- Some good news from Norway!  The compilation album "The Essential Uriah
Heep", have been heavily promoted on Norwegian television for the past 14
days and it pays off!  This album climbed to number 15 on the norwegian
charts and hopefully next week will be even better:
http://lista.vg.no/show_list_spes.jsp?listType=+yweek==vis.  Heep is
currently outselling the latest Metallica album, "St. Anger", and is only a
handful of places behind Destiny's Child diva Beyonce's new album.  The
prime time TV ads are continuing on the major networks (thanks to Egil
"Heepaholic" Bokn and Knut Svendsen for the info).

- Our fried Egil adds: "Well we now have the chance of pushing Uriah Heep
to the top by voting, like we have done before. I urge all the E-Heep
subscribers to log into the following link and give a single vote for Uriah
Heep as the best band ever.  Just type in Uriah Heep in the field which
says " Dette er verdens beste band" ("This is the world's best band") and
click on "Send Inn" and that's it.  I'll keep you guys posted on the chart
position".  The link:

still working, but this new one is surely easier to memorize.
