By 1980, Ozzy Osbourne had already secured his place in the annals of heavy metal history because of his days fronting the almighty Black Sabbath. After being fired from the band in 1979, Osbourne found himself at a crossroads in his still-early career. After a brief period of self-exile, the singer re-emerged under the management of his then-girlfriend and future wife, Sharon Arden, and new, white-hot guitarist named Randy Rhodes.

The two studio albums that Rhodes and Osbourne would eventually record – 1980's 'Blizzard of Ozz' and 1981's 'Diary of a Madman' – would go on to become the most important and revered records of the Ozzman's career.

On May 31st, Legacy Recordings will be reissuing special editions of both 'Blizzard of Ozz' and 'Diary of a Madman.' Noisecreep is thrilled to have the world premiere of the long form trailer for both releases.

The 30th Anniversary Edition of 'Blizzard of Ozz' CD includes the original album in its entirety, restored and remastered for this edition with bonus tracks. The new Legacy Edition of 'Diary of a Madman' includes the original album in its entirety, restored and remastered, along with a bonus second CD of previously unreleased live performances featuring Ozzy Osbourne and Randy Rhoads with rhythm section Rudy Sarzo (bass) and Tommy Aldridge (drums). A single-disc version of the remastered 'Diary of a Madman' will also be available.
