According to the opinion of many experts, lead-gitarist Alvin Lee is Britains greatest blues-rock gitarist who combines Boogie, Jazz, Rock and Blues with an extraordinary technique and speed.

As at the end of Woodstock the enormous crowds let out from the fields of Yasgur’s farm in Bethel, to tell the rest of the world what it had missed, the first words on many of their mouths had been: Ten Years After and Jimi Hendrix.
