Ozzy Osbourne Unleashes Four R

- advertisement -
On March 26th, Epic Records will release “expanded edition” reissues of four classic Ozzy Osbourne albums, Blizzard of Ozz (1980), Diary of a Madman (1981), Tribute (1987), and No More Tears (1991). The reissues have been digitally re-mastered from the original master tapes for the ultimate sound. Each CD will come with the original cover art restored complete with all original issue information featured and never-before-seen photos. In addition, each one comes with in-depth liner notes from Kerrang! editor-in-chief Phil Alexander and come choice bonus tracks! On Blizzard Of Ozz you get “You Lookin' At Me Lookin' At You” (from UK version of the album) and the live track “You Said It All” (from UK B-side of the "Mr. Crowley" single). Diary Of A Madman features alive version of “I Don't Know” (taken from B-Side of "Flying High Again" single, while Tribute includes a previously unreleased single edit of “No Bone Movies.” No more Tears features two studio b-sides, “Don't Blame Me” and “Party With The Animals.”

In related news, Launch.com has reported that Ozzy will not be participating in the Los Angeles concerts on February 26 to help raise funds for the Recording Artists Coalition (RAC). Ozzy had been previously announced on a bill that included Korn and Rob Zombie but the whole show has reportedly been scrapped. A spokesperson for the RAC said that the participation of those acts was mentioned only as part of a "preliminary schedule" earlier in the planning.

The rest of the concerts for the RAC will continue on as scheduled though and features a stellar lineup of acts: Beck, Vedder, and Ness will co-headline a show at the Wiltern Theater; The Eagles, Billy Joel, Sheryl Crow, and Stevie Nicks at the Forum; No Doubt, Offspring, and Weezer at the Long Beach Arena; and country headliners Dixie Chicks, Dwight Yoakam, Trisha Yearwood, and Emmylou Harris at Universal Amphitheater. Launch also reports that Elton John backed out due to a tight tour schedule.

Proceeds from the shows will go to the RAC's legislative and lobbying efforts to change the way the record business operates, methods that some performers have called "unconscionable." Among the issues the group wants addressed at both the local and national level are better copyright protection, punitive accounting and auditing practices, missed payments for health care and pension funds, free agency for performers, and contract length, as recording artists are currently held to deals for longer than is legal for other workers.
