You might be wondering if this is worth getting instead of the standard version of the album. Well I don't feel I can add much to what has been written by the previous reviewers about the album itself(check the product page for the non-import version for 'about a billion reviews') except to say this is probably the best starting point for those looking to buy their first Uriah Heep album.

However the standard version is missing the bonus material, more specifically the track 'Why'.
Now normally I'm not a huge fan of the duff demos, lame out-takes and single-versions(often inferior, clumsily edited versions of the original) that make up the majority of bonus material found on 'expanded and remastered' editions, but there are exceptions and boy is this one of them. Apparently this track was unearthed while compiling this edition of the album and, such is its obscurity, that no one even knows who played bass on it.

The track itself is amazing; 10 minutes of stunning interaction between guitar, organ and bass all overlayed with the Uriah Heep's trade mark multi-part harmony backing vocals. The amazing thing is it doesn't sound like any thing else on the album and yet is so definitively 'Heep'. The Bass in particular stands out, powerful and ,at times, almost funky; it drives the piece along thrillingly.

If you don't own the album but have an interest in the music of this era (Deep Purple and Wishbone Ash come to mind) then it is an essential purchase in this form. If you already own a copy of this album without the bonus material then I suggest(and I would never normally do so) it is worth getting this version if only for 'Why'

This is a record that really qualifies as an unmitigated success. For years, I had thought Heep to be a poor man's version of Deep Purple, and in some respects, the parallels are somewhat obvious, but after re-discovering them in the past year or so, I find a group (of their time) whom really had a distinctive and consistent sound collectively as a most intriguing quality. Being their fourth release after the good and solid Look At Yourself set, Demons begins to show Ken Hensley as a major writer within the ranks of Heep. He did, after all, pen one of their best known hits in Easy Livin' and Circle of Hands, Rainbow Demon and Paradise/The Spell only further attest to this declaration. But, of course, without Byron, Box, Kerslake and Gary Thain, these ideals wouldn't have been realised. Check out the impeccable ensemble's work on tracks like Traveller in Time, Poet's Justice and the leadoff cut, The Wizard. I would say there are ,overall, some great albums by the Heepsters, but nothing can match the era of THIS group of members(72-75). The Sanctuary remaster is highly recommended, not only for the remix, but also for the bonus tracks. It gives the listener an insight into what worked for the group, and perhaps, what didn't.

Uriah Heep "Demons & Wizards" #23 (1972)

With artwork by Roger Dean, Uriah Heep brings us their biggest seller "Demons & Wizards". Two new members joined the Heep for their 4th album, drummer Lee Kerslake (from the band Gods) and bassist Gary Thain (who performed with Uriah Heep up to late '74). "Demons", starts off with the acoustic guitar before building into a classic U.H. rock number "Wizard", nice vocals by Ken Hensley. The way-wah of "Traveller In Time", the top 40 hit in "Easy Livin'", #39, with it's organ rolls and dynamic vocals by Mr. David Byron. The power ballad of "Circle Of Hands". The great vocals by Byron on "All My Life", "Rainbow Demon", is a doom sounding song, great keys by Hensley. The progressive medley "Paradise/The Spell", end the album with class. Uriah Heep never got another five star review, but still had some excellent stuff to come. Get the expanded edition, came out in 2004. The sound is awesome. 1973 brought us "Uriah Heep Live", #37 and their 5th studio offering in, "The Magician's Birthday".

So glad I purchased this remastered recording. This is Uriah Heep at their finest! Well worth the price. The extra tracks are a real treat too.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Originally released in 1972, Demons and Wizards is generally viewed as a high point in this band's career, at least for the early line-up of David Byron (vocals), Ken Hensley (keyboards) and Mick Box (guitar). The songwriting was generally strong. With the exception of the mercifully short seventh track, the melodic ideas are consistently interesting, while the keyboard-oriented arrangements result in a very full sound. The 12-minute medley Paradise / The Spell showcases the band's instrumental talents, but arguably runs on a bit too long. This edition features remastering and several bonus tracks. The main reason to prefer this edition is the sound engineering. All the instruments and vocals are crystal clear. The bonus material does not really add much. The most notable addition is the 11-minute version of Why. However, the shorter, edited versions of this track were preferable. 3.5 stars.

There is, of course, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and UFO. Then there is this early Metal Band, Uriah Heep. The early Metal of the 70s simply rock and Uriah Heep definitely pleases. The sound is crisp, fresh, and new. It is still relevant today. This album is definitely a must have in the collection of early Metal enthusiasts. If you don't have it, get it! You will not be disappointed.
