Ozzy ‘Speak Of The Devil’ DVD out now
A rare Ozzy Osbourne release is getting the full restored/remastered DTS/5.1 Surround treatment: Speak Of The Devil, which features Brad Gillis on guitar. It’s a rare look at a time when Ozzy was still flying high (pun intended) on the success of his first two solo albums, but was also reeling from the tragic death of Randy Rhoads. Here’s the press release:
Eagle Rock Entertainment releases Speak Of The Devil on DVD by Ozzy Osbourne in North America.
This show was filmed at Irvine Meadows, California on June 12, 1982 as part of the delayed continuation of the “Diary Of A Madman” tour following the tragic death of Randy Rhoads a few months earlier. The audio has been digitally restored and remastered and is now available in DTS and Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound for the first time. Speak Of The Devil includes the classics “Mr Crowley” “Over The Mountain” “Crazy Train” “Flying High Again” “Iron Man” “Paranoid” “Goodbye To Romance” and many more.
The concert is a perfect snapshot of Ozzy Osbourne’s live performances in the eighties with dramatic staging and masses of energy with a setlist based around his first two solo albums and a few Black Sabbath classics. The line-up for this show features Ozzy Osbourne (vocals); Don Airey (keyboards); Tommy Aldridge (drums); Brad Gillis (guitar) and Rudy Sarzo (bass).
Ozzy has always been one of heavy metal’s great frontmen and, despite the difficult circumstances, the show presented on Speak of the Devil captures him at his absolute best.
