Ozzy Osbourne speaks onstage at iHeartRadio ICONS with Ozzy Osbourne: In Celebration of Ordinary Man at iHeartRadio Theater on Feb. 24, 2020 in Burbank, Calif.

Ozzy Osbourne will release a 40th anniversary extended edition of his debut solo album, Blizzard of Ozz, this Friday (Sept. 18). The album originally released on September, 20, 1980, marked the metal icon's first foray on his own after splitting with Black Sabbath, launching Ozzy into the stratosphere with the hit "Crazy Train." That classic, as well as "Mr Crowley," feature late guitarist Randy Rhoads.

The extended version will hit streaming platforms this week with a number of bonus tracks and seven live songs recorded during the Blizzard tour that are currently unavailable digitally, according to a release announcing the set. The rarities include the "Crazy Train" b-side "You Looking At Me, Looking At You," a 2010 guitar & vocal mix of "Goodbye to Romance," album outtake "RR" and live versions of "I Don't Know," "Crazy Train," "Mr. Crowley," "Suicide Solution," "Steal Away (The Night)," "You Said It All" and "Revelation (Mother Earth)."

The celebration will also include the digital release of two beloved Ozzy live DVDs, Live at Budokan and Live & Loud, the latter containing guest appearances from Ozzy's former Black Sabbath bandmates Geezer Butler, Bill Ward and Tony Iommi.

Ozzy is also selling a trove of Blizzard anniversary merch on his official store, including puzzles, vintage tour t-shirts, pins and a track jacket. The singer, who released his first new solo album in a decade earlier this year, Ordinary Man, was also the subject of a recent A&E documentary, Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne.
