''Blizzard of Ozz'' is the debut studio album by British singer/songwriter Ozzy Osbourne, recorded in Surrey, UK and released on September 20, 1980 in the UK and on March 27, 1981 in the U.S. ''Blizzard of Ozz'' was a commercial success and was certified 4x Platinum in the U.S., (a feat Osbourne would again achieve with the release of ''No More Tears''). ''Blizzard Of Ozz'' is one of very few albums to achieve such certification without the benefit of a Top 40 single. The album has sold over 6,000,000 copies worldwide, making it Ozzy's best-selling album to date.

In the UK, it was the first of four Osbourne albums to attain Silver certification (60,000 units sold) by the British Phonographic Industry, achieving this in August 1981.

This is Osbourne's first solo album and one of the two studio albums he recorded with guitarist Randy Rhoads before Rhoads' death in March 1982. The tracks "Crazy Train", and "Mr. Crowley" were released as singles. The former peaked at #9 on ''Billboards Top Tracks chart and has remained a staple of pop, hard rock and classic rock radio for more than 25 years.

''Blizzard of Ozz'' was re-released in 2002 with the original bass and drum tracks, recorded by Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake, respectively, removed and replaced by new recordings by Robert Trujillo and Mike Bordin.

Just recently announced was the 2010 Sony Music Entertainment re-releases of ''Blizzard of Ozz'' and Diary of a Madman, featuring Randy Rhoads, with the original bass and drum tracks restored. These will be 2 disc ''Deluxe 30th Anniversary Editions'' with demos, rarities and previously unreleased live material. A limited ''Super Deluxe Edition'' of ''Blizzard of Ozz'' will be released in the U.K. only and features a newly designed DVD sized Digipak case with the 2 CD's, a 65 minute DVD featuring never-before-seen live concert footage & interviews with Ozzy and the band, 3 ''Fender'' guitar picks, stickers, a faux invitation to the resurrection of Alistair Crowley and an 18cm by 12cm glossy 58-page booklet. Release dates have yet to be announced. - Wikipedia
