All tracks by Osbourne, Rhoads, Daisley, Kerslake except 3. & 4. by Osbourne, Rhoads, Daisley.

S.A.T.O is NOT short for Sailing Across The Ocean. Bob Daisley explains:

"...originally that song was called "Strange Voyage", and after I left the band, they changed the name to "S.A.T.O." and all that meant was Sharon Adrian Thelma Ozzy. Because Sharon at the time had a boyfriend called Adrian, and Ozzy's current wife at the time was Thelma. People were trying to figure out, 'Oh, it stands for Sail Across the Ocean' and all sorts of things, but it just meant that."
