Just Say Ozzy is a live EP by Ozzy Osbourne. It was released on March 17, 1990 and was remastered on August 22, 1995.

Overview[edit]

The sleeve states that Just Say Ozzy was recorded at London's Brixton Academy. The music, however, was re-recorded and mixed at Electric Lady Studios in New York with engineer Adam Yellin and the audience noise and some tracks kept from the live recording.[citation needed]

The album—along with The Ultimate Sin and Live & Loud—has since been deleted from Ozzy's catalog and was not remastered and reissued along with the rest of Ozzy's albums in 2002. This is mainly due to a continuing legal struggle with bassist/songwriter Phil Soussan over the song "Shot in the Dark".

Just Say Ozzy peaked at number 58 on the Billboard 200[2] and was certified Gold on July 21, 1993.[3]

The tracks "Sweet Leaf" and "War Pigs" were composed and originally recorded by Black Sabbath, the group Osbourne fronted in the 1970s.
