Uriah Heep - 'Blind Eye' (2017 Remaster)

Stranger than the sunrise
Darker than the night
Fiercer than a rainstorm
This is man's delight
This is man's delight

Weaker than a moment
And hot as any fire
Blinder than the blind eye
This is man's desire
This is man's desire

I ran to a place in the open sea
Where I pledged
My life to the sun
It was good for a while
I could laugh, I could smile
But when I woke up one day
The sun had gone

I ran to a place in the open sea
Where I pledged
My whole life to the sun
It was good for a while
I could laugh, I could smile
But when I woke up one day
The sun had gone
Had gone, had gone
Hey, hey, hey

So what of my meaning
What am I trying to say
What of my caution
I'm a man anyway
I'm a man anyway

I'm a man anyway
I'm a man anyway
I'm a man anyway
I'm a man anyway
I'm a man anyway
I'm a man anyway
I'm a man anyway



Ένας από τους ύμνους των Uriah Heep και ολάκερης της δεκαετίας του εβδομήντα. "Blind Eye". Το γνωρίσαμε από τον πέμπτο (και υπέροχο) δίσκο της Βρετανική μπάντας "The Magician's Birthday" που κυκλοφόρησε τον Νοέμβριο του 1972. "Βγήκε" και αυτόνομα ως single (με το "Blind Eye" στην δεύτερη πλευρά του δίσκου). Μουσική και στίχοι του Ken Hensley. Στα τέλη του περασμένου Σεπτέμβρη κυκλοφόρησε ένα "πακέτο" ("Every Day Rocks"), το οποίο περιλαμβάνει (συν τις άλλοις) σε βινύλιο τους επτά πρώτους δίσκους των Uriah Heep:

➜ ...Very ‘Eavy ...Very Humble
➜ Salisbury
➜ Look At Yourself
➜ Demons And Wizards
➜ The Magicians Birthday
➜ Sweet Freedom
➜ Wonderworld

Το box set των Uriah Heep 'Every Day Rocks'
Ο Mick Box μας λέει για την κυκλοφορία: «Along with BMG we wanted to do something extra special for our fans which will give them a piece of Heep love every single day of the week. Our first 7 albums will be put on to picture disc, and there will be a t-shirt for each album to wear for each day of the week. We have also included a yearly wall planner, so that you can plan your listening or just make some notes on how the albums make you feel. This way you can keep on Heepin’ on! ‘Appy days!»

Δελτίο τύπου: «On 24th September 2021 BMG proudly release Uriah Heep’s Every Day Rocks box set. British hard rock legends Uriah Heep are one of the “big four” rock bands, along with Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath and certainly one of the most intriguing bands both musically and lyrically, to emerge from heavy rock.

The ambitious and beautifully presented Every Day Rocks box set includes the first seven albums on picture disc, plus seven accompanying t-shirts (one for every day of the week), corresponding art cards feature motivational lyrics and a calendar wall planner for planning the week’s Uriah Heep listening.

These albums are available officially for the first time as picture discs and the albums; Demons And Wizards and The Magicians Birthday feature both reimagined and original artwork by renowned fantasy artist Roger Dean.»
