Ozzy Osbourne Live EP is a live EP released by Ozzy Osbourne in 1980. It was the only live recording of guitarist Randy Rhoads ever to be released prior to 1987's Tribute, with the exception of the live B-side of "I Don't Know" on the 7" of "Over The Mountain"/"Flying High Again".


The EP contained live versions of "Mr. Crowley", "Suicide Solution" and "You Said It All", performed at a 1980 Southampton performance. After performing a show in Birmingham, the band hastily returned to Ridge Farm Studio to remix the song "Goodbye To Romance" for an anticipated single release. The next morning they were informed that Jet Records wanted a new song to release instead as a single.[1][dead link] Rhoads, Daisley, and Kerslake quickly put together the song "You Said It All", with drummer Kerslake performing the guide vocal at soundcheck while a drunken Osbourne slept under the drum riser.[1][dead link] The plans to release "You Said It All" as a single were later scrapped for unknown reasons; the track was never recorded and the live version featured on Ozzy Osbourne Live EP is the only known performance of the song.
