“‘Things’ shows Ken’s versatility and brilliant guitar playing, he certainly ranks in the top 10 of acoustic guitar players in this country . The title track ‘Things’ with drums and bass is very rocky, humour on ‘The Jesus Army’, virtuoso playing on ‘Catnip Rag’. It’s all there.” Richard Ellin, R2 magazine.
