Going for the jugular in style,
This review is from: Look At Yourself (Audio CD)
After the grand ambition of 'Salisbury' and before the Wizardworld era, UH
found time to make an album on which they simply rocked out. This is it. A collection of love songs with few cliches, the music is intense, at times white-hot. Though the whole band are on top form, the album is a particular triumph for Ken Hensley, whose gothic organ runs are prominent for most of its duration. His galloping rhythms on the title track herald a marvellous, high-adrenaline approach. 'July Morning' is the joker in the pack, an eerie number from the school of 'Stairway To Heaven' epics, though it predates that recording and, no, it doesn't sound the same. A couple of the tracks slow the tempo a little, serving as interludes, but this is essentially an example of why rock bands are at their best when they just do what comes naturally.

great review - cheers!
arguably stairway to heaven predates july morning.
stairway was recorded between december 1970 - march 1971.
heep did not begin recording july morning until july 1971 (although they released look at yourself in sept in the U.S. in september '71, october '71 for the U.K release, and zep did not release their album until november '71).
