An upgrade board of a valuable Randy Rose era classic sound source appears. This work was recorded “Uniondale Show on August 14, 1981”. It is an audience album containing “One piece of BLIZZARD OF OZZ TOUR 1980-1981”.
In the Randy era, it is difficult to grasp a little bit, for example because there are member changes during each tour, due to the shortness of the two tours. Because it is a good opportunity, let’s organize it here easily.

“September 12” BLIZZARD OF OZZ “released”
· September – November 1980: UK # 1 (34 performances)
“March 1981 completed” DIARY OF A MADMAN ”
= Rhythm corps substitution =
· April – July 1981: North America # 1 (59 shows)
· August 1, 1981: UK # 2 (HM HOLOCAUST)
· August – September 1981: North America # 2 (34 performances) ← ★ Coco ★

“November 7″ DIARY OF A MADMAN released ”
· November 1981: Germany (7 performances)
· November – December 1981: UK # 3 (3 performances)
= Replacement of keyboard =
December 1981 – March 1982: North America # 3 (46 performances)
“March 19 Randy Rose died”

Over all, 184 performances. This is the whole of the live activity that we did at Ozzy & Randy. Although it is divided into “BLIZZARD OF OZZ TOUR” and “DIARY OF A MADMAN TOUR” at the release of “DIARY OF A MADMAN”, the union dale performance of this work is the last term of “BLIZZARD OF OZZ TOUR” # 2 “10 live album live album. Rhythm corps is replaced by Rudy Saaso / Tommy Aldridge while the keyboard is Lindsay Bridgewater.
This show has long been known for recording, and has also developed several episodes. This work is not its copy or remaster. The topic “KRW – CO” has recently been announced and it is a superb item digitized from 1st Genecassette. In fact, the sound of this work is a wonderful audience sound that updates the record high. It is not a type called “just like a soundboard”, but freshness and natural sounds that are never before are beautiful. Ozzy and Randy are clear, which is crucial. That unique guitar sound dances vividly and freshly in detail.
Rather, this work may be easier to understand by arranging it with other recordings. When saying “North America # 2”, the 5th show, the Providence performance “HOWLLING BLIZZARD (a part of Shades 340)” and the 6th show South Fallsburg performance “MUSIC MOUNTAIN 1981 (Zodiac 083)” is a large classic However, due to this upgrade, Union Dale Performance is also included. It is a sound that is suitable for calling “3 great sound sources”. Strictly one of the three Providence performances is missing one head, but this work is equal to the South Falls performances. Rather, the audience is similar to the balance of music / singing voice, it is a sound that reminds me of that masterpiece.
A wonderful thing of the show drawn with that quality … …. Of course, although the contents are also very similar because the two works are close to the days, it is nice to have recorded all the songs to “Children Of The Grave” and “Paranoid” that ended in the middle of “MUSIC MOUNTAIN 1981” . Of course there is also a cut by cassette change, but it is almost simultaneous with the end of “Steal Away (The Night)”. And the recording restart is the entrance of the drum solo. In other words, it is only a word that Ozzy shouts “We love you all, Mr. Tommy Aldridge on drums !!” that is being cut. While this work sounds comparable to “MUSIC MOUNTAIN 1981”, it is above the luck of recording. It is one loved by the goddess.

A record of precious Randy era one by one. It is a masterpiece of Real Audience which is drawn with one of the best Genes · Sounds among them. A number of successor guitarists play and famous songs Ozzie sings thousands of times. However, this radiance can only be Randy himself. A phrase which is transient and beautiful and seems to be broken if you touch it. We will contain it in a press CD that will not be lost forever and will deliver it to you.
貴重なランディ・ローズ時代の定番音源のアップグレード盤が登場です。本作が録音されたのは「1981年8月14日ユニオンデール公演」。“BLIZZARD OF OZZ TOUR 1980-1981”の一幕を収めたオーディエンス・アルバムです。

《9月12日『BLIZZARD OF OZZ』発売》
《1981年3月『DIARY OF A MADMAN』完成》
・1981年8月1日:英国#2(HM HOLOCAUST)
・1981年8月-9月:北米#2(34公演) ←★ココ★

《11月7日『DIARY OF A MADMAN』発売》

以上、全184公演。これがオジー&ランディで行ったライヴ活動の全容です。『DIARY OF A MADMAN』のリリースを境に“BLIZZARD OF OZZ TOUR”と“DIARY OF A MADMAN TOUR”に分かれるわけですが、本作のユニオンデール公演は“BLIZZARD OF OZZ TOUR”の最後期にあたる「北米#2」の10公演目のライヴアルバム。リズム隊はルディ・サーゾ/トミー・アルドリッジに交代しつつ、キーボードはリンジー・ブリッジウォーター-です。
むしろ、本作は他録音と並べた方が分かりやすいかも知れません。この「北米#2」と言うと、5公演目プロヴィデンス公演『HOWLLING BLIZZARD(Shades 340の一部)』や6公演目サウス・フォールズバーグ公演『MUSIC MOUNTAIN 1981(Zodiac 083)』が大定番となっていますが、今回のアップグレードによりユニオンデール公演も仲間入り。“3大音源”と呼ぶに相応しいサウンドになっています。厳密にはプロヴィデンス公演が3本の中でも頭1つ抜けておりますが、本作はサウス・フォールズ公演とは互角。むしろ、オーディエンスはと楽音/歌声のバランスも似ており、あの傑作を思い起こさせるサウンドなのです。
そのクオリティで描かれるショウの素晴らしい事……。もちろん、上記2作と日も近いために内容も酷似しておりますが、『MUSIC MOUNTAIN 1981』では途中で終わっていた「Children Of The Grave」や「Paranoid」まで全曲収録しているのが嬉しい。もちろん、カセット・チェンジによるカットもあるのですが、それが「Steal Away (The Night)」の終了とほぼ同時。そして、録音再開はドラムソロの入り口。つまり、カットされているのはオジーが叫ぶ一言「We love you all, Mr.Tommy Aldridge on drums!!」だけなのです。本作は『MUSIC MOUNTAIN 1981』に匹敵するサウンドながら、録音の運では上。女神に愛された1本なのです。
