ALVIN LEE R.I.P. 1944-2013

British rock guitarist Alvin Lee, a member of the band Ten Years After, has died aged 68. His family announced on his official website, alvinlee.com, that he unexpectedly died on March 6, 2013 following complications during routine surgery. The BBC also reported that the Nottingham-born musician rose to fame after appearing at the Woodstock festival in 1969. The band, who had eight Top 40 albums in the UK, had their biggest hit in 1971 with I’d Love To Change the World. “We have lost a wonderful and much loved father and companion, the world has lost a truly great and gifted musician,” said the statement from his wife and daughters.

San Francisco 1972 [no label, 2CD]

Live at Winterland, San Francisco, CA; December 2, 1972. Good to very good audience recording.

Thanks to Doinker for sharing this in 2006.

This is what Doinker noted:

After being kept under wraps for so long, I am pleased as punch to present you with this peachy-keen (that’s “DAMN GOOD” in slang English) set from Alvin Lee and Co…

You will notice that they didn’t perform their stock repetoire that evening. Maybe they were dazzled by Messrs Cornick and Co [Wild Turkey had played earlier] and wanted to fight back or something like that. Either way, Alvin is in a startling good mood and most certainly does NOT play as if the janitor plugged him in for the evening. Quite the party animal isn’t he?

Oh, yes… There’s that taper’s assistant going at it again, fortunately not too often. “That’s All She Wrote, Mayn!!!”

You may be able to tune him out, or you may be able to laugh at him or you may be able to laugh with him, but you can’t edit him out. Just think… he was in the presence of Billy Graham AND got to witness this stuff in person. Oh, my God… if all of us could do the same via time machine.

Master AUD reel-to-reel. No eq was used this time around. There doesn’t seem to be much phase shift at all between the channels. The audience goes a bit crazy toward the end.
