5.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the Rolling Stone comments, 12 May 2003
This review is from: A Space In Time (Audio CD)
I was astonished at the comments attributed to Rolling Stone regarding this album. It is excellent. It is smoother and not as hard rocking as some of the earlier TYA releases, but still has plenty of places where Alvin Lee can show his stuff. I'd Love To Change The World was the radio single that is still heard on classic rock stations. The rest of the material is solid throughout with a mixture of tempos. Baby Won't You Let Me rocks as hard as nearly anything in the TYA catalog, and the softer songs are just incredible. I wore out three copies of the LP before the CD was released. .

5.0 out of 5 stars finally available on CD, 12 May 2003
This review is from: On The Road to Freedom (Audio CD)
On The Road To Freedom is considered by many to be the finest Alvin Lee "solo" album (meaning without Ten Years After). The pairing with Mylon LeFevre works surprisingly well, and the album is replete with talented guest artists, including George Harrison (credited as Hari Georgeson), Steve Winwood, Ron Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Mick Fleetwood. Those who consider A Space In Time to be the best TYA album will likely enjoy this one as well. It is more "laid back" than much of Alvin Lee's work with TYA, and is comparable in significant ways to the follow-up Alvin Lee album In Flight. The Alvin Lee web site has cited legal difficulties as the reason for the overly long delay in the release of this album on CD, but today is the date of its official release on CD. It's a real gem.
