Monday Music "Hold your Head up" By Argent

I am getting back into the swing of the routine, today I started "Day shift", I really don't like it, usually from a traffic standpoint and on days my employer is a totally different company than at night.  At night we just get the job done, on days there is a lot of interference from others including all the bosses walking around to the busybodies getting into your business.  I will wait and see how this goes today.
     I decided to go with "Argent" Hold your head up high.....I like the instrumentals in this song and it is a good driving song to listen to.
    


  
All Together Now, released in 1972, was the third album recorded by British rock band Argent. It was Argent's first hit album and features their most successful single "Hold Your Head Up," which reached number five in both the U.K. and U.S. singles charts. Other featured songs include "Tragedy," "I Am the Dance of Ages" and "He's a Dynamo."
The 1997 compact disc re-release of All Together Now by KOCH Records features an additional seven tracks not included on the original seven-track vinyl record. The bonus tracks include "God Gave Rock and Roll to You", one of Argent's best-known songs due to the popular cover/remake by Kiss. In 2009, for their reunion, Mr. Big recorded a cover of "Hold Your Head Up" and played it throughout the tour. Uriah Heep also covered the song on their 1989 album Raging Silence.
In the Q & Mojo Classic Special Edition Pink Floyd & The Story of Prog Rock, the album came thirty-third in its list of "40 Cosmic Rock Albums".
Steppenwolf covered "Hold Your Head Up" on their 1982 album Wolftracks.

  1. Great song.

    I had to do some research after watching. The bass player - Jim Rodford - looked so much like Carmine Appice (albeit with lighter-colored hair) I had to know who he was.
