One of the best albums ever, in my estimation, David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart for the week ending June 17, 1972.  It spent an impressive 72 weeks on the chart, the longest run for any of his albums, but reached a not-so-impressive peak of #75.
