“Ten Years After” by Ten Years After - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1967Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

Debut album from the Nottingham blues rockers who line up: Alvin Lee (guitar, vocals), Chick Churchill (organ), Leo Lyons (bass) and Ric Lee (drums). Side one comes alive at the end with a smooth and mean version of “Spoonful” (Howlin' Wolf, 1960) and their own psycho-rocker “Losing The Dogs”, where a nutter on death-row shows no remorse for his crimes: “Well I'm lying by myself and I'm thinking about my wife - yeah, ha, ha! The last time I saw her she was lying on my knife - and that's a fact!” A cool version of “Help Me” (Sonny Boy Williamson, 1963) finishes the set in a moody blue fashion.
