RECORDED EARLY 1970

In North America this album was released titled just 'URIAH HEEP'
with a different cover and slightly different track listing (album title was deemed too odd for American audiences & 'Lucy Blues' lyrics too daring so it was replaced by 'Bird Of Prey' which was a single b-side in Europe):
Side A
1. GYPSY
2. WALKING IN YOUR SHADOW
3. COME AWAY MELINDA
4. BIRD OF PREY (instead of "Lucy Blues")
Side B
1. DREAMMARE
2. REAL TURNED ON
3. I'LL KEEP ON TRYING
4. WAKE UP (Set Your Sights)
