‘Memoirs Of A Madman’ Celebrates The Legacy Of OZZY OSBOURNE


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 7, MEMOIRS OF A MADMAN (CD) serves as a career spanning audio release, featuring 17 of OZZY’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.  Pre-order now available at Amazon.

OSBOURNE‘s ongoing solo career spans four decades–as both a successful solo artist and as the lead singer of Black Sabbath–and his music is as relevant today as ever; it still resonates daily on TV, in movies, on radio and at stadium sports events. OZZY’s latest solo release–his tenth studio album, 2010’s Scream–debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard charts, featuring the No. 1 Mainstream Rock smash “Let Me Hear You Scream.”

From the first notes of OZZY’s 1980’s solo debut Blizzard Of Ozz and follow-up Diary Of A Madmanto 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.”


The track list is as follows:

1. Crazy Train

2. Mr. Crowley

3. Flying High Again

4. Over The Mountain

5. Bark At The Moon

6. The Ultimate Sin

7. Miracle Man

8. No More Tears (edit)

9. Mama, I’m Coming Home

10. Road To Nowhere

11. Perry Mason

12. I Just Want You

13. Gets Me Through

14. Dreamer

15. I Don’t Wanna Stop

16. Life Won’t Wait

17. Let Me Hear You Scream
