"Make no mistake, this album is a must have for any Heep/Byron fan. Every rock fan should take the time to learn the Byron era Heep catalog, particularly "Demons and Wizards". Please buy "Demons and Wizards". Really. It is nothing short of shameful that Heep is not widely recognized as one of the top rock acts of all time and David Byron as one of the top vocalists. Don't even mention guys like Freddie Mercury until you first mention my man DB. There are a few real gems on this album such as "Hit Me With a White One", the story of a cowboy seeking deadly revenge with the assistance of alcohol. Beware of the violent impact of the "guts full of lead" line. Man those Brits love cowboys. Also, mad props to Mick Box for the guitar solo in "Midnight Flyer" - it just doesn't get any better. Finally, I'd like to personally wish the Magician a Happy Birthday!"
Melodic Rocker, Byron's vocals are unmatched to this day

"David Byron's first solo album. Recorded during Uriah Heep's hey day. This recording offers both fun rockers (Steamin along) and a beautiful slow song (Love Song). David Byron was the best rock had to offer, this CD is well worth having."
Basically another Uriah Heep CD. Interesting and rare!

"David Byron released this solo LP in 1975, stemming from his success with Heep. This CD features Mick Box and Lee Kerslake as special guests!?!? Why was this not a Heep album? I'd say about 3/4 of the album is great. David expands his horizons here a bit. The highlights are, "Man Full Of Yesterdays," "Steamin' Along," "Roller Coaster," "Sweet Rock And Roll," "Love Song," and "Midnight Flyer." Worth the price because of it's out-of-print status, and rare characteristics. David later formed Rough Diamond, which was not as successful, and rightly so. David is still a tremendously underrated vocalist even today."
