At last Ozzy and Randy's albums have been released with some added extras and the original bass and drum tracks from Lee Kerslake and Bob Daisley put back in the mix. Finally youger rockers can hear these classic albums how they where supposed to sound and its about time too!!! The bass and drums sound so warm and the guitar feels more prominent than I remember on the original recordings but I am not complaining about that, it is Randy Rhoads after all!!! I love this album so much and Randy's playing is stellar throughout and the fact that Ozzy still plays many of these tracks live is testament to the brilliance of the playing and writing throughout. Too many favourites too mention here and there is no such thing as a bad Randy Rhoads song or solo the man was a genius. How can you argue with Mr Crowley, I Don't Know, Suicide Solution, Revelation Mother Earth, Dee and Goodbye To Romance. The extra tracks are great too - Looking At Me Looking At You was on the last remasters of these cd's but sounds so much better with the original bass and drum tracks. A real gem is the extra track is Goodbye To Romance guitar and vocal mix which is a version of this song with just Ozzy's vocal and Randy's guitar and this highlights what a gorgeous song this was, and the solo remains one of my favourites of all time!! The last extra track is called RR and is a recording of Randy playing some solos and riffs in the studio. This was very illuminating and a real treat for Randy fans like me. If you have never heard this cd or Diary of A Madman then this is the time to buy them. Thanks Ozzy for writing the wrongs of the previous versions of these releases and finally doing justice to rock musics greatest ever guitarist!! Ps my only gripe is that the expensive box set edition of these releases is the only one with the dvd documentary included and as any stuff by Randy is very rare I would love to see this released seperately!! RIP Randy

Ozzy Osbourne released his debut solo album in 1980 and it has since went on to become an all-time classic album in the eyes of many. It contains a lot of great material and grows on you with each listen.

The album is one of only two studio albums with the late Randy Rhodes on board as the guitarist. Randy's guitar playing is the stuff of legends as I'm sure you've already heard if you like this kind of music.

Blizzard Of Ozz features the classic tracks `Crazy Train,' `Suicide Solution,' and `Mr Crowley,' all of which are essential listening for any Ozzy fan. The album is also strong as a whole, with great rocking tracks like `I Don't Know,' and `No Bone Movies,' keeping the album's energy up alongside a few softer moments for variety.

The album is strong in terms of songwriting, a masterpiece guitar-wise and Ozzy's excellent vocals have rarely sounded better. Overall, Blizzard Of Ozz is definitely a must have album for Ozzy fans.

This 2011 expanded edition of the album does not come with linear notes or a DVD, but thankfully does feature the original performance by the original musicians remastered to the highest quality. This is not the version where Mike Bordin and Rob Trujillo were made to overdub the original rhythm section out of the mix. Furthermore, there is the bonus tracks 'RR,' and 'You Looking At Me, Looking At You,' in addition to an alternative version of the ballad 'Goodbye To Romance.'

If you want to listen to Blizzard Of Ozz, this is a great way to do it.

It’s an often told story in rock and roll but one always worth repeating. The amazing events revolving Ozzy Osbourne’s debut album “Blizzard of Ozz” with the prodigious axe-man Randy Rhoads. In the late 70’s Ozzy gets fired from Sabbath for his chemical abuse, and proceeds to spend the next several months living in a hotel room, getting drunk and watching war movies, enjoying the final fruits of his labour before going back to the real world of work, just like so many other failed rock stars. But that was not to be. Sharon Arden came around to collect a debt, and whether or not it was an epiphany or a moment of madness is unclear, but she saw Ozzy in his sorry state and decided to manage him as a solo artist. How cute.

But the really interesting story...the actual album itself. Randy Rhoads along with Eddie Van Halen, George Lynch, and Yngwie Malmsteen was definitely responsible for steering hard rock in the shred direction of the 1980’s. This gave Ozzy not only a new dimension as he was breaking away from doomy riffs of the Sabbath variety, but he was now writing classic songs with a completely new attack on guitar. This was by no means as Black Sabbath clone project. This was original and vitalising rock and roll.

This album in my opinion fares better than “Heaven and hell” by Black Sabbath from the same year (1980). Don’t get me wrong I love me some “Heaven and hell” I’m always listening to staple classics like “Neon knights” and so forth. But Ozzy just had an extra element of magic. Was it Randy? Was it the exciting new sound? Was it just the surprise that Ozzy left a huge institution like Black Sabbath...and actually made it!? Maybe it’s all of those reasons.

The now legendary riffage that goes down in “Crazy train” started a small guitar revolution in itself.
