Hensley, Ken - Proud Words On A Dusty Shelf Proud Words On A Dusty Shelf
Pop New - LP SRM-1-661 Mercury
Factory Sealed And Pristine 1973 Gatefold Original. “This Is The Solo Debut Of Uriah Heep's Resident Keyboardist And Top Songwriter, But It Isn't The Heavy Metal Epic One Might Expect. In Fact, Proud Words On A Dusty Shelf Uses Electric Guitar Sparingly And Instead Goes For A Moody Soundscape Built On Acoustic Guitar And Piano. Songs Like "Black Hearted Lady" And "The Last Time" Even Evoke A Bit Of A Country And Western Feel, Thanks To Their Use Of Mellow-Sounding Slide Guitar. This Subtle Sonic Style Puts Hensley's Songwriting In The Spotlight And That Is A Good Thing Because Each Of The Songs Is Well-Crafted And Tuneful: A Subtle Combination Of Acoustic Guitar And Synthesizer Brings Out The Haunting, Delicately Crafted Melody Of "From Time To Time" And "Black Hearted Lady" Effectively Evokes Its Mood Of Heartbreak With A Descending Acoustic Guitar Riff. The Album's Subtlety Also Highlights The Strength Of Ken Hensley's Vocals, Which Often Sound Close To His Uriah Heep Bandmate David Byron. However, Proud Words On A Dusty Shelf Doesn't Fully Abandon The Rock And Roll Muscle That Made Uriah Heep Famous: "Fortune," Is A Mid-Tempo Rocker Whose Complex, Dramatic Arrangement Gets The Closest To Sounding Like Uriah Heep And "Cold Autumn Sunday," Subtly Deploys Some Heavy Electric Guitar And Pounding Drums To Convey Its Mood Of Churning Emotions (Note: This Track Also Became An FM Radio Favorite). “ Donald A.
