Description by OLDIES.com:
At last here it is, the previously unreleased footage of Uriah Heep from 1973-1976. Seventeen tracks never before available on DVD and all featuring the late, great David Byron at his very best. Digitally restored and re-mastered for 5.1 Surround Sound this is the long awaited audiovisual 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 was irreplaceable. Also featured in this lavish edition is the only live footage of Gary Thain on bass, another much lamented casualty of the rock and roll lifestyle dearly missed by his legions of followers.
Heavy rock legends Uriah Heep have amassed a huge amount of video material over the course of their hugely successful career. This release contains rare footage of the band performing between 1973 and 1976, when they churned out the classic albums SWEET FREEDOM, WONDERWORLD, HIGH & MIGHTY, RETURN TO FANTASY, and LIVE AT SHEPPERTON '74. The various live clips, featuring Gary Thain on bass, show off the amazing vocal talents of original singer David Byron, who died prematurely in 1985. Also included are several behind-the-scenes glimpses of the band, which capture the Heep in the prime of their musical career. Digitally restored and remastered for 5.1 Surround Sound, CLASSIC HEEP FROM THE BYRON ERA is a perfect way to revisit the hard-rocking 1970s.
