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 album had a huge impact on me when I first heard it in '72. Even better now. Usually when I listen to an album I liked from the past, I'm a little disappointed. Not this one. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer

One of my favourite album out of Heep with lots of nice songs. For me David Byron is best ever vocalist.
Thanks to Amazon all my orders arrive in time even earlier.
