When it comes to red hot boogie guitar, you can't get hotter than Alvin Lee, especially when he's firing on all fretboards. That's certainly the case with this aptly named Best Of compilation. This unmissable 2CD set is jam packed with dazzling performances by the former Ten Years After guitar hero. We hear Alvin singing and playing on 30 tracks, culled from the many solo albums he released during the years when he led his own bands, from the 1970s through to recent times. Backed by top rock session players, old mates and his regular sidemen, Alvin sounds at home in a variety of moods and styles, from blues to rock'n'roll...
He burns up his fingers and vocal cords on such favourites as Keep On Rockin, Boogie All Day and The Bluest Blues, and the action never lets up. If you remember classics like Pump Iron and Rocket Fuel, then you'll dig more recent examples of Alvin's craft from In Tennessee, the album that celebrated his earthy musical roots. Booklet with authoritative and extensive liner notes written by respected Record Collector journalist Michael Heatley. Expertly re-mastered by Jon Astley (who has worked on recordings by the Who, Led Zeppelin, George Harrison and many others). ~ Amazon

As with many of the other English beat groups of the '60s, Alvin Lee cut his musical teeth in Hamburg, Germany in a band called the Jaybirds. By 1966, back in England, he had changed the name of his band to Ten Years After and was rapidly becoming a major attraction because of the virtuosity of his solo work. Most Americans first became familiar with Lee through his appearance at Woodstock, although he remained active throughout the decades that followed; among his releases were 1974's In Flight, 1986's Detroit Diesel, and 1996's Live in Vienna. Alvin Lee died on March 6, 2013 due to complications from a routine surgical procedure.
