Heaven & Hell Live from Radio City Music Hall: Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward in top form. Possibly, no probably, no definitely my favourite live heavy metal album.
They are playing to the highest standard. A standard largely set by themselves in the first place. Geezer seems to rip his bass to shreds and Tony is playing riffs like no one can. RJD, the best voice in metal, is engaging with the audience like only he could. And Bill is laying a foundation that is so solid that an earthquake couldn’t shift it. I’m only using first names here, because the show moves at a pace that leaves no time for last names. However it’s an honour to have this band make my ears bleed. I bow to this album with the utmost respect.
