Ozzy Osbourne Blizzard Of Ozz on Picture Disc LP
Mastered from the Original Master Tapes
Osbourne's Blockbuster Debut with Randy Rhoads: "Crazy Train," "I Don't Know," "Mr. Crowley," "Suicide Solution," and More!
Pressed at RTI and Pressed on a Limited-Edition Picture Disc LP
Essential Follow-Up and Rhoads' Swan Song Diary of a Madman Also Available on LP
Originally released in 1980, Blizzard of Ozz changed the face of hard rock and mainstream heavy metal. Ozzy Osbourne's solo album not only reintroduced the former Black Sabbath vocalist to the world but represents the arrival of virtuoso guitarist Randy Rhoads, whose classical-influenced playing and melodic devices stood entirely apart from his contemporaries. Moreover, Osbourne and Co. arrived armed to the teeth with a batch of infallible tunes.
From the opening, autobiographical "I
Don't Know" to the now-classic "Crazy Train" to deeper cuts such as the
haunting "Mr. Crowley" and excitable "No Bone Movies," Blizzard of Ozz
comes on at a feverish pace and immediately hooks the listener with
stunning riff structures, blazing solos, and accessible melodies. Osbourne
achieved his goal of wanting to expand into the mainstream without sacrificing his edge, and Rhoads
and a formidable rhythm section make it possible.
This 30th Anniversary Edition presents the LP in definitive sonics. Mastered
from the original master tapes and featuring all of the original
performances, pressed at RTI, and presented in limited-edition picture disc form, Blizzard of Ozz
is an essential rock document. Any guitar fan needs to own this and Osbourne's
follow-up, Diary of a Madman
, the last studio album on which Rhoads
appeared before his premature death.
So come on, go off the rails on a crazy train!
