Today Black Sabbath's debut album featuring "Black Sabbath", "N.I.B." and "The Wizard" turns 45.  Released in the U.K. on February 13, 1970.

Many consider it the birth of Heavy Metal.  I just wonder where music would be especially in the world of rock if it wasn't for this album.  It wasn't well received when it was released but now it's considered a classic.  It's been ranked on a number of best of list, including number 238 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.   A True Classic!
