Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of this 1980 live album from the Hard Rock icons. Although controversial in nature due to being released without permission or sanction by the band at the time, Live At Last was a landmark release for Black Sabbath, it being their first proper live album to feature Ozzy Osbourne on vocals. Reaching Top 5 in the UK chart, the tracks were recorded on the Vol. 4 tour some seven years prior in 1973 and specifically from shows performed in Manchester and London. Live At Last thus presents an honest interpretation of a Black Sabbath show as it went down at the time: rough and ready, yet with intensely focused on-stage musical performances delivering a set crammed with the best of their repertoire to date and rapturously received by the fans. Sanctuary.

Biography

Black Sabbath is credited with creating heavy metal. The success of their first two albums - Black Sabbath and Paranoid - marked a paradigm shift in the world of rock. Not until Black Sabbath upended the music scene did the term “heavy metal” enter the popular vocabulary to describe the denser, more thunderous offshoot of rock over which they presided.

I'm so tempted to give this five stars because of the incredible highlights of the concert, but I just can't quite drop five stars on a recording with the sound quaity of "Live at Last." The word you'll see over and over describing this album is "bootleg," which is essentially correct. The show was recorded with the intent of doing a live album, but various issues led to those plans being scrapped. However, right after Ozzy left a few years later, it was given an unauthorized release in Europe and has been widely available ever since. I can see why the sound is less than perfect, but even in subtracting a star because of it, I still think it's better than what I expected after hearing and reading so much criticism. I can hear Ozzy and the instruments clearly, but the guitar is a little too low, the vocals sound a little distant, and overall it's kind of muddy. In other words, it sounds like a bootleg, but maybe on the better end of bootlegs.

Despite the sound issues, it's a must-have concert to hear. Highlights? How about "Killing Yourself to Live" before it appeared on "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath," complete with entirely different lyrics. It's in what sounds like finished form, but the label must have wanted different lyrics. This track is a gem for any Sabbath fanatic. As this tour came after "Vol. 4," the set has rare live performances of "Tomorrow's Dream" and "Cornucopia," which are both fantastic. Most impressive of all, the eighteen-minute-plus "Wicked World" medley/jam is worth the price of the CD by itself.

A remastered version here. The early, original CD release had flat sound.
Three stars because there is better.

Felt the need to give this one a proper review.
Although I haven't heard this particular 2010 version, it doesn't matter.
Here's why...

This remaster is likely identical to Past Lives, disc one.
The same tracks as Live At Last, and you get the second disc on that release.
Sanctuary does a fine job with their UK Black Sabbath catalogue.

A lively pair of shows from 1973 are the sources for Live At Last.

A little background on the 1980 vinyl release. The market was starved, for a regular record company release of Black Sabbath for years.
People snapped it up and it sold well. By this time, the band had moved on with Ronnie James Dio. Heaven and Hell was making a huge splash. Legions of Ozzy fans now had the chance to get something better, then common bootleg quality.

Also, this was the Volume 4 tour. Killing Yourself to Live is in a developmental stage.
Some different, and not as great lyrics. Add in some extra 70's style jamming on Wicked World.

Yes, Ozzy Loves You! If you ever attended his shows - that is how he is.
A real live rocker and party animal. I prefer that to him saying the F word too often, in later years.
We Love You All, was what he used to say. A bit strange maybe. But, the shows were big parties!

This Live At Last always sounded soundboard sourced.
Has it's limitations. Even the original vinyl is mediocre.

So the remaster is a good improvement.

After all of this, here is the real deal...

Just get Past Lives.

I'm a person who does not study music, (ie )tempos and I probably couldn't tell what chords the guitars are in . But I just stumbled on that album one day at Fred Meyer in the bargain bin . but when I first heard the tape version I thought it was a close second to the live evil album. Best 3 dollars I ever spent 1989 dollars.

HORRIBLE SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality of this CD is horrible. There are "remastered" version of this CD that are just as bad.

There is a new reissue of this CD called Past Lives. It contains this CD plus another CD of live material. They did a suprising job in cleaning up the sound. It is still is perfect, or even professional quality, but it is certainly much better than this.

Along with the sound, I really don't like the performance. They don't play very well and Ozzie keeps yelling that he loves me. He must yell it 30 times throughout the CD. I don't listen to a group like Black Sabbath to be told that I am loved. The guitar playing is especially poor. That is why groups like Black Sabbath and the Who originally relied more on bass and drums than on guitar. Iommi does get better in later years, but not here.
