Sabotage and Never Say Die HAVE been remastered, along with the rest up until Eternal Idol, but the Ozzy records beyond the first three did not get the "deluxe" treatment (i.e, a bonus disc). Born Again got the deluxe treatment because of the b-sides and the widely circulated demos that contained a bonus track (The Fallen). [The sound quality on the demos was actually better than the final warner bros release! Unfortunately Iommi couldn't find the original masters to properly remix the album].

The likely reason for this was that they didn't have any b-sides, unused demos, or compelling lives shows [the Asbury Park live show from 1975 has already been released]. Of course, they could release demos with Dave Walker but that's not going to happen. Incidentally, I don't think the sound quality of the remastered Never Say Die and Sabotage is any good - you're best keeping the original warner discs.

The Tony Martin years at IRS are due the deluxe treatment, however. When that gets done is another story [likely after the record and tour]. Those records had quite a few killer b-sides - What's the Use, Loser Gets it All, etc. - so this has potential. Last word is that Forbidden will also be completely re-mixed.
