This Is A Sabotage! [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Hammersmith Odeon, London, UK; October 22, 1975. Very good audience recording.

Just to get into the Halloween mood…

Thanks to Gardener who first shared this in 2006; and to uploaders such as NaomiWatts and rareconcerts for keeping the show alive on the net.

Original notes:

First of all, many thanks to John Y. for originally sending me this priceless treasure. This very good audience recording has been mainly uncirculated for over thirty years. It has surfaced in mp3 form just a month or two ago and now here you go with the real deal, straight from the master! This was the famous Hammersmith show when the power went off for 2 minutes between “War Pigs” and “Sabbra Cadabra”. The performance is thrilling as were almost every shows from the “Sabotage” tour (even if Ozzy’s vocals from the beginning of the show aren’t really in key due to the flu).

  16. innoc - why would i send u anything? what makes u think we have ever had any sort of deal? what are u even talking about? we dont communicate privately and clearly we have never communicated here about anything where i would send u anything. even if i did have any sort of arrangement to send u anything.. i dont have an address to send u anything. and i have never received anything from u. and would never want anything from u. why would u think i would send u anything? your entire posting is preposterous.
