Live Tales - Ken Hensley

Live Tales
Recorded live at ¨La Caja Negra¨ Las Cigarreras, Alicante, Spain 20th August 2012
A brand new unreleased live recording by the legendary Ken Hensley, including songs from his Uriah Heep days as well as from his successful solo career,
Ken continues to tour the world and spends most of the year abroad playing to his large and expanding fan base.
All of our previous Ken Hensley albums have sold consistently well and we expect this to be no different.
A NOTE FROM KEN:
"I really like doing these solo shows, although the whole experience is obviously totally different from, say, a Live Fire concert. Truth is... I just love to play and sing! If I stop to think about it though, the idea of being on stage alone, with just my acoustic guitars, my piano and my book of songs is quite intimidating.... but that´s where the secret is... I don’t think! I prepare and I practice so I am as ready as I can be and so I can relax and enjoy being with you and playing and singing for you. YOU are the reason I do what I do. YOU are the reason I am on stage and in the studio, so I am happy to dedicate this CD to YOU, with grateful thanks, from the bottom of my heart. God bless.” Ken

Love & Other Mysteries
THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM BY KEN HENSLEY (EX URIAH HEEP)

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the latest release on their front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, dedicated to new releases by both new acts and established artists. "Love and Other Mysteries” by KEN HENSLEY is the result of three years spent in the studio, crafting an intensely personal album. Known by many from his days as a writer and member of URIAH HEEP, the writer of such classics as "Lady in Black” and "July Morning” has created his deepest work to date. He explains; "No-one is free from emotion and its effects. No one. I am a poet and songwriter with the dreams and ambitions of an 11-year-old boy still running rampant in my heart. The songs on this CD came to me as naturally as breathing, from the source I have always believed in and in which I now believe more strongly than ever. I think this CD represents a very positive shift in my musical focus and for me it is exciting to travel new and unexplored territory. It must be every songwriter´s dream to be able to make a record in this way! I know it was mine. The lyrics are the single most important thing on this album and it is these words that were permitted to produce and guide the direction of the album”. "Love and Other Mysteries” sees Ken joined by guest vocalists including Glenn Hughes, Santra Salkova, Sarah Rope, Irene Forniciari & Roberto Tiranti – All of whom compliment a record that is fulfilling and sincere in its message.

Live!! 2CD
A legendary figure in rock, Ken Hensley has a long and varied career, having played with and fronted acts as diverse as British 60s psyche rockers The Gods to American southern rockers Blackfoot… but Ken is probably best known for the albums he made in the 1970s as musician and songwriter with British rock institution, Uriah Heep, from 1970’s "Very ’Eavy Very ’Umble” until 1980’s "Conquest”.
In 2006 he formed Live Fire, providing his trademark keyboards, guitar and vocals, alongside Norwegians Ken Ingwersen,Eirikur Hauksson, Sid Ringsby & Willy Bendiksen, initially just to perform Ken’s songs live.
In 2009, Tom Arne Fossheim replaced Willy Bendiksen as drummer, and continues with the band, then in 2011 Ken Hensley & Live Fire released their first studio album "Faster”.
Produced by Ken himself, "LIVE!!” captures Ken Hensley & Live Fire on their 2012 European tour at dates in Switzerland and Germany whilst promoting "Faster”.
Presented as a deluxe double CD package, this classic set kicks off with ‘Set Me Free (From Yesterday)’ and ‘The Curse’ from the "Faster” album. "Live!!” is also a treat for fans of all things Ken, including unique versions of Uriah Heep classics ‘Look At Yourself’, ‘July Morning’, ‘Easy Living’ and ‘Gypsy’, and even delving as far back as ‘Rain’, originally recorded for his debut solo LP, "Proud Words On A Dusty Shelf”.
