  • I love the early Uriah Heep material as much as the next mid-Boomer, but “Salisbury” and “Very ‘eavy, Very ‘umble” would be an extremely redundant combination to purchase. If one is not familiar with U. Heep, better to pair either of these early recordings with a “Best of U. Heep” or one featuring the current U. Heep lineup of musicians.

    The album art for “Very ‘eavy, Very ‘umble” was actually used on the U.S. release of “Salisbury” (or I have my vinyl LPs in the wrong sleeves, but I think not). The cobweb face guy was also projected onto the drum kit’s double bass drum heads for an interesting lighting effect.

    Unless one is an extreme U. Heep fan, either of these early albums would be a great investment; either, but not both together.
