MADMAN : AN EXPLANATION
This page is in part for self reference, to keep track of my ‘Diary of a Madman’ discography. It is also to share with people who also collect the album and it is to give people who enjoy my own music an insight my record collecting habits.

It is in no way an exaggeration to say that Ozzy Osbourne’s second album ‘Diary of a Madman’ changed my life. When the album first came out in 1981 I was a lonely and very shy 12 year old. I was a C- or D+ student, at very best academically average, a daydreamer who stared out of the window during class, with few friends at school or socially. Consequently I immersed myself in music, voices and stereo sounds that magically vibrated through a needle and fed into the speakers, this was and still is my favourite kind of company.

Me – Circa 1981

I already had the first Ozzy Osbourne album ‘Blizzard of Ozz’ and was busy cultivating a collection of Black Sabbath records along with an ever growing collection of hard rock and NWOBHM discs. But ‘Diary of a Madman’ was the very first record that I was old enough to be there for at its virgin birth, for that all important day of release. It was the first record that I was anticipating every day since its release date was announced, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I am sure every ardent record collector would relate to this and agree that there is no greater feeling than rushing to the record shop to pick up a crisp, shiny, new L. P. on the day of its delivery.

With one foot still in firmly in the world of childhood and the other foot on the first slippery steps to becoming a teenager ‘Diary of a Madman’ resonated with me. The cover was instantly satisfying with it’s eldritch cobwebs, satanic overtones, inverted cross, blood and dead animals. My childish interpretation of the sleeve was that it represented a truly compelling evil, a hermetically sealed world of diabolic conjuring’s and evil machinations. In some way I felt as if I were opening a gateway to a secretive and exclusive world of demonism, it made me feel as if I belonged.

The magical and strange alchemical text on the inner sleeve added to this sense of other worldly occultism and devil worship. I quickly discovered that the text was written in what is called the ‘Theban Alphabet’ and I set about translating those abstract shapes into English. The inner sleeve sadly said nothing more than ‘The Ozzy Osbourne Band’.

An interview with the sleeve’s designer Steve Joule aka Krusher can be found here : INTERVIEW

I loved the music on the album. It spoke of hallucinogenic journeys on ‘Over the Mountain’, and then there was the strange indefinable, quizzical title S.A.T.O (which I found out later to stand for Sharon.Adrian.Thelma.Ozzy. because Sharon at the time had a boyfriend called Adrian, and Ozzy’s current wife at the time was Thelma). Then there was ‘lone man against the world’ anthems like ‘You Can’t Kill Rock and Roll’ and ‘Believer’ with such lines as ‘You’ve got to believe in yourself or no one will believe in you’. The words directly spoke to me, it was myself, Ozzy and Rock n’ Roll against the world. Everything a certain type of child of my age at the time loves, anarchy, escapism, flamboyance and fantasy.

As I grew up and the ‘know-it-all’ late teenage years manifested themselves I began to view ‘Diary of a Madman’ as nothing more than mere showmanship and Hollywood horror, which it is of course. Its cover art is arguably contrived and engineered, utilising a comic strip font and ‘shock’ horror, cynically designed to sell a commodity to young men. But now that doesn’t really matter as ‘Diary of a Madman’ meant and still does mean a great deal to me. The music is amazing! At the time Randy Rhoads’ innovative guitar style modernised heavy rock. The cover is hilarious and of course tongue-in-cheek and it was the first record that I truly loved and cherished. It taught me about art and design, record collecting and investing time and effort into researching and learning about every facet of objects of your passion. ‘Diary of a Madman’ also of course inspired me to make my own music. With lyrics that convey a message of self reliance along with notions that one should reject regular society and convention, it also instilled a once timid kid with a much needed sense of independence and autonomy. ‘Diary of a Madman’ like all great records is nostalgic, as with anyone who listens to their favourite records of yesteryear it has become a key which has unlocked faint memories and reflections.

MADMAN : VINYL
In 2011 the 30th anniversary edition of ‘Diary of a Madman’ was announced, of course I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy of this new and expanded edition of the release. Much like 30 years back I impatiently longed for the day that this plush new deluxe version would arrive. I was genuinely excited to wait for the box to be delivered. It ignited a passion and excitement in me similar to that of being 12 again.

Throughout 2011 I began to collect ALL the vinyl versions of ‘Diary of a Madman’ I could find. I chose only the vinyl versions as they are more tactile, more tangible than a CD or cassette tape. The process of manufacturing a record is far more involved than that of any other format. It takes pressing plants, cutting instruments, engraved metal plates and huge machines. In 1981 there would have been pressing plants all over the world, each with their own set of plates of ‘Diary of a Madman’.

Essentially I see vinyl as the most ‘romantic’ of formats, there is a physicality of a 12″ record, the needle cuts into a groove, the vinyl is being worn away, fragile and eroding with each use. In a day of file sharing and the digital dissemination of music, the instant and easy access of even the most obscure of recordings is at anyone’s fingertips . To find these actual records is a little more investigative and challenging than merely downloading all the tracks. Then there is the waiting process, waiting for the disc to arrive in the post and the anticipation of seeing the disc for the first time. There is no instant delivery in searching for physical goods, it takes time and patience. I also see the vinyl LP as the most authentic archival format. Also most if not all the records I have acquired are previously owned giving a human element, who owned these records? who touched these records? who cared (or NOT) for these objects?

I have been researching all the versions I can find through the internet and e-mailing record stores worldwide. Using Discogs as a starting place I discovered many versions, BUT there are far more versions in existence than are listed on Discogs, and many more variations than I could have anticipated.

‘Diary of a Madman’ is not a rare record and even the first editions from most of the territories where the record was initially pressed can be found at affordable or cheap prices. There are of course exceptions and some very rare versions. To discover how many variations of the record exist is pretty hard, maybe impossible to determine, there must be test pressings and acetates that I will never find. Every time I look on ebay or search the internet a new version seems to appear. I am sure the search to find every possible variable will be a life long passion.

Knoxville Civic Coliseum – Photograph by Matthew Amundsen – 2013

Randy Rhoads played his last show on Thursday, March 18, 1982 at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum. The next day, the band was heading to a festival in Orlando, Florida. After driving much of the night, they stopped on the property belonging to Jerry Calhoun, owner of Florida Coach, in Leesburg, Florida. On the Calhoun property there was an airstrip with small helicopters and planes. Ex-commercial pilot and tour bus driver, Andrew Aycock, took a small plane on a joyride with Rhoads and make-up artist Rachel Youngblood aboard. During the second flight, attempts were made to ‘buzz’ the tour bus, where the other band members were sleeping. Aycock succeeded in making two close passes, but botched the third attempt. The left wing clipped the back side of the tour bus, tearing the fiberglass roof and sending the plane spiraling out of control. The plane severed the top of a pine tree and crashed into the garage of a nearby mansion, bursting into flames. Rhoads was killed instantly, as were Aycock (36) and Youngblood (58). All three bodies were burned beyond recognition, and were identified by dental records and Rhoads’ jewelry.

It was later revealed in an autopsy that Aycock’s system showed traces of cocaine at the time. Rhoads’ toxicology test revealed only nicotine, he was a very heavy smoker. The NTSB investigation determined that Aycock’s medical certificate had expired and that his biennial flight review, required for all pilots, was overdue. In Ozzy Osbourne’s autobiography, ‘I Am Ozzy’, he writes that the night of Rhoads’ death, he told his wife, Sharon: “I don’t think I want to be a rock’n’roller any more”. Rhoads’ funeral was held at the First Lutheran Church in Burbank, California. He is interred at Mountain View Cemetery in San Bernardino, California, where his grandparents are also buried.


2002 RE-ISSUE CONTROVERSY
The 2002 Diary of a Madman reissue was derided by fans due to the removal of Daisley and Kerslake’s original bass and drum tracks. The re-issue featured re-recorded bass and drum tracks contributed by Osbourne’s then-bassist and drummer Robert Trujillo and Mike Bordin. The move was suspected of being retaliatory in nature, as Daisley and Kerslake had successfully sued Osbourne and his wife/manager Sharon in court, winning songwriting credits and royalties for their contributions to Diary of a Madman. Sharon later stated that Ozzy and not herself was responsible for the decision to re-record the parts, stating “because of Daisley and Kerslake’s abusive and unjust behavior, Ozzy wanted to remove them from these recordings. We turned a negative into a positive by adding a fresh sound to the original albums.” Fans and critics strongly disapproved of the move. The “re-recorded” versions of the album released in 2002 contained no disclaimer stating that anything had been changed on the album. The record company eventually began putting a “featuring re-recorded drums and bass parts” sticker on the cover.

MADMAN : A TALL TALE AS TOLD BY MICHEL FABER
“…I wonder, though, if you are aware of the 1982 Russian pressing on Melodiya? Several thousand were pressed although almost all were immediately destroyed.

The tale is a strange one: When the day-to-day running of Melodiya was thrown into disarray due to the arrest and internment of label boss Evgeny Levko, his son, Kiril, was briefly drafted in as a replacement. Kiril, fresh from his national service and fundamentally uninterested in politics, seemed a safe pair of hands, but what the politburo did not know was that this 19-year-old lad was a big Heavy Metal fan, having been introduced to the genre via illegally copied cassettes. Mindful that many of Melodiya’s releases were brought into existence more for the notion of prestige than because anyone (least of all the notoriously philistine politburo) actually listened to them, Levko Jr organised the Russian release of Ozzy’s Diary Of A Madman, disguising it in an audacious yet logical way: the cover artwork does not mention Osbourne’s name nor depict his likeness; instead, the sleeve reproduces an austere black&white photograph of a 19th century painted portrait of Poprishchin, the anti-hero of Nikolai Gogol’s short story, ‘Diary Of A Madman’, thus implying (but nowhere actually stating) that this LP consists of a spoken-word rendition of the tale.

Sadly, Kiril, who knew a great deal about Ozzy Osbourne but very little about Gogol, misjudged the politburo’s attitude to this great Russian author and the LP was immediately seized as anti-bureaucratic (and, by implication, anti-government) propaganda. Only the fact that the vinyl’s contents proved, on aural inspection, to be the caterwaulings of a dipsomaniac from Birmingham, saved Kiril Levkov from the labour camp.

Mint copies of the LP are nowadays much prized, as the only exemplars that were not destroyed in the week following the album’s release were posted to elderly provincial dignitaries who received all Melodiya product by subscription.”

MADMAN : A COLLECTION
I have broken down my collection of ‘Diary of a Madman’ discs into alphabetical order by country. The majority of the images are of the A side of the label only, generally the cover art is the same throughout all the copies. I have started the collection by showing the UK cover and insert which is pretty standard throughout all the first editions of the L. P. I have included the covers that deviate from the standard sleeve and I have also included images of the inserts that are different. All track listings are standard aside from a few copies which are explained in the notes. Also note that there are multiple different versions of the L. P. from the same territory, Korea having no less than three versions and the USA having around six versions or more.

If you have or know of any copy that does not appear below, or of photographic art proofs, anomalies, acetates, test pressings and curios related to ‘Diary of a Madman’ please e-mail me at andrew@andrewliles.com I will more than likely be interested in learning more. Also if you think I have made any errors please let me know at the same address.

I am currently looking for the Canadian 8 Track. This is a red cartridge (not black like the US version). Also I am after the Taiwan L.P. – this has a white label and issued on the Jade imprint as JD-1017 . Drop me a line if you have these.
