Eager to Please - Ken Hensley

Eager to Please
A release of a newly re-mastered edition of KEN HENSLEY's second solo album. Recorded in 1975 and originally released on the Bronze label, Eager to Please was Hensley's solo follow up to Proud Words on a Dusty Shelf. The resulting album was equal to anything recorded by URIAH HEEP at their peak and features wonderful material such as Through the Eyes of a Child, Secret , The House on the Hill and Winter or Summer . This reissue adds the single track Who Will Sing for You as a bonus track and joins Hensley's 1973 solo offering Proud Words on a Dusty Shelf , also released this month, as Esoteric's overview of Hensley's Bronze solo albums.

·       A legendary figure in rock, Ken Hensley has a long and illustrious career, having recorded with and performed with acts as diverse as British 60s psyche rockers The Gods to southern American rockers Blackfoot… but Ken is probably best known for the albums he made in the 1970s as a musician and songwriter with British heavy rock institution, Uriah Heep; from 1970’s "Very ’Eavy Very ’Umble” until 1980’s "Conquest”.
·       He has also guested with bands as diverse as Cinderella, WASP, and Therion! And a special mention to Toe Fat that Ken formed with Cliff Bennett. 
·       In 2006 he formed Live Fire, providing his trademark keyboards, guitar and vocals, alongside Norwegian Ken Ingwersen on guitar, initially just to perform Ken’s songs live.  
·       In 2009, Tom Arne Fossheim joined as drummer, then in 2011 Ken Hensley & Live Fire released their first studio album "Faster”, followed by the self-explanatory "Live!!” earlier this year.  
·       Produced by Ken, "Trouble” is not only his third record fronting the band Live Fire, but now one of over 50 albums Ken Hensley has recorded or featured on!  
·       Kicking off with ‘Ready To Die’, and with a line-up now completed by Roberto Tiranti on bass, "Trouble” will be promoted across Europe with concerts as far apart as Germany, Finland, Spain and the Ukraine.
