    Unfortunately the only song of their that gets regular play on Classic rock stations is I'd Love to Change the World. Some other songs of theirs that really rock are Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, I'm Going Home and Choo Choo Mama.

    That's weird I was thinking about starting a thread for 'Ten Years After' the other day.
    They're a brilliant Blues group but I need to get more of their albums, though.

    I heard the album 'Watt' when I was 10 years old and LOVED IT!


    To me it was very different from the Woodstock recording (which I heard before Watt) due to the stronger sound of the rythmn section on the studio recording.

    That combination with Alvin, to me, was perfect with some added coolness from Chick Churchill on the keys.

    Cricklewood Green is another great one.

    Also check out 'Shhh...' and 'A Space In Time' as well as the earlier works.
     
  10. Somebody was talkin 'bout their album Watt (out in the end of 1970)

    This is a great band but just for 3 albums (4 me naturraly) : Crickelwood Green (april 1970)
    "Watt" and "Space and Time" (from 71) ...this is their top for the rest more largely i reccomend their albums from 69 to 72 (six LP's) but their last from 1974 lack of juice and new horizons ...and their 2 first lp's from 67 and 68 were pure blues without any Progressive vision...

    I can understand why it was a highlight of the show.

    Alvin's guitar sound just jumps out and tears ass on that track.
     
  13. I can't understand as you ...even if i love this band ..."i'm goin home" is not was not so good at Woodstock.... i just love the first part of the song ...but after what's happenin to Lee?...is it the stress? He's playin too fast...but not with grace...whatever ...it's a good song but not as cult as that...

    Shh is a great CD. Goodmorning Little Schoolgirl is sweet, awesome bass in that song. The bassist all around kicks ass.

    Yeah, Ten years after is very good. But there is something about them, that they lack, that seems to keep people from mentioning them amoung the elite classic rock groups. Maybe the passion...or the lyrics are sub par. But thats just my opinion.
