Thursday, time for a cover, it will also be the last cover of 2019.
"Easy Livin'" is a song by the British rock band URIAH HEEP, released as the second single from their 1972 album "Demons And Wizards". The band also shot a basic music video for the song in 1972. It was the band's first hit in the United States and the only top 40 hit there, peaking at No. 39 on the Billboard Hot 100 in September 1972.
Philadelphia psych rock quintet RUBY THE HATCHET has premiered a cover of URIAH HEEPs 1972 “Easy Livin’” via a new music video, see it below. A staple of their recent live sets, the band recorded the cover at Retro City Studios in NJ.
The group commented on the cover:
“URIAH HEEP is a band favorite and still an unsung hero of sorts in our opinion. Many of their songs make our karaoke cuts, but Easy Livin’ was especially fun to figure out now that we have been toying with live three part harmonies. All of the high notes in our cover are vocally supported by Johnny, and of course Owen…still trying to put a mic in front of Lake. Plus, when you have someone like Sean playing organ, a Heep cover is a must.”
Enjoy today's tune. Recorded May 21st, 2019 by Joe Boldizar at Retro City Studios in Germantown, PA. Original song by Uriah Heep (1972).
