5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Alvin Lee 25 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This sampler of Alvin Lees work covers 25 years of raw rock and blues played the way it should be. A look at the comprehensive information does though hold a few surprises of who he plays with during his musical career. This is a great collection from the man who was named the 'fastest guitar in the west' and a few of his friends. This collection showcases some of his best work including 'the bluest blues', 'love like a man' 'hear me calling' and a different version of 'I'm going home'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless significance 22 May 2010
By Beach Beauchamp - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's funny how some music can transcend time and space- This is one such release from Alvin Lee, the former frontman for "Ten Years After", one of the premier groups to come out of the aftermath of the British Invasion- The range of selections on this double cd offering goes from basic 60s rock and roll to the pop sounds of the 70s to some great blues work that is essential to any musical era-
There is music on this release that can be appreciated by all, regardless of one's musical preference- This cd is musically sound and the vocals are first rate-
Anyone with roots in the 60s and 70s should make this a must have! And while you are at it, pick up a copy of "Ten Years After", 'Anthology', you'll be glad you did!

4.0 out of 5 stars Players' picks 17 May 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on

This is an interesting mix that was part of Alvin Lees' defining himself after TYA. Makes for quite an insight into the music that he thinks defines him. All really good choices for anyone who doesn't have a good collection of Alvin Lee (with and without) Ten Years After, or just wants a good CD to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best guitar player there with a mix of his solo work 27 Oct 2003
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Alvin Lee is simply the most underrated and under-appreciated guitarist/singer/song writer/musician in the business .
His riviting performance at Woodstock labeled him as a type as kind of a one gtrick pony. And after doing all of the singing/writing/lead and only guitarwork/arranging for the sound he carved out for Ten Years After, people have know idea how much he was held back by people screaming "I'm going home" at concerts and by the inferior musicians who Alvin carried who were way too inflexible to play all of the music that the prolific Alvin Lee wrote. Good musicians, but totally lacked creativity, but meshed great with that one sound that Ten Years After produced. There is a reason that none of the three never were able to back up anyone or hook up with a new band.
Alvin's music frang some great old type rock, (Jennie, Jennie) to one of the most beautiful, perfect blues songs with George Harrison playing a searing slide guitar The Bluest Blues. Alvin also is fantastic with his spiritiual ballad and a classic album, just got released on a CD, backed by Steve Winwood, George Harrison, Ron Wood with " On the Road to Freedom " Made back in 1972, wiht Alvin writing a wonderful ballad and his first venture away from the limitations of the flexibility and talent level of Ten Years After.
Be aware, that Alvin just got back from Nashville and cut an album with his boyhood idols. It will be a rockbilly album of Alvin's own songs, cut at Scotty Moores place with Scotty playing a some songs with Alvin along with the rest of the guys who backed Elvis. It is going to be great. To learn more, you can check out [...]
Fans be careful, there is a phoney, damaged group caling themselves Ten Years After that is a revival act with some 25 year old nobody imitating Alvin's licks. It is pretty ugly, but don't be fooled. Ten Years After broke up years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great CD of Alvin Lee's 12 April 2013
By Sherry - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is a little rockier than his blues CD but it is really good. What a talented guitarist and his singing wasn't bad either. It is just a shame that we just lost this talented man recently. Get this CD while you still can it is worth it!
