4.0 out of 5 stars Innovative music., 22 Dec. 2006
This review is from: Quatermass (Audio CD)
This album is unusual in two ways, firstly it is a three piece and not the conventional 4 or 5 piece as the other pioneering bands were at the time. Secondaly it contains no guitars (excluding bass). This album is original and fresh, even today, with a very tight, precise drummer in Mick Underwood. Pete Robinson is a great keyboard player who can take on many styles and can justafiable be classes as in the same league as Jon Lord and Don Airey. Johnny Gustafson as well as being one of the top pick bass players has, in my opinion, one of the best rock voices out there and whose tallants were never truely recognised.

As another reviewer said the songs are not instanly memourable (except black sheep of the family) but it is a very rewarding album to listen to and definitly questions rocks reliance on guitars.

This ablum is a great addition to any rock collection and is no longer given its due credit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Quo masterpiece., 22 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Live (Audio CD)
There is not much to say about this album other than it is very good.

It is really enjoyable to listen to whether you are into hard rock or pop/rock and surely that defines how good an album is.

For a comparison I rate it up there with 'Whitesnake Live in the Heart of the City'and Deep Purple's 'Made in Japan' althought it is not quite as good as 'Black Night in Denmark: Deep Purple at the K.B. Hallen 1972' but better that Led Zeppelin's 'How the west was won'.

All in all this is a good live album that is worth owning.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unjustafiably unknown album., 16 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Demons and Wizards (Audio CD)
I bought this album because I heard that Heep had supported Deep Purple on tour once and I am bloody glad I did. This is an excellent album with instant corkers such as Easy Livin', Rainbow Demon and The Wizard as well as more subtle tracks that will grow on the listener such as Traveler in Time, Paradise and my personal favourite The Spell.
The rythum and bass section of Lee Kerslake and Gary Thain respectively is excellent. Mick Box churns out simple but satisfying riffs on lead guitar, Ken Hensley's Organ (and occasional guitar) and David Byron's vocals intertwine beautifully with the amazing harmonised backing vocals provided by the rest of the band,
This is not a HARD rock album but is certainly a classic. It is easy to listen too and extreemly pleasureable and has hooked me on Uriah Heep and caused me to buy another 10 of their albums.
If you are a classic rock fan and havn't heard Heep and want a change you can't go wrong with this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great Live album, 30 Jun. 2006
Yes 'Made in Japan' is great but in my opinion this is Better!!! Gillan's Voice is better for a start. Lord and Blackmore are as usual incredable with Paice beating the hell out of his drum kit. I also think that Roger Glover's bass sound on this is better as well. The set list is very similar to 'Made in Japan'.

Although I am comparing this to 'Made in Japan' as the bench mark it should really be the other way round.

I own both and in comparison to 'Black night in Denmark 72' I found 'Made in Japan' slightly dissapointing.

So to round off if in doubt buy this you won't be dissapointed.
