About this deal

The UK cassette release had, as its first side, sides 1 and 3 of the vinyl release, with side two of the cassette being vinyl sides 2 and 4. In the liner notes to the 2008 retrospective The Rules of Hell, vocalist Ronnie James Dio remembers, "It was an excellent tour. I was worried before Hammersmith came out that it would just be another failed attempt to capture the Sabbath live animal in the wild, but it worked.

citation needed] Iommi also contends that he and bassist Geezer Butler were concerned about Dio already rehearsing with other musicians for a proposed solo album offered to him by Warner Brothers Records.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. I think we were probably riding quite high on the Heaven and Hell success, and so we ended up playing really, really well. In the liner notes to The Rules of Hell, Appice states, "I knew things were coming to a close from some of the things that were happening on the road. Finally, there’s this image, which is a small picture of the CD longbox from the 80’s when this kind of packaging was the style.

It contains some of Tony Iommi’s finest moments and I was very impressed with Vinny’s drum solo after Warpigs. 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. 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? When Iommi arrived days later, he asked the engineer what Dio had been doing in his absence and was told that he had frequently requested that the vocals be brought up higher in the mix.Dio steadfastly denied that he altered the mix and accused Iommi and Butler of fabricating the story. The first was the 1980 release of the unsanctioned Live at Last album, and the second was former lead vocalist Ozzy Osbourne's 1982 release of a live album consisting entirely of Black Sabbath songs. Dio's account attributed the breakup to a misunderstanding arising as the result of Iommi's drug abuse.
