This is it... the holy grail for every Uriah Heep fan! At last here
the previously unreleased footage of film and television performances
from 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975 and 1976, never before available on
featuring the late, great David Byron at his very best. Digitally
and re-mastered for 5.1 Surround Sound this is the long awaited audio
visual celebration of one of the greatest front men in the history of
rock. Byron was the original voice of Uriah Heep and for many fans
literally irreplaceable. Also featured in this lavish edition is
known footage of Gary Thain on bass, another much lamented casualty of
rock and roll lifestyle dearly missed by his legions of followers.
This is Heep in all their peacock pomp and glory captured at the very
pinnacle of the band's career performing material from "Return to
and "Wonderworld". Quality live footage from the Byron
days is incredibly
rare so we are proud to be able at last to bring you this wonderful film
the world's greatest rock band. The limited edition set comes in
hard back package similar to the "Sailing The Sea of Light"
includes 2 discs packaged as a hard back book in one lavish package.
3000 copies of this special limited edition are being produced. It's only
available by mail order. Demand is sure to be huge so we recommend

DISC 2: COLLECTORS RARITIES FEATURING URIAH HEEP AND DAVID BYRON'S ROUGH
This amazing disc brings together all the surviving footage we could find
from the Byron era which is of releasable quality. Sadly many of
masters have long since disappeared so the source footage has been restored
to the best quality possible. It is as good as we are ever likely
have... but what footage it is! Included on the collectors only
the film which was shown at Wembley before the "High and Mighty"
rare interviews from US and Australian television networks, previously
unreleased footage from an unaired US television show shot in 1972, the
best of the Japanese Budokan shows from March '73, film from one of Byron's
last gigs in Europe and all of the surviving promotional film of
Diamond. How about that for a mouth-watering prospect?
