Black Sabbath Top Album Chart After 43 Year Gap
Original metallers break record as Robin Thicke stays atop singles chart...
Black Sabbath have topped the Official UK Albums Chart for the first time in 43 years - making a new record for the longest gap between No 1 LPs.
The veteran metallers - fronted by Ozzy Osbourne - saw their comeback album 13 beat Beady Eye's BE to the top spot, outselling former Oasis star Liam Gallagher's new band by 13,000 copies.
Sabbath last occupied the No 1 position in 1970 with their second long player, Paranoid.
Rod Stewart's Time moved up one place to No 3, switching spots with Daft Punk's Random Access Memories.
And Disclosure's Settle - which was last week's No 1 - dropped four places to No 5.
Meanwhile over in the Official UK Singles Chart, Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines (ft. T.I. and Pharrell) extended its residency at the top into a third week.
Naughty Boy's La La La (ft. Sam Smith) was another non-mover at No 2, while Passenger's Let Her Go moved up one spot to No 3.
Daft Punk's summertime dance anthem Get Lucky (ft. Pharrell Williams) slipped one spot to No 4 and Olly Murs' Dear Darlin' was a non-mover at No 5.
