Live at Last is the famous unauthorized Black Sabbath live album from the 'old days' of the band. I've got to say, however, that it is perhaps the weakest of all Sabbath material I've ever listened to: and this coming from a die-hard fan of both Sabbath and Heaven and Hell.

Sweet Leaf" is perhaps the lowest point on this album
