Good point @Ar-Pharazon. Some of the tracks that have been released in final form do sound a little better. The tracks that made it to Conquest (Fools and Feelings), are in my opinion, much weaker than the bootleg version. Having given the album another listen. it sounds much better than I remember it. John Lawton's singing is top notch and the arrangements are adequate, but not the Uriah Heep that I love. There are a couple of songs that could fit on Innocent Victim or Firefly albums. But overall for me the album is about in the same league as Fallen Angel which I hardly ever listen to. Maybe Conquest would have been a much better album if John Lawton had sung on it instead of John Sloman.
