"It's finally released in NTSC form and well worth the wait.For those of you who know the full background of this band and the reasons for
their formation,I'll spare you the details. For those who don't, check out The official Living Loud website or The official Bob Daisley web
site for more info. This live debut show filmed in a club in Australlia was performed the same night Steve Morse and Don Airey had just come off stage from performing a deep purple show nearby.
Lee Kerslake had just flown in from London not too many hours earlier as well. You would never know it judging by the energy, enthusiasm and proffesionalism put into this show. It's really hard to believe that the guys only played and wrote together for three weeks! Jimmy Barnes may not be your taste in vocals but there is no denying that the man can deliver loud and in key. Sound quality is excellent as well as the visual. The extras are a nice bonus. All in all a very fine tribute to Mr.Randy Rhoads, Bob Daisley and the classics
they contributed to the origional Blizzard of Ozz. Buy this dvd. It's a steal at this price and will provide many hours of enjoyment of Great good old hard Rock and roll the way it should be played. Live and Loud!!"
Randy Rhoads fans beware!

"When I saw this DVD, I was stoked! The Blizzard of Ozz - Airey, Daisley, & Kerslake - reunited! The track listing sealed the deal; half the tunes on this DVD are from Rhoads-era Ozzy! "Tonight", "Over the Mountain", "Mr. Crowley", etc...and with guitar legend STEVE MORSE on guitar, how can you go wrong!?
Well, imagine that Morse doesn't even attempt to execute the songs as they were recorded, just plays along as though he's never heard Randy Rhoads. That's exactly what happens here. Daisley, Kerslake, & Airey are in fine form, true to their original parts. However, beloved signature Randy riffs are completely left out, often replaced by a single sustained chord! Rather than believe that Steve Morse has an ego and refused to learn someone else's parts ('cause he doesn't even come CLOSE!) I must believe that the evil, terrible, Sharon must have something to do with this fiasco (we all know the unprecedented crimes against music she is responsible for, huh?). These songs without the guitar elements that made them famous simply disappoint. No offense to Daisley and co., their contributions to the classic first two Ozzy albums are priceless, but this performance is not what I expected AT ALL...
