The week of May 30th sees the re-release of two albums which form the cornerstone of Ozzy’s career as a solo artist: "Blizzard of Ozz" and "Diary of a Madman."

These definitive versions of 1980's "Blizzard of Ozz" (with previously unreleased bonus tracks) and 1981's "Diary of a Madman" will be available individually on vinyl or CD, or together in a limited edition 30th Anniversary deluxe collector's box set.

The box set containing a 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 the "Thirty Years After The Blizzard" DVD – which chronicles Ozzy’s years with Randy Rhoads and features previously unseen performance footage filmed in 1981 and 1982. All versions have been restored and remastered from the original analog sources by George Marino.

Hopefully these versions include Kerslake@ Daisley! Looks like a potentially attractive package. Although I'm not sure how many more times I can buy these two classics! Originally cassette;CD versions;and then remastered CD version. Extras might entice me to check it out though
