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,
MIDNIGHT CREEPER-an aptly-named dark and shadowy tune which grabs you because of its unusual sound.
I'M A LUCKY MAN-I dare you to listen to this w/o bouncing around. A hoot.
BLUES GOT ME SO BAD-as only Mr. Lee can play them.
BACK IN 69-a hot little number that will make your feet active.
He finishes the album with an entirely new rendition of the old Ten Years After classic, "Love Like a Man." But keep listening after the song concludes. There is a tag-on sweet little instrumental bit at the end. And if that is the coda to Mr. Lee's remarkable career, then so be it. But...in the liner notes (my best friend Roger says you should always read the liner notes) Lee mentions he culled these 13 tunes from a total of 33 he was working on. Hmmm, I wonder how polished the other 20 were.......?
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 was first blown away by his Woodstock performance (at the movie, didn't make the event) and always considered him a superb guitarist and a purist who never sold out for stardom. I got to see him at a few local clubs and he was not only talented but pretty genuine also. Last time I saw him I had my camera along and he was still an outstanding talent and still carting around "Big Red". The CD Still on the Road showcases the many genres of music he explored and while I am a fan of his Ten Years After Days (in spite of disliking their only commercial success, I'd Love to Change the World) his artistry as a guitarist is evident on all the tracks.
I always thought he was the master and originator of the "guitar face", the grimace that a lot of guitarists emulated when playing intense guitar riffs.
