Editorial Reviews

Heep hit Top 40 with this 1973 concert album-that's because these prog-metal rockers were one of the best live bands around. They do scorching versions of their hits Easy Livin' and Sweet Lorraine plus Circle of Hands; Gypsy; Look at Yourself , and more!

Customer Reviews

One of the best live recordings of any band, in my opinion.
Alan A. Zurawski
Also worth mentioning the fact of having been the first Western band to play in the Soviet Union in the era of Glassnote.
Hiram Gomez Pardo
It was on the album, it should have been included on the CD.

From all the early seventies live double hard rock albums, most people would reckon that Deep Purple's 'Made in Japan' comes out top of the heap. But to this old dog Uriah Heep's live album just pips it at the post. Both were released by their record companies within six months of each other; Deep Purple's effort coming in December of 1972, while Uriah Heep's came in May of the following year. Both came with the same mass marketing including the special price tag of two LPs for the equivalent of one. Both albums pushed their respective bands into the superstar division. And, remarkably in similar fashion, both bands would fire their lead vocalist and bassist within a couple of years.

Deep Purple's `Made in Japan' consisted of a complete concert, only seven songs, drawing heavily on their last album, at the time `Machine Head', but missed out on the encores (until they were later added on when the album was re-mastered for CD, and a very worthy addition they are, too). `Made in Japan' also included `The Mule', which is basically a 10-minute drum solo. No matter how good Mr. Paice is, how many times do you want to listen to a drum solo? Final track on `Made in Japan' is `Space Truckin', which, at twenty odd minutes, took up the whole of side four in the days of vinyl. Although it starts out in fine rockin' style, the final fifteen minutes of everybody soloing against everybody else was very exciting if you were actually at the concert, but gets just a bit tedious with the sound but no visual.

Whereas the Uriah Heep Live came in with a total of twelve songs, including three encore numbers. Sadly though, to make space for these encore numbers, four concert numbers played on that night in Birmingham, England, had to be cut and have since been lost.

I was 10 when I had a chance to listen to this album, I was lucky to be trained by fantastic musicians as they are. Uriah music is not complicated at all and that is all about. They're easy on the ear. You can hear every note, it's clear, loud and proud. Favorites: Circle Of Hands, Sweet Loraine, Sunrise. Buy this CD, even it lacked for this fantastic Medley but it must be present in every even serious collection. Master peace, stand alone with Made In Japan by Deep Purple.

What was fun about listening to this power-pact live recording is actually re-living the band's Magician's Birthday Tour I experienced in Seattle. A packed house, rockin' stuff, real trippy songs, guitar jams galore by Mr. Party himself, Mick Box, and outrageous keyboards and moog synthesisers by Ken Hensley. This show was so memorable, everyone sang along to the Rock & Roll Medley, making me feel we were all wearing Blue Suede Shoes. Someone in the Heepster's entourage should've arranged for the filming of this crazy night in Birmingham, England.

This is by far one of the best live albums of its day, alongside Made In Japan. This concert displays the original band at its height, with the gorgeous vocals of the late David Byron, who is masterful on July Morning. The band opens up with Sunrise (recently added to their set list after thirty years!), a telling song that builds with power. We sail into Sweet Lorraine, a wonderful 'Rock and Roller that you can stand up and Boogie to', as Byron tells the crowd. Traveller in Time is next, a hard-rocker that segues into the band's most popular tune, Easy Livin. These four songs are performed much as they are on the album, as Uriah Heep keeps to the faith of the songs (and proabably didn't really know how to improvise on stage, as is evident as to the tightness of the songs played in this set). Gypsy is played in its entirety, including the now left out instrumental intro, and a keyboard and drum solo is added. Tears in my Eyes displays Ken Hensley with a nice slide guitar solo. This is a classic rock album by one of the longest lasting bands in rock and roll history. Heep must've been a glory to see live at this time in their carrer...long live the memories of David Byron and Gary Thain. Long Live Heep!!

A historically underrated band, Uriah Heep has been well served with remastered versions of their albums, showing that popular acts (like Dickens) sometimes prove the critics wrong in terms of quality and longevity. This album especially.

For one thing, it's raw and truthful. Unlike other classic Seventies double-live albums, "Uriah Heep Live" was recorded one sole January night in Birmingham, England, and unlike similar albums by the Allmans, Derek and the Dominos, Led Zeppelin, and Thin Lizzy, it doesn't reveal significant overdubs or splicings. The Seventies were an age when studios and producers became name brands, and even "live" albums were stamped with their mark. "Uriah Heep Live" isn't, yet almost every track is superior to its studio incarnation.

The original 1989 CD release does not include the 'Rock 'N' Roll Medley' from the vinyl album. The 1996 Castle remaster corrected this due-to-CD-time-limitations problem with the additional track, better sound, and superb packaging. The 2003 Sanctuary remaster sounds even better (thicker, more detailed) and includes not just the complete album but an additional disc of live material mostly postdating the 1973 album. The first four tracks were originally heard as a U.S. radio show compiled from live recordings made in 1973 ("Uriah Heep Live") and 1974 (Shepperton Studios sessions). The other eight tracks come from the Shepperton Studios sessions BUT, like the two (duplicate) tracks that were included in the radio show, with tremendously improved sound quality. That is, the formerly hard-to-hear guitar parts are now as loud as they should be, and the "Wonderworld" tracks come across as they always should have--as classic Uriah Heep. The mushy echo is gone.

Uriah Heep fans should feel blessed.
