Editorial Reviews

Speak Of The Devil was filmed at Irvine Meadows, California in 1982. The show was part of the delayed continuation of the Diary Of A Madman tour following the tragic death of Randy Rhoads in March '82 in a flying accident during the early part of the tour. The show features guitarist Brad Gillis who was brought in to replace Randy Rhoads. The concert is a perfect snapshot of Ozzy Osbourne's live performances in the eighties with dramatic staging and masses of energy with a setlist based around his first two solo albums and a few Black Sabbath classics. Ozzy has always been one of heavy metal's great frontmen and, despite the difficult circumstances, this show captures him at his absolute best. / Line-up: Ozzy Osbourne (vocals); Don Airey (keyboards); Tommy Aldridge (drums); Brad Gillis (guitar); Rudy Sarzo (bass). / Track Listing:
1) Over The Mountain 2) Mr Crowley 3) Crazy Train 4) Revelation (Mother Earth) 5) Steal Away (The Night) 6) Suicide Solution 7) Guitar / Drum Solo 8) Goodbye To Romance 9) I Don't Know 10) Believer 11) Flying High Again 12) Iron Man 13) Children Of The Grave 14) Paranoid

3.0 out of 5 stars good for a piece of history. But.... August 15, 2012
By T.
Format:DVD
Its nice that this show has finally been released on DVD. The stage set is a historic one and great to be preserved on video. Just a shame that it wasn't filmed with Randy Rhoads on lead guitar, who just missed this filming. How great would that have been.

The good: the stage set and show. Tommy Aldridge on drums. Rudy Sarzo on bass (although he has a one-dimensional stage presence, just bobbing his head and licking his fingers...it does get old after awhile). Brad Gillis does a good job on guitar, considering how fast he was thrown in there and had to learn the complex material. His guitar tone gets annoying after awhile, but he's still fun to watch. Also the camera doesn't dart all over the place a gazillion times a minute like alot of newer filmed concerts do. (i dont' know why they insist on editing alot of newer concerts that way...they're nearly unwatchable because of it).

Now for the bad: For anyone that thinks Ozzy sounds good....those vocals have been fixed up and over-dubbed. Big time. This isn't new. It was done way back right after it was filmed, so all the VHS and other releases feature this too. At times, its painful to look at because the overdubbed vocals are so OBVIOUS. On occasion, Ozzy's mouth is moving after the vocals stop, and vice-versa. On the real concert tape of this show, Ozzy sounds HORRIBLE.

All in all, still a good release, although not a great one due to the overdubbed and studio fixups afterward and the great Randy Rhoads not being involved (although there's nothing anyone can do about that).
Hopefully they release the "Bark at the Moon" 1984 Salt Lake City show thats floating around right now on bootleg DVD. That show is much better than this one with even a better stage show to boot...not to mention the great Jake E Lee on guitar. Thats a 4/5 star show. I would give this one a solid 2 1/2 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must own and understand what you are getting January 1, 2013
Format:DVD
For years, this concert was available only as a foreign import. Yes, the interaction between songs was cut out. I own one of those copies. Unfortunately, I bought it for a lot of money just before this official release came out.

If you are purchasing this, you are getting the full concert footage with Ronnie's hanging and all the interaction with fans between the songs.

Lots of good reviews. I don't need to duplicate that.

Frankly, I just wanted to counter some criticisms.

Brad Gillis - One reviewer didn't like Brad's solos on Over the Mountain or Mr. Crowley (the first two songs). On the contrary, I thought Over the Mountain was quite faithful to Randy's solo. He diverted in Mr. Crowley but he went back in forth between staples of the solo and doing Brad's own thing. In regard to this I have two things to say.

1) He was filling Randy's shoes in 1982 only months after Randy's death. I should repeat that sentence because the importance of replacing Randy in 1982 cannot be overstated. Randy and Eddie were the two best metal guitarists on the planet (at least that were famous). Replacing either in 1982 is a task that nearly required incredible skill. They didn't have videos showing how to do all Randy's solos. There weren't magazines with note-for-note tablature. At a time when Randy was arguably the best in the business, Gillis stepped in and had to figure these solos out note for note give-or-take. Very impressive. In my opinion, he is one of the most overlooked guitarists in rock. Probably because his Ozzy stint was short in which he did no studio albums, just one live album and one live video and the fact that Night Ranger never quite made the mega superstar status. I have great respect for him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speak of the Devil DVD, Finally Official July 17, 2012
Format:DVD
I'm giving this five stars because of its historical and nostalgic value, and for the amazing performance of the band. The overdubbing on Ozzy's vocals would pull it down to a four if not for the quality of the whole package, which documents heavy metal at its glorious 1980's best.

This concert was recorded June 12, 1982 during the Diary of a Madman tour, less than three months after the death of Randy Rhoads. It's not the same as the CD version, featuring mostly songs from Ozzy's first two solo albums. Ozzy delivered the goods to the crowd at Irvine Meadows in California, bellowing and running around the stage like a...well, a madman...jumping up and down, clapping and headbanging relentlessly. He deserves credit for pulling off the rest of that tour after such a terrible tragedy.

Brad Gillis, Rudy Sarzo, Tommy Aldridge, and Don Airey are all spectacular backing up the Ozz-man. The performance of Gillis is nothing less than stunning. His solo after Suicide Solution, and the subsequent instrumental piece by the band that culminates with Tommy's drum solo, is nearly worth the price of the DVD alone. Tommy's solos were legendary, climaxing with his feverish hands-only routine. Rudy Sarzo matches the frantic energy of Gillis, bookending Ozzy with pure heavy metal ferocity.

The set and show production exemplify the epic grandeur of 80's concerts. A huge medieval castle flanks the band. Airey, cloaked in a black reaper's robe, occupies a balcony of the castle. A huge laser-light winged bat flies over the band and menaces the crowd. Aldridge sits atop a huge pyramidal drum riser. Everything about the staging is humongous, reminding me how much more theatrical big concerts used to be. It's without question an incredible show to watch.
