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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Uriah Mott Live August 22, 2004
Format:Audio 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The band at its height of fame March 7, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Classic Live Set October 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
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!!

5.0 out of 5 stars the best live album ever October 1, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heep's first live output January 13, 2002
By Peter
Format:Audio CD
Hot on the heels of their genre forerunners Deep Purple, Uriah Heep hastened to capitalize on the success of Made in Japan with a double live album of their own within the very same year. Notwithstanding the obvious press comparisons with Purple, Heep's only live outing during their artistic zenith (the '74 '75 and '79 concerts would be released some time later, the first two only a few years ago) is altogether different and should not be analogized with Made in Japan. Unlike the latter, Heep's songs in Live 1973 are much closer representations of their studio recordings than Purple's renditions which typically deviated from the studio versions to a substantial degree through their legendary jams. That Heep largely adheres to the original recordings is wise, for they cannot improvise like Purple; while all capable musicians in their own right (especially in this classic lineup with the incomparable Gary Thain), their jams come across as loose, disorganized solos, not as a cohesive organic unit like Purple. Thus, Live 1973's one foray into extended improvisation- "Gypsy"- is largely a failure which makes one yearn for the resumption of the song's third verse halfway into Lee Kerslake's meandering drum solo; Heep simply cannot attain the splendid guitar/keyboard interplay of Purple's "Wring that Neck." Nevertheless, this is not a vice for the band, for Heep's greatest asset is songwriting, and their chief distinction from their more technically gifted metal peers like Purple in the 1970's is in their unique and unrivaled ability to blend heavy metal with mystical art rock.
