High and Mighty is Uriah Heep's ninth studio album, released in June 1976. By many fans, it is considered to be the last true Uriah Heep album, as it was the last to be recorded with the band's original singer, David Byron. He was fired from the band soon later at the demand of Ken Hensley, who couldn't stand Byron's erractic behaviour caused by his alcohol abuse. Byron was asked to rejoin the band in 1980, but refused.
He died in 1985 of alcohol related complications.
It was also the second and last album to feature the bassist, John Wetton.
The album was remastered and re-released in 2004 with 8 bonus tracks.
High and Mighty presents more pop-oriented side of Uriah Heep. It doesn't feature any lenghty songs and the lyrical content of the album lacks the fantastical element of the band's previous releases.
The album was recorded by the line-up that featured:
David Byron (his last appearance with the band)
John Wetton (his last appearance with the band) Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply...
