Recorded at Landsdowne Studios, London in March and April, 1972. Includes liner notes by Ken Hensley.
Although renowned heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio would become the eventual undisputed "expert" on dungeons, dragons, and wizards, one of the first heavy metal bands to tackle such subject matter was Uriah Heep on their 1972 release, DEMONS AND WIZARDS.
But just as the band went "medieval" on us, they also issued their best straight-ahead rocker (and biggest U.S. hit), "Easy Livin," which was eventually covered by '80s shock rockers W.A.S.P. Other Heep highlights include the album-opening folk rocker "The Wizard" (not the same similarly-titled song by another British metal band--Black Sabbath) and the space rocker "Traveller in Time."
