Format: Audio CD
This was the last Heep album to feature David Byron's unique vocals before he was replaced by the somewhat different singing style of John Lawton.
As a keen 16 year old Uriah Heep fan, I rember buying this record on the day of release and rushing home to play it. Hmmmm ... after 'Return to Fantasy' which was a respectable quite heavy effort, I remember being a little bit perplexed as to what was going on here. It opens with (what turned out to be) John Wetton and Ken Hensley singing 'One Way or Another' which is an Ok song but where was Mr Byron? Eventually though David arrives and gives a good account of his talents with 'Weep in Silence' which is probably the best track on the album.
As for the rest, it's all a bit muddled in styles - more of a compilation than an album in it's own right.. 'Can't keep a good band down' wouldn't have been out of place on RTF, 'Confession' would have more than suited a methodist Hymnal and 'Can't Stop Singing' would have been more than suited to the wheelie bin..'awful'!
'Make a little Love' ain't too bad with some nice slide guitar from Hensley but suffers from what is an overall downside of the album and that is a rather poor mix with the drums often drowning everything out. No sign of Gerry Bron on this one as apparently it was produced by the band themselves. I don't think that anything from this is included in the band's live set today which speaks volumes.
To sum up then, not the best album to come from Uriah Heep but still some good tunes here but I must admit I don't play it that often these days.. Wonderworld and RTF were much better.. and I never liked the cover art much either, what was all that about?

Format: Audio CD
In 1976 Uriah Heep was a total mess. David Byron was just about to be sacked (again) and the year before Ken Hensley (cause of Byrons behaviour and drug abuse) had even left the band before Gerry Bron persuaded him to come back again. Upon release High And Mighty wasn't what Heep fans expected. It wasn't heavy and it didn't really conatin any big rockers.

On the album the band (or rather Hensley who more or less considered this as a kind of solo record) tries different styles and sound more MOR than they ever did before (or after). Back in '76 I thought this was a bit disapointening, but listening to it now in it's remastered and expanded format it's really not as bad as I once thought.

Some of the reason for this is that it has perhaps aged better than say 'Return To Fantasy' as it doesn't sound that dated. And there is some really good tracks here even if the album itself is an uneven affair. The first track, One Way or Another, even has John Weetton and Ken Hensley on main vocal, but it's still pretty good and listening to it now I seem to appreciate the variations on the record a lot more than in 76. I guess age is a good thing in some ways...

As for the bonustracks, and there's quite a lot of em here, it's not that interesting as I first had hoped. Name of the Game is quite enjoyable and sounds like Heep around 73/74. But there's also 4 Ken Hensley demos mostly of the albumtracks but with other titles making you believe this is new tracks when you see the tracklisting. A bit confusing in other words. Still at a real bargain price High and Mighty is well worth checking out if you are a Heep fan. And it's still way better than some of the non Byron albums that would follow (Innocent Victim, Fallen Angel etc).

Uriah Heep is one of those bands that would have been in the eternal rock pantheon if they had quit while the going was good (first 5 albums). This album isn't one of the first five. It's still Uriah Heep, but the song material is much worse than their iconic hits. Good album for the fans and the collectors, but if you're new to the band you're better off with a greatest hits collection

not every ones favorite byron era heep lp but i think its a classic the first side is just terrific the second side of the old vinyl is the ones that lets the album slip a little but these unusual cuts lend to lots of listening showing heep not just as out rockers but as sensitive composers aswell,

This was the turning point for Uriah Heep, being the last album featuring the great David Byron, but not the best album they produced. Still, it has some good tracks and a pop at the music critics who never took to them (sad gits!).
