OzzyOsbourneShhh This October, the career of rock icon Ozzy Osbourne will be celebrated with the Epic Records/Legacy Recordings Memoirs Of A Madman collections.

Due out October 7th, Memoirs Of A Madman (CD) serves as a career spanning audio release, featuring 17 of Osbourne’s greatest hit singles compiled in one place for the first time in his career and will be available in a single CD, two-LP set and two-LP picture disc set configurations.

From the first notes of Ozzy’s 1980’s solo debut Blizzard Of Ozz and follow-up Diary Of A Madman to classic albums No More Tears and Scream, no hard rock solo artist has had quite the same reach as Ozzy; his distinctive vocal delivery and larger than life onstage persona quickly endeared him to millions of rockers. Ozzy immediately had the attention of fans of heavy music with rock staples Crazy Train, Mr. Crowley and Flying High Again. With the 1991 release No More Tears, Ozzy continued his radio success with acclaimed and hugely successful singles No More Tears and the smash hit Mama, I’m Coming Home.

1. Crazy Train
2. Mr. Crowley

Comments

  1. “That’s right, in coordination with Sharon Osbourne, we present Memoirs of A Madman! You have these songs on several different packages, but never before have you owned it quite like this! For $144, you can now own pictures of Ozzy making those lovable, “I’m taking a s” faces while he mumbles through show after show. Never before have you owned the videos of that drug laden Madman as he shifts hairstyles faster than Kanye West loses fans. Who can forget the Dutch Boy look as Ozzy’s hair grew back after he shaved his head…for no apparent reason! What about the incorrigible Killer Bee outfit, complete with Farrah Fawcett hair for the Ultimate Sin tour! Yes, all of this can be yours with an autographed picture of Ozzy! DISCLAIMER: (Pictures will be mailed separately as Ozzy tries to remember his fucking name!!) These are all the songs that have been beaten into the ground so many times by radio, they have almost turned into powder, but now, thanks to Sharon Osbourne and her thirst for cash, you can have them shoved up your ass again!! Order now and receive actual dirt from the Alamo in San Antonio. This offer not available in stores.

  2. doug r. says:

    The Blizzard Of Ozz has been quiet as of late, I hope he starts barking at the moon again real soon! Maybe he has 1 more tour left in him? I hope so, we’ll see. :)

  3. Shot in the Dark is missing, not cool

  4. Holy s Greg…….. that was priceless and well put. The truth usually is.

    Tommy Sedge.

  5. Turd jones says:

    Ozzys saying, “shhhh….don’t tell anybody, but I’ve released the same [material] over and over again for years now and my albums for the last 20 years have sucked.”

  6. “You can’t Kill Rock & Roll” should be on there. One of his best songs in my opinion.

    • Phil,

      I echo your sentiments, that is a very underrated song.

      Dana from ET.com :)

      • pete lytel says:

        Wow Dana. Did you fall asleep on this thread? So now people can can curse like crazy say things like “suck c*ck” etc , im no prude by any means and I know this is a rock site but I thought you guys wanted civilty here. This is no different than youtube or craigslist where people anonymously trash each other, curse and tear apart bands all in the name of “their opinion”.

  7. James K. says:

    I’m not a big fan of greatest hits packages, compilations, box sets, ect, ect. I have all of Ozzy’s albums, live albums and dvds, heard the songs a million times and seen all the videos to the point that I’m sick of them. So I think I’ll be good without this, especially considering that it won’t be cheap. Sorry Sharon.

  8. studaddy says:

    I plan to buy the autographed limited edition fan bundle even though I have all of Ozzy’s albums and dvds. In my opinion Ozzy is the greatest artist of all time and deserves my money and support. \m/ Ozzy Is God \m/

  9. If Sharon is behind this, that pretty much means it’ll stink, especially with the first four tracks being the crappy re-mastered versions with new bass and drum tracks. Not buying it.

    • Sharon has managed Ozzy since the beginning. Without her…
      I understand though–when I first heard of Ozzy, I thought he was mysterious, evil, and crazy. There’s no more to learn. That’s why we get bored. The last album I loved of his was Ozzmosis.

  10. The SPEAK OF THE DEVIL DVD from last year was I thought pretty good and original in the sense that Brad Gillis was on it. It was like $12 and of decent quality. More stuff like that would be appreciated.

    • James K. says:

      It was cool to see that again. That was an old MTV concert and it was great that they chose to release it by itself as a dvd. You’re right, gems like that that haven’t seen the light of day in ages or at all are always great to see.

      • Zakk Wylde played a show with the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND. He supposedly did heavy metal riffs throughout and the concert was a disaster. I would get that if available ahead of this same old boring stuff. Halford did at least one show with BLACK SABBATH. I wouldn’t mind that as well OZZY playing with Vinny Appice. I got the DELUXE BORN AGAIN with Gillan singing classic SABBATH and SMOKE ON THE WATER. Nothing great but something interesting.

    • Sadly, the vocals were pretty much rerecorded per Eddie Trunk.

  11. Van Helsing's Kid says:

    That was perfect, Greg!

  12. James Wallace Jr says:

    I’m looking forward to the 2 DVD release. Only one issue…. No “Shot in the Dark.” video. This was a BIG hit in ’84 and it’s sad it won’t be included on this set. But, virtually all other OZ videos looks to be included. The reason for no SHOT? Ozzy has been quoted, “He didn’t like the sound of that song” (or The Ultimate Sin LP for that matter) and there could be issues in terms of performancing rights and royalties (maybe an actor(s) featured). I know RATT recut Dance video because the estate of a late actor in it, didn’t sign off on the release. But SHOT was originally featured on The Ultimate Ozzy concert film. So, who knows the REAL reason.

  13. Harry Taint says:

    I have heard that Jake got screwed on his publishing royalties. Is that true, does anyone know the story on that?

    • James K. says:

      They touched on that subject briefly when he was on TMS. He said he didn’t care anymore about getting any publishing, he just wants his name as songwriter on all the songs he wrote. Publishing is where the money is, so I’m also curious as to how that situation went down. If he was deliberately screwed out of his publishing royalties then Sharon and Ozzy really need to be ashamed of themselves.

  14. I’ll get it if it’s got the MTV Bark at the Moon concert, it’s hard to tell by the listing. But I assume not cause that concert had Bob Daisley on bass, and Lord knows Sharon can’t screw Bob enough.

  15. I’ve always been an Ozzy fan but I won’t be buying this. It’s the same old stuff, gees man.

  16. Gary B. says:

    What Greg said……lol

  17. sickballs says:

    Just what we all need, more of the same. Another greatest hits package. Not sure who has more, Ozzy or KISS?? Oz needs to drop Gus G. and beg ZAKK back to make a killer record. That last one was a stinker!!

  18. Bastard says:

    Studaddy, do you really think is capable of signing his own autographs?? He probably has bob daisley off to the side doing it for him.

  19. Thanks Greg for putting it so well. I’m sitting this out. I’m sure the sound will be be horrible anyway – meaning compressed to death.
    What actually was worth buying were the anniversary editions of Blizzard and Diary on vinyl. The remastering for the CD’s was total garbage, yet the vinyl was done right & the sound is as dynamic & crankable as you remember it. Nice pressing quality done by RTI too. It shows that some things are worth buying while others ain’t even worth downloading. LOL.

  20. I have not bought anything with Ozzy on it in close to 20 years. Never forgave him and Sharon for purposely (in my opinion) screwing up the Dehumanzier reunion back in 92. Besides, Ozzy hasn’t put out anything decent really to speak of since No rest for the Wicked.

  21. Aside from the 2 videos of “Lightning Strikes” and “Ultimate Sin” which I’ve never seen I really don’t need yet another Ozzy compilation

  22. I really think the Black Rain album is very overlooked, there are some great tracks on that disc. Not sure why they would put the edited (radio )version of No More Tears on instead of the original?? And the Shot in The Dark dispute shouldn’t really be much of a dispute as Phil Soussan basically gave this song to Ozzy for the Ultimate Sin recording. The song did a great deal of busine$$ & really helped Ozzy’s popularity in 86′, so why can’t they just give up a few more points on their end to Mr. Soussan & had the track included on the compilation??

  23. Max Cady says:

    Greedy Sharon won’t get anymore of my dough.
