I did a major head-bob air-guitar thing while driving (which was probably pretty funny for passing drivers to see this old white guy doing). I can't remember the last time I'd heard that song.
Yes! A timeless classic.
This band helped pave the way for what is now known today as Progressive Metal , which just happens to be my favorite sub genre of metal.
Uriah Heep - Easy Livin' (1972)
Uriah Heep - Stealin' (1973)
The band's other signature track.
Surprise, surprise, two lost Heep AOR hits:
Uriah Heep - Gypsy (1970)
Uriah Heep - That's The Way That Is (1982)
A slightly toned-down style, but still, IMO, effective. This proved to be the last AOR hit for the Heep.
