Ozzy Era Black Sabbath Reissues Announced
Live at Last was originally released without permission from the band. Its poor sound quality tarnished what should have been the ultimate prize for Sabbath fans, as the only live document of Ozzy-era Sabbath to have been released at that time (July 1980).
Past Lives was released much later (August 2002) and received rightful attention on the mixing board before it was passed along to the public. Disc one of the album is, in fact, Live at Last, mixed properly. A second disc, recorded between 1970 and 1975, captures the band at their best on tracks like "Iron Man," "Black Sabbath" and "Fairies Wear Boots." No bonus tracks have been announced at this point, but there is a promised sound upgrade.
