(jamroom notes) These are all the original files. I have added this info file. Great to see Under The Sun and Wheels Of Confusion on this recording. The taper conserved his tape by pausing between songs. Good show though. Luciferburns indicated that the taper was not from the Dayton area and was hoping to trace the master reels for a transfer at some point in the future. Good luck mate!

(Markum7 notes) Picked this up from a trader in Dayton who managed to locate the master and received a 1st gen copy. I traded this at the time when tape was how trades were done, so my copy is 2nd gen. Some tape stops/starts and other small glitches, but overall not bad quality for 1972.

(sabbathlive (Rob Dwyer) notes) Very good, but somewhat flawed audience recording. There are some cuts between songs (presumably done by the taper during the show) and during the intro for "Iron Man". Earlier copies of this show that I owned were very muted and muddy sounding. But after hearing a digital clone of the master tape, I am revising my previous judgment of the Dayton '72 show (which was 'good at best'). There is much more treble in the original recording than I had been able to hear in the higher generation dubs. In fact, the only instrument that seemed a bit low in the mix was the bass. Ozzy's vocals are clear, Tony's guitar rings through and Bill's drums are all right there in the mix.

Sabbath is playing well here at the beginning of their U.S. tour to promote VOLUME 4. Dayton '72 contains the earliest recorded live versions of "Under The Sun" and "Wheels Of Confusion" currently in circulation. "Under The Sun" is performed here at a brisker tempo than the studio version. Iommi's live arrangement of his multi-tracked guitar solo is well executed, leaving us all to wonder WHY they didn't play this song at more shows? Also, Dayton '72 features the ONLY complete live version of "Wheels Of Confusion" out there, as opposed to the cut version which is on the Hollywood Bowl 9/15/72 tape.
