RARE & TIMELESS digipak CD 30 March 2018.
Special exclusive acoustic show at The Hospital Club and a new release called, ‘Rare & Timeless’.
Originally from Plumstead, South East London, Ken Hensley has had a 5 decade multi – platinum career which still sees him touring around the world. After a stint in The Gods during the late 1960s, Ken became a vital part of mega rockers Uriah Heep as Hammond organ and synth genius, acoustic and electric guitarist, backing (and occasional) lead vocalist and, perhaps most important of all, the writer of all of the band´s worldwide hits! During the heady and hedonistic days of the 1970s, the ¨HEEPEXPERIENCE¨ meant that every one of Ken’s dreams came true and his life changed, in many ways, forever.
‘Rare & Timeless’ is a new anthology, curated and driven by Ken Hensley himself. Not only has he compiled the anthology with the Heep and Hensley fan in mind, he has also recorded 2 new compositions for the anthology along with an exclusive re-record. Backed with a raft of rare/unreleased tracks and his take on the classic Uriah Heep hit, ‘Lady In Black’.
For ‘Rare & Timeless’ Ken has hand written the tracklist, lyrics and liner notes to make this release a true fan base/collector’s item. Also featured in the package are rare and unseen photos from Ken’s personal archive.
26 February 2018 will see Ken performing an exclusive live acoustic set and Q&A at London’s intimate and refined The Hospital Club in Covent Garden along with a strictly limited meet & greet. ‘Rare & Timeless’ is available through BMG on Digipak CD and is released on the 30th of March 2018.
