Ken Hensley - Eager To Please

Esoteric Recordings present the re-mastered edition of Ken's second solo album. Recorded in 1975 and originally released on the Bronze label and the follow up to Proud Words on a Dusty Shelf.

The resulting album was equal to anything recorded by URIAH HEEP at their peak and features wonderful material such as Through the Eyes of a Child, Secret, The House on the Hill and Winter or Summer.

This reissue adds the bonus track Who Will Sing for You and joins Hensley's 1973 solo offering Proud Words on a Dusty Shelf, also released on Esoteric's overview of Hensley's Bronze solo albums.
