That's not the point of this discussion. My premise is: prior to 1980 the only change is the absence of BS. Every other band: Judas Priest, Scorpions, Queen, and (perhaps the most relevant to this discussion) Rainbow go just like they did in real life.
Explain how.
That's the basic condition of the question. Just accept it and begin with 1980. Or make your own thread.
No, cannot "just accept" this. You haven't named an alternative path. If you had said "Deep Purple and Uriah Heep and King Crimson as the foundations and their work through the 1970s..."

But you haven't.

Black Sabbath's effect on music is well documented. That's not the point here.
The question is: how would we rank / perceive
Sabbath if they dropped on this earth in 1980 with "Heaven & Hell"?
Wouldn't get there.
I don't know what this means. Who wouldn't get where?
That's because your whole idea is flawed. Black Sabbath debuting circa H&H would not exist without some portion of the Ozzy years preceding.
