The complete Uriah Heep back catalogue originally released on Bronze Records 1970-1983 was re-released in 2015 on vinyl and during 2016 & 2017 they will be re-released on CD. These are all double CD editions with original LP on CD1 and bonus tracks on CD2. The campaign started in September 2016 with the new 2-disc anthology Your Turn To Remember: The Definitive Anthology 1970-1990 and the classic debut Very 'Eavy ... Very 'Umble (1970).
