In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

Review of the rather splendid `Hornal` album is in the works too.

There is a three-part article coming up for E.L.O (Eldorado, A New World Record and Out Of The Blue). Look out for it soon.

Stoke City condemned 2 relegation. Who is the new manager? Paul Lambert.

Agreed Reyno about Clyde Best, further back is the story of Walter Tull which is quite heartbreaking, links to Northampton and lived in Rushden.

Big loss is Cyrille, only short time at Wolves, but I was at the Peterborough game where he scored the last minute winner, Cyrille and Laurie C, what a team.

I think many people forget guys like West Ham's Clyde Best whenever the subject of the impact of black footballers in the English game crops up. He was just as good as the West Brom trio years b4

Cyrille was part of the ground breaking so called 'three degrees' who did so much to break down racial barriers in Football back in the late 70's.R.I.P

Background
This band and their early discography were part of my rock 'diet' back in the early 70's. Our household contained all their albums, and I soaked them up like a sponge. During 1973, Heep released two albums; the 'Double Live' extravaganza which was released in April/May 1973, and this studio LP 'Sweet Freedom' which followed in September of that year. 'Sweet Freedom' would be the first of their albums to show a commercial angle, which they would pursue even more on their next albums. With songs like the popular and cheeky 'Stealin' and the uptempo but melodic 'Seven Stars', the seed was sown. Heep would return with 1974's 'Wonderworld', but by then, Uriah Heep were having internal issues and things would soon go south for the band.

This morning I was running errands and I drove by an empty lot and remembered there was a club/ bar in that location. It was in a weird residential strip mall since torn down and nothing but Prairie grass growing now, but a lot metal bands (I seem to remember Testament?) and I think UFO and not so metal Molly Hatchet played there at one time. I do remember Victory, the German band was on the bill (with Heep and was Rouge Male on the list too?) I dunno, long time ago. I love the early Heep stuff and 'Stealin'' is magnificent. Nice choice G.
