Ever since watching that Great Pretender documentary about Freddie Mercury's solo work, I have become interested in checking out his solo work, particularly his Barcelona album with Monsterrat Caballe. And hearing this excellent performance of How Can I Go On, it makes good justification to hear the rest of the album beyond that popular title track.

There are some bands that I really should spend more time listening to them.
And with the recent passing of the bassist, Trevor Bolder, and having just heard this excellent track from such a die-hard classic rock fan of a friend, I think Uriah Heep have just become one of those bands I really need to hear more from.
I've only really heard Easy Livin', from them, on some cheap rock compilation many years ago, and only heard Bolder's work on the classic Hunky Dory album, from David Bowie .
