Notes: More from the Gary's Black Sabbath batch: this is one of the few USA performances of the Headless Cross tour to be caught
on video. Loudpuppy reminds me that this is the era of Sabbath that he first heard, and while it took me a while to get there, I
now see the value in these Tony Martin albums. This is pretty generated, with obstructions and ducks, but, well worth watching for
fans of the tour or band. I converted this from VHS to DVD on January 14, 2004.

After the Show

Notes: Surprisingly watchable video, considering the year it was shot and the equipment that was used - in fact, what I love about
watching these old videos is imagining the effort it took to do it back then! And the result is like being in a time machine when
you watch it - this is NOT Sabbath's best performance, but, it remains one of my favorite all-time shows!

But, is this Sabbath? Of course, this features Glenn Hughes in one of his less celebrated performances - yet, the setlist is totally
awesome, and features songs that would never be played again. This is totally worth watching if you're at all a Sabbath historian.

Another of my early VHS transfers, I completed this on January 21, 2004. I got this tape from another well-respected Sabbath trader
who offered this up in exchange for a DVD conversion; I did a few of those deals in the last days of VHS trading. It's funny to
look back on those conversions; it really made watching them a lot easier.
