With all things Ozzy Osbourne equaling pay dirt these days, it's logical for a record label to exploit the opportunity in order to move some of his catalog.

With all things Ozzy Osbourne equaling pay dirt these days, it's logical for a record label to exploit the opportunity in order to move some of his catalog. But with Past Lives, Divine Recordings/Sanctuary offer Prince of Darkness die-hards a real find. The live double-CD captures the original Black Sabbath lineup in concert in 1975—a rarity, as this incarnation of the band never released a live album in America during its peak. Its 19 cuts include the requisite staples "Iron Man," "Paranoid," and "War Pigs," along with solos by Tommy Iommi and Bill Ward that will surely inspire much air-guitaring and air-drumming among their coven. Although remastered, Past Lives still retains some of the fuzziness that inevitably clouds recordings as they age, but it makes Sabbath's classic sound even more poignant.—CLT
