Bay of Kings is the seventh solo album from former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett. It is Hackett's first full album of classical guitar music, completely instrumental. When Hackett's record company, Charisma Records, refused to release the album over concerns about its commercial viability, Hackett left the label and released Bay of Kings through independent record company Lamborghini Records (started by the Swiss Patric Mimran who owned the car company at that time). It was later reissued by his own Camino Records. His wife at the time, Kim Poor, originally painted a nude portrait for the cover, but it was replaced for the Camino reissue by a painting of her husband.
