05 - Die Young
Notes from the net:
Here's an interesting show that surfaced couple of years ago.
The original disc is labeled Dragons & Kings and has the following description "The music material is directly copied from the original tape owned by Cozy Powell. The tape was passed on to Cozy by Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath" (presumably to allow Cozy to learn these songs for shows.) How accurate that is, is unclear. But there have been a lot of tapes released after Cozy's passing that are supposed to be from his basement tapes...so who knows.
The show itself is an amazing quality Soundboard Recording. Too bad it is also very very incomplete. This is taken straight from the soundboard, no mixing has been done. The venue and location of this one is unclear. It is claimed to be from August of 1980 which would mean that it's from the US leg of the Heaven And Hell World tour. It can't be from after that since it does have Bill Ward on drums.
This also is not the Hartford show that was also released officially on the Heaven And Hell Deluxe Edition.
Regardless this is a MUST HAVE for all Sabbath fans! A great recording of a fantastic preformance! Ronnie really tears out on Black Sabbath, absolutely amazing!
