This time in 1970, Black Sabbath’s debut LP reached it’s peak on the US charts at #23 [source:rockhall.com].
There really are no words to describe the importance of this record on rock music. This album marked the official birth of heavy metal. I don’t think there is a rock and roll soul in the world that does not own this album in some form.
