AllMusic Review by

Talk of the Devil is the English title of Ozzy's 1982 live double-album, Speak of the Devil. In fulfilling his contractual obligation to deliver a live album, Osbourne decided that it would be a disservice to the memory of Randy Rhoads to perform songs from the Blizzard of Ozz band's repertoire, so he delivered this album instead, which consists entirely of newly recorded versions of Black Sabbath numbers with Night Ranger's Brad Gillis on guitar. It's not bad, but it's not really necessary either, except for diehard Ozzy and Sabbath fans.
