Since the invention of the DVD I was eagerly waiting for live footage from the early Uriah Heep line-up. Last year this 2-DVD/book set was released as "Classic Heep - Live from the Byron era", what a treat! Mainly due to the efforts from fellow Dutchman Louis Rentrop (named by the band as the #1 UH fan on this globe!) here is an excellent 2-DVD (including a wonderful book) featuring live footage from Uriah Heep, recorded between 1972 and 1976 (and some footage from David Byron solo, five songs from "Rough diamond - 1977)….

Many would give anything to see a live Elvis Presley. In a sense Grumanu Byron (Jonathon Shek) lucky: on the road from nowhere to nowhere Byron Groom takes a companion in a pink jacket. Companion named Elvis (Harvey Keitel), he returned to us within 20 years after death, and hurries home to Graceland estate in order to get to the anniversary of the King. Byron all the way, are scratching their heads, who before him: a little worn, but without a doubt, a living legend, reincarnation, slicker or a fan? Later added and Marilyn, but that even though everything is not meant, but money for participating in the show… Anyone would be enough already and this, but it turns out, unexpected acquaintances are not yet over, making a trip Gruman in wonderful and unforgettable adventure.
David Chesky, born in Miami in 1956, settled in New York City in the 1970s and now identifies himself as an "urban orchestral composer." His Urban Concertos, of which he has written nearly a dozen, constitute his most substantial output. In the program notes for this recording of three of his concertos, he wrote, "Perhaps one can say my style is neo-impressionist. But I do not live on some quaint idyllic country farm, I live in the city that never sleeps! It is a hard-driving concrete jungle that pulsates around the clock." "Pulsating" is an apt descriptor for Chesky's music, which is notable for its restlessly high energy and rhythmic propulsiveness.
