"Salisbury" was Uriah Heep's sophomore effort, and more than their debut #titled "Very 'Eavy, Very 'Umble in Britain, but "Uriah Heep" in the US#, it features the mix of disparate elements that was Heep's hallmark. "The Park" is almost meditative, with Byron's vocals soaring above acoustic guitar and organ -- then breaking into an almost jazzy interlude, before returning to the initial theme; "Lady in Black" begins acoustically and builds to a driving rocker. "Time to Live" has Mick Box doing some tasty wah-wah work and crunching through a succession of power chords. And then there's the title track, an EXCELLENT piece of prog rock. Uriah Heep is primarily a cult band these days: if you're a fan, you've probably been one for 40 years, and listening to "Salisbury" you quickly understand why so many of us really liked Heep all those years ago. These guys were right up there with Zep, Sabbath, Yes, and Deep Purple -- until they weren't . "Salisbury" is good, and maybe even very good -- maybe not the top of the Heep #that'd be "Demons and Wizards" or "Magician's Birthday# but you can see it from here.
