Average music by an average band
am 12. Oktober 2010
Ten Years After are late comers of the 1960's British Blues Boom. Their distinctive trait is that they stand at the crossroads of 1950's rock'n'roll (Chuck Berry and Little Richard: 3 tracks here are direct, if very bad steals from those legends. One of the tracks was later covered, boogie-style, by Status Quo if I'm not mistaken), electric blues (most of this best of) and post-bop jazz (one track here). Ten Years After are mostly famous for their admittedly excellent performance of 'I'm Going Home' at Woodstock. The version here of said track is from an early-to-mid 1970s Live double LP and is not as good (a big let-down as my vinyl copy of compilation LP 'Goin' Home' with the Woodstock take is in tatters). At the end of the day, Ten Years After are B-listers and this 'best of' is, at best, average. I like 'Love Like A Man' though.
