The reissues of OZZY OSBOURNE‘s classic first two solo albums, 1980’s “Blizzard Of Ozz” and 1981’s “Diary Of A Madman”, sold around 6,000 copies each in the United States in their first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. They arrived on May 31 in definitive editions that restore and remaster the original recordings. Both were made available separately or as part of a deluxe box set that features both albums on CD and vinyl, a 100-page coffee table book, a documentary on DVD and a “full-size detailed replica of Ozzy‘s iconic cross.”
Both albums come with previously unreleased bonus tracks and have been restored and remastered from the original analog recordings.
The albums restore the bass and drum tracks played respectively by Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake, which were controversially removed for a 2002 reissue by Ozzy‘s wife and manager Sharon over a royalties dispute.
The “Blizzard Of Ozz” reissue comes with three bonus studio tracks, including an alternate version of “Goodbye To Romance” and a song never released in the U.S. called “You Looking At Me, Looking At You”.
The “Diary” reissue comes with a bonus CD of live performances captured on Ozzy’s “Blizzard Of Ozz” tour.
The documentary, “30 Years After The Blizzard”, chronicles Ozzy‘s early solo years and features previously unseen footage of him and Rhoads filmed in 1981 and 1982, along with rare archival photos and films, new interviews, and more than 70 minutes of additional live performances and interviews.
