  • Black Sabbath on the Ozzfest 2001 and 2005 albums

    Tons of people don't seem to even know these albums exist, so I've struggled to find information on the quality of the music included. The Ozzfest 2001 album includes "The Wizard", while Ozzfest 2005 includes "Paranoid", "Iron Man" and "War Pigs".

    Since they're the last officially released recordings by the original Sabbath, I'm wondering if they're worth tracking down.

    I believe you'd better listen to the original recordings instead. The songs themselves aren't *ahem* too rare either.

      I don't think they're rare. Anything commercially available on a regular basis and still in print isn't gonna be rare. And I'm sure Ozzy's voice sounds better on the originals. But the performance of the OTHER musicians might be worth a listen.

        I have the 2002 version, i never seen the 2001 nor the 2005 or heard. However, I use to have "The Wizard" live, can't remember, but it was recent and Ozzy is playing the harmonica.
        Vic always says 'killing is my business, and business is good'.. He can play the symphony of destruction, after all the worlds needs a hero because the system has failed. Vic is on the killing road to Hangar 18, and he will Take No Prisioners on this holy wars.

          The only thing I liked was the Ozzfest 2001 10th Anniversary DVD had some camera angles you didn't normally see in concert footage.

          But yeah, the songs aren't that big a deal themselves. Now if Scary Dreams was on there? That would be a whole different ballgame. Surprised they didn't include that as a selling point - "New Sabbath track!"

          2002? There was no Ozzfest 2002.

            It didn't have Black Sabbath, but there was still an Ozzfest 2002. It toured Europe, visiting Donington. You even have posters for it ON YOUR WEBSITE.

              2005 was the 10th anniversary and there was a 2002 Ozzfest, I have the CD, Ozz played "War Pigs" on it and Down, Rob Zombie, Black Label Soceity & Drowning Pool (covering Creeping Death by Metallica) were on it too
