…the perfect album for tennis raquet air guitarists

www.tnt-audio.com (July 2010)


This re-mastered release comes with excellent art work…and three bonus tracks…For fans of David Byron both On the Rocks and Lost & Found (also available on Angel Air) are absolute must-haves.

Jeff Perkins, Eurorock (July 2010)


…overall you end up with quite a satisfying listen that proves another positive reminder of one of rock music’s great voices…

Bill Leslie, www.getreadytorock.com (July 2010)


..Dismissed at the time as nothing more than a collection of faded glories from a has-been, in actuality Byron’s singing almost takes him back to the great days of Heep, while the songs suggest an artist revitalised…

Classic Rock magazine (Summer 2010)


…an absolutely cracking album full of Bluesy Rock driven by great guitar and keyboards…a great reminder of a fine, and sadly missed, rock frontman.

Classic Rock Society (July 2010)


…for David, this album demonstrates that any thoughts of him being written off for good at this stage of his career were a bit premature, because when the spirit moved him and he was on top of his game, David Byron was definitely one of the best vocalists the rock world has ever seen.

…David was born an entertainer, anyone can tell

Kevin Bryan, Stirling Advertiser (July 2010)


…this 1981 album is a great showcase for…David Byron’s larger-than-life approach…

This collaboration with guitarist Robin George also boasted some fine work from saxist Mel Collins…

Kevin Bryan, various regional papers (January 2011)

Classic Rock magazine (January 2011)

…the charismatic Byron was clearly still singling well at this point in his career and in Robin George he had found an ideal guitarist to give the material a more contemporary edge…Detailed sleeve notes and previously unseen photographs make this a very worthwhile package…

Sea of Tranquility (November 2009)


…a nice slice of 70-style English blues rock cut in 1982…

E-Gear (November 2009)


If…you are a diehard fan of both Heep and David Byron’s solo work, then you’ll probably want to add this one to your collection…

Ryan Sparks, classicrockrevisited.com (November 2009)


…This is enjoyable rock; great vocal, great guitar and good keys feature…A little slice of history, well worth exploring for fans of the man’s music.

Classic Rock Society, (Nov/Dec 2009)


Disc one has studio recordings from 1982, with a straight-up hard rock style more reminiscent of Bad Company than Heep…Disc two contains 6 tracks from 1981 rehearsal sessions…There are also 14 tracks recorded live in Liverpool in 1980…

Heavy (December 2009)


…a lovingly produced and remastered set which is further enhanced by the informative and heartfelt sleeve notes

Classic Eurorock (blog) by Jeff Perkins (December 2009)


……while the demos on disc one are not the strongest material of his career, his unique voice still had the power to lift it…

Classic Rock Magazine, (January 2010)


Definitely a set of CDs for his most ardent fans and anyone who wishes to delve into Classic 80′s British Rock

The Mayfair Mall e-zine (January 2010)


Disc one has studio recordings from 1982, with a straight-up hard rock style more reminiscent of Bad Company than Heep…

Heavy, (December 2009)


‘…Lost & Found’ does reclaim Byron’s Uriah Heep capacity for vocal dynamics and rock sensibilities…’

TNT Audio ( www.tnt-audio.com ) (February 2010)


All in all, a fitting tribute to Byron

www.metal-nose.org (March 2010)


The 2 CD set features a workmanlike blend of live and studio material…

Kevin Bryan, Mid Sussex Chronicle (May 2010)


A 2CD set of unissued recordings with CD1 being a collection of original studio recordings from 1982 that feature people like guitarist, Robin George. It’s more like a blues-rock band and puts me in mind of Humble Pie being fronted by Mr. Byron as opposed to Mr. Marriott in fact there’s even a song called ‘Fool For A Pretty Face’ on there a different song altogether though!!

The second CD features a rehearsal from London 1981 and a gig from Liverpool 1980 with many songs from the 1st CD on there like ‘Safety In Numbers’. Good to hear the classic Uriah Heep numbers ‘July Morning’ & ‘Sweet Lorraine’ as well. Then there’s the bonus track ‘Angel Song’ that is by far the best number on there and I can only guess that David is referring to Johh Lennon on there as he mentions ‘Jealous Guy’.

He was a man way too talented to leave usa way too soon in his career so it’s good to hear these numbers now. One that all ‘Heep fans should fight over. 8/10
