DAVID BYRON shot to worldwide fame as lead singer for URIAH HEEP between 1969 and 1976 when he quit the band after infighting between him and Ken Hensley.
David then formed ROUGH DIAMOND followed by The BYRON BAND and then embarked on a solo career. Sadly David died in 1985 of allegedly alcohol related complications.
The tracks on this album were recorded between 1980 and 1982 with ROBIN GEORGE who has worked over the years with an impressive array of rock giants (ROBERT PLANT, GLEN HUGHES, PHILIP LYNOTT, PETE WAY to name a few) and are a testament to both individuals of their stunning performances and Robin’s much acclaimed song writing skills.
Crank up loud and enjoy!

...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)

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

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
