Heep conquers America!

"Or at least conquers Trenton, New Jersey. I had the privilege of seeing one of the two October 2002 shows that the DVD is taken from, and meeting the band, and if there's a better live rock band, or a nicer bunch of guys, I haven't run across them yet. A simply marvelous show, with some surprises ("Tales", "The Magician's Birthday") mixed in with excellent versions of the expected classics ("July Morning", "Lady In Black"). This is one of the few bands that really does keep getting better with age. Highly recommended."
Another great Heep DVD
Todd M. Pence | Fairfax, VA United States | 03/28/2004

"Yet another in the series of great DVDs produced by the current lineup of Uriah Heep, my all-time favorite band. This one documents the band's headliner appearance at the awesome Classic Rock festival in Trenton, New Jersey in the autumn of 2002 and is of the best in Heep's DVD series, with great concert footage, a wide-ranging setlist incorporating both electric and acoustic sets and informative interviews sandwiched in between the songs.
Of course, for me personally, this DVD captures one of the milestones of my life as a fan. For the final night's closing number, "Lady in Black", I was one of the dozen lucky die-hard Uriah Heep fans invited to sing back up vocals and we all can be seen on the DVD.
If you are a Uriah Heep fan like me, you must own this set as it is one of the most important and memorable performances of the bands long and storied career.
Hey, Herrbear (the one who wrote the previous review and lives in Leesburg, VA). I live in Fairfax. Get in touch with me if you're so inclined."
You Can't Keep a Good Band Down!

"These guys have been through hell and they still keep rockin'. With the line up of Mick Box, Trevor Bolder, Lee Kerslake, Bernie Shaw and Phil Lanzon... these guys just won't take a beating. I've seen them four times in concert with four different line ups... David Byron and John Wetton... John Lawton and Trevor Bolder... John Sloman and Chris Slade... and the current line up for the Raging Silence tour. Mick is still at his peak performance and these guy know how to party. Track list
* Easy Livin'
* Rainbow Demon
* I'll Keep On Trying *
* Heartless Land
* The Other Side of Midnight
* Return to Fantasy
* Rain *
* The Wizard
* Blind Eye

Also look for the other live Heep DVDs and CDs.... you might just be surprised who guests on the stage with them. Check out their website for the Heep Radio, too."
Good rockin', strange mix
Youri | Moscow, Russia | 08/04/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Good performance and some additional interview footage, live versions of Magician's Birthday and especially Lady in Black performed together with die-hard fans are simply unforgettable!
But I don't understand why I see Mick Box standing on the left of the stage while his guitar comes from the right speaker, and guess where the keyboard solos come from when Phil Lanson is on the right? - From the left speaker! Such strange mix is OK for CD, but for DVD where one can see the position of the musician on stage it is inadequate. So my rating is 5 stars minus one because of the mix."
