Demons And Wizards (1972) (POLYGRAM RECORDS) (8 TRACKS)
Uriah Heep

Album Description:

DEMONS AND WIZARDS is the fourth album released by British rock band Uriah Heep in May of 1972. The original vinyl release was a gatefold sleeve, the front of which was designed by Roger Dean and contains a hidden erotic image of male and female genitalia. The inner of the gatefold had pictures of the band and notes by Ken Hensley, whilst the LP itself was housed in a liner on which were printed the lyrics.

The songs "The Wizard" and "Easy Livin''" were released as singles in the United Kingdom and North America, as well as many other markets. "Easy Livin''" entered the U.S. Top 40 at #39, making it Heep''s first and only American hit. "Easy Livin''" was also a mega hit in New Zealand and Germany, countries which were becoming a strong market for the band. The album itself was certified Gold in the U.S. on October 27, 1972. The album is today regarded by many fans and critics alike as Uriah Heep''s best album. Even Rolling Stone, which printed an infamously negative review of the band''s debut album, ran a positive assessment of DEMONS AND WIZARDS. "These guys are good. The first side of DEMONS AND WIZARDS is simply odds-on the finest high energy workout of the year, tying nose and nose with the Blue Oyster Cult," wrote Mike Saunders, who stated in conclusion, "they may have started out as a thoroughly dispensable neo-Cream & Blooze outfit, but at this point Uriah Heep are shaping up into one hell of a first-rate modern rock band."

The album also served as partial inspiration for Hansi Kürsch and Jon Schaffer''s side-project Demons and Wizards.

Uriah Heep: David Byron (vocals); Ken Hensley (guitar, keyboards, percussion); Mick Box (guitar); Gary Thain (bass); Lee Kerslake (drums, percussion).
