Magician's Birthday album for sale Product Description



Magician's Birthday album for sale by Uriah Heep was released Jan 04, 2005 on the Sanctuary label. Uriah Heep's 1972 release, THE MAGICIAN'S BIRTHDAY, followed in the same direction as its predecessor one year earlier, DEMONS AND WIZARDS--mystical lyrical themes are merged with heavy guitar riffs and prog-rock organ/synth explorations. Sonically, THE MAGICIAN'S BIRTHDAY is a tad more rough around the edges than DEMONS (keyboardist Ken Hensley is given more of a free reign on this album as well), but it's still unmistakably Uriah Heep. The album closing, ten and a half-minute title track is a bona fide Heep epic (with many mood shifts), while "Sweet Lorraine" catches the band at their most rough and rocking.2003 expanded deluxe edition reissue of 1972 album includes nine bonus tracks, 'Silver White Man' (Instrumental Version - Prev. Unreleased), 'Crystal Ball' (Prev. Magician's Birthday CD music contains a single disc with 17 songs.   ...See Full Description

The Magician's Birthday, or Dark Mirth Day?
“The Magician’s Birthday”, Uriah Heep’s fifth album, was recorded in September/October of 1972 and it’s release followed closely on the heels of the band's landmark album, “Demons and Wizards”.

A strong solid release
Though not as impressive as "Demons and Wizards", "The Magician's Birthday" is still a strong release that continued Uriah Heep's early 70s successful streak.

I was 14
Loved it since i first heard it, still have the original vinyl! Great moody guitar riffs, changeovers, steps, and drops! Lyrics were something you had to really listen to-to follow the tale of the wizards quest.
