Rare Randy Rhoads Era Ozzy Osbourne Video Released

05/03/2011
.
The Ozzy camp has released some previously unreleased live footage of guitar great Randy Rhoads from the Palladium in New York City from 1981. The footage is as part of the run-up to the 30th anniversary reissues of his iconic first two solo albums and part of DVD documentary that is part of box set version of the reissues.

hennemusic has this background on why these reissues are so important: On May 31, the musical legacy of Ozzy Osbourne is finally getting cleaned up. The release of reissues of Ozzy's first two solo albums, "Blizzard Of Ozz" (1980) and "Diary Of A Madman" (1981) is long overdue, given the antics of Sharon Osbourne.

The legacy of these albums was scarred in 2002 when Sharon let her emotions get the better of her during legal issues with former Ozzy bandmates Bob Daisley (bass) and Lee Kerslake (drums). Sharon tried to erase Bob and Lee's contributions by re-recording the bass and drum parts on these records with Ozzy's then-current band members, Robert Trujillo (now with Metallica) and drummer Mike Bordin. The original versions of the albums disappeared.

Sharon said in the 2002 press release, saying "Ozzy wanted to remove them [Bob and Lee] from these recordings." In an interview with Classic Rock last summer, Ozzy busted Sharon publicly on this, letting fans know it wasn't his idea, he didn't approve of it and that he wanted the originals reissued.
