Over fifty years since the release of their eponymous debut album in 1967, Ten Years After has returned with a new studio album containing twelve tracks titled “A Sting In The Tale”. This “Deluxe Edition” also contains 4 live tracks from the band's recent tour including an amazing rendition of the smash hit “I’d Love To Change The World”, which remains as relevant today as when first released in 1971.
The beginning of their meteoric rise to fame can be pinpointed to their performance at The Woodstock Music and Arts Festival in August 1969. The audience was blown away by the intensity of the band’s performance and their unique combination of jazz, blues, and rock, with their enigmatic frontman, Alvin Lee. This made them one of the biggest bands of the early ’70s.
As well as original members Ric Lee (drums) and Chick Churchill (keys), the band now features bass Icon Colin Hodgkinson (Peter Green, Spencer Davis, Chris Rea) and multi-award-winning guitarist/vocalist Marcus Bonfanti (Van Morrison, Ginger Baker, Ronnie Wood).
