Genre: Rock | Style: Hard Rock, Progressive Rock

Uriah Heep's all around utility man just had too much energy and material so he got his mates to back him on his first solo effort. And what a grand album it is. Ballads, quiet moments, and heartache are combined with powerful guitars and Ken's emotional vocals. The version of 'Rain' presented here is quieter than the Heep recording, but I think the instrumentation and vocals allow it to tell a better tale here. The gatefold cover has the library book in question displayed prominently. The slightly psychedelic inner cover has a few photos of Ken posing and playing. Always dynamic with the Heep, this time Ken goes it alone and hits the mark square on dead center.
