Post "Blizzard" and "Diary" reissued AGAIN ???
On May 31, music fans will have their first taste of reissues from rock icon OZZY OSBOURNE's catalog of work with the releases of two albums which form the cornerstone of Ozzy Osbourne's career as a solo artist: "Blizzard Of Ozz" and "Diary Of A Madman" (Epic Records/Legacy Recordings). Long revered by rock fans around the world, these two albums created a template for hard rock in the 1980s and beyond as they were marked by the ground-breaking and historic union of Ozzy and the late guitar hero Randy Rhoads. These definitive versions of 1980's "Blizzard Of Ozz" (with previously unreleased bonus tracks) and 1981's "Diary Of A Madman" are available individually on vinyl or CD, or together in a deluxe collector's box. All versions were restored and remastered from the original analog sources by George Marino.

The 30th-anniversary edition of "Blizzard Of Ozz" CD includes the original album in its entirety, restored and remastered for this edition, with bonus tracks, while the new legacy edition of "Diary Of A Madman" includes the original album in its entirety, restored and remastered for this edition, with a bonus second CD of previously unreleased live performances featuring Ozzy Osbourne and Randy Rhoads with rhythm section Rudy Sarzo (bass) and Tommy Aldridge (drums). A single-disc version of the remastered "Diary Of A Madman" will also be available.

For serious fans and collectors, the limited edition 30th-anniversary deluxe boxed set houses the restored and remastered vinyl and CD editions of "Blizzard Of Ozz" and "Diary Of A Madman", the "Ozzy Live" compact disc. Beyond the music, the box set is highlighted by a variety of exclusives including an expansive 100-page coffee table book, a two-sided wall-size poster, a precise and detailed full-size replica of Ozzy's iconic gold cross that he has worn for 30 years, and "Thirty Years After The Blizzard" DVD.

This new "Thirty Years After The Blizzard" DVD chronicles Ozzy's years with Randy Rhoads features previously unseen footage of Ozzy and Randy filmed in 1981 and 1982; it incorporates rare archival photos and films; along with new and revelatory interviews with Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, Lemmy (MOTÖRHEAD), Steve Vai, Nikki Sixx, Rob Halford, Zakk Wylde, Bill Ward and more. The DVD also contains over 70 minutes of additional rare live performances and interviews; included is the premiere of more than 30 minutes of newly-discovered never-bootlegged footage of Ozzy and Randy from the "Blizzard Of Ozz" tour shot from the front of the stage at New York's fabled Palladium on May 2, 1981. This new feature is a must-see for aficionados of Ozzy's epic release "Blizzard Of Ozz" and its pivotal effect on rock and roll history.

How many friggin times is Sharon gonna bleed the fans dry on these two albums? :evil:

So when they say reissue of the "ORIGINAL" recordings, does this mean Lee Kerslake and Bob Daisley are on them???

So by leaving them in this time I'm assuming her lawyers have obviously found a way to evade the whole previous "royalty suit"....

How do I say this even semi-politely...?

Sharon Osbourne straps on a strap-on dildo and bends her husband over.

I'm sorry, but I am just beyond exasperated.

I have copies of those albums that I'm pretty sure have the original bassist and drummer.

On cassette.

I wonder why they left off "You Said It All"?

And why didn't they include the Live EP with Mr. Crowley, Suicide Solution, and You Said It All?

I have it on LP and picture disc but would like to have to good copy on CD.

I may go ahead and spring for the Collectors set. :shock:

I need the DVD. :lol:

No that's not the never seen before footage they are talking about. That's from a local television music show in Rochester, New York called After Hours back in 1981.
