I didn't know how to start my commentary so
great is my joy to see the group with David Byron living (in
addition to the book... by Jeff Perkins) and Gary Thain !
The pure and the unconditional fans (of which I
belong towards and against all) can understand what represents
this gigantic work.
I recover some sensations of
"yesterday" and always motivate me more (if necesserary)
to say that Uriah Heep is the pionier of a lot of tendency and
again and always the best group in the World.
I have always the personal impresion that Uriah
Heep is mine... and the advantage is that all fans are part of my
family ...is'n it ? I write with my tripe and my heart because the
band is a part in the good and the bad time of my life.
I takes advantage to return homage to Mick and
Lee for their perseverance to make live this group more than ever.
Indeed the band after so many revival is best that one can do
after such a history.
And for that a very big admiration for Bernie
Shaw, the only voice that we can find after David Byron (personal
judgment of course), Trevor Bolder, what of class and Phil Lanzon
to replace Ken Hensley in a masterly way ... not easy.
Thank you to all fans, producers and workers to
share these moments of real happiness.
I have just received the DVD set, March 30, 2004. I negan by
preparing a steak, corn-on-the-cob, rice and strawberry cheesecake dinner
for my 14 year old son and myself. I told him to go and get the
mail and he brought back in the package I ordered at the beginning
of the month. I began playing the DVD immedeately. I am in awe.
This is a majix that cannot be beat. Having been a fan of Uriah
Heep since 1973, with 4 concerts under my belt... Return to
Fantasy Tour with Byron and Wetton, Firefly Tour with Lawton and
Boulder, Jethro Tull and Heep October 1978, and the Raging
Silence Tour with Shaw and Lanzon... I can attest that this is a
collection that can not be missed. On the second DVD it states,
"This is not professional quality... it's either this, or
nothing at all." This is not an understatement. Look past the
quality of the VHS and look for the magic of the times.
I had wanted to see Gary Thain during the WonderWorld Tour in late
1975, but, had missed that show in Germany. However, I saw as a
first ever concert, David Byron and John Wetton for the Return to
Fantasy Tour on Friday February 20, 1976 in Mannheim Germany. To
see Wetton and Byron and the rest of the boys on this DVD set is a
GODSEND to any Heep fan.
Let's see if the tape recording I did of the Firefly March 28th
concert is produced as well.

long-awaited release. There's nothing that can be done as I live

I had time to observe the reaction to this release in the West
reading the various
comments on the forum.
At first sight I could agree with some
of them. By this I mean some of the attacks by founders in
connection with overdub sound, etc.
However very soon I have understood that it was made correctly. I
need to be guided by those members of a fanclub who already have
these records and have done
for a long time. The absolute majority of Uriah Heep fans all over
the world were waiting for this issue very much and for a long time.

In my opinion it is the most impressive
film. Overdubs with high quality sound came about as the
original sound did not correspond to the director's demands. And
this successful decision has
allowed authors of the film to captivate viewers instantly. This
not absolutely new and it was used many times before this film. I am
that it will be done many times in the future too. It is the
As to the other material it is more than
magnificent. Each frame provokes
in you a mass of memories, associations and pleasures. Undoubtedly
it is very successful job. Also may I pass on the appreciation from
all Russian fans.
Please understand that Russia likes and
knows Uriah Heep as much as the
west. Russians never had their own opportunities to have something
and consequently Russian fans value the DVD greatly
Justice has triumphed! Thanks a lot!

Now I got my DVD from the Byron Era I have to say what for a
perfect package it is. Great book written by Bob and good photos of
the Band. It’s really “holy”! Now the music: The Shepperton
footage I knew from earlier days (VHS-Video) but the rest is new for
me and so interesting. I prefer the USA-footage from 1975
(Disc 1). David, the real performer and his singing was great.The
quality of the sound is very good. On disc 2 I prefer Sweet
Lorraine, Micks beautiful solo, the Japanese Rock’n’Roll medley,
and July morning (72). How good David sang this song. Pure emotion
(with tears in my eyes!). The Rough Diamond clips are also very good
and looks like David has (short) good times with these guys. Thank
you very much for all the people who were involved in this project!!
Hopes for more………. How about the Lawton Era with footage of
the “Firefly”-tour 77 etc.? My order you will have for sure,
Cheers Robert from Switzerland
Hi Heepies! We watched the second Byron diac last nite. To me it
great. It was so cool to see the boys in action that the sound
really didn't matter. It was a good decision to include the
Maybe we are so spoiled with digital surround sound now that we
don't like anything else, but to me it was just fine.
Wasn't the part with David and Mick and the yellow crepe paper cool?
The July Morning on disc 2 is fabulous. It was done with much more
than other takes I've seen.
This is the greatest thing I have ever bought. If I was being robbed
and had a choice of giving up my car or the dvd I'd give 'em the

I received the dvd in the mail on March 6 and upon opening the
package, I was immediately pleased to see the DVD in the form of
really nice book. The cover is beautiful and the booklet describes
the producer's love for Uriah Heep since childhood and then how the
process of making the dvd came together.
Next step was actually watching the dvd. I must preface with saying
video and audio technology have sure come along way since the 70's.
Watching this dvd reminds us of how primitive video was in the 70's,
but we did not realize that at the time. I have never seen Uriah
Heep live before 2000, even though a fan since the early 70's. I did
see them on TV doing Shady Lady in 1975 and that was my only
exposure until the Lawton era on Midnight Special. I was thrilled to
see the Shady Lady performance included in the set, as I was able to
relive the huge thrill of seeing Uriah Heep on national TV. I will
never forget that night. I had no idea that they were going to be on
TV and I was in my room at the college dormitory. TV's were not
allowed in our rooms, but of course there was always some who dared
to throw caution to the wind. All of a sudden I hear a friend shout,
"Hey Winward, your group is coming on, hurry up and get down here"
Of course you can only imagine how fast I sprinted down the hallway
to his room, just as Heep was being introduced!! So if this dvd can
recreate that moment of excitement for me, I can understand hoiw
much more significant it must be for those who did see Heep live in
that era. So throw comments out the window about the technical
quality, this dvd is about emotion and art, not technological
I do not wish to do a song by song critique, it is Heep there is
nothing to criticize!! However some observations. I got a kick out
of David kicking Gary Thain in the butt during Tears in My Eyes, as
if to say bass player belongs in the back of the stage. Most of the
video seemed to focus on David himself. Another thing is Lee is a
wild man on the drums, i could not believe how energetic he was, and
yet still is!! Seeing Gary Thain play bass with such effortless ease
is a real treat. I am also surprised at how well Wetton played bass
live and contributed so much in the vocal dept. I also feel that
those shooting the various videos did not spend enough time on Mick
and his extraordinary guitar playing. You hear it of course, but it
is not the fault of those who put the dvd together. Vocally it is
tough to get a read on Mick's voice, but I did hear him distinctly
on "Easy Livin" singing "oh happy day". There is some impressive
video of Ken playing slide guitar that were breathtaking.
I could go on an on, but ah Mmastercard, $65 US dollars for Uriah
Heep DVD, $6 for beer and potato chips while watching the video,
memories of Heep during the Byron era of yesteryear, priceless!!!
Travelers In Time...
Transported back into time ... the best time...is the only way I can
describe this release from Classic Rock Productions.
All of us have memories of "when we saw Heep", and some of us were
able to see them with the "Classic Line-up".
CRP has allowed .. has provided, those fans who had not
quintessential musical complex to enjoy some footage that has been
"heard about", but never seen.
For those of us who were witness to those days, this is a welcome,
and highly sought-after gem.
For those of us that are seeing David Byron, Ken Hensley and Gary
Thain together with Uriah Heep for the first time, they are looking
at the makings of a true Rock Legend.
I remember well being in an apartment in Minnesota when Heep played
on TV and I didn't know they were going to be on ! It was a night
that had started with Heep music and all the usual trappings that
needed to accompany that kind of evening, and I was very primed so
to speak. Uriah Heep hit the stage and I was in the kitchen, and
heard them..Woooahhh.....this is too too much...
Needless to say, it was a show to remember.
Bob Carruthers and staff, Louie Rentrop, and Ron Mann and Mac
Steagall of the CHA deserve well due credit for searching, sometimes
begging, traveling ,cataloguing, and delivering what we firmly
believe to be the best compilation ever produced of that era...that
long ago time of Uriah Heep.
We have an expression ..."Have You Had YOUR Heep
today"...well, now we have it all..
Thanks guys ! B R A V O !!
here for the Sea of Tranquility
We all wanted this DVD. Bob Carruthers
wanted this DVD. Knowing that he could make our dream come
true made me very eager to find footage that was good enough to
convince him to start the producing process.
Over the years many dutch heepsters told
me that they had seen a Uriah Heep Movie in the seventies
distributed by a film mailorder company called 'Fortuna film'.
The film was showed in the 90ths at a
Holland Kiss convention
So we knew it was out there
After some months of searching, I
finally got in contact with Fenno , a guy who collected
filmfootage since the 70ths . He now provides TV broadcasters with
pieces of old footage for music and historical programmes.
It was a thrill really when he told me
that he owned the original tapes from the Fortuna film 'Uriah Heep
live at the Budocan 1973'. That was the very first time I believed
that the dvd could become a reality.
At the same time Heepster Hilco
Arendshorst told me by email that he found the complete tv
broadcast of the Pinkpop Heepset in a box at his loft.
His message excited me even more
. Up till then I only owned the Sweet Lorraine piece, as that
was broadcasted a few years ago as part of a pinkpop 30 years
anniversary. As you all can see Hilco managed to keep the
videotape from 1976 in a perfect state.
Hilco's daily job is ticket inspector
for our national railways. Hilco lives at the eastside of the
country but It happens to be that Hilco's train route is passing
Roosendaal, a place close to Bergen op Zoom.
We made an appointment to change
goods at the Roosendaal trainstation on a windy wednesday morning.
We never met before, but when we shaked hands it felt like
friends. The Heep brotherhood was there from the first moment. My
eyes followed the red taillights when the train left the station
with Hilco .. .. while my heart told me that
Hilco had left me with gold in my hands...
Watching the footage at home I got
the more excited by the idea that every heepfan could see this in
a short period of time . Uriah Heep in front of 40.000 people,
filmed from a very short distance. I had never seen the band
filmed that close.
In the meantime Fenno was preparing
the Japan Footage for us. He had a few tapes and selected the best
possible quality . It took a while as he was very busy
with his job for natioal tv broadcasters.
The final moment was the weekend of
december 6th 2003 when Bob was visiting Mostly Autumn at their
glorious gig in the Boerderij in Zoetermeer Holland.
Before we met in The Haque I visited
Fenno, living near The Haque. I realised that it was that very
moment ,when he handed over the tapes , I really believed in
the Classic Heep DVD as we have it now.
The job was done. Bob took the tapes
with him to England, where he started his tour de force. He and
his team spend many hours, days, and nights to get the DVD
available for all of us.
The Carolina Heepsters Association by
Ron Mann & Mac Steagall had done their fair share of digging.
Bob told me that these guys had found really rare footage from
the very first filmed Uriah Heep
appearance on US tv, including a interview with the band. As if
this wasn't enough they came up with this Rough Diamond promotion
tape. Well done guys!
This is the holy grail for every
diehard heepfan.Bob proves himself as a true fan. He made his
ultimate heepfan testimony. Read his words, and look at the DVD
book. He created a monumnet for the band he and we love
so deeply. The report of his first live Heep gig must be
recognized by everyone who was so lucky to have the same
A statue for David Byron & Gary
Thain, a big thank you to Ken, Mick, John, and Lee. I am so happy
the music and the band that became a way of live for me, never
stopped. Everyday I enjoy Heep. Bernie, Phil, Trevor, Mick and Lee
please go on as long as you can.
It had to come out one day....yes I
admit I'm addicted to Heep...No doctor needed.
last!! Some visual substance of that Great, Legendary line up has
rightfully found its place onto DVD. It's always puzzled me why
early film was so limited of a band that spent so much time on the
road and now finally it's here and is a whole lot more than
Disc1 is brilliantly crafted. I could not believe the images
unfolding on the screen during those first three numbers and
especially during July Morning. Some excellent work has been done
Disc2 is just fascinating and is equally as good regardless. Well
done and thank you to the team that put this together.
Well, it’s finally here ‘ and what can I say’ First of
all, let there be no doubt that CRP has done a great work assembling
this Classic Heep set. You sense that it has been made with care.
And for that alone they deserve a big thumbs up. Alright, then to
the performances: It has been discussed whether the Japan
performances should have been overdubbed or left with the original
sound, poor as it may be. I can see the point in both. If I was a
collector (which in fact I am), I would prefer the original sound,
however, if I was to present this material to friends and like, I
would prefer it overdubbed as it is now. You get a much better
musical experience this way. So I think it makes sense. Of course
not every single beat is in sync, in fact a lot of them isn’t, but
this is to expect, and CRP has generally done a great job attempting
to melt the pieces together.
The Shepperton performances has also been overdubbed, this time
with the soundtrack from the remastered CD version. I have always
thought that this was a lousy performance from Heep. Byron is at his
drinking best (or worst) here, resulting in a generally awful vocal
The pictures are dull, and you almost can’t hear Mick’s
guitar courtesy of Rob Corich’s mixing. On the other hand the
guitar sound is not too well anyway, so maybe it’s just the same.
I tend to skip these tracks every time. The USA performance is great
in the way that you really get to see and hear Uriah Heep as they
was in 1975. There’s a lot of power here, and Byron shows yet
again how great a performer he is, although at times he sounds flat
and strained, probably because of his unfortunate drinking habit
combined with the heavy tour schedule at the time.
Nevertheless, it’s pure magic, and you can almost
"smell" the show! The Holland performance shows the strain
on the band, as Byron is now on his own plane. His singing bear the
usual signs of his drinking habits, but he performs quite well, and
again there is a lot of power from the band. However, the chemistry
and togetherness, that once was one of the trademarks of Uriah Heep,
has by now completely disappeared.
Rough Diamond deserves a special mention here, because this was
IMO such a great band that deserved much better. Byron’s vocal
performance is great, and shows what a great singer he really was.
But what contrast from singing in front of 40.000 people to singing
in an empty hall...’ Sad, when you think about it.
All in all, a great job by CRP, and to the words of David:
"Do you want some more’ ", my answer is: YES !!!
For the first time in DVD and the majority of these images, for
the first time very short, it is possible to see and re-examine with
l’envi David Byron, Ken Hensley, Mick Box, Gary Thain, John Wetton
and Lee Kerslake in full action.
There was well a "antique" cassette VHS called
"Easy livin’ - The history of Uriah Heep "published by
Bronze Records in the middle of the Eighties, since good exhausted a
long time, which comprised some thin titles where David Byron
evolved/moved, the original voice of the group.
Why, if few cinematographic documents d’un of the headlights
groups of the beginning of the Seventies? D’abord, the vidéos
means, such as we know them, did not n’existaient and it was
necessary to hope on relatively heavy equipment to film a concert.
The request for this kind of film was not to be significant and
finally, whether l’on wants or not, Uriah Heep, in spite of the
colossal sales of discs and the great multitudes of the public to
their concerts, n’a ever acquired with the critical rock'n'rolls
or the media. Perhaps those did not n’étaient particularly
interested to film these giants qu’ils had become quickly in 2
years. It would also be necessary to take into account the short
career of the group at the top.
Established once this truth, it is easily comprehensible that the
quality of the images and/or the sound track is not always optimal:
it took days and working days to manage to go up, with mixer the
material at disposal without speaking about the months spent before
to seek the documents. Bob Carruthers, the producer for Classic Rock
Productions, is also a large fan d’Uriah Heep and c’est thanks
to its tenacity that l’on can aujourd’hui regale these images.
Obviously for any fan d’Uriah Heep, these documents are as as
many treasures as l’on will cherish like the pupils of our eyes.
The images turned to Tokyo into 1973 are astounding: one sees there
a welded group which "breaks the hut". You never n’avez,
except those d’entre you who have l honnor to see them at that
time (and which has a good memory), Lee Kerslake to strike its
barrels of the kind, you never n’avez considering Ken Hensley
s’agiter like a patient on his Hammond, you never n’avez
considering David Byron contorsionner thus on the boards, without
forgetting l’incroyable elegance of Gary Thain and declads it
rageuse of Mick Box. At the sight of these images, one likes them
still more our Heep.
Only the first DVD will be soon available in the trade,
puisqu’il gathers the documents presenting of the quality
standards sufficient for marketing at large échelle…. and c’est
here, qu’il is necessary to be attentive, dear readers and
You need the 2nd DVD imperatively. This one is abounded in
nuggets: images turned in slides, in the cabins, with l’aéroport
of Zürich or in Näfels (Swiss) on June 5 1976… l’un in the
last concerts of David Byron. Without forgetting 2 short interviews
d’époque and cherry on the cake, 5 titles of Rough Diamond,
qu’a group formed Byron after its ousting d’Uriah Heep and which
counted in its rows Clem Clempson, the superb guitarist d’Humble
The set, format box DVD, arise as a book with cover lasts in
which niche 2 DVD and a booklet of 80 pages containing full with
beautiful photographs and a rich person text of the producer Bob
Carruthers….à who l’on can say THANKS A BATCH FOR YOUR
Wow, was this ever worth the wait! I haven't even gotten
to disc two yet, so amazing is disc one.
With all due respect to every lineup my favorite band has had (the
current lineup being my *very* close second-favorite just behind the
"classic" '72-'74 version, although if I listen to "Acoustically
Driven" a few more times they might actually displace them!), this
set just confirms for me that David Byron simply has to be
considered the greatest frontman in the history of rock, and reminds
me that one of the music world's great tragedies is that he and Gary
are no longer with us. Bernie, John Lawton, and Pete Goalby are all
truly great vocalists, but David was in a league of his own, IMO.
Many thanks to CRP for giving us this treasure.
Now on to pop disc 2 into the DVD!
I received the DVD two days ago and it
didn't leave the DVD player since then.
It is MAGNIFICENT--WONDERFUL--UNIQUE !!!!!!!!!!!
Actually the real TREASURE is the Disc 2 -- Collectors Rarities.
I don't care for the sound quality on this Disc (we all have the
Heep Live '73 CD with the real sound of the band), but to SEE the
guys in action--that is something UNFORGETTABLE...........
My favorites :
1.Mick's guitar workout --I did play it probably 10 times on a row
2.Sweet Lorrainne'76 and Rock'n'Roll Medley'73 --I have been to many
Rock concerts, but I have never seen something like this--Uriah Heep
were the BEST....Box, Byron, Hensley, Kerslake,Thain(Wetton)--they
were playing with the crowd like puppet masters--UNFORGETTABLE!!!!!
3.July morning'72 --something REALLY SPECIAL!!!!!!
4.The interviews -- to hear everybody's real voice.....
5. Rough Diamond--Byron after Heep......
I would gladly pay the $50 to have only Disc 2 !!!!!!!!!
This is the most important album for me
since "A history Of Uriah Heep VHS on Bronze Records/Virgin in
1985. I was 10 years in 1975 so I had almost NO chance to see David
Byron "live" with Heep. Therefore its great for me to
be a owner of this double DVD from Classic Rock Legends. I have all
the other DVD/tapes with Heep but this one is different.
Eindelijk is de dvd bij ons aangekomen.
Het is fantastisch om deze beelden van
David Byron als frontman te zien.
Ondanks er beelden zijn van mindere
kwaliteit vindt ik dat het beslist bij de verzameling dvd's van
Heep erbij hoort. nl;

Have had a wonderful weekend watching the classic Heep DVD, over and over.
It is hard to find words. David Byron really was unique. Despite the
sometimes poor sound quality, the second, rarities, disc is my absolute
favorite, though the first one is a real gem too despite the obvious
over -dubs. This limited release above all other material provides a true
insight into the dynamics and bonding within the band, and has completely
blown me away! I have laughed and cried!
David's performance as part of Rough Diamond is also exceptional. That band
had so much potential.
Thanks to Ron and all others involved for making this a truly amazing

So to the disc 1. Sunrise opens majestically as always. It's
overwhelming to see
the classic line-up in full form. Tears in My Eyes follows. Great
from Hensley, Box cranking his raw chords, Kerslake banging his
drums like a
monster, Byron singing like a bird and last but not least: Thain
with his fingers running down the bass guitar. I must be dreaming.
Time ends this disc's Budokan '73 section, but it does it even
better than on
the official live '73.
The next highlight for me is the Live USA '75 performances with
Wetton. The band
is raging through silence - so to speak. Especially Return to
Stealin' look and sound very good! July Morning Montage '73-'76 is
fantastic...I'm in seventh heaven, and my family just don't

Uriah Heep even then when it's not on its highest peak! These
Holland songs '76
are rare and very valuable to evidence what was going on back then.
interviews are interesting. It's great to see the guys talking about
approach to music and concerts.
Rough Diamond is a good doc of that band and Byron after the classic
was buried. The songs are fair, but the players just seem to be at
place, wrong time. Byron still makes it, and to my opinion if the
band would be
different, Byron would have survived...Who knows? Just speculations.
Finally - a biiig thank you to the makers of this document! Your
work has been a
tough one, but you have really succeeded! Thanks guys! This will
mean a lot
more many would expect. And - we want some more! Got a deal, eh?
I had been looking forward to this DVD ever since it was publicised
byon the web site.
Was I disappointed?
I first saw Heep on the Magician's Birthday tour of the UK back
in 1973 (Jan 21st to be precise) and it was my first ever gig. The
journey had started at the end of '71 with the purchase of Look
What attracted me to Uriah Heep in the first place? They were different,
exciting and I could absolutely relate to their music. Micks guitar
work on Look at Yourself was just brilliant BUT as the years rolled
on, the live band was all but a distant memory.
Then came this new DVD.
I put on the first disc and there they were in Japan. David, Mick,
Gary, Lee and Ken playing Sunrise and I could not believe it. The
excitement of that time and that lineup just wafted over me and
I was whisked back to that first gig and the feelings I experienced
at that time.
There just hasn't been any decent footage of the guys from that
time until now and boy has Bob Carruthers done a bang up job here.
There are just not enough superlatives to describe this work. I
was completely taken aback by my reaction to this DVD. Seeing this
lineup at full throttle is just amazing. David Byron was a crowd
master and he was just such a good front man.
The Collectors Rarities CD ... If you were a Heep fan then, it is
just fascinating to watch. The band in the dressing room,in interview,heading
for the stage, playing in tv studios and playing on stage.........
I just found it all fascinating to watch. Seeing David playing with
Rough Diamond is just excellent too and so worthy of inclusion.
If you are a recent fan and never experienced the classic lineup,
this will entertain you no end. If you were around at the time,
you will be enthralled by this and if like me you have read Jeff
Perkins autobiography of David and therefore know a bit more of
David's background, it is fascinating to watch him perform both
on stage and in interview.
This is just brilliant and I am not generally into superlatives
even about Heep, I just like the music and being part of the best
band in the world.
I cannot put into words how important this DVD is to me.
What I felt then, I feel right now.
The book that comes with the 2 dvd set is very thoughtfully put
together and the photos have been chosen with care, obviously by
a true fan.
It's superb........buy it. Just buy it, give it a good home and

The DVD's are on the
inside of the front and back cover and the booklet is sandwiched in
between. It's just like a hard back book---really smart. On
watching the 1st disc I can immediately see that hours and hours of
work has been put into the film footage to bring the sound and
picture into sinc. It must have been like a jigsaw puzzle trying to
fit bits of footage to the sound. CRP should be congratulated for
doing such an excellent job. The actual footage is excellent quality
considering it's age, it reminds me of the Led Zep "DVD".
This is all very nostalgic for me, it has rekindled fading memories
of Heep concerts that I attended in the 70's. Very emotional stuff.

that ?30 quid well spent, they should subscribe it on the N.H.S. as
an anti-depressant, fabulous
Arrived today 1/3/04 ! Well worth the wait. Very
good package with a book well written and a good read. I have
watched the first DVD and flicked through the second .... very good
and loads of old footage. It leaves a tear in the eye David was a
great singer and what a waste BUT watching the Dutch footage you
could see why he was sacked . A great collectors item . Well done
Classic Rock an the team that found the footage. We all slag off CR
but without Bob and the team our store of Heep goodies would be full
of compilations. Enjoy yours when it arrives .
