Let's Talk About Proud Words

Ken Hensley, H-Blockx, Armin Van Buuren, and Modern Talking.

“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).
