“I always write lyrics first and the rhythm and the melody come from the lyrics. It always comes from the lyrics: words have rhythm and words have melody.” - Ken Hensley
Proud Words on a Dusty Shelf is simultaneously a lost Uriah Heep album and a solo statement by Ken Hensley, which offers something a bit different yet totally familiar. Fly Eyes, the American debut album (and third overall) by H-Blockx is a blend of rap-metal with traditional melodic metal. Although not their best-known album, this is a must-have for every metal fan. Armin Van Buuren's brilliant second album Shivers includes the successful singles "Shivers" (featuring Susana) and "Serenity" (featuring Jan Vayne). Another classic is Modern Talking's Let's Talk About Love (The 2nd Album), which features the hit single “Cheri Cheri Lady”. Besides, we have two wonderful coloured re-releases, Latin Quarter's Radio Africa (Best Of) (crystal clear vinyl) and Nina Simone's Little Girl Blue Remixed (transparent pink vinyl).
This collection features tracks taken from the three albums 'Modern Times', 'Mick And Caroline' and 'Swimming Against The Stream'. Among the many highlights on this album are “A Slow Waltz For Chile”, attacking the Pinochet regime in that country, “Sandinista”, taking up the Nicaraguan cause from The Clash, “No Rope As Long As Time”, which illustrated the futility of violence in South Africa (and the West's concern for Mandela and Soweto).
Proud Words on a Dusty Shelf featured (ex) Uriah Heep keyboard player Ken Hensley, bassist Gary Thain and drummer Lee Kerslake. It was released when Uriah Heep was at the peak of its rising to fame.
Bethlehem Records' most famous release is the 1958 debut album by Nina Simone, Little Girl Blue. When Dutch DJ Maestro got the chance to remix this album, he was thrilled. Soon he got the idea to ask some of his favorite producers to collaborate, like Mop Mop, Renegades of Jazz, Gramophonedzie, Fab Samperi, The Reflex, and Mees Dierdorp.
