Ozzy Osbourne has announced an expanded edition of his debut solo album ‘Blizzard Of Ozz’ to mark its 40th anniversary.
The record was originally released back in September 1980 and contains the tracks ‘Crazy Train’, ‘Mr. Crowley’ and ‘Suicide Solution’.
This Friday (September 18), the extended version of ‘Blizzard of Ozz’ will land on streaming platforms, boasting the bonus tracks ‘You Looking At Me, Looking At You’ (originally the B-side to ‘Crazy Train’), ‘Goodbye to Romance’ (2010 Guitar & Vocal Mix) and album outtake ‘RR’.
Fans will also be able to hear seven live songs which were recorded during the ‘Blizzard Of Ozz’ tour, including rarity ‘You Said It All’, ‘Steal Away’ and ‘Revelation’.
In addition to the expanded album, Osbourne will digitally release the live concert films Live & Loud (1993) and Live at Budokan (2002). These were originally available on VHS/DVD and are rarely found online.

Last week, it was announced that Funko Pop! are set to release a new Ozzy Osbourne collectable figure. The toy was inspired by the rock icon’s latest solo album ‘Ordinary Man’.
“It’s done. The only thing I do regret is not doing the last farewell show in Birmingham with [drummer] Bill Ward. I felt really bad about that,” he explained.
Osbourne, however, promised last month that he would never retire from music. “You know the time when I will retire? When I can hear them nail a lid on my box,” he said. “And then I’ll fucking do an encore. I’m the Prince Of Darkness.”
