5.0 out of 5 stars songs that live again 30 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
I recently revisited Uriah Heep live - bought when I was a young lad. At the time I thought it was the greatest album ever made. But as I grew older the album went to the back of my cupboard and only this year has it seen the light of day again. And it was still great. This rediscovery had me trawling through uriah heep history and buying up old and new stuff including wake the sleeper which really was good. So when I found celebration I was a little concerned. Would this detract from my love of the live album? Can songs that are re recorded ever be as good as the original? Well on the basis of this the answer is yes. These are great songs well played and beautifully produced. Bernie Shaw is a great vocalist and makes the songs his own. The accompanying dvd is fun and a great addition and the new songs are catchy rock numbers that capture the feel of this new heep. Here's to a healthy heep future

...which Amazon hasn't made clear on their product description. The CD and DVD are housed in a digipak, with a booklet which I should imagine is identical to the regular edition. I don't care for digipaks, myself, as a) I can't store them in my CD rack (!) and b) in many of those bought years ago the glue has now dried out so much that that they are starting to fall apart at the seams. However, I wanted the DVD so...

The CD has two excellent new tracks plus studio reworkings of Byron- and Lawton-era songs from the back catalogue. I am so used to hearing Bernie Shaw sing these that the CD sits very comfortably with me, although some may wonder why the band felt the need to do this. I don't know for certain, but it may be an easy way to cut through rights-ownership red-tape, as well as showcasing the current line-up. Besides which, if you wish to hear the originals there are a many compilations out there, as well as the studio albums, now all at very nice prices. As those old ads used to say, 'Why not collect them all?'!

The DVD is great fun. Recorded at Heep's 2009 Sweden Rock appearance, it is clearly edited highlights. I have some niggles with the camerawork (eg being focused too close to the fretboard in places, when they could have pulled back another foot or two) but hey, what do I know of video-editing. What I DO know is Heep's back-catalogue; this DVD is basically a live 'early greatest hits' and I do wish they'd included some other tracks. There are no songs post-Byron and it would have been great to have at least a track or two originally recorded with Bernie Shaw or Phil Lanzon. Or, for that matter, Trevor Bolder. For this, I dock a star. This may seem harsh, given that it IS a bonus disc, but it's my review, so there.

By Mr. H TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
It was back in December 1969 when keyboard player Ken Hensley was asked to join a band called Spice. Shortly thereafter the band changed its name to Uriah Heep, and a rock legend was born. However, if you'd been running a sweep five decades ago as to which of the many rock bands on the go would ultimately celebrate a fortieth anniversary, I doubt anyone would have been cheering as they drew the name Uriah Heep out of the bag.

But despite enduring fifteen lineups, seven drummers, six vocalists, six bass players, five keyboard players as well as deaths, drugs, enough mayhem to fill a quadrilogy of Spinal Taps and a solitary guitarist -- sole founding member Mick Box -- the band is still here. When many a more critically acclaimed band has fallen by the wayside, Uriah Heep has toured their backsides off across the rock-starved former Soviet Republics and beyond.

In 2008, they released their 21st studio album, Wake The Sleeper, their first studio album in 10 years, which saw them getting the kind of praise that eluded them in the seventies. So it's strange to relate that their fortieth anniversary album, Celebration, is largely a set of re-recordings from their early years.

There are two new tracks in amongst the fourteen songs, and both "Only Human" and "Corridors Of Madness" would have sat happily on the Wake The Sleeper release. Both solid rockers with the Uriah Heep trademark sound, they're a hybrid of progressive rock and classic rock set well in place.

I suppose that fans may be interested to hear how "new" vocalist Bernie Shaw (twenty-two years a member, and counting!) gets on with the old material, but then he's sung them thousands of times in concert and on an array of live releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars Never Mess with the Originals 15 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
The Classic Uriah Heep Line Up in the 70's of David Byron,Ken Hensley,Lee Kerslake ,Mick Box and Gary Thain will NEVER BE REPLACED as they were the Definitive Band.
Bernie Shaw is a Fantastic Rock Vocalist ,No Question and his work on the WAKE THE SLEEPER and INTO THE FIRE Albums are Exemplary.
The Trouble Here is that Reworking Classic Originals by Different Line Ups with Bands do not sound the Same.
EASY LIVIN ,THE WIZARD and EASY LIVIN will never be bettered than when David Byron and Ken Hensley were in the Band so why Rework Them.
Bernie Shaw is Not David Byron .
Another Example of this is SMOKE ON THE WATER with Ian Gillan on Vocals by Deep Purple spoilt by David Coverdale Later.
But can you Imagine Ian Gillan doing the Vocals on BURN and not David Coverdale.
There lies the Question.
