Shame on you Ozzy and Sharon! god knows i love ozzy for his musical stature, but this remake/remix is a terrible mistake.
For money, Drums and bass tracks were re-recorded with ozzy's actual band, susbstituting Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake's tracks , both ex Uriah Heep rythm section, nothing less. These guys sued ozzy for not giving them royalties on this cd, and it has been a years long legal trail. I believe Ozzy is rich enough and should give them their royalties.
Daisley and Kerslake's sound is far superior in technique, uniqueness, and licks . Just listen to the original lp's or the first two editions of this cd! they are an amazing rythm section. Also, producer Max' norman's production was butchered on this remake/remixed frankenstein.
This brutal massacre has also been completed on Ozzy's second solo gem, and the last studio album with Randy roads: Diary of a madman.
Doesn ozzy say that Randy is his great beloved friend? this remake is like taking a leak on Randy roads' grave! . Find and buy the first 2 editions of this cd cause they will dissapear from stores for good.
