The BARK CD is remixed & partially re-recorded cuz Sharon Osborne wants to screw the original musicians out of their royalties! They asked for the $$ that they were owed for back royalties and when they got nowhere, they threatened to sue. Sharon and the Osbourne organization countered by erasing their tracks and having Ozzy's then-current bassist and drummer re-record those parts. Nice huh? And she wonders why so many people hate her guts...

I thought that was only on Blizzard and Diary. Because that was Lee Kerslake and Bob Daisley that they were screwing over. I know Bob played on Bark but Lee didn't. They just recently recorded most of the songs off of Blizzard on their project 'Living Loud" project with Steve Morse and Don Airey from Deep Purple.

Sounds like you know more about it than I do H&H... I remember hearing the story about Lee and Bob (sounds like a British comedy team doesn't it?) but couldn't remember off the top of my head which CDs were re-dubbed, I could be wrong (I sometimes am... just not often, heh heh)

Bob has always hated the fact that Randy gets all the credit for helping Ozzy jump start his solo career, and he has been quoted as saying that Ozzy didn't write any of the songs on the first two albums. He claims that he wrote the lyrics and the melody lines. People don't realize that Bob had been in Rainbow and Lee had been in Uriah Heep ( and still is ) for a long time. Instead it's like those two guys never existed. As soon as Sharon had the chance in came Rudy Sarzo and Tommy Aldridge and out went the old English guys.

I had no idea the '02 Bark was tweaked, but I found a review on Amazon that was pretty in depth about it:

 

Remix of CD is cohesive and modern,but is it what fans want?, February 21, 2003

Reviewer: Bill M. "bill_m1" (MA, USA) - See all my reviews

 

The 2002 remastered "Bark at the Moon" CD is actually more of a remix than a remaster. Needless to say, a side by side comparison will show that the music itself (not just the tonal quality) sounds different from all previous releases of this album. If you're a young fan who's brand new to Ozzy's music and thus have never really heard the "Bark at the Moon" album, you might like this somewhat modern-sounding remix. Otherwise, if you're a long-time fan who knows the original album inside and out, you may be totally repulsed by the difference in the CD's music.

 

Ozzy re-re-released his first two solo albums on CD in 2002, but without any mention on the outside packaging that they were actually RE-RECORDINGS done with different musicians! In an attempt to get out of paying royalties to the musicians who played on the original album, Ozzy had the original bass and drum tracks re-recorded by his current band mates. (Quite an insulting way to treat the remaining band who not only made the late Randy Rhodes' a legend, but also helped bring Ozzy out of Black Sabbath's shadow -- if not reverse that situation entirely.)

 

The 2002 "Bark at the Moon" CD is essentially a remix of the 1983 original, not a re-recording. But you'd have no way of knowing from reading the outside packaging or even the CD booklet. In and of itself, the remixed album admittedly sounds rather good in places. Although in a few other places it sounds like Ozzy's singing behind a wall (which is not an uncommon side effect found on badly produced metal albums). Overall the CD music is very cohesive sounding, unlike what you get when you, oh say, try to re-record drums. Here there's a little more boominess, different guitar and drum fills, more rhythm guitar and less keyboards. It's now a somewhat modern-sounding metal album.

 

But is this what people expect when they buy a "remaster"? For the long-time Ozzy fans: please be aware that this simply isn't the same "Bark at the Moon" you bought in the 80s! If, like me, you've become very familiar with "Bark at the Moon" after years of listening, then listening to the remixed album might come as a shock. Not that it's been remixed as a dance album or anything extreme like that, but gone are all those little fills and solos your ears have come to learn. The bell tolling at the start of "Center of Eternity" sounds like it's been shifted down an octave, like somebody throwing a rock at a pot of water.

 

If you still need a replacement for your scratchy vinyl or warbled cassette copy of "Bark At The Moon", try to get the 1995 remaster instead. It will sound like what a remastered CD should sound like: just as you remembered it musically, but with superior audio quality.

They are oop but still fairly common, you should be able to find one pretty cheap with little or no problem.

Easy to get and fairly cheap - got mine from Amazon for $5 as I only had the original vinyl and the new 2002 Remixed version. I also picked up the '95 Remaster of 'Diary Of A Madman', as again I only had the vinyl and the Re-recorded 2002 CD version!!!

 

There is quite a difference in places between the 2 'Bark' releases when you play them back to back!!!!

    • "Local News" doesn't even exist anymore.Right out of the gate they slam you with the Covid numbers...the body count...a clusterf__k of  negativity..maybe a little time for weather and sports and then newscast DONE! On radio - same thing  every half hour: rinse-wash-repeat.National / global depression,drug use,suicide rates still climbing....
    • As if we need something else to worry about but with overpopulation and a rapidly changing world due to climate issues..... In 2009, a patient in Japan developed a new fungal infection on their ear. The highly transmissible Candida auris fungus had been previously unknown to science (and resistant to the drugs available to treat it), but within a few years, cases started emerging in Venezuela, Iran, Russia, and South Africa. Scientists assumed that the spread was due to human travel, but when they sequenced the cases, they were surprised to find that these strains weren't closely related at all. Instead, scientists were seeing multiple, independent infections of an unknown fungal disease, emerging around the world, all at the same time. About a third of people infected with Candida auris die from the infection within 30 days, and there have now been thousands of cases in 47 countries. Some scientists think this sudden boom in global cases is a harbinger of things to come.
    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
    • Erik sounds good but song does little for me.  Really don't like the chorus...if you can even call that a chorus.
    • Got my refund today, fucking stupid, I was looking forward to this, oh well Loudness in March, havent seen them since 82, I was 5, my very first concert, super stoked for that.
