Here is an above average sounding complete FM copy of URIAH HEEP's preformance recorded on the FIREFLY tour of 1977 in the USA. It has been said that John Lawton came into Uriah Heep already knowing all the lyrics to all of the old songs. If that is true, then that is probably why he is able to deliver the "Byron" era songs with such "passion" and "conviction". Just listen to these versions of "The Wizard", "July Morning" or "Sweet Lorraine" for evidence of this line up's ability to capture the "magic" of "Classic" UH.
