Song of the Week - Come Away Melinda by Uriah Heep

From heavy metal pioneers Uriah Heep. I actually own this record and I remember liking it. According to Wikipedia the album was near universally panned when it was released. They quote Melissa Mills, who began her review, "If this group makes it I'll have to commit suicide. From the first note you know you don't want to hear any more." They went on to release 22 albums. I wonder how Ms Mills is doing. "Come Away Melinda" is a classic post apocalyptic heavy metal ballad.
