Ozzy Osbourne is releasing a deluxe digital reissue of his debut solo album, Blizzard of Ozz, in honor of its 40th anniversary.

The expanded collection includes seven bonus live tracks that have never before been available digitally. It’ll be released this Friday, September 18.

Along with the Blizzard reissue, two of Ozzy’s concert films — 1993’s Live & Loud and 2002’s Live at Budokan — will be released on digital platforms.

Osbourne recorded Blizzard of Ozz after he was fired from Black Sabbath in 1979. It was originally released September 20, 1980, in Ozzy’s native U.K., and spawned hit singles in “Crazy Train” and “Mr. Crowley.” In the U.S., it’s been certified five-times platinum.
