Format: Audio CD
I first came across Uriah Heep's music in my local library, from where I borrowed High And Mighty for a few pence. I was not particularly impressed.

Then, a few months later, I heard Demons And Wizards at a friend's house: I was knocked out by the combination of powerful vocals (David Byron), the inventive guitar work (Mick Box), the roaming bass lines (Gary Thain, who died in 1975), and of course the mighty Hammond organ assault of Ken Hensley (as well as his occasional slide guitar): and more than that, the quality of the songs, and even the album cover! I remember the first time I heard Circle Of Hands, a particularly intense hard rock ballad of the sort that Uriah Heep specialised in. I couldn't imagine hearing anything better (this reviewer was a teenager into Dungeons and Dragons), but then came the superb Rainbow Demon. If there is one criticism of this CD, it is that these two tracks are not on it. But everything else is present and correct. And it is clear that, creatively and commercially, Uriah Heep peaked in the early Seventies with the forementioned line-up.

Apparently Uriah Heep were never popular with the critics, who tended to prefer their peers such as Black Sabbath and Deep Purple. Perhaps their image was considered weaker, their sound more derivative, even overly melodic for a hard rock group. But their seventies material has aged surprisingly well. A lot of their best songs are in 6/8 time, which set them apart from their contemporaries: these include Look At Yourself, Easy Living, Blind Eye, Stealin' and more. Musically and lyrically they were, perhaps, naive compared to their contemporaries, though in a good way. And the harmonies are awesome!
They are still going of course, though only Mick Box remains of the classic line-up.

Mick Box's guitar keep Heep apart from other bands and while the early stuff is excellent some of the later stuff is decidedly dodgy. Wizards gives some excellent and some not so excellent tracks. If you are a heep fan you will enjoy this cd.

This selection is truly the best of the very best. The recording is excellent and just one listening will bring back the shivers up your spine. Can't find any current artists to match up with the 70s groups.

First c/d of the two is the old stuff with Byron, the original Best of Uriah Heep has better versions of some tracks so if you like the old stuff i would buy that instead. I bought this for the second cd which has the post Byron material with the numerous line ups and singers. This gives a good account of this era and is worth listening to.

Uriah Heep have so many great songs that it will always be difficult to release a Best of. Wizards is definitely a walk through their lustrous history. The albums include all their hits, which is great. I bought the Wizards because one of my favourits, 'Hanging tree' is on it. I still think many good songs have been left out. If you're not familiar with Uriah Heep, the Wizards is a good start to get to know them.

If you know Uriah Heep then you don't need to read a review - if you have never heard of them then anything I say won't be of help.
