A unique solo album from former Gods and Uriah Heep man Ken Hensley.

Ken Hensley’s critically acclaimed final album is represented on colour vinyl – white with black splatter.

Few artists can claim to have had a musical career and pedigree as long, varied and impressive as songwriter, keyboard player, guitarist, vocalist and multi- instrumentalist Ken Hensley. After forming The Gods in mid-1960s London with future Stones and Mayall guitarist Mick Taylor, Ken made brief appearances with Toe Fat and Head Machine before joining Uriah Heep in time for the band’s debut album, ‘Very ‘Eavy… Very ‘Umble’. His solo career kicked off in 1973 with ‘Proud Words On A Dusty Shelf’, and Ken has remained as busy and prolific as ever to the present day, with sales in excess of 45 million albums.

‘My Book Of Answers’ started with a chance encounter at Alicante airport on a flight bound for Moscow in 2018, when Russian businessman Vladimir Emelin approached Ken. Vladimir didn’t have a background in the music industry, and had never made a record, but had been a big rock fan all his life, with a special appreciation of Ken.

From translations of Vladimir’s Russian words into English, Ken fashioned choruses and verses until he had the basis for nine original new songs. The main stumbling block to starting this record was finding the time to create it. And then the pandemic happened. Thankfully advances in modern technology meant that this album could be created and completed remotely.
