VHS video. For all I know, it may have since then been put out by it's self but I seriously doubt it. I do remember unexpectedly discovering this disc in a used CD store sometime ago, likely as many as umpteen years back. Obviously, this live CD was to support their 'Cross Purpose' 1994 title. No dis to Ozzy, but vocalist Tony Martin doesn't ham it up like the Oz does (personally, with this gig I didn't exactly miss that). I, for one thought that the setlist couldn't be better. Loved the way that Martin handled lead vox on Sabbath classics like "Children Of The Grave", the awesome "Into The Void" (one of personal favorites), the band's namesake "Black Sabbath", "Wizard" and a few others. Plus, I enjoyed the Martin-era Black Sabbath cuts like "Cross Of Thorns" and the rocking "Headless Cross". Needless to say, this a very enjoyable live '90's Sabbath CD to thoroughly soak in. Very nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding Live VHS and CD, must have for true Sab fans 10 Aug. 2006
By Wiseguy945 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With luck, I was wise and purchased this item a number of years ago not realizing it would go out of print (Pre-reunion tour years). This is the one and only live album featuring Tony Martin on Vocal. Good or bad, you have to acknowledge if you are a sabbath fan that tony martin had 5 albums with sabbath, and I really enjoy the work he did. He has great power in vocals, and back by the solid riffs of Toni Iommi, what a match. This Live VHS/CD features Toni Iommi, Tony Martin, Geezer Butler, and Bobby Rondinelli (drums), Geoff Nichols (keybords, backing vocals), noting Bobby as a very accomplished drummer, and Geoff as an "unofficial" sabbath member since 1979's Heaven and Hell. VHS 16 tracks :

1. Time Machine

2. Children of the Grave

3. I Witness

4. Mob Rules

5. Into the Void

6. Anno Mundi

7. Black Sabbath

8. Neon Knights

9. Psychophobia

10. Wizard

11. Cross of Thorns

12. symptom of the universe

13. headless cross

14. Paranoid

15. Iron Man

16. Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

The CD is 13 track, same order minus Mob rules, Anno Mundi, and Neon Knights.

The mastering and sound on the VHS and CD are second to none, and it is the most comprehensive set of Black sabbath work played on a stage by the group, covering all camps from the Dio fans to the Ozzy forever gang. It does miss the 2 albums Born again (ian gillen) and Seventh Star (Glenn Hughes), but you can't have everything. Tony is spot on with his guitar work, sounding just like it was layed down in the studio. This is a must have Item for a comprehensive sabbath fan. Hopefully, you can get the complete set with CD and VHS. Unfortunately, I don't think we will ever see this on CD since IRS records went belly up, and Sharron Osbourne has her hands into everything (e.g. the sad re-release of the Ozzy catalog, ouch bad memories). So get this if you can, you won't be dissapointed

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant live album to promote Cross Purposes and show some of the more classic tracks in a new form 22 Aug. 2005
By K-Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This live collection of tracks was performed at Hammersmith in 1994, frontman at this time being the awesome Tony Martin, who definately gives it all despite him having some problems with a throat infection he has a strong and powerful voice which, doesn't compare to the likes of Ronnie James Dio but certainly blows the likes of Ozzy away. He tries his best to gain participation from the crowd throughtout the album making it a pleasure to listen to and shows real proffesionalisim when handling possibly 1000+ sabbath fans who are hungering for those well-loved Ozzy tracks

Even though in the majority of the fans believe he is no match for the 'one and only' Ozzy tracks, he gives them a shot and does so brilliantly, his voice complements them perfectly making songs like Paranoid and Iron Man highlight tracks as he oozes enthusiasiam in attempt to get the crowd screaming for more!

The only downfall of this CD is the lack of crowd it almost sounds like they're not there at all! However im unsure whether or not this was an edited tactical idea to allow the sharpness of Sabbath live to be shown or whether the crowd were just extremely quiet

...either way its a brilliant live album to promote Cross Purposes and show some of the more classic tracks in a new form and I definately reccomend it!
