We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

One of the biggest highlights at Woodstock's '69 Festival, I'm Going Home is a song from Ten Years After. At that moment, only three albums were issued by the band but weren't much succesful... By the way, the Woodstock festival made Ten Years After big stars. While the songs before were a bit old fashioned, the new ones on the three following albums (Ssssh, Cricklewood Green and Watt) feature the best work ever done by the band.
TYA's music is a kind of Rock'n'Roll revival mixed with classic blues. The two first LPs (mostly Undead, 1968) also sounds very like Jazz. But as it was used at that period, many bands fell rapidly in the new Hard Rock era. Ten Years After was one of those bands that couldn't drop their love of "good ol' Rock'n'Roll"... That's maybe why their albums didn't sell as much as Deep Purple's or Led Zeppelin's ...
Because of that lack of big success, internal tensions began between Alvin Lee and the other members (Ric Lee, Leo Lyons, Chick Churchill) and TYA finally disbanded in 1973.
After many years of separation, TYA shortly reunited as the classical line-up in 1983 (for the Reading festival) and in 1989 for a new LP which didn't sold much...
As Alvin Lee and his monumental pride definitely quit the band, the other members finally waited 2002 before recruiting new young member Joe Goock (born 1977 !!) to continue the adventure.
Some may say that the new TYA, called "Ten Years After Now" is nothing without Alvin Lee. My opinion (as humble as it may be) is that Joe Gooch fits the better Alvin's place.
