Initially released on September 20, 1980 in the UK, Blizzard Of Ozz marked Ozzy's debut studio album (following his departure from Black Sabbath); the expanded digital 40th anniversary edition is available via Sony/Legacy. 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 were 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 US; platinum (or multi-platinum) in another 12 countries and gold in an additional 13 countries. Blizzard Of Ozz was the first of two studio albums recorded with guitarist Randy Rhoads.

The album's "Crazy Train" went on to become one of Osbourne's signature tracks; the song has also become one of the most played sports anthems frequently heard at NFL, NBA, MLB & NHL games. It peaked at #9 on Billboard's Top Tracks chart upon release - and in 2009, the song achieved a 5× platinum certification. The live tracks - "I Don't Know," "Crazy Train," "Mr. Crowley," "Revelation (Mother Earth)," "Steal Away (The Night)" and "Suicide Solution" - were recorded on the Blizzard Of Ozz tour and were previously found only in the Blizzard Of Ozz/Diary Of A Madman 30th Anniversary Deluxe Box Set. "You Said It All" (live) was originally found on the 1980 Mr Crowley live EP, recorded in 1980 at the Gaumont Theater, Southampton, UK and was also not previously available digitally.
