...Very 'Eavy ...Very 'Umble

Sealed brand new repressing housed in a gatefold cover. Made in the UK.

...Very 'Eavy ...Very 'Umble is the debut album by British rock band Uriah Heep, released in 1970.

It was issued in the United States as Uriah Heep with different sleeve artwork, and with the track "Bird of Prey" in place of "Lucy Blues". The album shows the band trying out various genres – a mix of heavy metal and progressive rock – rather than the hard rock that they would become known for on later albums.[1]

The album was generally panned by the mainstream critical press upon its release, although it has since been acknowledged as an early classic of the heavy metal genre. Rolling Stone magazine's Melissa Mills began her review by saying, "If this group makes it I'll have to commit suicide. From the first note you know you don't want to hear any more."[2]

The original vinyl release was a gatefold sleeve, featuring David Byron on the front sleeve, almost unrecognisable beneath cobwebs.

The album was first released on the Vertigo label in the UK, as was the follow-up Salisbury, but both were quickly reissued by Bronze when the band signed to that label.

Tracks 3 and 8 were recorded as Spice songs, with Colin Wood on keyboards. When Ken Hensley joined Spice in late 1969, the tracks were not re-recorded.
