In 1977 Lady In Black topped the German charts for 13 weeks, keeping Paul McCartney's Mull of Kintyre off the number one spot, a feat which earned Uriah Heep the Golden Lion award, the German equivalent of a Brit Award [http://www.uriah-heep.com/librel.html.] - Vladimir, Moscow, RussiaVladimir - Moscow, Russia Federation
What a great song! I have been a fan of Uriah Heep since I was in High School back in Timisoara. I actually saw them after the years of glory a couple of times; one time in Chicago and the last time they played in a bar in Aurora, Illinois. What a great treat that was for I was just a few steps away. Great band, great music!Mariana - Timisoara, Romania
