On this day in Classic Rock history…Friday, February 13th (of course it was Friday the 13th) 1970 Black Sabbath released their first album. According to Tony Iommi, it was recorded in a single day in October of 1969. Peaking at number 8 on the charts, the album has been recognised as the first main album to be credited with the development of the heavy metal genre.
I found some cool videos and live performances for a few of the tracks…enjoy!
