As longtime Uriah Heep fans know, the band could really tear it up on stage during their '70s prime--and their 1973 release LIVE perfectly captures the band's in-concert excitement. Recorded at a tour stop in Birmingham, England during January of '73, the band cranks out high decibel renditions of many of their prog-metal masterpieces.
"Sunrise" proves to be just as intense and emotional in concert as the original studio version, while both "Sweet Lorraine" and "Easy Livin'" rock with the best of them. Uriah Heep's LIVE is a solid example of the whole early '70s in-concert hard rock experience.
