There was a time, when the internet was still too young and not so widespread as today, where a fan, to inquire about his heart's band, had to turn to publications like this, fanzines that were sent by air mail from the Fans Club to fans that are mambers of the same Club. For UH fandìs there was the "Uriah Heep Appreciation Society", created by hisortical UH fans David Owen and Alan Hartley (wich is my great gratitude for the work done and, of course, for this post). I was also member for, at least, one couple of years of the UHAS, and i possess the original issues from number 19 to 26. This fanzine came out from 1991 to 1999, when it was rendered useless by the arrival of an internet access in all our homes. Each issue is packed with reviews, informations about the band, reviews of concerts, pictures vintage and new, interviews with the various present and past members of Uriah Heep.
Taken togheter, these 33 issues of the Uriah Heep Appreciation Society Magazine are a real fanzine encyclopedia of Heep (EncyclHEEPedia?).
This LINK contains the complete collection of the Magazine in PDF format.
If tou are intersted in only some numbers, you can go HERE, in the beautiful site "Travellers in Time", where you can find PDF versions of each number.
This time, a good reading to all
