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'

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.

How could you not like this album. I used to wait for Uriah Heep albums to come out ever since my brother sent home a copy of their first album. It was the American release as he was in the navy doing gun line duty in Vietnam and he used to get all these great albums from the Americans he mixed with. I was instantly a Uriah Heep fan from 1970 onwards. I have this album on vinyl when it was released, then replaced it with the cd when it came out, and now this remastered version. I hope they don't come up with another format as enough is enough. It is just so good to hear your music cooked to perfection, just like this remastered edition. Some people go on about the warmth of vinyl but if you call hissing popping and crackling, warmth then you are welcome to it. With the advent of remastering old albums on cd you can hear your favorite music as crystal clear pleasing sound, even hearing little guitar and other instrumental sounds that you didn't know existed. If you love your Heep sound, I thoroughly recommend you purchase this remastered version of one of the greatest albums ever released. Oh yeah this one has the best version of Bird Of Prey on it. I used it to manipulate very 'eavy back to the American version which I preferred. Stop reading this you should be buying this excellent album.

I've owned every copy of every album produced with the original lineup since back in the 70's. I purchased this copy because of the extra songs. I've noticed this is done to all of the original releases. Smart way to get me to buy the albums again. It is worth it, though. I'm finding some excellent Heep songs I've never heard before. The one thing about this album that is different from the original is that Paradise/The Spell is cut in half. If you love that song, like I do, then you'll need to keep your original. If you're new to Heep, then buy both. It's worth the money.

First bought the LP in 1972. Stunning then still spectacular. Uriah Heep is heavy guitar, organ and acoustic driven music with introspective lyrics. This is clearly one of the top 50 rock albums of all time. Heep is a band long on talent and short on recognition. Ken Hensley is one of the great musicians in the rock era. David Byron wails it as if the devil was on his trail. Which ultimately seemed to be the case. Mick Box is a respectable lead guitarist. Gary Thain an underrated bass player who also had his demons. But for a moment in time, this album captured musical magic. Get it, you will not be disappointed and will grow to love it.

I hadn't listened to Uriah Heep since high school, many years ago, and was surprised at how well the band's music holds up today. My favorite albumn is still Magician's Birthday, but Demons and Wizards comes in a very close secont
