5.0 out of 5 stars pure class 4 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
Having been a fan of Ten Years After in the seventies I have recently been catching up with some of his later stuff. This album is in my opinion his best work since TYA.Alvin sounds as if he is enjoying his music again playing with some of his boyhood heroes and boy aren't these songs just brilliant.If you enjoy plain talkin, foot tapping rock and roll played to perfection then this is your album.Album of the year and a must for all 60's and 70's rock fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lee returns to his roots 20 May 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Alvin Lee in Tennessee may surprise some music buyers who are looking for blow out power blues, but it will be a pleasant and worthwhile surprise. The legendary Ten Years After guitarist has returned to his real roots with this album, playing with his own musical heroes Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana from the original Elvis Presley band. This is a collection of rockabilly, boogie, rock and roll and swing delivered with precision, passion and a great deal of fun. Lee is in top form, playing leaner and smoother than ever before, his songwriting is spot on and his vocals are superb. Supposedly this album took only two days to record, a staggering reality when you hear how tight and cohesive the players are. There are no weak spots, every one of the ten new tracks are keepers and the closer, a new version of Lee's Woodstock anthem "I'm Going Home" sets a new standard. This is the album Lee claims he always wanted to make, and he's done himself proud. 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT A GEM ... I'M KNOCKED OUT! 9 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First heard the lead in track 'Let's Boogie' on Geoff Barker's Rock 'n' Roll Party on Bristol Radio down here in the south west, and it was one of those sounds that really makes your hair stand up on end. You suddenly say 'Wow!', then sit up and listen. It doesn't happen very often with so much dross coming out these days, so I took a gamble by buying this from a Company in Germany, and I have to say that it really paid off! Not to be confused with that other wizard of the guitar Albert Lee, the late (very sadly) Alvin Lee produced this fine album of self penned tunes, all performed in a rocking/boogie/bluesy/jazzy sort of style that drives along like crazy, though strictly speaking, its not really 1950s type rock 'n' roll. There's no applause, but it sounds like it was recorded in some club or other (similar to Jeff Beck's efforts), but its just a fine group of musicians having a real ball, boppin' along in the studio -- Scotty Moore's in Tennessee to be precise, and that great man guests on a couple of tracks, along with another of Elvis's original backing band when he was just setting out -- drummer D.J. Fontana, who plays throughout -- so no wonder there's fireworks! Pete Pritchard plays double bass, with Willie Rainsford on piano, plus Tim Hinkley on Hammond organ on one track. Just buy it and try it like I did and you won't be disappointed. Just brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Alvin Lee At His Best, A Masterpiece 23 April 2004
Format:Audio CD
Message: I got my Tennessee today. Just went through the entire CD twiceand how ever high my expectations were, they were "lapped".
This is flippin magnificent. No ok, good, or great, spectacular, masmagnifico. I'm afraid to touch my CD because of the heat come out of itfrom that energy, love, happiness and pure joy inside of it.
Every piece of this CD is incredible from the musicianship, the band andthe great production.
Alvin was truly never better than he sounded on Tennessee, and theenthusiasm in his playing and his voice.
I felt that Alvin took an genre, that he loves and put his magic touch onit and made the genre a little bit wider than it ever was before.
He mastering of the art form he was playing was incredible, but Alvin didit "his" way, adding his heart and soul, style and energy to it. Inspired,fantastic.
What a band to play with, sounds like they have played all their livestoghether. Just perfect together, NO BULLS&^$. This mother is ABOUT THEMUSIC.
I do have to say that the band was flippin incredible, but WilliePritchard on piano, he and Alvin sounded like "peanut and butter", "milkand cookies". Fantastic.
If Alvin ever did not publish that version of "Goin Home", he should havebeen arrested for carrying a concealed weapon.
For now, the best CD of the century.
Could there be a better time for this CD to come out ?

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 20 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've waited ten years for a new studio album from one of my favourite musicians but when I heard this was a rockabilly album I worried it wouldn't be up to par. Alvin Lee should be giving us a blues album, I thought, and I'm certain many another fan did too. Not to worry, this album will not disappoint. Alvin's playing is as thrilling as ever and the band here is without peer. The music is fresh and the delivery fantastic. Standouts include the acoustic Getting Nowhere Fast, the lovely interplay of the guitars between Alvin and Scotty Moore on Take My Time and I'm Gonna Make it with Alvin's extended soloing closing out the song. This isn't Alvin Lee in the Ten Years After style, but don't let that stop you from buying and cherishing this outstanding work.
