Great for Heep fans
John Connor | USA | 03/29/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Finally some live material from the Goalby period available in the US! This is really for Heep fans only, but is great if your a Heep fan. The sound is better then I thought it would, as sometimes these kind of releases are put together rather fast and have lousy audio. This is a decent 5.1 mix. No extras (the track by track reviews by some guy are dumb), and it's, as expected, 4x3. As for the concert, it's in a small club, definately dated to the '80's but good. the old songs Goalby does good, not as good as Shaw, but good. But the real great thing here is the Goalby period stuff. 'Other Side of Midnight' just kicks butt, and isn't available anywhere else live. Other standouts, 'Too Scared To Run' and That's The Way That It Is'. 'Sell Your Soul' and 'Bad Blood' are fine. 'Rockarama' is just odd, very '80's!, 'Angel' is the only Goalby song I could live without. The casual Heep fan should either get '73's Live CD w/ Byron or one of the newer Shaw Cd's or DVD's for the best live Heep stuff, but for the true Heep fan this will not dissapoint."
Underrated Heep !

"If you are a Heep fan buy this !I managed to get a copy of this concert on VHS which was for some reason recorded in EP mode? The DVD version has a much improved picture & sound quality.It is also unique in that is the only footage of the the band in Sinclair/Goalby era.Guaranteed, every Heepster will love this !
Goalby-Era Gold
CU82 | Atlanta, GA | 09/13/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This product is really a treat when you consider how difficult it is to find quality production and performance from this point in time. "Gypsy" (Live at London's Camden Palace 1985)is a no-frills DVD that simply provides a glimpse of Uriah Heep when Pete Goalby and John Sinclair were in the group. Sound and picture are surprisingly good and the band's performance is solid. The set list features songs from the Goalby-era alongside classic Heep tunes that Pete is able to deliver admirably:

Sell Your Soul
The Other Side Of Midnight
Too Scared To Run
The Wizard
Bad Blood
That's The Way That It Is
Look At Yourself

The highlight of the set for me is "Too Scared To Run" as they really rock out on this tune. Trevor Bolder aggressively attacks his bass (as usual) and Mick Box is studio perfect (as usual)on this high energy number. All in all, this video document is a fitting look at the band during this period."
1985 is Alive

"This was a pretty good-time DVD. I have to say I'm not a big Uriah Heep follower, but coming up in the 70s and 80s, you couldn't help but know a little about the band. It's definately dated but you got to love bands with talent to play live and a guitarist who can actually solo when most modern "rock guitarists" don't have the talent to do it. Mick Box rides his wah-wah pedal tastefully throughout.The sound and picture are good. The venue is small and intimate. The times are dated. But still, this is a good ride even if it's just to see Mick's time-locked look of a big mustache and long hair. (Oh yes, and the band plays good too.)"
