MEMORIES.
I was surprised that it was Tony -not Ozzy- who was in front of the stage. Ozzy jumped and moved a lot in order to draw attention, as if he meant : “Look, I am the boss”.

This has been something I’ve had for a long, long time, and every single time I’ve traded it, the person I’ve sent this to has been blown away at the upgrade from whatever source they had owned before. Since I’ve not seen this show on Dime, and folks claim that this is THE DEFINITIVE COPY, I thought I’d post it. Instead of posting a CD copy of the tape that I had, I borrowed the tape from the person I got my copy from. I’m glad I did, as his tape turned out to be a very old Maxell Metal particle tape, which is the way he rec’d it from a Zep trader at least 20 years ago.

I’ve heard of several different boot LP’s that have been made of this show, and this is supposedly not from any of those. The recording is so clean and sharp that you can really hear every minute thing that happens on stage,,,,,comments that Ozzy makes under his breath, guitars being plugged and unplugged, every little thing, very loud and clear. Some pops audible between songs have been debated as being LP surface noise, but with constant plugging and unplugging going on between songs, I don’t think that’s the case. The main things that convince me that this is an actual source tape are the lack of cuts which would be indicative of a boot LP of this length(at least four sides of wax), and the inclusion of ALL of the between song dialogue INCLUDING almost 2 solid minutes between the main set and the encore of nonstop soundboard audience noise through the on-stage mics. None of that is common in the boot LP world. Even though the opening intro is missing, this is also the longest, most complete unedited version…. from what I’ve been told.

I am not a Sabbath collector by any means, so if anything here is not accurate, let me know.
I do believe, however, that this is VERY possibly the best version available of this amazing show!

from sabbathlive.com:

A highly respected Sabbath collector contacted King Biscuit to inquire about the full release of their 1975 show, which was thought to be from Philadelphia by most people at the time. King Biscuit had been taking requests for future releases, so this was a completely legitimate request. Their initial response was that the show “wasn’t good enough”. But once the KB engineers had a listen to the tapes, they quickly discovered how wrong their assessment was. One of them even asked the collector to identify a song for them. It turned out to be “Spiral Architect”! Also, the tapes were identified as being from the Asbury Park show, NOT Philadelphia as previously thought. [Note: However, the engineer did claim the date was still 8/6/75, although the Asbury Park show has been proven to be a day earlier. Sabbath performed in Philadelphia on 7/31/75.]

The King Biscuit kindly sent the collector a complimentary copy of the show, since there were now plans to release it officially. But when he tried to follow up on this release a few months later, the King Biscuit employee no longer worked there and the release was apparently nixed. And it was from this ‘advance promo’ that the current slew of Asbury Park bootlegs originated from.
