The new remasters feature the ORIGINAL tracks with Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake on bass and drums, respectively. And if you look on the back of the "Blizzard of Ozz" CD you'll see the original live photograph of Bob Daisley, Ozzy and Randy Rhoads (drummer Lee Kerslake is in the background, obscured by Ozzy in the foreground) which was on the original LP.

Have only picked up "Blizzard of Ozz" so far, but I will pick up the "Diary of a Madman" set too. Can't pass up an opportunity to have the best sounding versions of these two classic albums.

A couple issues, though:

Why not include the song "You Said It All" on the Blizzard disc? They included "You Looking at Me, Looking at You", but not the other widely unknown Rhoads song from that era. And it was a corker too, recorded on the Blizzard of Ozz UK tour. Which brings me to another thing...

Why does the Diary disc contain a concert touted as being from the Blizzard of Ozz tour? It's my understanding that the band recorded Blizzard, did a UK tour with Motorhead, returned to the studio to record Diary, Daisley & Kerslake were sacked, and then Ozzy did his first US tour with Tommy Aldridge & Rudy Sarzo in their place. So it would be the Diary tour. Who knows, maybe they called it the Blizzard Of Ozz tour anyway...?
