Just Say Ozzy is a live EP by Ozzy Osbourne. Released on March 17, 1990 and it was re-issued on August 22, 1995. It contains the track "Shot in the Dark", first recorded in the Jake E. Lee era, and according to Osbourne's own album liner notes, it is his preferred version.
Although the sleeve states this to have been recorded at London's Brixton Academy, the gig never made any of the UK music papers either as a review or as a 'forthcoming event' and the crowd is, plainly, not a British one. Indeed, comparison of the audience noise on this mini-album and from Osbourne's MTV show at the Philadelphia Spectrum in 1989 shows it to be one and the same. The music, however, was re-recorded and mixed at Electric Lady Studios in New York with engineer Adam Yellin and the audience noise and some tracks kept from the live recording.
The album—along with The Ultimate Sin and Live & Loud—has since been deleted from Ozzy's catalog and was not remastered and reissued along with the rest of Ozzy's albums in 2002. This is mainly due to a continuing legal struggle with bassist/songwriter Phil Soussan over the song "Shot In The Dark". The only available versions of these albums are the 1995 remasters and these albums are still avalible in the iTunes store.
