(Playlist) 1979:THE YEAR IN METAL - In 40 Minutes

Let's go back in time when heavy metal was just beginning to find its legs (after its birth in 1970 with BLACK SABBATH's self-titled debut). Back then hard rock and metal were terms used interchangeably, so don't be surprised to see both represented in this 40-minute curated set of the best hard music made that year.

A big salute to 1979 - one of the greatest years (the greatest?!) in music history. So much so that we had to extend the playlist to 50+ minutes!
