Baxter’s Attic, Uriah Heep – “Easy Livin”
Some vintage stuff from Uriah Heep's "Demons and Wizards" album released in 1972 in the Attic this morning. Uriah Heep was a pioneer in the heavy metal category. I had this album on 8 track (kids, ask your parents) and probably went through a few of them...
Baxter’s Attic, The Doors “When the Music’s Over”

Baxter’s Attic, REO Speedwagon “157 Riverside Ave”
In the Attic this morning, one of the most rocking songs Reo ever did.  After this album, their debut, they seemed to move into the ballad thing.  157 Riverside Ave was the Connecticut address the band stayed at while recording their debut album...
Baxter’s Attic, Black Sabbath “Sweet Leaf”
In the Attic this morning, Black Sabbath's marijuana anthem "Sweet Leaf".  Written by the entire band, "Sweet Leaf" got its name from an Irish cigarette slogan.  The band thought that would be a good name for marijuana.  This video is pret…
