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 were planned to be e-released also on CD but at the moment there is no information if this will happen. The latest releases were in March 2017 and there hasn't been any news on if the series will continue.
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). The second album Salisbury (1971) followed in October. The next three albums Look At Yourself (1971), Demons And Wizards & The Magician's Birthday (both 1972) were released 31st March 2017.
The first single from solo album by Uriah Heep ex-bass guitarist Trevor Bolder was released in digital format in March and can be bought from iTunes or Amazon. Bolder died of cancer in 2013 and his unfinished and unreleased recordings in his home studio are used as the basis for this and the album will feature several guest appearances, e.g Mick Box, Lee Kerslake, Def Leppard vocalist Joe Elliott and Laurie Wisefield of Wishbone Ash among other. A website exists but there is not much info and release date for the album has not been confirmed yet.
John Lawton has recorded a new studio album with reformed Lucifer's Friend and it will be released early 2018.
Ken Hensley has also been busy lately. He has been writing and recording music for a stage musical and he'll be producing a new album for Australian singer Guy Delandro among other things.There will probably also be a new studio album with his band Live Fire released in 2018.
