Black Sabbath: "Never Say Die" 1978 Tour; Full Concert

This was recorded on the last tour with the original lineup before they split. Before the "Never Say Die" album was recorded, Ozzy Osbourne quit the band and was briefly replaced by former Savoy Brown and Fleetwood Mac vocalist Dave Walker. Some songs were written with Walker, and the new group even performed an early version of "Junior's Eyes" with different lyrics on the BC programme, "Look Hear". Osbourne eventually rejoined the band, refusing to sing any of the songs written with Walker. These particular songs were rewritten, including "Junior's Eyes" (rewritten to be about the then-recent death of Ozzy's father). All four band members sing on "A Hard Road;" this is the only known song on which Tony Iommi sings.

The "Never..." album is not regarded as a Sabbath masterpiece - but on stage Black Sabbath still could blew everyone else back to the stone ages. Sabbath rocks!

1. Symptom Of The Universe
2. War Pigs
3. Snowblind
4. Never Say Die
