OZZY OSBOURNE: Upcoming Covers CD To Feature Backing Vocals By 'The X Factor' Star

Irish singer Tabby Callaghan of the TV show "The X Factor" has laid down backing vocals for the upcoming OZZY OSBOURNE covers CD, to be included in Ozzy's "Bible of Ozz" box set, according to SundayMirror.co.uk. "The X Factor" is a popular TV talent-search show which features Ozzy's wife Sharon as a judge/presenter.

Callaghan told SundayMirror.co.uk that he recorded his vocal parts at Abbey Road studios in London — possibly the most famous recording studio in the world which made its name with big orchestral recordings and of course, THE BEATLES.

The 52-song collection, due on February 8, "Bible of Ozz" chronicles Ozzy's career via his biggest hits and most memorable collaborations, while including a separate disc with 10 newly recorded versions of his favorite songs by other artists. This means that Ozzy fans can hear the madman's very own renditions of classics by the ROLLING STONES, MOUNTAIN, MOTT THE HOOPLE, KING CRIMSON, and others.

The "Bible of Ozz" box set will be packaged in a weathered, collectable gothic book with new images of Ozzy taken by famed British photographer/artist Sam Taylor Wood. It will be come with a 60-page booklet that contains a complete career overview and rare Ozzy photos.

The first two discs in the set will encompass re-mastered versions of Ozzy's most popular solo smash hits. The third disc (which is entitled "Oddities and Duets") is comprised of some of Ozzy's most unusual collaborations. And the special fourth disc (called "Under Covers") is comprised of newly recorded covers as only Ozzy can deliver.
