Records are not for sale - For your viewing pleasure only

Alvin Lee, Ivan Jay and Leo Lyons had local success as a band, known since 1962, as The Jaybirds and later as Ivan Jay and the Jaymen. In 1966 The Jaybirds moved to London, where Chick Churchill joined the group. That November the quartet signed a manager and decided to change its name to Blues Trip, Blues Yard and finally in November 1966, to Ten Years After. In honor of Elvis Presley, an idol of Lee's whose momentous year in rock, 1956, helps to better explain the band's title. The group became the first act booked by the soon-to-be Chrysalis Agency. They received an invitation to play at the Windsor Jazz Festival in 1967, that performance led to a contract with Deram, a subsidiary of Decca the first band so signed without a hit single. In August 1968, the band performed a breakthrough American appearance at Woodstock; their rendition of "I'm Going Home" featuring Alvin Lee as lead singer, was featured in both the subsequent film and soundtrack album and catapulted them to star status. During 1970, Ten Years After released "Love Like a Man", the group's only hit in the UK. This song was on the band's fifth album, Cricklewood Green. The name of the album came from a friend of the group who lived in Cricklewood, London. He grew a sort of plant which was said to have hallucinogenic effects. The band did not know the name of this plant, so the members called their album Cricklewood Green. "Love Like A Man", was the first record to be issued with a different playing speed on each side one a three-minute edit at 45rpm, the other, a nine-minute live version at 33rpm. In 1971, the band released the album A Space in Time. It featured the group's biggest hit, "I'd Love To Change The World", but the band broke up after the 1974. The members re-united in 1983 and in 1988. Finally, in 1994, they participated in the Eurowoodstock festival in Budapest. Alvin Lee has since then mostly played and recorded under his own name. In 2004, the other band members replaced him with Joe Gooch, and recorded the album, "Now".
