Saturday Rock Show

I am relenting. A few months back I was going to put up a Uriah Heep song, but after an initial perusal, I turned thumbs down. Giving their vintage stuff (their nostalgia circuit stuff just isn't the same) another look, I decided I would put up one of my favorite tunes of theirs. Incidentally, the opening, even the arrangement and song structure, is very reminiscent of Joe Cocker's cover of "With a Little Help From My Friends" - the rolling Hammond organ chords, the guitar soloing, the change in dynamics as the vocals begin, with the slow build as instruments are added. This is "July Morning".

Incidentally, keyboardist Ken Hensley wrote the best liner notes. Ever.
