The towering riffs of Tony Iommi set the band apart from many of the blues rock based bands of their time, while Ozzy Osbourne’s unique vocals added an extra layer of darkness Geezer Butlers looming bass and Bill Ward’s death march drumming.

By 1972 the swirl inner was no longer being used, instead a poly lined white sleeve was used printed with ‘Plastic Bags Can Be Dangerous’, this example includes the correct inner and is dated ‘0872’. The sleeve on this copy has minimal wear with just very light edge scuffing, the labels have just a couple of light spindle marks however the vinyl shows very little signs of play. This is by far one the best example we have seen in a long time, a really oustanding copy of this almost fifty year old pressing).
