Product Description

2 CDs taken from two February 1970 concerts at the Fillmore East, with only one track ( Love Like a Man ) previously released! The rest is pure jam band material, with Alvin Lee's amphetamine-ized blues licks leading the way. Includes Good Morning Little Schoolgirl; The Hobbit; 50,000 Miles Beneath My Brain; Spoonful; I'm Going Home; I Woke Up This Morning , and more. Band member Ric Lee contributes the liner notes let's boogie!

With its devotion to '50s rock and blues coupled to a manic, if decidedly middlebrow performance tack, Ten Years After could seem positively Jurassic, even by late-'60s standards. This collection culls magnificently recorded performances (kudos to Hendrix/ELP engineer Eddie Kramer) from a February 1970 weekend stand at the Fillmore East, capturing the band at its post-Woodstock performing peak. The running times of most of the tracks (three-quarters of which clock in at seven-plus minutes) will tip listeners to the show's jam-heavy take on covers of Sonny Boy Williamson (an ominous, revamped "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl"), Willie Dixon (a slow, 16-minute burn through "Help Me"), and Chuck Berry (atypically economic romps of "Sweet Little Sixteen" and "Roll Over Beethoven"). But with the band's own primordial originals (the titles "Skooby-Oobly-Doobob" and "Extension on One Chord" speak for themselves) there's an elemental, effusive--and, dare we say it--Ramones-like stoopidity to the tracks. Even Alvin Lee's trademark fret-burner "I'm Going Home" is hard to resist. This set perfectly captures one of the era's hardest working bands in a concise, double-disc time capsule. --Jerry McCulley

I read about this new cd in "Ice" magazine and I had to find a copy. This is a 2 cd import set recorded live at the Fillmore East during 2 nights in New York City. Ten Years After are an interesting band mixing elements of rock, blues, and jazz. The jazz elements are even more evident when they performed live in concert. This enabled Alvin Lee and company to stretch out and improvise within the framework of their songs. This release follows on the heels of two other excellent live albums "Undead" and "Recorded Live". This cd contains live versions of a number of songs not included on the previously mentioned disks. Among the those cuts are a live version on their single "Love Like A Man", and the rarely played Chuck Berry cover "Roll Over Beethoven" found in tandem with "Sweet Little Sixteen". The set list spotlights two cuts from their (unreleased at that point) "Cricklewood Green" album. These are smoking renditions of "Working On The Road" and "50,000 Miles Beneath My Brain". The second disc includes "Woke Up This Morning" and the rarely played by this time "Spoonful". Alvin's faster than light speed runs are spotlighted on "Help Me" and the inevitable "I'm Going Home". The underrated bass techique of Leo Lyons is featured on "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl", while Ric Lee's drumming is featured on the "Hobbit". The collective improvisational skills of the entire band are highlighted in "I Can't Keep From Crying Sometimes" which also contains brief bits of "Cat's Squirrel" and "Sunshine Of Your Love". The cd booklet descibes the concert experience at the Fillmore and is penned by drummer Ric Lee.Read more ›

Every Ten Years After fan in the world should rejoice with this release. A stellar performance remastered to near perfect sound quality ensures the listener a feast of Alvin Lee and the boys. Great liner notes from Ric Lee with a host of photos from the event just add to the CD. The musical selection is what sets this live performance apart from other TYA releases. The band brings out material from Crickelwood Green and a number of never before released live takes from the past as an encore. The live take of "I woke up this morning" followed by "Spoonfull" is worth the price of admission alone. Bottom line on this CD is quality performance. A must have for any Ten Years After fan.

If you are at all a Ten Years After fan, you owe it to yourself to get this 2 disc set. Not only is it the best TYA performance I have heard (makes the Recorded Live CD completely obsolete), but the sound quality is just phenomenal. The remastering makes it sound like it could have been recorded last month. Just to give you an idea of the type of performance it is, out of 12 songs, only two or three are under 8 minutes long (several are over 15 minutes long). Soloing is the order of the day, with Alvin Lee turning in his best stuff yet available. The 16 minute version of Help Me is alone worth the price of the discs (he throws in some slide guitar, which I don't think I've ever heard from him). In the late 60's, I always thought that Hendrix, Clapton, and Alvin Lee were the three best guitarists of their day. Interestingly, I enjoy listening to Alvin Lee more than the other two. That ability of sheer speed while still staying within the structure of the song is something that Clapton and Hendrix never accomplished as well as Alvin Lee. They somewhat meandered while Alvin Lee and his rhythm section stayed in the flow. It takes a recording and performance like the one on these CDs to prove that point.

These excellent quality live Ten Years After recordings were made by Jimi Hendrix engineer Eddie Kramer on Friday February 27 and Saturday February 28, 1970 at the Fillmore East in New York. Ten Years After played two sets on each night and the tracks included here represent the best of those performances. This was midway between the legendary Ten Years After appearances at Woodstock in August 1969 and the Isle of Wight Festival one year later. These Fillmore East shows were also played shortly before the release of the acclaimed "Cricklewood Green" album in April 1970. Songs such as "Love Like A Man", "Working On The Road" & "50,000 Miles Beneath My Brain" are therefore represented. But, in addition to the classics such as "Good Morning Little School Girl" & "I'm Going Home", the real bonus is inclusion of the earlier Ten Years After material - "Help Me", "Spoonful" and "I Woke Up This Morning". The latter two songs were played as special encores for a highly appreciative Fillmore audience. Established Ten Years After fans will drown in delight upon hearing these previously unreleased live tracks. Unlike the polished and somewhat routine sounding 1973 "Recorded Live" European Tour album, these early 1970 Ten Years After performances display an edge and intensity that was characteristic of their live shows during this period. It is shows like these that earned Ten Years After so many fans and made them so popular. For anybody curious to know why so much praise was given to lead guitarist Alvin Lee, buy this CD and you will understand. These unedited live recordings showcase a band that warrants a lot more attention than many of their less deserving contemporaries receive today.
