Black Sabbath without a doubt.

Sabbath was much more consistent album-wise over that time period. To be honest, if you have Deep Purple's Made in Japan, that's all you really need from that group.

Yeah right, that's coming from someone who prefers Sabbath, duh! Wink
 
For me it's Deep Purple, Book of Taliesyn and the s/t have some great unique tracks, and of course the MK 2 compromised of In Rock, Fireball and Machine Head are essential hard rock. Then, MK 3/4 is my favorite for its funk/soul style, with Stormbringer and Come Taste the Band being funky as hell.
 
The latter stuff is ok, maybe Purpendicular would still be essential for DP heads with the great Steve Morse. Although as a fan, I still very much like Bananas.
 
Mind you, I rate highly Sabbath, unique heavy band with amazing riffs and compositions, especially the proggy Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Also, the debut and Paranoid are as essential as In Rock and Machine Head are.
 
EDIT: oh, just read the 70-75 period thing... still, it would be Purple for Fireball, Machine Head, Stormbringer and Come Taste the Band.

There are only two bands in my mind that can beat Black Sabbath's 1970-1975 period, so...Deep Purple is crushed by the Hand of Doom!

All of Sabbath's albums up to Sabotage are so epic - can't vote against that.
