11/6/76 & 11/7/77

My girlfriend and I attended both concerts. The Long Beach concert was a bit stiff (got poor reviews), the band seemed nervous appearing before the mega-huge (sold-out) crowd. Rumors had it that the Long Beach auditorium authorities were censoring the band. However, the band really rocked the Swing Auditorium. Unfortunately, Ozzy's voice was a tad bit hoarse from his performance the night before.

Black Sabbath at the Swing was the best concert ever !!! I remember it like it just occurred.
