Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Say what you will, but England's Ten Years After certainly knew when to peak: their manic, 12-minute workout of "I'm Going Home" (included here) upstaged a veritable army of '60s superstars and remains one of the highlights of the film Woodstock. As blues-smitten U.K. rockers go, TYA may not have been as inventive as the Yardbirds, guitarist/frontman Alvin Lee neither as tastefully polished as Clapton nor as bombastic and exotic as Page, but their sheer dedication and steamroller determination (exemplified by nearly 30 American tours during the Woodstock era) were second to none. This double-disc, 26-track anthology spans the band's eight-albums-in-five-years prime, from its workmanlike 1967 covers of blues staples "I Want to Know" and "Spoonful" through a pair of rare 1968 singles (highlighted by Lee's quirky, country-folk "Portable People") to its 1971 pop hit, "I'd Love to Change the World." Lee's primitivist urges and legendary, lightning-fingered guitar heroics fuel everything from moody, simmering dirges like "Help Me" and upbeat Chi-town shuffles in the "Me and My Baby" mold to the Cro-Magnon riff-rock of "Love Like a Man" and the proto-psych-blues of "50,000 Miles Beneath My Brain." If TYA's music is often as nimble and slick as a stegosaur--and arguably as timely--it's equally as leathery, unrelenting, and hard to ignore. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Stuffed 2-CD anthology of British blues legends May 31, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The tight playlists of Classic Rock radio has shortchanged the legacy of numerous bands, especially those whose reputations were minted in the emerging era of underground FM radio. Today's skyrocketing radio station values have left no time for the extended jams that were TYA's calling card. As such, an entire generation of rock fans knows the band only by their 1971 (air-time-friendly 3'44") hit "I'd Love to Change the World," and the occasional VH1 snippet of their breakout performance at Woodstock. What these fans haven't heard are the riches available on the band's albums, of which there were more than a dozen.
Hip-O's 2-CD collection gathers cuts from eight of the band's original albums (leaving out only 1972's "Rock & Roll Music to the World" and 1974's "Positive Vibrations"), plus a pair of singles and a track from Woodstock, creating a superb overview of the band's original run. This is both a splendid introduction to the band and a well-procured collection of tracks for the TYA fan.
1967's eponymous debut lays out TYA's blues base on four covers, "I Want to Know," Al Cooper's "I Can't Keep From Crying Sometimes," Willie Dixon's "Spoonful," and Sonny Boy Williamson's "Help Me." Even at this early stage Alvin Lee's guitar shows itself to be the incisive instrument that would be showcased in longer jams on later albums.
The 1968 single, "Portable People," is an uncharacteristically genteel A-side for TYA, with a B-side, "The Sounds," that leans heavily towards the psychedelic. Their other non-LP single from the era, "Rock Your Mama" is a straight-ahead blues affair, with a B-side, "Spider in My Web," that takes the sound low and slow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alvin Lee Rides Again April 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD
British blues rockers Ten Years After are finally given a multi-disk set which combines their Decca/Deram material with their later material on Chrysalis. The band is perhaps best known for the lightning fast guitar pyrotechnics of one Alvin Lee. Lee also served as vocalist and main songwriter. The band's appearances at such festivals as Woodstock, the Newport Jazz Festival, the Isle Of Wight, the Texas Pop Festival, and the Atlanta Pop festival cemented the band's reputation as an exciting live concert draw. The first disk concentrates on the band's Deram material prior to the stardom at Woodstock. The band at this point relied more on cover material like Willie Dixon's "Spoonful", Sonny Boy Williamson's "Help Me", and the Blues Project's "I Can't Keep From Crying Sometimes". These covers provide the band with a framework for their blues/jazz/rock improvisations and provide staples for their concert set lists. Other highlights include the jazzy "I May Be Wrong, But I Won't Be Wrong Always" and their most known cut at this point "Hear Me Calling". Cuts like the failed single "Rock Your Mama" are rewrites of blues tunes, in this case B.B. King's "Rock Me Baby". The last cut on the disk "Boogie On" spotlights the individual band members. Leo Lyons was one of the better bass players of the period. Chick Churchill's keyboards provided a great foil for Alvin's guitar, while Ric Lee's drumming could be either jazzy or fat depending upon the situation. My only quibble with the first disk is the exclusion of their jazzy cover of Woody Herman's "At The Woodchopper's Ball."
The second disk begins around the time of Ten Years After's new found popularity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got me through Nam August 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I was a Marine Infantry Radio Operator in the Nam from 1967 to 1970 - yeah, three straight years and then some - and this is some of the music that got me through some dark nights sitting in a hole on Charlie Ridge and in the Arizona...

This is the best rock and roll there is, anywhere, anytime.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Finally Get The Justice They Deserve! January 18, 2004
By Josh H.
Format:Audio CD
There may not have been another band on the planet who could just flat-out ROCK like Ten Years After. Very, very few bands could rival their energy and intensity, fewer still who could have survived their grueling workload. Ten Years After didn't care about being superstars or being famous, they only cared about one thing - blowing your mind with unbelievable music.
First of all, the Woodstock version of "I'm Going Home" was always edited down to 9 minutes. But this compilation features the FULL version, all 12 minutes of it, in it's entirety. There has never, I repeat - NEVER been another song in the world that defines energetic, ballsy, sweaty rock 'n roll like this one. Describing it in words seems almost useless, and the energy that the boys display in the song is practically unearthly. Of course, Alvin Lee is the main hero of the song, unleashing crazy hurricanes of mind-blowing licks that are both fast and controlled at the same time. But the rhythm section is equally vicious, particularly at the end, where Ric Lee (drums) and Leo Lyons (bass) keep pounding their instruments so intensely that you'd think they were trying to shatter them! Definitely the most powerful rhythm section that I've ever heard. This song is just unreal, folks. Play it loud and feel yourself gasping for breath in no time. The end will give you a rush of adrenaline like you've never experienced. Nobody has ever played rock 'n roll like this before or since. Nobody.
This anthology also features four songs from their debut album, which is not available here in America (of course), so that's all the more reason to buy this! I can't discuss all of the songs on here, 'cause there's too many. Suffice it to say that they are ALL excellent and they all jam.
