Uriah Heep: Magician's Birthday Party, 2001; Full 94 Min Concert

Uriah Heep "The Magician's Birthday Party" is a live recording from London Shepherd's Bush Empire 7th December 2001 - a magical evening in London when Uriah Heep were joined on stage by former members Ken Hensley and John Lawton for a unique reunion concert, featuring special guest Thijs van Leer (from Focus on flute).

15 songs are played, from "I'll keep on Trying" from the first album to "Sweet Pretender" from "Sonic Origami", the quality of video and sound being good all the way.

This is classic live Heep - of "Live' 73" calibre, powerful hard rock of highest quality! The first half of the show 5 Heep members play with some help of Mr. van Leer, and on "July Morning" Ken Hensley joins the band, adding some Hammond, mellotron and slide guitar to the Uriah Heep sound. John Lawton joins six Heep members in the second half of "Magician's Birthday", adding considerably to vocal palette.
