‘Uriah Heep Live’ Gets 2 LP ‘Splatter Vinyl’ Re-release
In 1973, Uriah Heep released their live album debut, URIAH HEEP LIVE. The album set the benchmark for live rock records when it sold over 500,000 copies in the United States (pre-KISS Alive, pre-Frampton Comes Alive). URIAH HEEP LIVE captures the band with their classic line-up of David Byron, Mick Box, Ken Hensley, Lee Kerslake (Ozzy) and Gary Thain hammering through hits like ‘Easy Livin’’, ‘July Morning’ and ‘Gypsy’, plus deeper album cuts and live favorites. The album was produced by longtime Uriah Heep affiliate Gerry Bron (Bronze Records founder) and recorded by the Pye Mobile Unit, with Alan Perkins as engineer, using state-of-the-art early seventies mobile recording technology.
Mastered for vinyl, the meticulously recreated gatefold holds two 180g heavyweight “splatter vinyl” records. The set also includes original liner notes from each band member, press clippings and band photography. In addition, the album comes with a period reproduction UK tour brochure and lastly, for the lucky ones, 50 random copies will include programs signed by the band. Pre-order here.
