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.
