From www.sabbathlive.com:

Here's just a taste of something I KNOW many of you Sabbath collectors have been hoping and wishing for. I recently received an e-mail from The Reverend, who informed me of a pro-shot video of Sabbath's historic performance at Camden with Rob Halford. Ever the skeptic, I asked him if he could provide me a sample of this film so I could confirm the veracity of his tale.

Less than a week later, I received a package containing a DVD+R sample of one complete song - "Children Of The Grave." Any doubts or skepticism I may have had evaporated as soon as I pressed play on PowerDVD. This was definitely the real deal and quite impressive in terms of quality!

I have shared the clip only with a few very close friends and honorary Sabbathlive staffers, who were also floored. While Holmdel 2004 might be the audio champion for the Ozzfest 2004 tour at the moment, this is easily the video highlight of their recent U.S. tour. And that isn't to disparage Jim Rollner's fine film of the Englewood show, which is also quite a sweet one. It's just hard to top a pro-shot digital film of such a unique show.

While I cannot post any audio/video samples of this clip, I did make a large batch of video stills for everyone to peruse. Please DO NOT write in to beg for copies of this film. I was given this one sample for review purposes only. I will delete any such requests that I receive, so don't bother trying. I am happy to let everyone know what's on the horizon, but it's not my policy to distribute these recordings - period.

However, I am told that an audio CD version of the show will be released on November 19th through Dust An' Dreams (www.dnd-rock.com) in Japan. The DVD version is slated for release in mid-December.

Pictures from the Camden date are available here.
