Boston 1992 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Orpheum Theater, Boston, MA, August 9, 1992. Complete soundboard used for FM broadcast. This show has also circulated as Hexensabbath (incomplete); Masters Of Boston and Boston ‘92.

While we are still on the Ronnie James Dio tribute trail…

A popular show among Black Sabbath/Ronnie James Dio fans, and while several versions of the show exist, the general feeling is that this is “one of the best Black Sabbath boots out there, said to be better than the Asbury Park ‘75 tracks.”

This is what metal fan charger1 posted on the internet:

Black Sabbath was losing its way fast in the late ’70s with drugged out Ozzy who was unable to sing, write or preform. Luckily the band did the right decision and fired him. Then Tony (Iommi) found Ronnie James Dio who had just left Rainbow and asked him to join the band, and he did so happily… the result was probably one of the best Heavy Metal albums ever made, Heaven And Hell, and a hugely successful world tour; another album called The Mob Rules, another huge world tour where they recorded the live album Live Evil. Unfortunately the era came to an end even before Live Evil was ever released. But thankfully Geezer (Butler) joined Ronnie on stage in 1990 and they decided to reform the classic MK II lineup of Black Sabbath and the result was the masterpiece known as Dehumanizer and another world tour…

Thanks to HertogJan for sharing the lossless tracks on the internet.

  2. Never was an RJD fan until I saw Heaven & Hell in 08. The man had a genuine affection for his audience, he loved what he did and he did it bloody well. I became a fan of Ronnie James Dio that night.

    As a result, I can only listen to the songs from his Sabbath days that he was personally involved with…Iron Man, War Pigs, those are for Ozzie…just give me those songs that Ronnie vetted. Murderous.

    And there is no other singer–nobody–who should attempt “Man on the Silver Mountain”. That tune is Dio’s, more even than Blackmore’s, dare I say it.

    Miss you, Ronnie. You’re a great showman and seem like a great spirit, a cool guy, from where I stand. RIP.

  4. Dio’s passing has been this year’s most tragic news. Thankfully, he has left his fans a phenomenal recorded legacy, and many positive memories. R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio, and thanks BigO for a listen to some of his live output along the way.

  5. I was in this concert in Boston. The opener was Prong.

    How can I get this CD?

    By Marcial Garcia on Jun 1, 2013

  6. Marcial, if a assume you’re a novice, and you’re talkin bout these specific recordings here, it’s right click on the song, choose “save_as”, and have a pre-named folder to save it to. Once all done, burn them to CD. If you’re talkin CD quality originals, try DIME or any of the other torrent sites. The above liner notes sometimes list which one it’s available on, and who did the above notes. You might direct your question specifically to BigO in your comment.

  7. oops, I should have said “If I assume..”

  8. My apologies for bothering you, yet again, but track 207 is the only one here not downloading. Let’s face it: you have a veritable treasure trove of classic concerts and I’ve only begun to scratch the surface!! As always many, many thanks.
