||End Of An Era|
This 2-CD set marked the end of the real Black Sabbath, 1970 - 1982. The band had not only survived Ozzy Osbourne's departure in 1979, but they even managed to expand their musical horizons with new singer Ronnie James Dio. Live Evil remains a good encapsulation of Sabbath's early 1980s era with Dio. It's somewhat slick, but most live shows were in those days! And while it's not as magical as the two studio albums recorded with Dio, it does exude the same mystical atmosphere. Dio left Sabbath shortly before Live Evil was released in January 1983, and the band later went through some ill-advised personnel changes that effectively killed the aura of mystery and mystique that was so integral to Sabbath's appeal. This album is a good reminder of what Black Sabbath really was - and probably never will be again.

||GOOD, BUT NOT ESSENTIAL|
i first got this on vinyl in early 1983,and looking back on it,this does not really sound like a live album.It does not have as much raw energy,and sounds too polished.It seems almost sacreligious that Dio would be singing '70's Black Sabbath songs!?

I am a real fan of Black Sabbath and Ronnie James Dio but this albumn no is great,however there are powerful live performances,a great voice,great songs but a worst production by Tony Iommi.For me,the albumn is a good reminder of what Black Sabbath really was.

||Not bad for being post-Ozzy.|
I am a fan of the Ozzy era Black Sabbath, but I must admit that the Dio era is not bad at all. I actually prefer Dio when he was in Rainbow. I have listened to this album along with "Heaven And Hell" and "Mob Rules" and they are without a doubt the last three great Sabbath albums. I do agree with the "End of an era" review. Sabbath did in fact survive the departure of Ozzy Osbourne but it did not survive the departure of Ronnie James Dio. "Live Evil" marks the real end. Anything post Dio sucks, especially "Born Again".
