Ultra-Rare OZZY OSBOURNE Recording DetailedSeptember 9, 2004
David Tangye, Ozzy Osbourne's assistant during the BLACK SABBATH years, recently gave OZZY fan site Ozzyhead.com the following information regarding an ultra-rare Osbourne studio recording made nearly three decades ago: "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" was a song recorded in 1975 featuring Ozzy on backing vocals. It was recorded on an independent label called Birmingham Free Music. It was arranged by a singer/songwriter named Chris Sedgwick. He was a close friend of Ozzy's back in 1975 at the time of the recording. There were a lot of local musicians involved in two tracks that were put down. The "B" side was called "Have You Ever Been Loved". There were only 100 copies pressed, the majority of which were accidentally destroyed by a fire. Some of the 45s were distributed to the local pubs in Birmingham, and were played in the jukeboxes. Anyone who has a copy of this recording is surely sitting on the ultimate rarity.
