Uriah Heep – Look at Yourself

Look at Yourself is the third album by British rock band Uriah Heep released in 1971.

My wife and I have the same album, naturally hers is in better shape than mine. This album has a loud rock sound along with some quieter moments. Uriah Heep is classified as progressive rock and heavy metal.

Rock Covers by Taschen books

I received this book as a Fathers Day gift from my daughter. 

There are approximately 750 rock covers in this book ranging from well known bands and the very obscure. Cover album is Pink Floyd and the back cover is Joe Cocker.

I’ve got many record albums in my collection that are highlighted in this book. The interesting part of this book is the number of bands from the 70’s that I’ve never heard of. I went to iTunes to look some of them up and the bands are very excellent and now I want to buy some online.
