    I haven't heard much except for a track here and there. The Metal Allegiance cover of "We Rock" is definitely one of my all time favorites.

    Probably both Metal Allegiance albums. Enjoyed both a lot.

    I will admit, a lot of the tracks on Live Evil sound like the bass frequencies have been cut from the drums. I consider it aesthetically pleasing to my ears, however. Different tracks seem to have different mixes, as well as parts of tracks, which might explain the stories of band members sneaking into the studio at night to twiddle the knobs on the board. Dio sounds a bit distant but to me that just adds to the grandeur. I find the sequence from the drum solo through "Iron Man" absolute bliss.

    Just like Exit Stage Left and Beast From The East I thought the sound of Live Evil was a bit like standing in the car park listening to the show.

    I'm quite happy with the original vinyl which I don't recall when and where I found it, but it must've been around 1987, at my local hardly used.

    11 mins 13 secs of divinity: from that very live album of 1977 by Rainbow and the meandering jam meistery via that unrepeatable quintet of stage based wizardry.

    It's track 2, 'Medley/Man on The Silver Mountain/Blues/Starstruck(/reprise outro') and every so oft, the reminder is necessary.

    Not too fast, not too slow, all in quantities perfectly metered out: a lesson for the musician and wonder for Y. Truly.

    I have a hard time listening to USA for MOD now, and if I do I generally at least skip "Are You Hungry?", but there is no denying Gross Misconduct. Kickass record, to be sure. That and Surfin' MOD are bona fide classics.

    I'm with you. I love those albums. Our local radio station would play Testament's "Return to Serenity" which I always thought was a great song.

    If you're a fan of Live Evil I highly recommend Live At The Hammersmith Odeon. Disc 2 of the Mob Rules deluxe set or as a standalone set, although the latter might be out of print. Miles better than LE, in my opinion.

    I've shied away from reissues of RJD 'Sabbath material but you've peaked my interest. :thumbsup:

    At first I misread that as you have always shied away from RJD Sabbath material---my mind was blowing for a second, ha.

    This morning I'm cranking Orchid. As far as I'm concerned, there are two 21st century doomy Sabbathy bands--Orchid and Witchcraft.

    Orchid's last release was a single in 2015--so I was assuming maybe they were done, though their website shows them playing at some UK festival in August, so maybe not.

    Would love a new album or EP, to be sure.

    These guys are pretty decent but I am not sure what sound they are looking for. All of their previous releases sound like old school AC/DC. This release was more like Sabbath than AC/DC.

    Wow I am digging this, gonna queue up the album.'

    I do remember hearing these guys' first album back when it came out. I haven't really followed them, but yeah, I never woulda guessed they had a Sabbathy album in their catalog.

    The stand-alone live at Hammersmith CD went out of print in 10 seconds, I think it was Ltd. to 5,000 copies. Highly recommended no matter which version you get incl. vinyl.

    He's done a fair amount of guest appearances over the years so it's hard to keep track. I thought his newest effort, The Lucid, is pretty good. Has an Alice N Chains kind of vibe to it me thinks.

    I didn't pay much attention to David's side projects, but I can recall F5, Metal Allegiance (already mentioned), the most recent Lucid you posted and Altitudes and Attitude. Also Ellefson's solo album No Cover.

    I have a record by Hawaii with Marty Friedman that I don't think I've ever listened to. How does it stack up?

    Here's the thing...it's an imperfect recording in that there are several moments marred by feedback...BUT...it's an unbelievable performance and the mix is spectacular.
