Description

This album was bought for me as a birthday gift by one of my best friends when I was in high school. Ok, some gripes,the drums are very low in the mix plus the audience is mega distant, but the power of the guitar and bass wall of crunch is just beautiful. The liner notes state that the album was recorded in Seattle, San Antonio and Dallas during the 1982 tour in support of the Mob Rules album, but doesn't give specific information on which songs were performed in which location.

While waiting for their bandmates at the studio over a period of several days, Dio and Appice passed the time by listening to the recordings and frequently experimented with the mix by asking the engineer to adjust the levels of various parts. We were working on the Live Evil record in Los Angeles, and in fact we nicknamed him 'Little Hitler. Dio has stated that while he and Appice were not interested in drugs, Iommi and Butler were using cocaine very heavily at that time. The kids on the ocean does symbolize “Children of the Sea”, but they’re using a coffin as their boat – hence, “Children of the Grave”, too. Overall, a great set with a great sound (remix) - don’t forget it is a live album (never listened to the OG version, so cannot compare).We had to give the old man two albums, well, a live album counted as two," she is quoted as saying in Mick Wall's 2013 biography on the band. I always liked the ‘Live at Hammersmith Odeon’ album better; I feel it has a more stronger sound but Joe I’m pretty sure your aware of the Live Evil video footage, do you know if any release was intended in ’82 or if any future release is coming out? I think we were probably riding quite high on the Heaven and Hell success, and so we ended up playing really, really well. The way he conducted himself, the way he talked, it might have given that impression to the outside world, but he usually didn't mean anything by it.

The first UK CD release omitted "War Pigs" (or "Warpigs" as it was titled in the explanation for its cutting, printed on the rear of the tray-insert), so as to fit onto a single CD.In his autobiography, Iommi confesses that he was "unpleasantly surprised" that Osbourne had included only Sabbath songs and speculates "I think putting out the live album like that was down to Sharon (Osbourne, Ozzy's wife and manager), trying to put the cat among the pigeons. As usual this “super deluxe” box set is filled with all manners of Dio era Sabbath goodies, poster, book and I believe a tour booklet? The US cassette release has, as its first side, sides 1 and almost all of 2 except for "Iron Man" which fades out at end of Side 1.

AllMusic states that " Live Evil does benefit from a crystal clear, in-your-face sound, and by showcasing even amounts of both Ozzy and Dio material, effectively documents Black Sabbath's renascent tours of the early '80s.

The first is the vinyl original, then the CD back covers for the 1996 Castle version, the 2008 Rhino/Warner version, and the 2010 Deluxe Edition. In the liner notes to the 2008 retrospective The Rules of Hell, vocalist Ronnie James Dio remembers, "It was an excellent tour. On the Neon Nights: 30 Years of Heaven and Hell DVD, both Dio and Appice claim the mixing sessions were scheduled to start in the early afternoon but, on the third day, Iommi and Butler didn't show up until much later.
