Deep Purple: Deep Purple In Rock (1970)
I am somewhat surprised that it took until 1970 for a band to use Mt. Rushmore on the cover with their heads superimposed. Why did that take so long? There seems to be a debate about when heavy metal started, with this being one record under consideration as the spark. Personally, I'd have to go with Led Zeppelin I, though I really don't think that is a metal record. So, I'll avoid that topic.
This is certainly a hard rock record. It will keep your toe tapping.
