English blues-rock band Ten Years After had their biggest success in the the late 1960s and early 1970s. Formed in London in 1967 the band were a quartet consisting of Alvin Lee (guitar / vocals), Chick Churchill (keyboards), Leo Lyons (bass) and Ric Lee (drums). Between 1968 and 1973 the band had eight UK top 40 albums. Positive Vibrations has been digitally remastered at Abbey Road and is a band approved release. This 1974 album was the band’s 8th and final studio LP before they split up. Includes liner notes based on new interviews with founder members Ric Lee, Leo Lyons and Chick Churchill. Disc Two contains seven previously unreleased live tracks.

As a huge fan of Ten Years After in the 1970s this was always the last TYA album for me, so I have some sentimental attachment to the album. Beyond that, however, the original 10 track album is found here supplemented by a live disc containing 6 live tracks and a radio promo. There has been much confusion over the track listing. As far as I can tell all the copies of "Positive Vibrations" pressed have only the 6 live tracks on disc two rather than the 8 listed previously. I'm not sure why the songs were deleted at the last moment? The release of this set was pushed back from October, 2013 to March, 2014 and had my wondering if the set would indeed be released. "Positive Vibrations" got no respect when originally released in 1974 so I found it rather surprising that it was being released as a double set. But then 2010's "Think About The Years" ended with 1972's "Rock and Roll Music To The World," a live version of that album's title track is a highlight of of the bonus disc. Not quite what I expected, but a nice addition to the Ten Years After catalog at any rate. Glad it finally saw light of day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated...to me 27 Jun 2006
By E. A. Ritland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When I was a kid (this was in the early 90s) I was something of a classic rock junkie. My Dad gave me all his old records and I was in hog heaven. I'd spend my $5 allowance per week on 50 cent albums at thrift stores and used book stores. I loved the Beatles especially but would even buy albums by Journey, Bob Seger, The Eagles, and others if they were cheap enough. I liked them well enough but they were cheap and, more importantly, MUSIC, so I loved it.

My Dad had Positive Vibrations in his library and I found it when I was young. This is not their most popular release, but I'm very glad my Dad had it (he became a fan of the band after their awesome performance at Woodstock and their hit A Space In Time album). I used to pretend that I had a radio station back then and I'd pick a few choice cuts to put in regular rotation. My favorite on this one was the title cut. The lyrics, in retrospect, are kind of lame, but the chord progression and melody are classic, just totally fantastic. I wonder if Positive Vibrations is a play on Good Vibrations...

My other favorite cut on this album was Look Into My Life, which features better lyrics and a great riff that is expounded upon very well by the insanely well done drums. Another good melody on this one, as well. Look Me Straight Into The Eyes is another highlight, featuring the band in very tight form and another driving melody.

The rest of the album is pretty good as well, comprised of 50s rock throwback sounding songs (even a great Little Richard cover) and pretty straightforward Ten Years After sounding 70s blues/rock.

I could see how some would say that TYA had run out of steam by this album, as certain parts sound like they're coasting. But that is the view of the jaded music critic; the less cynical music fan will most likely find it enjoyable and worth the money - especially if you can find it in the 50 cent bin at the thrift store!

4.0 out of 5 stars POSITIVELY ROCKS 10 Sep 2004
By Thomas D. Christianson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
GOING BACK TO BIRMINGHAM, YOU'RE DRIVING ME CRAZY, LOOK ME

STRAIGHT INTO THE EYES, I WANTED TO BOOGIE, LOOK INTO MY LIFE,

and IT'S GETTING HARDER are all stand outs in the great tradition

of earlier TEN YEARS AFTER releases. But the band had set the bar

so high by the time of this set that it was close to impossible

to reach on a consistent basis. The remaining four songs are not

quite up to the standards these guys had set for themselves,

which is not to say they are bad songs. If they had been recorded

by any other band of the time, they may very well have been

considered album highlights.

Yes, the band was getting tired by '74 {and tired of eachother}.

Even so, they come through hard enough on this release for it

to be considered a rock classic and an essential entry into any

serious rock collection.

POSITIVE VIBRATIONS? The title almost invokes visions of a

softer, gentler TEN YEARS AFTER, but make no mistake, this c.d.

ROCKS.

Thanks, and keep rockin' to the classics.

Tom

4.0 out of 5 stars BGO remastering for Positive Vibrations 21 Nov 2005
By Clutch Cargo - Published on Amazon.com

Definitely a superior sound. Great hearing these classic TYA tracks come alive. Hit 'I Wanted to Boogie' and crank up the volume. You'll hear keyboards & cowbell percussion not noticeable on the American Chrysalis release. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars TYA RETURNS TO JAZZ/BLUES ROCK FUSION -- EXCELLENT! 21 Jan 2011
By Jimbo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A lot of people pan this 1974 album, but this is Ten Years After returning to their roots -- and doing it superbly.
After Woodstock, everybody got Alvin Lee fever, but TYA'S sound was NEVER a one-man-act. I own all of Lee's post-TYA stuff, and he's never yet put out anything that can touch the TYA stuff as far as I'm concerned. Although "Zoom" is darn good.
That's because TYA was a BAND, where each individual player was a master of their own instrument and played their own material for each song, with the product jelling as music.
What's nice about this CD is that the mixes and arrangements allow each instrument equal presence -- just like it was on "Cricklewood Green" and "Watt" -- not consistently shoving the guitar out front, but making sure it's there when it's got the lead spot.
If I had to compare the sound and style of "Positive Vibrations" I would call it a mix between "Watt" and "A Space in Time" -- truly, two classic TYA albums.
It has the excellent timing changes within the body of songs like "Watt," and great use of acoustic guitar like "A Space in Time."
Bass, keyboard, and drums consistently play distinctive elements of the songs, not just background reference for the lead guitar.
Speaking of which, Lee's work on this album is -- there's no other words for it -- superbly tasteful. He's not trying to show off at all, but works his notes into intricate patterns that, again, are reminiscent of "Watt."
Although 1972's "Rock N Roll Music to the World" is an excellent album, the sound, mix, and production on that album was and is too Alvin Lee-focused, but with "Positive Vibrations" it is the band playing as the band again -- cleanly, and doing it well.
As for the lyrics, they're written with the same flavor and level of skill that any of Lee's other stuff ever was. I like them. He's a guitarist, not Wordsworth.
Anyway, if you listen to this album and think "Watt" and "A Space in Time," and enjoy TYA's jazz/blues rock fusion material, you'll find this album grows on you.
It is really very, very good, and it is a sad statement of the times -- then, and now -- that the legend of Alvin Lee's blistering fingers still overshadow the last great effort the full band put out in their original days.
If you dust this baby off, I think you'll find a true Ten Years After gem.
It does not appear to be remastered, however. Neither BGO's website, nor the CD make that statement. Only the Amazon.com description. But the sound is still excellent because the original was done properly.
Enjoy.
