To all the Randy Rhoads fans around the world - this is for you.

I have thought about doing a compilation of Randy's best live work from all the known bootlegs for quite some time. The problem was that I did not own them or know where to source them. However, through many trading circles and some gracious folks out there, I was able to locate them, clean them up and remaster them in my home studio to provide another tribute to the man, the legend and the enormous talent that was the greatest guitarist of all time....Randy Rhoads!

Thanks for your help: Mikesline, PCM, Guus, Craig B, Cableguy, Snowden7772 and all the cool people at http://www.randyrhoads.tk and in particular, Blizzard of John for the artwork.

Special thanks to the Rhoads family for encouraging Randy to be the best he can be to the enjoyment of the fans worldwide.

Long Live The King! ....Randy Rhoads.

It has two covers...one for the Les Paul and one for the Polka Dot flying V!!!

1980 UK Blizzard Of Ozz Tour, 1981 North American Blizzard of Ozz Tour, 1981-2 European / USA Diary of a Madman Tour.

1 Intro * 1982.01.24 - chicago

Don't expect Tribute quality after all, they were all bootlegs. However, what i have done is heads and tails above the original files. I should upload Hoffman Estates....what a difference to that show.

You like my signature?

They are FLAC files. Here is a link to the info/download of the "FLAC front end" program to decode/encode to the Free Lossless Audio Codec. http://flac.sourceforge.net/download.html

The artwork is very nice. I can't wait to listen to it. Thanks for the efforts. Lambchops, I'm sorry I wasn't any help in getting the audios for this. Can I at least offer the server space for a permanent hosting solution without the pop-ups of megaupload?

Go there and install it. Add the flac files and convert to wave. It's the easiest converter on the net i think.

I've uploaded part as WAV files, and will try and finish tomorrow. I'll have folders for FLAC, WAV and MISC with the artwork, and such.

Thanks again you guys for the hard work. If you've downloaded the audio, make sure after giving it a listen to give a thank you to these guys. I know they've put a tremendous amount of work into this for everyone.

^Good call Darin. Keeping the pool clean, so to speak. I listened late Sunday evening and I just had to send another round of thanks out to everyone who helped with this project. I liked the best new talent award that you snuck in the end of Dee as well.

I just realized what Blizzard of John meant about the files. I stupidly forgot to number them!!!! YOu have to put them in the correct order when burning them in order for the cd to play correctly.

Glad you like it.

(yeah, i added best new talent and the footsteps from Tribute...)

Well after all this work, i am surprised that more people did not comment either way. That being said there is no need to do any more. Would have thought that people would have jumped all over this....480people downloaded on Dime.

Well...i did the Chicago show, Milwaukee, Hoffman for myself...maybe more i think. I only upped CHicago (remastered) and Milwaukee (raw). I may do one a week til they are all done. Probably just put them on dime.....

Did Offenbach also....can't remember what else.

Did not touch LA 81 or Richfield...i am not a magician.

If you can't figure out the FLAC, try the WAV files :wink:

Thanks for all the work you've put into this, it is all very much appreciated. I definitely would like to hear any more shows that you have done.. also thanks for putting them into the WAV format, I couldn't get FLAC to work somehow.

Flac files really aren't meant to be played. THey have to be converted to Wav first. Flac just compresses the wav file to a smaller file size.
