Black Sabbath – Black Sabbath (2015 Reissue on 180g Vinyl)
Black Sabbath is the debut studio album by Black Sabbath. It was released on 13 February 1970 in the United Kingdom and on 1 June 1970 in the United States. The album is widely regarded as the first album in the heavy metal genre. Additionally, the opening track, the self-titled Black Sabbath, has been referred to as the first doom metal song.
Upon release, the album reached No. 8 on the UK Albums Charts and No. 23 on the US Billboard 200. It was included in Robert Dimery’s book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
Ozzy Osbourne has always spoken fondly of the recording of the band’s debut album, stating in his autobiography I Am Ozzy, ‘Once we’d finished, we spent a couple of hours double-tracking some of the guitar and vocals, and that was that. Done. We were in the pub in time for last orders. It can’t have taken any longer than twelve hours in total. That’s how albums should be made, in my opinion.’
