One of the less acknowledged benefits of listening to Radio Paradise is that you often hear music that you dismissed during the foolishness of youth. Over the years I have pulled several records/DVD’s from my collection that I didn’t get back in the day.

If only I could have a second chance at other aspect of my life that I got wrong as a young man!

Nice to hear this again... one of my favorite old college days albums. IMO one of those "perfect" songs: hard to imagine what could be done to improve it. This band really hit their groove on this.

As I listened to this song I heard phrases from several other familiar songs and thought that may have been by design.  But after checking out the info and noticing the date this was released it appears that other familiar songs must have borrowed from this song!

Oh, man, I still have this LP, bought in Argentina in 1971 (I guess). For me, it's the best of Ten Years After (or Alvin Lee, which is the same thing).

This is one of those rare albums that is listenable from start to finish.  Could be considered a concept album  Not a bad song on it.

    As I walked into the room in the middle of this song, I thought I was hearing the bridge
in the Allman Brothers  "Can't you see"  .....I don't know which song came first,
but there are some exact cord patterns in each.. ..  

Alvin wrote some of the most controversial lyrics of the time...
 when he wrote: "Everywhere is freaks and hairies / Dykes and fairies, tell me where is sanity / Tax the rich, feed the poor
 / Till there are no rich no more."——A.Lee

And while it was taken as a pro-conservative message when taken out of context, the song as a whole seems
to suggest that while there is much social discontent and animus between the schools of thought, perhaps
Lee was:  "leaving it up to you, cuz I don't know what to do " —-A. Lee
He's about one rug down from Page, Hendrix, & Clapton which made him one hellava good guitar player. Hall of Fame-er

Me too! I would have never (re)found this track if not for RP. . . mind you it does make me feel a bit old. . . 1971? Ouch. . . it is more like 30 years after now. But they do say you are only as old as the women you feel (or something like that). {#Cheesygrin}
