Immediately following the death of Ozzy Osbourne's dear friend and collaborator Randy Rhoads, tentative plans for a live recording from the Rhoads tours were quickly scrapped. Instead, the deeply troubled singer opted for a pair of one-offs at New York City's Ritz club. No one had any idea what Ozzy would do, and an evening of Black Sabbath covers was the furthest thing from everyone's mind… Opening with "Symptom Of The Universe", one of the finest metal compositions ever, the album pulls you into Ozzy's wacky and twisted world for the duration of the show. The song "Sweet Leaf" was omitted on initial Compact Disc releases of the album. This remastered edition (with superb clarity) features the previously omitted "Sweet Leaf", Sabbath's ode to herbal remedy. Osbourne's last recorded song with Sabbath, the ironically titled "Never Say Die" is rocked with renewed vigor by the ace band of Brad Gillis (Night Ranger), Rudy Sarzo and Tommy Aldridge. This release was named "Talk of the Devil" in the UK. In April 2002, this album was deleted from the Ozzy catalog and is no longer being made…
