  • Alvin Lee – The Bluest Blues


    Alvin Lee- gtr, voc; George Harrison- slide gtr; Steve Gould- bass; Tim Hinkley- hammond organ; Alan Young- drums; Steve Grant- keys

    From the album ‘Keep On Rockin’ (originally ‘NINETEENNINETYFOUR’, 1993)

    Alvin says… one of my favourite tracks from my album ‘1994’. It has George Harrison on slide guitar and is one of the best solos he ever played. It’s a masterpiece, so sensitive. Hearing George made me play more sensitive too!
    I’m very proud of this one. It was recently voted one of the best blues songs ever recorded. I’m sure B.B”King wouldn’t agree with that! It’s got a classical style piano played by Steve Grant, and George Harrison plays a slide guitar solo that is one of my all time favourites. He created such a tender, melodic solo and I had been playing kind of angry solos, y’know? After hearing George I had to change my whole approach and started to play much more melodically. As a result, I played a great solo too. George may not have been the most clever and nimble of guitarists, but he didn’t just wiggle his fingers and play a succession of notes, he actually I wrote a tune while doing a solo. He was so eloquent on guitar that he inspired me to play something eloquent too.

  • Alvin Lee - The Bluest Blues


    Nineteen Ninety Four album 1994 / Digitally Remastered 2013.
    Alvin Lee (born Graham Anthony Barnes 19.12.1944 – 6.03.2013) was an English singer and guitarist, best known as the lead vocalist and lead guitarist of the blues rock band Ten Years After.
    Alvin says… one of my favourite tracks from my album ‘1994’. It has George Harrison on slide guitar and is one of the best solos he ever played (2:13 - 3:08). It’s a masterpiece, so sensitive. Hearing George made me play more sensitive too! I’m very proud of this one.

    I couldn't wait to see you - waiting by the door
    There's no one there to meet me - and your clothes are on the floor
    Sorry if I hurt you - and I made you cry
    Couldn't stand to see you - with another guy
    It's the bluest blues - and it cuts me like a knife
    It's the bluest blues - since you walked out of my life

    Couldn't really tell you - how you hurt my pride
    Something broke within me - down inside
    I never knew I loved you - til you went away
    Now the loneliness surrounds me - everyday
    It's the bluest blues - since you walked out of the door
    It's the bluest blues - cause I won't see you no more

    I'm sorry if I failed you - if somehow I'm to blame
    It's the bluest blues I'm feeling - it's a cryin' shame
    I just can't live without you - face another day
    It's the bluest blues I'm feeling, and it's here to stay
    It's the bluest blues, and it cuts me to the bone
    It's the bluest blues, when you can't find your way home

    Alvin Lee- gtr, voc; Richard Newman- drums; Pete Pritchard- bass
    from the album The Last Show (2013)

    The 2012 concert which turned out to become Alvin’s last ever show happened after a nine month break since the band had played together and had to be done without even a sound check. It was recorded on a handheld ‘bootleggers’ device (albeit by the sound engineer). However, when Alvin heard the footage he wanted to make it available for the fans. Buy it here:

    Extraordinary blues/rock guitarist Alvin Lee had already begun pursuing his solo career in earnest by the time he returned for the 28th and final U.S. tour of the original Ten Years After. Upon completion of the 1975 tour, TYA would split up and not return until a reunion was staged in 1989.

    Although a cult fave, the band burst onto the world music scene after it appeared in the documentary film, Woodstock, one of whose highlights was the performance of I'm Goin' Home by Lee and the band. This show, recorded at Bill Graham's Winterland ballroom, opens with a rockin' (but incomplete) version of the band's radio hit, Rock & Roll Music To The World. They follow it with one their classics, Love Like A Man. Muddy Water's Good Morning Little School Girl, is next, and leads to long and tasty slow blues.

    A 20-minute version of I Can't Keep From Crying Sometimes is followed by a 12- minute but incomplete I'm Going Home. After a souped-up version of Chuck Berry's Sweet Little Sixteen, Lee and the band close with two of their own hits: Choo Choo Mama and Baby, Won't You Let Me Rock 'n' Roll You.

    One of the biggest blues/rock acts on the planet between 1969 and 1974, Ten Years After could attribute their far reaching success to two things: Promoter Bill Graham and their appearance in the landmark music documentary Woodstock. Graham was among the earliest U.S. promoters to book the band, and he made them a staple act at both the Fillmore East and West, and of course, Winterland.

    By the time this show was recorded. TYA had become primarily a vehicle for Alvin Lee's blistering guitar work, its songs comprised of equal parts rock, blues, and jazz. In 1972, the band would leave Decca Records (the label that signed them in 1967), and move to Columbia's corporate home. Columbia would take the band in a more radio friendly/pop driven direction (hence, the hit single I'd Love To Change The World). Frustrated with the popular music trend, Alvin Lee left the band, which disbanded soon after the second Columbia release in 1975.

    The original lineup made one reunion LP and did one more tour in 1988/89 before disbanding again. In 2003, Ric Lee assembled the group again, although Alvin would not participate. He was replaced by guitarist Joe Gooch, and the band is still recording and touring today.

    Alvin Lee- gtr, voc, harp; Leo Lyons- bass; Alan Young- drums; Tim Hinkley- keys; Steve Gould & Mick Fe’at- b.voc
    From the album: Detroit Diesel (1987)

    Alvin says… this was from 1986 and I had Alan Young on drums. I remember there was an American truck engine called the Detroit Diesel. I contacted the diesel engine people and said ‘I’ve got this great song and you might want to use in their advertising and promotion.’ The guy turned out to be a Born Again Christian. And there’s me singing about meeting prostitutes on the road. This was recorded at the second Space Studio at Wheeler End in Berkshire.

    from the album RX5 (1981)

    Alvin says... this was from ‘RX5’ and my later band with Chris Stainton on piano. I always wanted to be a rock’n’roll guitar picker and this song is my autobiography really. This was a really good live number in the Chuck Berry style. I only met Chuck briefly in a hotel lobby. I bowed down and said ‘You are the king of rock’n’roll’. He looked very embarrassed and walked off.

  • Alvin Lee - Song of the Red Rock Mountain


    From Alvin's last studio album 'Still On The Road To Freedom' (2012)
    Excerpt from the CD liner notes ...freedom from the long tour schedules...
    Freedom from the managers, agents and lawyers who saw me as a money making commodity...
    Freedom from being responsible for satisfying other people’s greed.
    But most of all - Freedom to make music of my own choice without worrying about what other people thought or expected.
    I am never sure which direction my music is going to take, but I do know that to be worth while it has to be a natural progression. It has to evolve freely. For me it has be instinctual & not commercially premeditated.
    Free from undue interference. Free from the many pressures of the rock & roll circus.

    Alvin Lee- gtr, voc; Mel Collins- sax; Tim Hinkley- keys; Ian Wallace- drums; Alan Spenner- bass
    From the album ‘In Flight’ (1974)

    Alvin says… Mel Collins plays a great sax solo and Ian Wallace plays terrific drums on this song that was another bonus track on ‘In Flight.’ It has some of the best drumming I’ve ever heard. Ian could play amazing stuff but not get in the way. Sometimes you get a drummer who can play a great solo but somehow takes over the whole band. Ian played with great sympathy but you’d say ‘Wow, where did that come from?’ He had a photographic memory and always knew where the choruses ended. We’d all turn round to Ian to find out where we were in the tune. I remember once saying to him ‘What key are we in?’ And he shouted back ‘You’re asking me what key it’s in and I’m the drummer? It’s in G!’

  • Steve Howe & Alvin Lee on stage


    Two guitarists, two different styles, both brilliant....
    I remember going to a club in Manchester with the rest of the band, in the mid 60's and watched a really tight outfit called the In sect , from down south. I was totally mesmerised by the lead guitarist on the right ( or his left ) playing a Gibson Semi acoustic,(tobacco), totally absorbed in the music. I thought he's good and he still is was Steve Howe...

  • Alvin Lee & Ten Years After - Live on German TV 1969!


    This clip features a young Alvin Lee & TYA in what looks to be a German TV studio with no audience. It has credits at the beginning and end but it doesn't look like it ever had a final mastering done for broadcast. The band just kind of sits around in between songs, and they do two takes of the Blues number which leads me to think it was never mastered for broadcast. The high point of the show is the 23 min.+ version of I Can't Keep From Crying Sometimes. It's worth watching just for that alone. The songs performed are I Can't Keep From Crying Sometimes and two takes of an Untitled Blues number. The only info I have on this is German TV 1969. This clip is posted for your educational and entertainment purposes by The Rev. Bob Archives. Go out and buy some Ten Years After CD's today and remind yourself what a great band these guys were!
