Also available now, some recently added vintage cool Heep stuff: http://www.rentrock.nl/fotoboek/Vintage%20Uriah%20Heep%20articles%20and%20photos/album/index.html , as well as (thanks to Yves Monast) some cool rare pics of Heep with Mark Clarke and with Steff Fontaine: http://www.rentrock.nl/fotoboek/Vintage%20Uriah%20Heep%20scans%20by%20Yves%20Monast/album/index.html . A collection of images from the Pinkpop Festival 1976 on which Heep headlined: http://www.rentrock.nl/fotoboek/Pinkpop%201976%20Geleen%20The%20Netherlands/album/index.html (thanks to Kees Baars of Arrow Rock radio for the David Byron backstage photo). A video: http://www.123video.nl/playvideos.asp?MovieID=244425 shows the festival promoter Jan Smeets talking about Heep’s appearance. Heep roadies at first refused television cameras on stage, so there was a brief fight between them and the festival crew. The video also shows "Sweet Lorraine" performed as the encore. Many thanks to Hilco Arendshorst of http://www.classicrockphotos.nl for his great help. Finally, a concert poster advertising the 2nd Annual "British Rock Meeting" Open Air Festival in May 1972 featuring Uriah Heep, which was due to take place in Mannheim, West Germany: http://www.maximumrnb.com/various.htm (thanks to Árpád Blázy).
