This one belongs to the rock treasure trove from many points: “Look At Yourself” URIAH HEEP‘s third album featured an eponymous smash song and the band’s grand epic “July Morning”, a fantastic, mirror-adorned cover and some cool guests, Manfred Mann and OSIBISA. That same musicians are to take part in HEEP’s annual festival, The Magician’s Birthday Party, which this year will be a celebration of the said 1971’s LP. The date is November 6th, the place Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London. Surprises await…


Classic Rock Productions continue opening the doors to the past, dusting off great never-before-released performances from the high-flying artists.

Already gathering rave reviews is EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER‘s “Masters From The Vaults” DVD that features the prog mammoths’ footage shot in Paris early in their career. A nutty but enticing stuff!

2. Rondo / Bach Improvisation
3. Drum Solo
4. Nut Rocker
5. Take A Pebble
6. Knife-Edge

“Inside Genesis – A Critical Review 1975-1980” is a completely different thing, a look in the world of GENESIS when they were parting ways with Steve Hackett and becoming post-prog stadium masters. Presenting previously unreleased interviews with the band and the critics’ words, the DVD is sprinkled with rare performances from the Duke tour including:

– Dance On A Volcano
– Deep In The Motherlode
– Follow You Follow Me
– Duke’s End
– I Know What I Like

From progressive to aggressive, SLADE‘s “The Singles – A Critical Review 1971-1991” is a glam bonanza: 21 hit singles in video form – unseen performances and interviews, live kicks and TV cuts. Everything a fan can dream of.


April 14th, on Ritchie Blackmore’s birthday, a long-overdue remastered edition of DEEP PURPLE’s “Burn” is out to mark this legendary album’s 30th anniversary. While it would be great to hear the tracks in pristine quality, there’s nothing rare on the dics, the bonuses being “Coronarias Redig” (a “Might Just Take Your Life”single B-side) and remixes of “Burn”, “Mistreated”, “You Fool No One” and “Sail Away”. With the recordings of the “Burn” rehearsals in existence, they were considered too poor-sounding to be released. A pity.


It’s been so long since the legendary Animal, Eric Burdon released a new material. What is that he’s been doing all those years except for playing live? The answer might lie in the title of the growler’s fresh album, “My Secret Life”, out now. Can’t kill the Boogieman? Sure, you can’t!

1. Once Upon A Time
2. Motorcycle Girl
3. Over The Border
4. The Secret
5. Factory Girl
6. Highway 62
7. Jazzman
8. Black And White World

10. Devilside
11. Broken Records

The covers’ album has been on DEF LEPPARD minds for some years now, but the summer will finally see the result of that glam reverie. Yes, glam – that’s the point of the still untitled record which will have the following rare gems on it:

1. The Rocker (THIN LIZZY)
