Format: Audio CD
'Sweet Freedom' released in 1973 at the height of their popularity is without doubt the best written, most consistant, best played and best produced album of them all even topping Demons and Wizards in my opinion for shere overall class blowing the previous album 'Magician's Birthday' out of the water and should have set the standard for the future.
It blasts off with 'Dreamer' - a heavy loud song full of Heep delights with about everything that one could want.. a fantasic air guitar opportunity here..
(Wah Wah by the bucket load), a great start quickly followed by the classic Heep favourite 'Stealin' which is still part of their live set today. Wonderful stuff. Next up is 'One Day' a short, sharp brilliant song which leads us into the title track which is about as good as it ever got.. great songwriting and power and I can never resist singing along with the chorus line. Byron on top form here right enough!
'If I had the time' is another belter with Moog, wandering Thain bass lines and those magical multi tracked harmonies and slide guitar so unique to Heep, 'Seven Stars' rocks into the one slower tempo number 'Circus' which is a clever little tune beautifully sung with some nice harmonics from Mick Box and then no sooner has the last note faded away into the distance when we are brought down to earth with the Sledgehammer Hammond intro of the fantasic 'Pilgrim' - loud, Heavy and brilliantly sung and performed by everyone. "Love or War I could not choose, and so both I had to lose..!" What a great line to finish on.
So there you are, nothin' wrong here.. just as it should have been, great songs, great lively performance and a great production. Faultless!

you must buy,better than even the demons album,high praise indeed,if i live to be a 100 i'll never understand why this disc is never included in classic lists from the 70's,foot stompin singles,stealin and sweet freedom,classic rock via pilgrim and if i had the time,the beautiful circus and dreamer which crams every uriah trick in the book into one song,probably the last classic byron album

'cause the first time I listened to them, in 1981, I was 5, and I loved them right from the beginning, plus they're somehow interweaved with happy chilhood memories. Now, at 33 going on 34, I still absolutely adore them and that should count for something. This album is absolutely amazing, I love it, it's a masterpiece, I definately recommend it. :)

To all the Uriah Heep lovers: Do you know where I can find the other version of Stealin', with the somewhat different solo guitar? It's not a live version, I have it on tape, but I can't find it anywhere! I think it was released as single... Thanks!

Format: Audio CD
I love Heep they are a band that to me were amazing live and stood up against any good rock band. But their studio work wasnt as good as it should of been now I cant say too much because I only own six albums . and This is the best of the late 70`s era. I saw them on the Sweet freedom tour and loved it!! this album is what I would call a kick ass rock album, again selling very well ( shame about the US release of their single Stealin ) radio people didnt like the `done me the ranchers daughter `line , sounds tame to todays standards but harmed air play.the next album Wonderworld well! great tour ,but album not so strong a few good tracks though!. If you want to try some Heep then start here or dip further back to Demons or Magicians birthday, this remastered is the dogs!Mick Box guitars, Ken Hensley keyboards, Lee Kerslake drums,David Byron vocals and Gary (the thin man) Thain bass. this line cut Demons,Magicians,Live,Freedom and Wonderworld.also six bonus tracks.

Format: Audio CD
A great line up with one of the master bass players and some fantastic song writing.

An album from the end of the golden period where they could do no wrong except in the music press.

It shows that some bands just knew how to play. Sweet Freedom, One Day & Stealin' all on one budget album - What fantastic value for an album that has stood the test of time.

Possible not quite up there with a few others by UH but a 5 star album all the same.

If you like this though, why no also try "into the wild" for a more modern variation of a similar theme. Perhaps Ken Hensley's lyrics are better here but the production values on the modern album are even better.

Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
A very eagerly awaiting release back in 1973 as the David Byron fronted band was at its peak after the very successful `Demon & Wizards' and `Magician's Birthday' albums. I no longer have my original vinyl as completely worn out but still have the pre-release `Stealin/Sunshine' single, which is still is in excellent playing condition.

There has been a continuous debate if this album was the best or the `Demons and Wizards' album from the Byron era. Clearly musical tastes differ and my view was then and still is today that the Demons and Wizards album slightly edges this on overall on song quality consistency. No doubt others will disagree.

I can recall some quality problems on the first batch of the original album release particularly on the first track `Dreamer giving a few loud clicks and even jumping the groove in places. Back then it was very debatable if it was the record and/or the poor quality of the record deck. I have been playing the 1990 Castle release of the album before purchasing this re-issue on vinyl. I never purchased the Sanctuary expanded 2003 version because I thought, unlike the other expanded releases; it did not offer any major advantages with the extra tracks. The sound quality of the 1990 CD version is very reasonable for a digital format.

So after 37years I have the album again on vinyl and holding this substantial, artistic package rather than a small square piece of plastic CD packaging is again very rewarding. The cover has been perfectly restored even with the confusing aspect of the record being accessed from the inner side of the double gatefold cover. This still confuses me on picking the album to play with the mind on autopilot but it is a very effective design for stopping the vinyl from accidentally falling out of the cover.
