Black Sabbath - Long Beach, CA 1975

Black Sabbath played at the Long Beach Arena on September 7, 1975 on tour supporting Sabotage, for me an album of extraordinary quality that gets three of its tracks on the setlist.
This recording was during Mike Millard's wheelchair era and sounds very good particularly for Iommi's guitar since Ozzy's vocals seem a little distant.
This is volume 36 of the The Lost and Found Mike the MICrophone Tapes, an incredible work being made by the collective JEMS.
