Ten Years After are best known for their platinum-selling album, "A Space in Time" which featured the Top 40 hit, "I'd Love to Change the World", and their prodigious performance appearance at the Woodstock Festival in upstate New York, August 1969. Their rendition of "Going Home" was featured in both the film and soundtrack album and catapulted them to star status.
Original members Ric Lee and Chick Churchill have continued this legacy and are now rounded out by guitarist/vocalist, Marcus Bonfanti, and bass icon, Colin Hodgkinson. "A Sting in the Tale" was engineered and produced by Bonfanti at his ‘Cricklewood Green’ Studios in Cricklewood, North London, and mixed by acclaimed Canadian engineer, Doug Organ, in Edmonton Canada. The 4 bonus live tracks, including "I’d Love To Change The World" were recorded during a subsequent tour in Erfurt, Germany.
As drummer, Ric Lee states:
“The creative process of the studio album was a joy. Writing and recording together, being able to construct songs that reflect the personalities, memories, and experiences of each of the members was extremely satisfying. We’re very happy that Deko suggested adding four "live" bonus tracks to make this the "Deluxe Edition."
The subject material on the album ranges from childhood memories of growing up in post-war Britain, songs of love lost to the rock n roll lifestyle as well as sincere odes to a life well-lived. They pay homage to the steam train drivers of the past and guitar heroes of the future as well as other interesting characters the band have encountered since they embarked on this journey over fifty years ago. Featuring tracks like "Land of Vandals," "Suranne Suranne," and "Up in Smoke", this album has critics raving.
