- Good - "...most of the 14 tracks endure the test of time surprisingly well, [vocalist/guitarist] Lee effortlessly turning out riffs so deep they could withstand snowploughs and singing the blues with absolute conviction and credibility..."
Producers: Chris Wright, Alvin Lee, Ten Years After.
This isn't for Ten Years After completists, but as greatest hits packages go, it's hard to argue with it. It strikes a nice balance between the band's blues-rock roots stuff and its more psychedelic studio work.
Of the former, there's a wonderful and exceptionally mush-mouthed live version (from where and when isn't specified) of their Woodstock showstopper "I'm Goin' Home," as well as a similarly definitive run through of "Good Morning Little School Girl." Representing the latter is their FM hit "I'd Love to Change the World," and the splendidly titled drug inspired anthem "50,000 Miles Beneath My Brain "(eat your hearts out, Amboy Dukes).
