Best of Ozz is a compilation album by English heavy metal singer Ozzy Osbourne. Released on 1 March 1989 by CBS/Sony in Japan only, it features songs from Osbourne's first four studio albums, ranging from 1980's Blizzard of Ozz to 1986's The Ultimate Sin.


Best of Ozz is a ten-track compilation featuring three tracks from Blizzard of Ozz, two tracks from Diary of a Madman, two tracks from Bark at the Moon and three tracks from The Ultimate Sin.[1] Amongst the tracks included are six singles, including "Crazy Train", "Over the Mountain" and "Bark at the Moon".[1]


Music website AllMusic awarded Best of Ozz three out of five stars; reviewer James Christopher Monger praised the album as "one of the better collections out there" due to the high quality of the original albums from which the songs are taken.[1] Noting that the release only features ten tracks, Monger concluded by describing Best of Ozz as "a nice little sampler of Osbourne's early post-Sabbath career".[1]
