    Got to be the live record for me. One of those rare in concert albums (Live and Dangerous is another) that captures a band at the absolute peak of its powers and yet when the audience is still pretty much all devotees rather than people there for the hits. Great record. Great audience.

    Demons & wizards by a hair. But I also appreciate their recent output, of which their latest, Living the dream, would come in as a close second. And Wake the sleeper (2008) might just be number three.

    Greatness is in the ear of the beholder.

    My favourite is Equator. I am likely to be entirely alone in this opinion. :)

    There is only one better greatest hits album and that's Greatest Hits by Alice Cooper.

    Magician's Birthday.........mainly due to it was the first UH album I bought. Then Uriah Heep Live, Demons and Wizards and Look at Yourself. Somewhere in that order. I thought the song Magician's Birthday was so cool.

    Not a better opener of an album than Sunrise. The only song not up to the rest of the album is Rain. Not terrible, but not a fan either. Sweet Lorraine still has one of the best synth sounds ever. I like Easy Livin on Demons and Wizards just a bit better as favorite UH songs go. But for overall album, it still is Magician's Birthday. Followed closely by Look At Yourself.

    In addition to Demons and Wizards being my favorite Heep album, that cover is one of my all time favorites too!

    That said, that's what's missing nowadays. Album art, and the size of the art. With today's streaming and cd's the art is either non-existent or postage stamp size. You're not getting the full audio and visual experience that we had "back in the day".

    Look At Yourself, if I have to single one out. But their run from ‘eavy through Sweet Freedom is superb.

    Why isn't all the albums put in chronological order?
