TMD has learned that Ozzy’s upcoming 30th-anniversary editions of his first two solo albums, 1980’s “Blizzard Of Ozz” and 1981’s “Diary Of A Madman”, with their original drum and bass tracks restored (unlike the 2002 reissues of these albums, which saw the replacement of the original bass and drum tracks by Osbourne’s then-drummer Mike Bordin and -bassist Robert Trujillo) have been apparently postponed, this according to CD Japan.
Ozzy’s wife/manager Sharon Osbourne has stated for the record previously that the reissues would be released on the market Thanksgiving/2010 but it’s looking like they won’t be happening anytime soon.
