Uriah Heep “The Magician’s Birthday”
In honor of their just announced show July 1st at the Beverly Art Center, Today’s Cool Album of the Day is Uriah Heep’s, “The Magician’s Birthday.”
I was going to go with “Demons and Wizards,” but that was too obvious. So I’m pulling out “The Magician’s Birthday.’
TMB contains three of my favorite songs by them. ‘Sunrise, The Magician’s Birthday’ and ‘Sweet Lorraine.’
As mentioned Uriah Heep still tours. I’m not sure how good they’ll be since David Byron, Ken Hensley are long gone. But the current band, which does feature Mick Box has been together for almost 20 years. So we’ll see. I guess the only change lately is that Russell Gilbrook has replaced Lee Kerslake behind the drums.
I guess I might go. What the heck.
