Ozzy Osbourne has had a rough run of it lately. But after a year of injuries, surgeries, cancelled tours and painful physical therapy, things seem to be looking up for the Prince of Darkness. He recently shared that he’s started writing new songs, and today, he announced that he’ll be releasing the first-ever definitive vinyl collection of all his original solo material: See You on the Other Side.

“This one’s the most elaborate collection so far,” says Osbourne. “It’s very well thought-out and well put together. It’s got everything in there that you possibly could want and some surprises along the way. The sound of a vinyl record is different, and I do believe that vinyl sounds better.”

To help him get the word out, Osbourne tapped his old friend and guitarist Zakk Wylde to star in the hilarious retro-infomercial style promo video, which you can see below.

See You on the Other Side, which is out on November 29 via Sony Legacy, contains 16 albums, 10 posters, 12 “augmented reality experience” and more. Pre-order the box set here, and see the full list of goodies below:

VINYL: 173 songs total on 16 albums, each of which is 150-gram, hand-pressed multi-colored splatter vinyl, making each pressing unique. Many of the albums are previously unavailable or are currently out of print on vinyl. The collection also includes Flippin’ The B Side, a new collection of non-album tracks, which has never been pressed to vinyl. In addition, Black Rain, Down to Earth and Scream have never been pressed in the U.S., while No More Tears was remastered from the original flat analog album masters and is offered as a two-LP set which will allow the album’s songs to be uncompressed for the very first time ever on vinyl. (Full list of albums is below.)

ART: 10 newly designed 24″X36″ posters (including some never-before-seen images) each accompany the 10 studio albums released between 1981-2010.

AR: Twelve AR (Augmented Reality) experiences will be included throughout the package. Additional details will be announced in the coming weeks.

SIGNED CERTIFICATE: Each collection features an individually numbered vellum certificate of authenticity hand-signed by OZZY.
