Extremely Rare Unheard Ozzy Osbourne Song Finally Surfaces, Sample Available! (5/17/2006)




The following is an Ozzyhead.com exclusive story:

In 1977, a singer/song writer/producer by the name of Chris Sedgwick asked his close friend Ozzy Osbourne who was living in the UK to sing back up vocals on a cover of the Animals song "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood". Ozzy complied, and along with the help of some local musicians by the name of Benjamin Marcus, and Caldwell, the track was layed down and pressed on a 7" vinyl single, and distributed under the label "Birmingham Free Music" to local pubs to be played in the jukeboxes. The B-side of this single contained a song entitled "Have You Ever Bin Loved" which was sung by Chris Sedgwick alone (No Ozzy). It is said that only 100 copies were pressed, of which most were destroyed in a fire.

This song has remained unheard for almost the last 30 years...until now. Get out your wallets, because this extremely rare single is up for auction on ebay. You can bid on this single here:
