Sweet Freedom

Near pristine vinyl, nice high gloss gatefold cover. Includes insert with lyrics.

Sweet Freedom is the sixth studio album by British rock band Uriah Heep, released in 1973 by Bronze Records in the UK and Warner Bros. Records in the US.

The original vinyl release was a gatefold, reproducing the lyrics within. There was also a central page with a photograph of each band member.

It was the first Uriah Heep album to be released by Warner Bros. in the U.S. Sweet Freedom reached No. 91 in the U.S. Billboard 200.[2] It was certified gold by the RIAA on 5 March 1974.

AllMusic's retrospective review noted that Heep "began to explore new styles to flesh out their combination of prog complexity and heavy metal muscle",[3] while Sputnikmusic said, "Sonically, Sweet Freedom expands upon the sound of its predecessors, maintaining its general style for the most part but toying around in the studio a bit more".[4]
