From Wikipedia:

Speak of the Devil is a live album by Ozzy Osbourne. It was released on November 27, 1982.

This release was named Talk of the Devil in the UK. This live concert featuring only Black Sabbath covers was recorded at The Ritz in New York on the 26th and 27th of September 1982, and featured Night Ranger guitarist Brad Gillis, who had stepped in for the recently deceased Randy Rhoads. The album was originally intended as a contemporary document of Ozzy's solo live set, but was quickly altered to include entirely Sabbath covers as a riposte to the then current Sabbath's imminent live offering Live Evil with Ozzy's replacement Ronnie James Dio on vocals.
