OZZY OSBOURNE – Blizzard Of Ozz [40th Anniversary Expanded Deluxed Edition] (2020)

It’s been almost 40 years since the release of Black Sabbath frontman OZZY OSBOURNE‘s debut solo album ‘Blizzard Of Ozz‘ and the singer is celebrating that milestone by releasing a 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of the album on September 18, 2020, which will feature seven live tracks not previously available in digital format.
The new package includes Ozzy hits: “Crazy Train,” which will hit certified 5x platinum status to coincide with its September release date; the gold-certified (in four countries) “Mr. Crowley” (both of which feature Randy Rhoads on guitar); along with “Suicide Solution,” plus live versions of seven tracks that are currently unavailable digitally.
The record was ultimately certified 5x platinum and was ranked #9 on Rolling Stone‘s list of “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time” in the U.S.; platinum (or multi-platinum) in another 12 countries and gold in an additional 13 countries.
Easily one of the greatest singer-solo debut in Rock history.
A must have classic
