I loved the California Jam (Children of the Grave) because it was amazing how good they are in concert. Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Bill Ward, and the bands first manager Jim Simpson give a lot of info about Black Sabbath and it's history. N.I.B and War Pigs are 2 AMAZING tracks so I'm glad they preformed them live... I still don't get why they don't show Geezer's bass solo in the beginning that's the only flaw in this great DVD.

What Black Sabbath did with their first lp literally shook my foundation. The integrity of that first lp was there again in the pit of my gut when I watched this video. How exciting to catch a music vibe twice in a lifetime! (I have both the Warner Bros. lp and the Vertigo lp.) Watching the years unfold within minutes on this video brought back a lot of emotional ups & downs. I was a total sell out for Sabbath and watching drugs, ego's, lack of creativity, and fighting amongst the ''Unholy Four'', left my feelings hurt to an extent. Seeing Terry & Frank talk about the times made it a little more acceptable. And much more forgivable from my perspective! Thanks guys!
