Uriah Heep really were an excellent band..i saw them live on four occasions- lots of the audience had been drinking..not me i wanna hear David Bryon and Kerslake , Hensley and Box!

This is 'their' Child in Time.

July Morning...Bronze or Vertigo?

Gillan's version is still the best IMHO. What a voice ! A utube regular here.

Epic pieces like this, have stayed in my life since i first discovered them.

Suppers Ready or PFM would soothe my ravaged brow at exam revision time.

I dated the Ceramic Teachers Daughter...which at first didn't go down well!

My LP collection brought him 'round.

The album and it's sleeve is impeccable- no one else seems to get that sound from a strat guitar.

Many memories...but not postable.

"Overhead the albatross"....

This was a pure discovery...i'd come out of Mortimers pub...i think, just happened to have €1.40 on me for this LP.

My Rizla machine worked overtime in those days...Albany Road on Sherwood Rise with bottles of MD 20/20.

This Album focus's on change from the Tollpuddle Martyrs and beyond.

Exceptional musicanship.

Lead singer went onto God music in the late 70's .Norman Barrett is sadly no more.

Gravy Train live on though.

making.Didn't dig ice skating and my long blonde curls wouldn't have got me over the threshold of Bali Hai.Anderson-Bruford- Howe..i miss Squire.

Nice touch here with the use of a theremin..a song not recorded on the Rolling Stones BMC Mobile Unit.

From Houses Of The Holy.

They made a good job of it live, as well, when I saw them at Earls Court in 1975.

Wow!..bet that was a smasher Rob...Jimmy with his violin bow...must have been a sight to behold.

One of the rare occasions when a piece of music transcends the pop charts ..and appeals to all.Very clever..the way they multi layered the vocals to provide an orchestra of song. Cut in Stockport..this group had a great pedigree already..Graham Gouldman had penned many hits ..and for The Hollies and Hermans Hermits etc...

Takes me back to 1975 and snogging.

Prog Pop i'm calling it...enjoy.

'Attention'.

A song from a time when the Album sleeve was as good as the musical content.

This Album cemented my love of Tull..saw them in Birmingham twice..Too Old To Rock n Roll and Songs From The Wood☆☆

Two great songs Ian, saw a great Sabbath gig at the Boat just after Paranoid came out. Jethro Tull at de Montfort early '70s, I loved Tull but seem to remember a slightly disappointing performance.

Thanks for that memory TBI..sometimes i realise i was born a few years too late to have seen these bands at small and intimate venues.

When i listen to Jethro Tull - i am astounded by the sheer musicianship.

Aqualung, Stand Up, Thick As a Brick..the only LP i struggle with is Passion Play.I have the original gatefold of Paranoid LP..complete with my Bruvs name in Dynatape.

I suppose I was a bit lucky Ian, I could walk from my front door and be in the Boat (or Union) in about 5 minutes. Mind you, like yourself I was a bit too young and missed out on some great bands mid to late sixties and I kick myself to this day that I never made either of the Led Zep gigs.

This sounds like a sister song ( lyrically) to Blinded by the Light..both penned by 'Loose Windscreen'.

A great album all round from Manfred Mann's Earthband. On the Bronze label this..reminds me of the Library..i loaned this and BBC sound effects vol.1
