Dear "Dime Members",
when i first started the UHDP(URIAH HEEP DIME PROJECT)a little over a month ago or so,
it was inspired mostly by 3 people. Federico(Blacklarbot), Konstantinos(Maratos) & Iain(Matoman).
Maratos & Matoman are like myself, both big UH fans and collectors,
but it was the success of Blacklarbot's SABBATH DIME PROJECT(SDP) that made me realize that if did the same thing with Uriah Heep,
and shared as many of the good recordings in my collection that i could,
then maybe like with all the Sabbath collectors,
someone would come forward with a rare and wonderful "uncirculated" UH recording.
And amazingly enough someone did!
Now i need to tell you just how unselfesh and generous this person as well as his friends who actually recorded that show have been.
Without asking for anything in return, NOTHING, They simply decided to send me their recordings and have me present them here for all of you!
So they sent me not 1 source of this "rare uncirculated show", but 2 Master sources recorded by 2 different tapers!!
Now you see the word "RARE" thrown around alot on here on "Dime".
But to give you an idea just how "rare" this show really is....
It has the earliest "Known" Live version of the song CIRCLE OF HANDS,
the only version so far from 1972 and it predates the next version(1973-01-31 Copenhagen)by some 6 months!
This recording also has a unique double encore of ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN & BLUE SEUDE SHOES played in their entirety,
instead of in a longer Rock-n-Roll Medley which was more the traditonal way they played them.
Not only does it contain the earliest known recording of "Circle Of Hands" and a unique "Rock 'n' Roll Medley", but also:
- The last known recording of "I Wanna Be Free"
- The last known recording of "The Wizard" with the 'original' line-up
- The last known recording of "Rainbow Demon" with the 'original' line-up
- The last known recording of the "Jam" including guitar, bass and drum solos
- It is the only known recording to include 4 tracks from the "Demons and Wizards" album which had been released 10 days prior to this concert.
-The above information added from qoutes by;"Maratos"
And just until a month ago no Uriah Heep collector i know had even had heard of this shows existance!
We can only speculate why the gentlemen that recorded this amazing preformance waited 38 years to finally let it out.
Nonetheless here it is!
And with that in mind i implore those that still have such "treasures" tucked away,
to please consider sharing them the way these generous people have.
None of us are getting any younger and what good will any of your recordings be when your dead.
This is the 1st of the 2 sources.
