This record is on its way to become a true rarity: deleted from the remastered Ozzy catalog, it is now only available as an import item or leftover from the `95 remaster. For years I hesitated about buying this, as I considered it to be something of an oddity, an apocryphal release of sorts, caught right in the no-man's-land: it was an Ozzy solo record, but it contained no solo songs. Instead, it contained only Black Sabbath songs recorded during his US '82 tour at a show in New York, just a few months after Randy Rhoads tragic death.

Being a major Randy fan, I really didn't know what to make of this release, and I was frustrated `cause it wasn't either a true Black Sabbath or Ozzy record, but rather some kind of hybrid. I didn't know it at the time, but there were a lot of reasons that justified this release, at least for Ozzy: first, Ozzy had planned to release a live record featuring Randy, but the idea was scrapped after his untimely death.

Second, Sharon and Ozzy were trying to negotiate his release from his original record deal with Sharon's father, Don Arden, who was racking it up taking the lion's share of the revenue generated by record sales; the contract demanded a final record, and it was decided to give him one full of Sabbath material as a retaliation, knowing full well that such a record could not compete with the potential sales of a brand new studio record.

Third, Ozzy hated the poorly mixed, rush-released "Live at Last" album, which was released in Europe and constituted the only Sabbath live document at the time; and last but not least, Ozzy and Sharon heard that Sabbath were planning to release a live album with their (then) current lineup with Ronnie James Dio, so they thought this was a perfect occasion to annoy them.

This is an excellent live performance of Ozzy/Black Sabbath's greatest hits. What's cool is that there are many songs on this album that aren't normally found outside their original recordings. "Never Say Die", "The Wizard", and "Symptom of The Universe" are killer hits that deserved their place on the performance stage. Ozzy and Brad Gillis know just how to do these cuts justice, and bring down the house with their performance. This is a clear, distinct recording, even including Ozzy talking to the crowd in-between songs. For anyone who has gone to an Ozzy Osbourne concert ,or anyone who's never been able to make it, this album will get you into a head-banging, moshing mood.

One thing you have to give Ozzy, he has always surrounded himself with the best musical talent around. And nobody, nobody, has ever played with as many legendary guitar players. Perhaps the one that gets talked about the least is Brad Gillis and anybody that has ever heard this album would have to scream why!? Gillis absolutley shreds, playing as energetic and crisp notes as I have ever heard. I have always felt that this album had to have been double tracked in the studio, but have later found out that it was all live, Gillis is a freak! It is too bad that Gillis did not opt to stay with Ozzy, especially since he left Oz to go do that NightRanger crap. If you like Ozzy and his Sabbath hits and love incredible guitar playing, you cannot go wrong with this album.

By now everyone knows the story - Ozzy had a contractual obligation in late 1982 to deliver a live album, but didn't want to (so he claims) release any of Randy's recordings so close to the guitarist's death only six months earlier, feeling that this would be unfairly capitalizing on the tragedy of March 19, 1982. Instead, he opted to record his live band; with Night Ranger guitarist Brad Gillis filling in for Rhoads since the previous April, the band had just finished touring in support of Diary Of A Madman, and they were tight - no question about it. That Brad Gillis is a monster guitar player is also not in question; whatever one may think of Night Ranger's power pop, there is no denying that Gillis had completely mastered the genre in a way that can't help but make me wonder what might have been, had Gillis decided to stay on w/Ozzy and record at least one studio album. Listen to Gillis on the opening cut, Symptom Of The Universe. Gone is Tony Iommi's de-tuned guitar and somewhat anemic tone (I am a huge Iommi fan, but his tone on some of the studio albums left much to be desired) - in its place is a liquid-sounding Mesa Boogie tone that to these ears, even twenty years later - has yet to be equalled. Brad Gillis took classic songs - songs that in of themselves are definitive of an entire genre - and made some of them (dare I say?) better... He did this not by deconstructing the originals, but by respecting them enough to treat them to an outing that they had never had in the (very capable) hands of Tony Iommi - Gillis really sounds like he's having a blast playing these songs! At the very least, I think that fans of Black Sabbath who don't feel that these versions are necessarily "better" than the originals will at least see them for the gems they are in their own right. A legendary guitar performance, captured in all its glory. Five stars easy.

Great CD! Worth every penny! Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys metal! If you enjoy metal, you have to aggressively search to find the gems, as the radio plays the same old crap over and over, and while Sirius is much better, they hardly ever play most of the gems I've found by looking at metal label websites and metal magazine reviews online. Check-out some of the CDs that I have reviewed in my past, and I guarantee you will find something you may not have ever heard of! Stay metal and support our metal community!
