Cataloguing My Metal Collection Pt. 102

ARTIST:  Ozzy Osbourne
ORIGIN:  Birmingham, England
TITLE:  Bark at the Moon
LABEL:  Epic
YEAR:  1983
GENRE:  Heavy Metal
FAVORITE SONG:  "Waiting for Darkness"
NOTES:  This was the last of the classic-era Ozzy Osbourne albums I picked up.  It was quite a bit different than Ozzy's first couple of releases, mostly due to the addition of Jake Lee on guitar to replace the deceased Randy Rhoads.  Lee had a significantly different style than Rhoads, one more suited to a traditional heavy metal sound than the more classically influenced style of Rhoads.  The title track is the most well-known song on the album.  By and large this was a heavier release without a lot of filler, a common problem with Ozzy albums.
