This now out of print DVD set contained a 96 page fully illustrated book with revised illustrated and extended version of Dave Ling’s authorized official history of Uriah Heep fully cross referenced to rare live and studio performances spanning the entire career of Uriah Heep featured on the four accompanying DVDs.

Also included is a condensed version of Born To Perform - The David Byron Story by Jeff Perkins.  A fantastic tribute to the late great David Byron which perfectly compliments “The Sweet Freedom Tapes” based on newly discovered interviews featuring David in 1973.

The original release contained never before seen silent footage from the Firefly tour but it was cut short and the audio dubbed in from unauthorized sources.

This was released as the holy grail for every Uriah Heep fan.  At that time it was; containing previously unreleased footage of film and television performances from 1972, 1973, 1974 and 1975 and 1976 never before available on DVD, featuring the late, great David Byron at his very best.

Digitally restored and re-mastered for 5.1 Surround Sound this is the long awaited audio visual celebration of one of the greatest front men in the history of rock.   This long out of print set was released in a single DVD for most commercial markets.   The second disc was collectors footage only yet presented some excellent looks into Byron's onstage performances.   

The fans did have problems with a lot of the material and the presentation, mainly the overdubbing of sound from the Japan 73 footage with the Live 73 official audio.

These out of print disc contained alternative versions that had been taken from recently re-discovered studio sessions and meticulously re-mixed for 5.1 audio from the original studio tapes.

Recorded during 1970 and 1971 as the band were working up the material for the first three Uriah Heep albums these newly re-discovered masters have yielded a wealth of alternate takes and completely new versions of classic songs.

This surround sound audio disc only played on DVD players.
