The CD opens with a highlight "Still On The Road To Freedom". Classic Alvin songwriting and playing (also love the background vocals). Mirrors its namesake in many ways. Tasty acoustic/electric song.
"Listen To Your Radio Station" is another classic cut with cool key changes, a bluesy funky feel - and I believe the late, great Ian Wallace on drums. Very nice song.
"Midnight Creeper" is a mid-tempo bluesy lick-fest with Alvin in fine form on the guitar and vocals. Hard not to like this cut either.
"Save My Stuff" is another bluesy finger snapper with Alvin in fine form on harmonica.
"I'm A Lucky Man" is a 50s romp and "Walk On, Walk Tall" is a very nice acoustic number (another highlight).
"Blues Got Me So Bad" - is exactly that. A blues tune with bite. "Song of the Red Rock Mountain" is a very pretty acoustic guitar instrumental.
"Nice and Easy" - I thought it was JJ Cale when I first heard this cut. Tasty lyrics, singing and playing. Highlight.
The albums last four songs are every bit as strong as the rest of the record and deserve many listens. There is a hidden bonus track instrumental at the end.
Overall: 4 to 4 1/2 stars for a very very very good record. I hope he tours it.
Try this if you are a fan - you won't be disappointed.
George: Then Play On.
ccrowds all over the world. Thier musis stayed the same but after WoodStock everyone got to hear and see what a great band Ten Years After is. (And they are still not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?)
Back to the record at hand, Still on the road to Freedom is a Fantastoic record and has a wide range of style of music the Alvin has played throughout is carree. The title track is excellent Still on the road to Freedom. the 1st. On the road to freedom was a great break away from what Ten Years After was doing but still Alvin kept his guitar style at the top of his game but in a new direction.
This record has your Britsh Blues Flavor, Rock-a-belly, Ten Years After, Alvin Style Regga, Plan and simple a well produced record and very well played and written.
I am happy that Alvin went back to this type of record as I am and was a huge fan when "On the road to freedom" 1st. came out to show us another side to
this excellent talented musician and guitarest.
This is a must have record like the New Taj mahal, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, make sure you get all 3! and you will be set for your Fall music!
If the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame people are reading this, What are you waiting for? Ten Years After must be placed in the R&R Hall of fame now!
Alvin Lee is in the same catagory of guitar playing as, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jeff beck, Jimmy Page, Tommy Bolin, george harrison, and Jesse Ed davis!
Thank You ,
Enjoy This record,
