Here are my thoughts at least regarding the Montreal theories.

FHA is definitely the only song from Montreal on Ozzy Live as far as guitar tracks go. As mentioned, there are some vocal intros that were taken from Montreal and even at least one shout to the crowd during a song (Believer) from Montreal.

I haven't evaluated the bass and drum tracks but it is evident that Sound Replacer was used on the drums (except for the drum solo) to give it a more modern sound. Just listen to the sound of the drums during the drum solo and compare that to the rest of the concert. That would also help FHA blend in more with the other songs.

I agree that the bass drum is not very present on Montreal. It seems like it doesn't exist in some parts. But I think there was some bass drum added on Ozzy Live. Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think that Tommy usually did the bass drum eighth notes in FHA ("Mama's gonna worry" section) or the double bass drum at the end of Revelation. I would not be surprised if they added that in, especially since they were using Sound Replacer. That would help it to fit in without sticking out.

Between Tribute and Ozzy Live they have really made it impossible to ever release Montreal. Not that I would want them to anyway. I think they really dried up Randy's guitar tone on FHA on Ozzy Live plus they removed his delay/echo.

I wish we got to hear the FHA from the rest of the show and most of all I wish they didn't use so much compression and limiting. The CD has very little dynamic range. It's all loud all the time just like most new CD's and remasters (including the 2011 Blizzard and Diary remasters). Did anyone get the Ozzy Live vinyl? Is it better?

The vinyl is fantastic, great pressing quality and if you can find it, nab it. I never listen to the CD anymore, the vinyl presents a wider soundstage, and I feel is a better representation than what the CD offers.

Cool, thanks for the info!
