KEN HENSLEY ‘Running Blind’ (Mystic 2002)

The new solo album by the former Uriah Heep and Blackfoot keyboard player. The album starts with a classical piece and then leads into an all out rock instrumental keyboards and guitars to the fore!

The album is a mixture of all-out rock tracks like the Heep sounding `Free Spirit' (which was originally recorded on his early 80's solo album and is also the name of his new band) and `Let Me Be Me' with its great answer back chorus. `Tell Me' brings to mind classic era Status Quo - clean riffs and a sing-a-long chorus. `Movin' In', the old Blackfoot song written by Hensley, gets another airing and it's one of those songs with a hook that never leaves your head - classic. There are also some mellower acoustic moments including `Finney's Tale'.

John Wetton (URIAH HEEP/ASIA) appears on two tracks including the satire of American life `You've Got It' and also helping out is Dave Kilminster (JOHN WETTON) who adds some tasty guitar solos and Andy Pyle (GARY MOORE/WISHBONE ASH) on bass.

A solid album - plenty of variety and some real standout tracks - `Movin' In', `Free Sprit',`Tell Me'. Fans of Uriah Heep will lap this up and anyone who enjoys quality rock music should check this out.
