Format: Audio CD
'In Flight' is a two-disc live recording made by 'Alving Lee & Co.' in 1974 at the Rainbow Theatre in London. It was the follow-up to 1973's 'On the Road to Freedom', Lee's first album without his Ten Years After colleagues. Alvin arrived with a cargo hold ('In Flight' analogy...) of new tunes and a supersized backing band, including horn man Mel Collins and a trio of backing singers called Kokomo. It's a lively, high-energy set, sure to please someone, but probably not the old TYA crowd. Until the second half of the second disc, Alvin's trademark lead guitar excursions are in short supply, instead being supplanted primarily by Collins' up-front and center presence. The texture of the music has changed as well. While Ten Years After segued effortlessly from blues-rock to psychedelia to folk and country-rock, this new Alvin Lee is pounding out something perhaps best described as boogie-rock. 'In Flight' has it's moments, but should certainly not be confused with Lee's gritty and brusk previous work; so be forewarned.

Being different isn't necessarily a bad thing, and this music definitely possesses appeal. The compositions unquestionably announce Alvin as a matured writing talent. There is a wealth of new, well-turned tunes that Lee pulls out of his back pocket here, beginning with the "chug-along blues" (as Lee describes it in his personally scripted liner notes) opener, 'Got To Keep Moving'. Other highlights include the funky 'You Need Love Love Love' which possesses a great vocal hook, the sweet boogie of 'Let's Get Back', and the most TYA-sounding number, 'Ride My Train'. As you move deep into the second disc, Alvin moves his lead guitar heroics to the front burner, displaying his firy skills on tracks such as 'Keep a Knocking', and a Chuck Berry sound-alike 'Johnny B.

This is a wonderful effort by Alvin. Gone are all the pyrotechnic solos (which I love by the way) and the result is a superb, consistent set of songs with a very tight rhythm section. This is one of my most played albums by Alvin. It has sax and Neil Hubbard who is a highly respected session musion on guitar. Add the female backing and it becomes an Alvin solo album, not a continuation of TYA.

I lived in London in 1974. I got up on a Saturday morning and saw that a concert had taken place the night before with the fabulous Alvin Lee performing. I cursed that I didn't know of the concert before hand.
Two years or so later, I was wandering in a used record store back here in the states and saw this album, a two-record set (pre-CD). I read that it was of the concert I'd missed! Needless to say I got the album.
Since CDs have become the norm, I searched for--and finally found on Amazon.com--the CD of show, with some added tunes. Thank you Amazon.com!
It's sort of a rock and roll/soul combination, what with the backing voices along with Alvin's great fingerwork. And, as a previous reviewer pointed out, he does a few Elvis tunes.
If you know Lee's history, he's always claimed to have been fond of Elvis, the "ethnic stuff, before he got into movies," or something like that. His singing voice, the way he does these tunes, is far better than any Elvis impersonator I'd ever heard.
Buy this one, and enjoy it. It's hard to beat a performer like Alvin Lee, and he's better live than in the studio!

Back in 1980 (or early '81), I went to a concert at my university (W.IL Univ.) to see a group I really liked, Molly Hatchet. They were the featured band, and playing back up for them was Alvin Lee. What a phenomenal night that turned out to be! Alvin Lee blew Molly Hatchet off the stage, and gave the appreciative crowd 3 encores to boot before finally apologizing to a hungry Chicago blues audience of students who obviously wanted more. He came out after the third encore and said, "I'm sorry everybody, but we're just the back up band, and we've got to clear our equipment off the stage. Thank you and good night!"
Molly Hatchet was none too thrilled with the audience by the time they came out, and they knew full well who the night belonged to, and it wasn't them. It was just a single man named Alvin Lee. We wished he'd have played all night, and completely forgot about Molly Hatchet.
Anyway, this is a very good Alvin Lee CD which displays his versatility as a great guitarist and true original.

Having been an Alvin Lee fan since the 60"s,I can say that this two disc set gives the listener a true rendition of what Alvin Lee can do with a guitar.From 50's rock,thru the "Blues",with a touch of soul and jazz,Alvin lays it out.You can feel his love of music and the guitar in every track on this set.His playing and vocal renditions make a combination that's hard to beat.

Probably one of the best recordings of Alvin Lee. Contrary to most of his recordings (live or studio), in this one his guitar is not as dominant. The emphasis is in the music and with great contributions from saxophonist Mel Collins. Very enjoyable indeed.

After the halcyon days of Ten Years After, where Lee was all speed and flash, he matured as both a player and singer. This album epitomizes the transition from rock star to musician and is a career highlight. Wonderful stuff!
