Black Sabbath Paranoid - 1st UK vinyl LP album (LP record)
Tracklisting / Additional Info: The second studio album by the English heavy metal, released on the 18th September 1970, it was the band's only LP to top the UK Albums Chart until the release of 13 in 2013. Contains several of the band's signature songs including Iron Man, War Pigs and the title track, which was the band's only Top 20 hit, reaching number four in the UK charts.

The matrix numbers indicating that this copy was among the first pressed are:

SIDE A - 1 Y // 1 V 420

SIDE B - 2 Y // 1 V 420

The Gatefold sleeve designed and photographed by Marcus Keef. Originally to be titled War Pigs, changed at the last minute to avoid offending America due to their involvement in the Vietnam conflict. As mentioned in the main description this has the credit to Jim Simpson/Big Bear Managament on inner gatefold. These were withdrawn due to contractual disputes between the band and Big Bear.

There is a light crease on the bottom left corner and just minimal wear on the edges, there was a originally a name tag attached to the inside but over time this is no longer attached and has just left two small glue tape marks.

The label features the large swirl logo above spindle and 'VERTIGO' text below. This label design was used for both the first issue (with Big Bear credit) and the second issue (with the Big Bear credit removed).

Apart from a couple of light spindle mark the labels are extremely clean. We were told that the original owner was not allowed to play his records by his parents, and were only played a few times.

This is backed up by the vinyl, there are just a few paper scuffs and a few noticeable light surface marks, but shows only a few signs of play, and for being almost forty five years old this is an excellent example.

Side A
1. War Pigs
2. Paranoid
3. Planet Caravan
4. Iron Man

Side B
1. Electric Funeral
2. Hand Of Doom
3. Rat Salad
4. Fairies Wear Boots
