    I thought this was a strike back at Sabbath by Ozzy, I didn't like it at all! Thought it was a dirty play, Sabbath had just released LIVE EVIL... and then this came out and as Ozzy always did, eclipsed Sabbath once again!

      It was definitely a political move on the part of Sharon, that much is clear. Was this before or after she sent Tony Iommi a box of shite in the mail?

        Here in the USA it just really served to perpetuate the notion that Sabbath = Ozzy's backing band.

        Really, at that time Ozzy/Sharon could have just done an EP with "Paranoid," "War Pigs," and "Iron Man" and it would have sold by the tankload, no matter who else was on it.
        He is not here. He has risen!

          Amen brother!

          If Speak Of The Devil hadn't been released and it were solely up to Live Evil, I don't think I would've gotten into Sabbath they way I did.


          Ozzy might've eclipsed Live Evil with Speak Of The Devil, but it also got Sabbath a lot more fans because of it's release.
