Product Description

Product Description

Vocalist, guitarist and principle songwriter Alvin Lee formed The Jaybirds with bassist Leo Lyons in England in the early 1960s. Joined by Chick Churchill on keyboards and Ric Lee on bass, they switched their name to Ten Years After in 1966; a reference to the birth of rock 'n' roll with Elvis Presley a decade earlier. A management contract with Chris Wright's newly formed Chrysalis agency led to a deal with Decca imprint Deram in 1967, and the release of their eponymous debut. Their fourth album, Ssssh., issued in August 1969, coincided with their breakthrough appearance at the Woodstock festival, a definite highlight of the subsequent film and LP of that show. Fifth album Cricklewood Green, issued in April 1970, featured their biggest UK chart hit with 'Love Like A Man'. This was swiftly followed before the end of the year by the release of Watt, recorded at London's Olympic Studios. 1971's A Space In Time showed a change in direction, no doubt inspired by the more acoustic sounds prevalent in the States at the time. As well as producing their biggest Stateside hit with 'I'd Love To Change the World', this set is completed by Rock & Roll Music to the World from 1972, a classic mix of the blues and rock 'n' roll that made the band such a successful live draw, with lead guitarist Alvin Lee hailed as one of the fastest players in the world. This set also includes rare b-sides and single edits, appearing on CD for the first time.

Review

'Ten Years After repotedly attributed thier name to coming along a decade after Elvis and there's definitely something of The King's hip-dislocating flashiness, pride and hauteur about them'. ***
-- Record Collector, September, 2010

5.0 out of 5 stars Excitement to the Power of 10 7 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
Has any blues-rock album started off with a more frantic track than "Bad Scene" (on Ssssssh)? It's just not good for me to listen to it at my age. I saw 10 Years After at the famous 1969 Blues Festival at Bath with the likes of Led Zep, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall's Blues Breakers,the Edgar Broughton Band etc - and 10 Years After were the most exciting (fan of Peter Green though I am). It was totally exhausting just listening to them and I was a hyper active 19 year old then! This 5 album set (Half Ten Years After?) consists of their best albums, in my ever so humble opinion, and there is a great deal of wonderful heavy blues-rock-jazz stuff on it (and just a little drosssss). Has anyone noticed that "Two Time Mama" is more like Canned Heat than Canned Heat? And "Standing at the Station" on "Rock & Roll Music to the World" (Naff title, though) is in my view the most mind-grabbing, body-grabbing, and anything else-grabbing 10 Years After number of all. Must rush to put it on the old gramophone player and gently sway on my zimmer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A LASTING TESTAMENT TO A FALLEN AXE MAN 25 April 2013
By Peter
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As it sadly turned out, this compilation of the most consistent work produced by TYA came ahead of the premature death of Mr Alvin Lee, but will stand the test of time as being the definitive record of one Britain's best blues/jazz bands of the 1960s 70s. I have had all the albums in all of their respective formats through the years, never tiring once of the brilliant music that they produced. Although everyone thinks of Alvin Lee as the showman, but Messrs Lyons, Churchill and Lee were the sublime support for him. Thank you Alvin Lee and Ten Years After for a solid contribution to the world of music.

I have all the albums in vinyl which I bought when they were released, have a number of cd's This is such a good collection do not let it go.the quality is. Alvin Lee is so good.
I love guitar orientated music, Santana , Clapton , Page, Hendrix, the list can go on and on, all brilliant but Alvin just does things better for me.
If you have not seen ten years after at the Marque go and get it and see how good Alvin and the rest of the band are.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very pleasantly surprised 1 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Much better than I expected

I was previously only really familiar with TYA as a live act

Extended live work outs such as I'm Going Home and Woodchoppers Ball were what I considered the norm for this lot

Therefore I was very pleasantly surprised to discover the breadth and scope of their studio stuff was much more than I had imagined, eclectic and far reaching in nature, they cover blues, boogie, rock'n'roll, psych-pop, prog, jazz and folkie acoustic type numbers - all with a degree of aplomb

I now regret having had these boys labelled in my own mind for so long - a remarkable voyage of discovery awaits anyone of a similar mind to me

4.0 out of 5 stars You forget just how good this band was.. 21 Aug 2010
By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
As an introduction to Ten Years After,this is excellent as with the other similar releases for Trower/Groundhogs,the packaging is sparse ,information at a premium,but the music is what we're after.

Of the three collections i feel this one suffers the most from the remaster,some of the earlier tracks production being shown up and the sound a little harsh,that being said Alvin Lee's guitar playing is fantastic,i'd also forgot that he'd done so much acoustic later on,fabulous stuff.

A few of the bluesier early numbers at times remind me of Status Quo with a guitar hero up front,a fantastic collection ,well priced,should sell well.
