Uriah Heep - 'Pilgrim' (Extended Version)

A pilgrim at the grey of dawn
Leaving in the mist of morning
On his journey of goodness
Heaven sent, God blessed

Pilgrim laughing at the world
Spreading joy at the touch of his hand
Wiping out all the misery
Making love and history

Those of us who don't know war
We shouldn't try to make it
'Cause so many did and even more died
Do you think you could take it

'Cause Love lies waiting at our back door
Such a beautiful matter of fact
Life's like an apple with love as the core
And I'll tell you 'bout that

Just a man in my prime
Love was there but I had no time
I was cheered and adored
And I thought fame was all the world
Battles won and victory cheers
Were the sounds I'd heard for years
But the woman I really loved
Was losing me to all this blood
I only knew I had to win
And build a world where I was king
But leaders come and leaders go
And that's the truth I came to know
Love or war I could not choose
And so both I had to lose



Ένας από τους ύμνους των Uriah Heep και ολάκερης της δεκαετίας του εβδομήντα. "Pilgrim". Το γνωρίσαμε από τον πέμπτο (και υπέροχο) δίσκο των Uriah Heep "Sweet Freedom" που κυκλοφόρησε τον Σεπτέμβριο του 1973 (το επιλογικό τραγούδι). Μουσική του Ken Hensley και στίχοι του David Byron. 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.»
