Recorded Live: 8/4/1975 – Winterland – San Francisco, CA
Alvin Lee – lead vocals, guitar
Chick Churchill – organ
Leo Lyons – bass
Ric Lee – drums
Extraordinary blues/rock guitarist Alvin Lee had already begun pursuing his solo career in earnest by the time he returned for the 28th and final U.S. tour of the original Ten Years After. Upon completion of the 1975 tour, TYA would split up and not return until a reunion was staged in 1989.
Although a cult fave, the band burst onto the world music scene after it appeared in the documentary film, Woodstock, one of whose highlights was the performance of “I’m Goin’ Home” by Lee and the band. This show, recorded at Bill Graham’s Winterland ballroom, opens with a rockin’ (but incomplete) version of the band’s radio hit, “Rock & Roll Music To The World.” They follow it with one their classics, “Love Like A Man.” Muddy Water’s “Good Morning Little School Girl,” is next.
