No.13 x 2010
This guy, besides being the voice of Uriah Heep for a while, is also one of the men behind the cosmic masterpiece The Ultimate Warlord of 1978, as one half of the brief group The Warlords with Peter Green (not that Peter Green though).
And later during the following year of 1979, also together with Peter Green, they released the album Super Nova as Intergalactic Orchestra, which is even harder to get your hands on than the Warlord-single.
With a resume like that in your bag you can't really go wrong, right? And so in the same year as The Warlords hit the discoteques, Byrons solo debut hit the racks with a curious blend of blues rock trivialities and a black sheep in the form of proto-italo afro rocker African Breeze. Being a perfect blend of of the seemingly unlikely career personas Byron was juggling at the time, this track hits hard with all the right moves, and I'm amazed I didn't hear of this sooner.
It's much likely that this is the ace of secret weapons up many discjockeys sleeves.
