Salisbury songs Product Information
Salisbury album for sale by Uriah Heep was released Mar 20, 1989 on the Mercury label. With their third release (and second album of 1971), SALISBURY, Uriah Heep issued their first real ambitious work. While their first couple of albums (URIAH HEEP and LOOK AT YOURSELF) were cut from the same monolithic blues-metal cloth as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, it was with SALISBURY that David Byron and co. let their admiration of progressive rock seep in--most notably on the album closing, over 16-minute title track, which featured a 26-piece orchestra. ...See Full Description

||Rock and Jazz hit head on|
Take jazz and add the power of rock- "BAM" Just pure enjoyment.

||Heep's Underappreciated Second Effort|
This is a very good follow up to the first album, similiar style but a little more highbrow, more sophisticated, ahead of it's time. It really stretched the boundaries of rock as it existed at the time. One of the first to combine orchestral type production values and rock and roll with success (Salisbury).

||U.K. version is an excellent album from Classic Rock era!|
...(American version as well...). The only difference between the British and the American versions is that the first album has the song “Bird Of Prey” while the American album has “Simon The Bullet Freak” instead. “Bird Of Prey” is a gem. David Byron’s voice achieves extremely high tones with so much power! Obviously helped by Mick Box heavily distorted electric guitar. “The Park” is a beautiful song played with two acoustic guitars. Byron sings in an angelic way. It has an original solo done by Mick Box (electric guitar) and by Ken Hensley (keyboards) towards the end of the track. Both of them play this section with the same notes at the same time creating an original sound similar to jazz. This CD also contains the most famous song from Uriah Heep: “Lady In Black” is another beautiful track with the presence of many acoustic guitars and a melodic way of singing. The final cut is the most complex song, almost progressive rock. A perfect composition that lasts for 16 minutes. The band sounds perfectly well with the help of John Fiddy on brass and woodwind. It really looks like an orchestra. Every musician plays extraordinary: Ken Hensley creating such a powerful atmosphere with his organ chords, Mick Box’s wah-pedal soloing, Paul Newton’s walking bass, Keith Baker on drums, and of course one of the best voices of hard rock. The rest of the tracks are very good hard rockers. I haven’t got a personal favorite cut, perhaps “Bird Of Prey” and “Salisbury”. Check out for the birds singing in “The Park”!

||Still very 'eavy!|
This lp kinda freaked me out when I was 14. But I do know this: Mick Box could flat-out rock & roll your socks off with his guitar playing! His solo in "Salisbury" still blows me away. Mick's use of the wah pedal is his signature. I eagerly say Mick is the best metal guitarist that lives on his wah. His solo's never grow old to me. I give a B- for imagination & creativeness. I give an A- to performances offered. Mick Box Rox!
