I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Help Me

This is a guy who has been so far under the blues radar that it is almost unbelievable. I talk with guitar players who have been playing and they say...oh yeah...he played that one song on Woodstock. That's his whole deal. Alvin Lee is a spectacular guitar player and a terrific blues player. His band Ten Years After was very experimental for the time and they did a lot of different sounds from blues to "rock and roll". He even ventured into country (British style)and had quite a long career but as with many players was tied to the few songs that gave him airplay and he burned out. He stopped touring for a while. He reformed different bands but never regained (on cd) the magic that was created in these old Ten Years After recordings. Sure there are some gems in everything that he does and I heard a live album that he did a few years back in Italy and it was terrific. Ten Years After has reformed but Alvin refuses to hop the pond so they are with a new guitar player.
