OZZY OSBOURNE To Release 'Memoirs Of A Madman' CD, Two-Disc DVD In October

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.

The "Memoirs Of A Madman" DVD is a definitive visual two-disc DVD set which includes classic music videos, along withunreleased and out-of-print live performances, plus interviews from his solo career. Both sets offer fans of the multi-platinum recording artist, Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and three-time Grammy-winning singer and songwriter hours of entertainment from Ozzy's distinguished solo career.

On July 22, fans got a sneak peek of "Memoirs Of A Madman" via Twitter. By using #OzzyRules in accordance with the number of tweets, engaged fans were able to unscramble the cover artwork and unlock a video teaser.

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 chart, 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 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".

The track listing is as follows:

01. Crazy Train
02. Mr. Crowley
03. Flying High Again
04. Over The Mountain
05. Bark At The Moon
06. The Ultimate Sin
07. Miracle Man
08. No More Tears (edit)
09. 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

Details on the "Memoirs Of A Madman" 2-DVD set are as follows:

DVD One features more than two dozen of Ozzy's classic and unforgettable music videos from across his discography, including a bonus alternate version of "Mama, I'm Coming Home" and making-of footage from the videos "Let Me Hear You Scream" and "Life Won't Wait".

DVD Two features live performances and interview clips spanning Ozzy's solo journey, much of which makes its debut on DVD. Some selections have appeared on long-out-of-print VHS releases; others will be seen here for the first time, making this an essential package for fans old and new.
