Alvin Lee was one of the world’s hottest blues and rock guitarists and singers. He developed his appealing style with Ten Years After, but there are many examples of him experimenting with different moods and genres during his years with the Alvin Lee Band and Ten Years Later. Our recent ‘Best Of Alvin Lee’ album delves into the treasure chest of recordings he had made during those peak years. Alvin Lee was born in Nottingham, England (19th December, 1944) and came from a musical family. While still at school, he learned to play guitar. He then formed Alvin Lee & Co. and recorded ‘In Flight’, ‘live’ at the Rainbow Theatre, London. Alvin built Space Studios at Hook End Manor, inviting friends along to play, including George Harrison.

Lee in 1974 playing his Gibson ES-335 ("Big Red"). Background information. A year later, in response to a dare, Lee formed Alvin Lee & Company to play a show at the Rainbow in London and released it as a double live album, In Flight. Various members of the band continued on with Lee for his next two albums, Pump Iron! and Let It Rock. In late 1975, he played guitar for a couple of tracks on Bo Diddley's The 20th Anniversary of Rock 'n' Roll all-star album. Universal Music Co. Portfolio - A History.

The 17:33 minute Percy's Roots is just a eclectic jazz song but the CD also has the Ride my Train 15:47 minute. I like this CD iit is different than the In Flight album, has a different sound, back up singers, musicians and it has the sound of a live concert. I saw Alvin a couple of times with TYA but never on his own and as you know, the music is very different than Ten Years After. 9 people found this helpful.

In Flight’ is a two-disc live recording made by Alvin Lee in 1974 at the Rainbow Theatre in London. It was the follow-up to 1973′s ‘On the Road to Freedom’, Lee’s first album without his Ten Years After colleagues. It’s a lively, high-energy set, sure to please someone, but probably not the old Ten Years After crowd.
