Editorial Reviews

Alvin Lee has just delivered his finest work of his career with 'Still On The Road To Freedom', a true masterpiece. It contains 13 new Alvin Lee songs in a journey all it's own, traveling from On The Road To Freedom, back to the '50s, up to present day, then arriving fill circle to Love Like A Man, A Ten Years After classic.

In 1972, after Woodstock catapulted Ten Years After into the rock arenas, Alvin Lee decided to take the road to freedom rather than the road to fame and fortune. In 1973, he recorded his first solo work, 'On The Road To Freedom', with Mylon Lefevre. It was a major change in Alvin's work with TYA as that it wasn't just a hard driven rock/blues album, but a collection of introspective songs with acoustic guitars and strong melodies. Alvin never looked back as TYA broke up in 1974.

A true masterpiece of an album, 'Still On The Road To Freedom' will be a fan favorite that surely we can spread to the masses. As Alvin says, he prefers to let the music play and speak for itself.

I've been an Alvin Lee fan since I first bought "Ssssh" in high school in 1969. This CD has some great playing and a number of really tasty songs. For you hardcore fans - to me the sound is more like "A Space In Time" and "On The Road To Freedom" than "Sssh" or "Cricklewood Green".

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.

I received this Album on the day of release thanks to Amazon Prime. Sweet. I pre-ordered it. I was excited when I learned of its availability. On the Road to Freedom is one of my favorite albums. I was a little skeptical therefore about Still on the Road to Freedom because its predecessor included the accompaniment of Steve Winwood, Ron Wood, George Harrison, Ian Wallace, Rebop, Jim Calpaldi and Myron Lefevre. After appropriate attitude adjustment, I gave the CD a turn, and on first listen I was blown away. A perfect follow-up almost 40 years later, with an acoustic, harmonious feel, just like its predecessor. Only the late Ian Wallace of the artists listed above appears on the new album, and then on only one song. But even without those artists this CD holds its own against the first one. We get a remake of Love Like a Man from TYA, and its great. Plus a bonus unlisted track at the end. Trust me and buy this CD if you liked On the Road to Freedom, heck, I'll even refund the purchase price if you're not satisfied. Just let me know.

George: Then Play On.

1st. I would like everyone to kow I am a Huge Alvin lee/ Ten Years After fan! Alvin lee and ten Years AfterStole the WoodStock Film! and as Alvin States in the liner notes of "Still on the Road to freedom" threw them into Super Star status. From playing Culbs and small concert halls to massive stadiums to
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,

Tommy langford

Alvin Lee simply does what he been doing for over 40 years. Puts out another masterpiece of music like no one else. He takes a bit of the 50s 60s and 70s and turns it into a modern day follow up to his 1976 On The Road To Freedom that is just as good but fresh. He is a master musician and songwriter who knows how to build great songs that stand the test of time. I never missed a chance to catch him LIVE in concert and would not today.

Feel like taking a tour? Buy this album and follow Alvin Lee down his road of influences - he will guide you and let you feel him - that's what a great artist does - let's you peek into his soul. Every track offers the listener a little something to take with you - what more can you ask for? One of the best releases of 2012!
