Alvin Lee will be missed.

In Hillsboro and (points west) in the early 70s A. Lee was a god. I used to own 3 TYA albums.

He doesn't seem to be getting much respect from the more "sophisticated" git-box aficionados in the popular press.

Saw Ten Years After in Hartford 3/4 of a lifetime ago on one of the wackiest double bills - solo acoustic James Taylor pre-Sweet Baby James opened and nearly got booed off stage by the rowdies that had come to hear Going Home at 110 db. James was pretty good, considering, and Alvin Lee was an electric god. Thanks for the memories and sorry to hear of his passing.

This is insanely good.....

"Tax the rich, feed the poor
Till there are no rich no more

I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you"

My ten year daughter took up the guitar last fall -- don't know where or how she heard it but this is the first tune (even before Taylor Swift) she asked her instructor to teach. The music lives on because the torch has been passed.

Very nice choice Jack.

great talent , thumbs up!

Oh crap. I didn't know Alvin Lee died. Wow. I am getting old. Sometimes this blog hurts a bit.

Wow, how time flies. Listening to this music gives me goose bumps and it takes me to a much earlier younger time for me and all of us that so wonderful and fun. Thank you for the treat. Yikes, he seems to be too young to have left us, what a talent.

That is a bad jam. Nice!

Really hit the spot with that one, Jack. Alvin Lee. "Goin' Home."
