Ozzy’s solo career began with a cackle. After being booted from Black Sabbath in 1979, the eccentric frontman proved his worth by teaming up with godly guitarist Randy Rhoades and recording Blizzard of Ozz, which was preceded by its lovably insane lead single “Crazy Train” — a song that’s now just as iconic as any Sabbath tune he ever belted over. Our picture disc variant features a couple of B-sides and spotlight’s Ozzy’s loony-eyed glare on its cover art.
