A legendary live recording,

This review is from: Ten Years After Live at Fillmore East (Audio CD)
This live recording from 1970 shows guitarist and (less impressive) vocalist Alvin Lee at his very best. In particular, this is evident on the two long tracks "I Can't Keep From Crying Sometimes" (disc 1) and even more on the aggressive blues rock song "Help Me" (disc 2), which contains one of the most impressive and energetic guitar solos ever heard in rock history. Some would probably say that it's "too much", but technically speaking it doesn't get any better than this! And the sound is absolutely brilliant. The other official TYA live recording named "Recorded Live" (1972) lacks some of the impressive energy found on this recording, so "Live at the Fillmore East" is the most important of TYA's live performances.
